What is Sitelock?

SiteLock provides comprehensive, cloud-based website security solutions for businesses of all sizes!

Malware Scanning

SiteLock malware scanning technology reviews all of the files and applications on your website and compares them against industry standards, as well as their proprietary sources, to detect any malware that has been inserted in your website code. If SiteLock identifies website malware or virus on your site, they will notify you immediately via email. The SiteLock dashboard will show a list of infected pages, and their Expert Services team can help customers remove it.

Web Application Firewall (WAF)

A Web Application Firewall (WAF) protects websites from attempts by malicious bots or hackers to break in to your website. Attacking websites through the applications (like your blog or shopping cart) has become the leading way for hackers and cybercriminals to bypass traditional security measures to stead data or traffic. 

Secure Malware Alert & Removal Tool (SMART)

The complex SMART scan takes a comprehensive look at the surface of your website from the outside-in, as well as the files on the back-end from the inside-out, to detect hidden malware. If any website malware is detected, the automated tool quickly removes it so that your website does not become blacklisted or incur any downtime. The SMART system ensures that your customers receive a secure experience when visiting your website.

TrueSpeed Content Delivery Network (CDN)

A Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a large distributed system of servers that are deployed in multiple data centers across the world. This system of servers delivers webpages and other Web content to a user based on the geographic locations of the user, the origin of the webpage, and where the content delivery server is located. The closer the CDN server is to the user geographically the faster the content will be delivered to the user. SiteLock increases your rank with search engines by accelerating your website. It decreases your site’s bounce rate by optimizing your site’s speed.

Blacklist Monitoring & Reputation Management

SiteLock's patent-pending 360-degree scan helps you make sure your website and communications are reaching your visitors as intended in three key ways:

  1. Malware blacklist monitoring: We monitor search engine and proprietary lists of sites reported as malware to make sure visitors arrive at your site, not a "Red Screen" warning from their browser or search engine

  2. E-mail spam blacklist monitoring: We compare your e-mail address, domain name, and e-mail server to industry and proprietary lists used by popular e-mail programs to identify which messages to mark as "Spam". This ensures that your e-mails reach your customers' inbox - not their spam folder.

  3. SSL Scanning: If you have an SSL certificate installed on your site for data encryption, we will scan that certificate to verify that it is not expired or otherwise out-of-compliance with web browser expectations. This prevents users from seeing warnings about data security when they visit your site.

Application Scanning

SiteLock’s scanners identify applications you have installed and which version you have. We compare that to industry and proprietary lists to determine the security of your installation. If we discover a vulnerability in our testing, we report it to you immediately and can help you upgrade your and secure your site.

PCI Compliance

PCI is a security requirement created by the major credit card brands (Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express) in an attempt to reduce fraud and bring all companies who take credit cards up to a minimum level of security. SiteLock offers a simple online SAQ that is accessible directly from your SiteLock dashboard that guides you through the PCI application process and quickly generates the required documentation necessary for compliance. In addition to the application, SiteLock provides you with ongoing website scanning to detect any potential threats that might make your sensitive customer or credit card information accessible.

Database Protection

Protect your database from SQL injections, which give access to your website and customer database. SiteLock SQL injection scanning reviews all of the files and applications on your website to detect any injections that have been inserted in your website code.

Network Security

SiteLock’s network scanning feature checks each port (thousands) on your server to make sure that only the appropriate ones are open for the type of server you are using (e-mail ports for e-mail servers, web ports for web servers, etc.). SiteLock will notify you if anything looks out of the ordinary so you can correct the issue.
