Nottingham (PRWEB UK) 23 February 2012
Web hosting provider Heart Internet (http://www.heartinternet.co.uk) announced on Monday it has partnered with StopTheHacker (http://www.stopthehacker.com), becoming the first UK web host to offer their SaaS website security services, along with a customised light version for Heart Internet reseller customers.
As part of the partnership, Heart Internet is integrating StopTheHacker’s tools into their control panel to offer website security and online reputation monitoring services directly to their customers and for their resellers to sell to clients. StopTheHacker provides customers with software to protect their websites from existing malicious code injections and known malware. The software is fully hosted in the cloud and is designed to complement existing anti-spam, anti-virus and network firewalls. Additional features include in-depth website vulnerability reports to determine if a site is vulnerable to a hacker exploit, and blacklist and reputation monitoring scans to determine if a website has being blacklisted in the search engines so users can take action to improve their online reputation.
The importance of maintaining an on-going security presence was highlighted recently by research conducted by Verizon into website data breaches. Their study found that 92% of breaches came from external agents using multiple methods to achieve their goals, with 89% utilizing some form of hacking and 79% incorporating malware.
“With so many potential suppliers for a customer to choose from, your e-business’s reputation has never been so important. Getting hacked and blacklisted by major search engines such as Google, Bing and Yahoo would be devastating for any online business,” said Heart Internet director Jonathan Brealey. “Using StopTheHacker, website owners and online businesses can become more proactive in preventing attacks on their website and website visitors, and secure their reputation.”
