StopTheHacker Website Security Suite Adds 10 Hosting Partners Globally

Security solutions are now distributed in six additional countries

Rust, Germany — March 21, 2012 — At WorldHostingDays, website security provider StopTheHacker today announced that 10 new global hosting partners have adopted its award-winning suite of SaaS website protection products. StopTheHacker’s security solutions are now distributed in six additional countries by their region’s leading web hosting providers, which manage over 5.5 million domains. International providers include PacificHost, Host Europe Group, Webfusion, Heart Internet, 123-reg, CloudFlare, Web of Trust, ReadySpace, Softcom, OzHosting and A Small Orange. StopTheHacker is a sponsor at WorldHostingDays, held March 20-23, 2012 at Europa-Park, Germany.

“The StopTheHacker website security suite detects and protects against an array of online threats that can do severe harm to corporations, web hosting providers and their customers. Their innovative website protection tools have prevented many of our clients from being blacklisted by Google and experiencing lost revenue due to downtime caused by malware,” said John Roberts, Platform Lead at CloudFlare.

Website hacker and malware attacks are a serious and growing problem, particularly for small businesses. Six thousand websites per day are blacklisted by Google due to inadvertent malware infestation, and between 2.5 percent and 5 percent of all hosted websites are infected. Current antivirus software discovers only 40 percent of harmful web malware. Because much of the harmful code is dynamic and new, traditional signature-based security solutions are not able to identify it.

Damage to websites from blacklisting or infection can be substantial, including direct loss of revenue, accessibility, customer engagement and reputation. A blacklisted website can remain unavailable for days. Infections degrade the performance and stability of customers’ websites, resulting in increased demands on expensive tech support hotlines and customer churn. With StopTheHacker, web hosters can protect customers, lower their costs for support and data centers, and have a more secure infrastructure.

Highlighted features of the just-released new product suite include: automatic malware removal that works the instant an infection is detected, scanning of corporate Facebook walls, and language translation infrastructure enabling websites to easily roll out different languages (German support available now). Using machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) techniques, StopTheHacker’s comprehensive advanced website security suite gives organizations of all sizes the tools to automatically prevent, detect and recover from malware and hacker attacks.
