SiteLock named a preferred website security provider of Plesk

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB)December 06, 2018 - SiteLock, the global leader in website security solutions, today announced a partnership expansion with Plesk, the leading WebOps platform and hosting control panel to build, secure and run websites, applications and hosting businesses. With this expansion, SiteLock will become the preferred website security provider for Plesk, simplifying security for web professionals and service providers through its industry-leading malware protection and remediation solutions.

“Cyberattacks are continuing to make headlines as hackers evolve and their attacks become more sophisticated. Proactive website security is essential to combating these bad actors, and stopping attacks before they happen," said Lukas Hertig, Senior Vice President of Business Development & Strategic Alliances at Plesk. "By partnering with SiteLock, the market leader in website security, we have access to industry-leading tools, such as a customized risk score, that will empower both hosting and service providers to proactively educate their customers on key vulnerabilities or potential threats within their websites. Through our deep integration with SiteLock, our hosting partners will be able to quickly deploy tools that ensure the highest level of threat protection.”

The average website is attacked 58 times per day. That’s one cyberattack approximately every 25 minutes. As the threat landscape continues to evolve – it’s no longer a matter of if you’ll be attacked, but when, making website security a top priority. Many service providers rely on providers, like Plesk, to provide a one-stop shop for all their hosting needs. With the integration of SiteLock website security solutions, web hosts now have access to a full service offering that simplifies and streamlines the go-to-market process with a single click deployment.

Through this unique collaboration, web hosts can quickly and easily deploy SiteLock solutions from the Plesk ecosystem without the need for an extension. Plesk customers will now have access to Patchman, which automatically detects and patches vulnerabilities at the server level, as well as the SiteLock suite of powerful website security solutions including industry-leading scanners to automatically find and fix malware and vulnerabilities, along with a Web Application Firewall (WAF).

"We are excited to expand our partnership with Plesk and become their preferred provider of website security solutions," said Tom Serani, Chief Channel Officer at SiteLock. "In the face of an ever-evolving threat landscape, today’s web hosts require proven cybersecurity solutions that mitigate risk in order to stay competitive and drive new business. Working together, Plesk and SiteLock create a unique opportunity to provide innovative and proactive website security to web hosts worldwide.”
