Cybersecurity solutions provider SiteLock will become the preferred website security provider for IONOS, one of the largest hosting providers in Europe serving 8 million customers and 12 million domains. IONOS will add SiteLock’s customized risk score to its portfolio in addition to the company’s other website security solutions.
Providing individual website risk scores would help educate customers on their risk of compromise and the critical importance of making proactive decisions about their security to prevent any business disruptions. Products will be available on an individual basis, as well as through packages designed to meet specific customer needs.
“Cyberattacks continue to make headlines as bad actors become more sophisticated in their techniques. Proactive cybersecurity is essential to help prevent attacks before they happen,” said Achim Weiss, CEO of IONOS. “By partnering with SiteLock, we have access to industry-leading technology that enables us to provide our customers with the highest level of threat protection, as well as a customized risk score that alerts them to potential threats or vulnerabilities within their websites. By providing this level of visibility, customers can be proactive and take action quickly, which vastly improves their security posture while optimizing business performance.”
IONOS was created in 2018 from the merger of 1&1 and IaaS provider ProfitBricks. IONOS is part of the listed United Internet AG. The IONOS brand family includes STRATO, Arsys, Fasthosts, home.pl, InterNetX, SEDO, United Domains and World4You. Founded in 2008, SiteLock protects more than 16 million organizations worldwide.
“We are excited to expand our partnership with IONOS 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, IONOS and SiteLock create a unique opportunity to provide innovative and proactive website security to an expanded channel of customers worldwide.”
