“The new offering in hosting packages will enable a complete scan of online businesses files and codes, thus ensuring their website is malware-free. In addition, they can display a SiteLock ‘Trust Seal’ on the webpages as visual proof once the website is determined as secured.”
“We are confident that our customers will appreciate the added-value to their hosting package and thus improve their online customer conversion rate with the ‘Trust Seal’ guarantee notification,” adds Chan.
Exabytes incorporated the new security features through the OpenSRS API to provide SiteLock website security products to its customers. Existing Exabytes customers will be able to purchase the website scanning tools through the Exabytes control panel.
