StopTheHacker Website Security Suite Continues to Gain Momentum With Web Hosters Worldwide

Adds Seven New Hosting Partners Globally, Extends Reach to 5.5 Million Domains

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/06/12 -- Website security provider StopTheHacker announced today that ten new global hosting partners have adopted its award-winning suite of SaaS website protection products. Adding to StopTheHacker's international scope with website security solutions now distributed in seven countries across 5.5 million domains, the new hosting partners include netclusive GmbH, Usonyx PTE. Ltd., Avanti Hosting, WebTuga LDA, Aprisme SPRL and Zenith Online Solutions.

"StopTheHacker is receiving increasing international recognition and adoption. Website security is moving to the forefront of online security threats, and with the addition of 10 new global hosting partners last month and another 10 this month, it's clear that StopTheHacker is now among the top website security providers worldwide," said Peter Jensen, CEO at StopTheHacker.

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 while less than 10% of all websites are protected. 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 and customer engagement, as well as damage to 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 as well as customer churn, and maintain a more secure infrastructure.

"StopTheHacker's comprehensive website security suite detects and protects against an array of online threats that can severely jeopardize corporations, web hosting providers and their customers. As a hosting provider, we are excited to incorporate StopTheHacker's innovative technology into our offerings and provide clients with a valuable new service," said Robert Simon, Managing Director at netclusive GmbH.

Highlighted features of the 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. Additionally, StopTheHacker recently released an update to its website protection services with two exciting new features: uptime monitoring that reports on the availability of your website over time, and speed monitoring that reports the response times of your website over time.
