SAN FRANCISCO, CA – February 22, 2012 – Host Europe Group – the largest privately owned hosting group in Europe – has today announced that it has partnered with website security services provider – StopTheHacker – to offer its SaaS website security services throughout Europe. Host Europe Group will roll out StopTheHacker’s comprehensive suite of web protection services across all of its companies – with Heart Internet – its UK reseller hosting company – being the first in the Group to launch with it.
This will be closely followed by a roll out across other Group companies – including its UK market leading brands of 123-reg and Webfusion, along with Host Europe in Germany. Globally the Host Europe Group manages close to 4.5 million domains, has 1 million customers and is expanding internationally. It delivers domain registration, mass hosting, customized managed hosting, cloud hosting and an emerging software-as-a-service offering, to its growing customer base.
Speaking of the partnership, Thomas Vollrath, CEO of the Host Europe Group said:
“We chose to partner with StopTheHacker because we like the fact that their service is unique in that it is designed for website owners and website providers, rather than for individual computers. Where this becomes important is around the growing number of malware attacks, which can be severe in terms of increased support costs, damaged reputation, increased churn and lost revenues. StopTheHacker’s suite of services helps catch more malware than other solutions on the market, and we feel this will be of great interest and value to our customers who need more than ever to protect their online reputation”.
“This is our largest strategic partnership in the European web hosting market to date,” said Peter Jensen, CEO of StopTheHacker. “The Host Europe Group has a growing reputation for delivering cutting-edge hosting services to their customer base. We believe our web healthcare services will be of significant interest to all businesses whose reputation and profitability depends on maintaining a malware-free website.”
StopTheHacker is a highly focused website security service company, providing SaaS services to web hosters, website owners, administrators and web designers to help them detect and recover from malware attacks. Stop The Hacker’s technology, supported by the National Science Foundation, has won multiple awards since 2009. StopTheHacker serves customers all over the globe, protecting their online presence from emerging threats.
