SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 12, 2012) - StopTheHacker, one of tech's hottest and award-winning startups based in San Francisco, CA, announced today major new partnerships with hosting giants DreamHost and ServInt, supplementing StopTheHacker's market reach with an additional 1.5 million domains.
The new partnerships signify the hosting industry's rapidly growing concern over web malware that infects numerous websites, demonstrated by the 9,500 that are blacklisted by Google on a daily basis. Today less than 5% of all websites are protected.
Damage to websites from blacklisting or infection can be substantial. It can include 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.
Reputable hosting companies like DreamHost and ServInt have recognized the urgent need to offer their customers an affordable method to ward off hacker attacks that often result in immeasurable loss of revenue and destroyed reputations for website owners. Providing malware detection and eradication becomes a symbiotic relationship for the hosting companies and their customers.
For many small business website owners who are unfamiliar with the complex and often foreign world of technology, getting attacked by hackers somehow translates to 'something must be wrong with my hosting company.' By offering StopTheHacker's Artificial Intelligence-based SaaS products that detect and automatically remove web malware, hosting companies in a sense protect their own reputation with their customers, creating a chain reaction of safety and trust.
DreamHost, founded in 1997, was the quintessential startup in its day. The founders relied on creativity and innovation to grow steadily over the years into the respected hosting giant it is today. "As companies both laser-focused on innovation and state-of-the-art technology, our partnership with StopTheHacker is a match made in heaven. They really understand the security needs of a web host and their products will make it a lot simpler for our customers to protect their websites from badware," said Dallas Kashuba, Co-Founder at DreamHost.
ServInt has been an innovator in virtualized hosting technology since its founding in 1995, and is known for industry-leading reliability and impeccable, expert customer service. ServInt COO Christian Dawson said, "In a crowded market, ServInt's primary differentiator is our ability to provide informed, consultative guidance to web-centric businesses of all sizes. StopTheHacker's malware detection and removal services strongly enhance our ability to provide meaningful solutions to the problems our customers frequently face."
As partners of StopTheHacker, both DreamHost and ServInt will benefit from a bevy of advantages, including the ability to generate additional revenue from their hosting customers by offering StopTheHacker's unique and advanced malware detection and automatic removal services. In addition to creating a dramatically more secure hosting environment for their customers, they will also pass on StopTheHacker's other equally powerful services such as Uptime and Speed Monitoring, Blacklist and Reputation Monitoring, Vulnerability Assessment and Facebook Wall Monitoring.
"These services will place DreamHost and ServInt in an elite group of industry leaders who understand their customers' needs even before the customers themselves do, effectively increasing brand loyalty and lowering churn," said Peter Jensen, CEO at StopTheHacker.
StopTheHacker will be at HostingCon, Booth #102, July 16-18, 2012 in Boston, MA. To schedule a demo of the product or a meeting at HostingCon, contact Oliver Bock, email@example.com. For more information on StopTheHacker's full suite of products, visit www.stopthehacker.com.
