SiteLock and GoDaddy Alliance Strengthens Online Business Security Focus

GoDaddy, the Largest US-Based Web Technology and Service Provider, Now Offers SiteLock

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - June 18, 2014) - SiteLock LLC (www.sitelock.com), the global leader in website security and PCI compliance, announced today that its partnership with GoDaddy can change the way small business owners think about their websites and customer experience. Both companies have been dedicated to helping small businesses succeed since their respective inceptions. This alliance solidifies that message and highlights the importance of complete website security as a success metric.

GoDaddy provides all of the tools necessary for website owners to build, manage and grow their online presence. With the focus of making business easy for their customers, GoDaddy offers solutions ranging from domains to a variety of web hosting plans to professional services. The addition of the SiteLock website security service completes their portfolio and is now available for their 12 million customers through the GoDaddy control panel.

The 2014 Data Breach Investigation Report, just released by Verizon, indicates that approximately 35% of all breaches were attacks aimed at web applications. This category is also the fastest growing breach type. SiteLock can automatically remove malware and proactively protect web applications, with the proper security plan. SiteLock scans more than a million websites daily to keep their customers' websites and visitors safe.

"Online security is vital to any small business, which is why we partnered with SiteLock," said GoDaddy Vice President and General Manager, Security Products Wayne Thayer. "SiteLock makes it easy for our customers to keep their websites safe and secure, allowing them to focus on their business goals and on living their passion."

"GoDaddy was looking to enhance their solution set with complete website security for their customers to support their goal of helping businesses attract and retain customers," said SiteLock Executive Vice President of Business Development Tom Serani. "Security is such an important component of customer acquisition and retention. And this strategic relationship is directly in line with our goal of quickly increasing awareness among small and mid-size businesses about the risk of online threats and steps they can take to protect their brands."

Already showing strong adoption among GoDaddy customers, SiteLock's automatic malware removal tool (SMART) is currently active for nearly 40% of their joint customers. Together, the companies will be able to quickly identify new malware strains and protect Internet users from these threats, keeping thousands of websites clean and safe.
