Patchman, best known for patching application vulnerabilities and helping hosts stop abuse before it begins, is expanding its product offering for the first time since being acquired by SiteLock in July 2017. Patchman, which is based in the Netherlands, was founded in 2015 with the goal of securing CMS applications from the hosting provider level to protect customers who did not update their applications in a timely manner. Up until now, Patchman has focused on the “Big Three” of open source content management systems – WordPress, Joomla!, and Drupal – covering core application vulnerability patches. Now, for the first time, Patchman is expanding their offerings into both ecommerce and plugins – offering patches for Magento core vulnerabilities and WooCommerce vulnerabilities.

We are excited to announce that SiteLock®INFINITY™ was recently recognized as a winner of the 2017 Cloud Computing Excellence Awards by TMC’s Cloud Computing Magazine. The Cloud Computing Excellence Awards recognize companies and products that most effectively deliver network security through cloud platforms and provide security for cloud based applications.
INFINITY is a state of the art malware and vulnerability remediation service featuring unique, patent-pending technology. INFINITY combines deep website scanning and automatic malware removal with unrivaled accuracy and frequency. Designed to scan a website from the end-user’s point of view, it catches any trace of malware before the user does.
Websites experience 22 attacks per day on average. That’s more than 8,000 attacks per year, per website, according to recent SiteLock data. SiteLock INFINITY provides always-on, continuous scanning to detect vulnerabilities and automatically remove malware the moment it hits. Once the initial site scan is complete, it scans again to ensure constant surveillance and protection with the highest degree of reliability.
Since 2008, we’ve remained dedicated to “protecting every website on the internet,” and SiteLock INFINITY helps us deliver on this mission.
Thank you to TMC’s Cloud Computing Magazine for honoring SiteLock INFINITY with a 2017 Cloud Computing Excellence Award!

Did you know that the more complex and feature-rich a website is, the more likely it is to be compromised? The problem at hand is, website owners might not be aware of all the potential security risks associated with their websites until after an issue has occurred.
In this infographic we compare celebrities to websites to help illustrate the correlation between website popularity and an increased likelihood of cyberattacks.
The legal industry finds itself in the upper echelons of companies when it comes to the fiscal impact of a cybercrime. However, many are ignoring this risk. According to the American Bar Association’s (ABA) 2015 Legal Technology Survey, about half of firms said they had no response plan in place to address a cybersecurity breach.
Furthermore, Cybersecurity Ventures predicts the costs associated with a cyberattack could balloon to $6 trillion globally by 2021. To put that in perspective, if cybercrime were a country, the number would represent the fourth highest Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in the world.
To better understand the costs associated with cybercrime it is helpful to group the expenses in two buckets, direct and indirect.

To kick-start our series, we sat down with a member of the SiteLock Research team to showcase what a day in the life as a SiteLock Website Security Research Analyst looks like.
At SiteLock, we partner with the largest hosting providers around the world to secure more than 6 million websites. In speaking with all of our customers, we often get asked, “What is the difference between the security provided by my host vs. the security provided by SiteLock?”
It’s important to understand that your website isn’t entirely protected by your hosting provider, and despite being hosted in a secure server environment, your website is still at risk of cyberthreats without the proper website security.
