In 3 bullets, summarize why this company is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
Research and Development: SiteLock’s dedicated focus on research and development efforts ensures that the company finds and fixes new strains of malware and vulnerabilities faster than anyone else. SiteLock boasts the industry’s largest threat database of more than 10M signatures and growing, which allows us to update services faster than anyone in the industry. SiteLock also uses proprietary malware prediction utilizing common features in malware files to enhance behavioral detection and research capabilities.
SiteLock Risk Assessment: At SiteLock, helping educate customers on the importance of website security is just as important as providing top tier website security solutions. The SiteLock Risk Assessment is a proprietary predictive model used to determine a website’s likelihood of attack. During each assessment, SiteLock leverages over 500 variables to calculate a risk score on a scale of low, medium and high. When a website indicates a high-risk score, it is nearly 12 times more likely to be exploited than the average website. If a website is rated with a medium risk score, it is 4 times more likely to be compromised than the average website. A low risk score indicates that the website is just as likely to be compromised than the average website. Along with their Risk Assessment score, customers are provided an in-depth explanation as to why they are receiving a certain score and how to address any issues.
Massive Scale: SiteLock scans more than 200 million web pages, analyzes more than 300 million source code files and blocks more than 4 million threats daily to find, fix, and prevent threats faster than any other security option available. Constantly analyzing and monitoring this massive global dataset fuels updates to existing products in real time and helps develop new products to find and automatically fix new strains of malware and vulnerabilities.
