In less than 300 words, summarize the achievements of the company in the nominated category
In Q3 2017, cyberattack attempts increased 16% over the previous quarter. As hackers become more bold and cunning, the need for powerful and reliable website security solutions continues to grow. SiteLock was founded in 2008 with only 10 employees and a shared vision of offering affordable website security to small businesses, a previously underserved market.
For most small business owners, their website is their most visible and profitable asset. However, prior to SiteLock, it was nearly impossible for these SMBs to protect and recover from the aftermath of a website attack.
SiteLock was inspired to help small businesses thrive. Through affordable and innovative products, 24/7 U.S-based support, and exceptional customer service, SiteLock has been able to not only help website owners recover from website attacks, but proactively prevent them from happening.
As a result of these efforts, SiteLock has grown to 225 employees, with twelve million customers and is recognized as the only web security provider to offer automated, comprehensive, affordable solutions to small businesses and enterprises alike. With over 500 partnerships, SiteLock secures more websites worldwide than any competitor. Furthermore, the company has increased its revenue by 479% in just five years, has added an additional 25,000 square feet to its office space, and will continue to grow with plans to double its workforce over the next year.
SiteLock’s unique positioning and continued growth has garnered numerous industry accolades, including: 2017 ‘100 Best Companies in Arizona’, the prestigious Deloitte Technology Fast 500 award for three years in a row, ‘2017 Top Companies to Work for in Arizona’, Inc. 5000 and more.
