SiteLock and IX Web Hosting Unite to Secure New Online Businesses

IX Web Hosting Now Includes SiteLock Website Security in Hosting Plans

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - July 08, 2014) - SiteLock LLC (www.sitelock.com), a global leader in website security and PCI Compliance, announced today that IX Web Hosting now offers SiteLock to current and new customers of their premium shared hosting plans.

IX Web Hosting has been providing complete website hosting and online services for 15 years and serves more than 115,000 customers with 470,000 unique websites. IX Web Hosting specializes in supporting companies who use common web platforms such as WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla -- running on Linux or Windows. They also include tools such as site builders and Ecommerce plans at no additional cost. 

Customer service is a key focus for IX Web Hosting, and they include 24 x 7 support through multiple channels to make it easy to get help. Many small business owners are not highly technical and IX Web Hosting provides a simple control panel and unlimited bandwidth, disk space and other resources so their users can focus on their business without worrying about their website.

The addition of SiteLock website security services is the perfect fit for customer peace of mind. Because IX Web Hosting cares about creating a safe and secure online experience for website owners and their visitors, they offer the SiteLock basic plan at sign-up, which includes daily malware scans that provide instant notification when malware is detected. Customers can upgrade to plans that include automatic malware removal and a web application firewall as their online business needs change.

"At IX Web Hosting, we deliver premium services that have everything our customers need to run their online business without worries about technology or limitations," states Michael Harris, Vice President of Information Technology, IX Web Hosting. "We realize that online risks are rapidly increasing, and it's very important that we do our part to keep our customers' websites and their visitors secure. And we chose to partner with SiteLock, as the global leader in website security, to protect our customers."

"The approach that IX Web Hosting takes to providing their customers with easy-to-use products and services is directly in-line with our goals at SiteLock," adds Tom Serani, Executive Vice President of Business Development for SiteLock. "The challenge is that, the more common and widely used the web platform, the more vulnerable it is to threats. It's for this reason that SiteLock places such a high priority on securing websites across all popular, as well as custom, hosting and website development platforms."

IX Web Hosting uses h-Sphere, cPanel and Plesk to integrate and offer SiteLock services to their customer base.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
Financial Technology has become a topic of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities. Accordingly, attendees at the upcoming 20th Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York, June 6-8, 2017, will find fresh new content in a new track called FinTech.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands.

In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, discussed why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and mor...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
