StopTheHacker Launches Official VAR ProgramPremier Partnership Opportunity for Resellers Wishing to Offer a Comprehensive Suite of Services for Safeguarding Websites (February 24, 2012)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/24/12 -- SaaS website security services provider StopTheHacker today officially launched its VAR program, offering resellers the opportunity to provide a unique anti-malware security service for websites to their customers. With the threat of malware, hackers and other online abuse, website protection is vital for the majority of today's business owners. StopTheHacker's patent-pending artificial intelligence engine provides a new type of protection for websites, including matchless features like automated malware cleanup and Facebook protection.
StopTheHacker is seeking 20 to 30 active VARs in North America who, in return for offering StopTheHacker's unique suite of web security services, will have the opportunity to add additional revenue stream while differentiating themselves from their competition. First movers will also receive exclusivity in some U.S. markets and be able to sell at a high margin.
"We've had tremendous traction selling through our web hosting partners. Our partners are now rolling out premium website protection to millions of websites and protecting these sites against malware, hackers and other online abuse," said Peter Jensen, CEO of StopTheHacker. "Our goal is to bring this service directly to companies via the reseller channel."
The Next Generation of Security: The Website Security Market
Much like the golden opportunity with the PC anti-virus market 15 years ago, the burgeoning website security market represents a greenfield opportunity for VARs, with fewer than 10% of all websites protected. New Web 2.0 malware is dynamic, but current anti-virus software that relies on signature detection catches only 40 percent of harmful web malware. Today, more than 75 percent of hosted websites have vulnerabilities, just waiting for attack. More than 100 million websites are unprotected. 6,000 websites per day are blacklisted by Google due to inadvertent malware infestation. The associated threats to security and corporate reputations are expected to increase dramatically over the next three years.
StopTheHacker's proprietary, patent-pending technology helps solve web-scale security problems from malware on websites and other types of online abuse. The suite of services allows organizations of all sizes to automatically prevent, detect and recover from hackers and malware attacks. StopTheHacker's self-adapting capabilities constantly monitor new strains of malware and build a profile of emerging threats. This allows them to identify zero-day attacks originating from never-before-identified malware. Services include Website Health Monitoring, Vulnerability Assessment, Blacklist and Reputation Monitoring and Facebook Protection. These services are packaged in four different editions, serving all possible customer types.
StopTheHacker is a highly focused website security service company, providing SaaS services to web hosters, website owners, administrators and web designers to help them detect and recover from malware attacks. StopTheHacker's technology, supported by the National Science Foundation, has won multiple awards since 2009. StopTheHacker serves customers all over the globe, protecting their online presence from emerging threats.
