• We’ve been acquired by CloudFlare

    Published by Dr. Anirban Banerjee

    After 4 years, I’m pleased to announce that we’ve been acquired by CloudFlare, the website security and performance company.

    Our mission at StopTheHacker has always been to make website security dead simple for our customers. This acquisition brings end-to-end security to CloudFlare and enables StopTheHacker to benefit from CloudFlare’s global scale. We’re evaluating how best to merge our technologies and will share more details in the future.

    Rest assured, StopTheHacker will continue to work as it always has. We will continue to develop the StopTheHacker product line – in fact we just launched our Japanese version last week! Nothing changes with our current partnerships with GlobalSign, DreamHost, Parallels, Host Europe, Verio or others. StopTheHacker will continue to be sold as a stand-alone product with a focus on bringing new customers and partners to our service.

    The entire StopTheHacker development team is joining CloudFlare. Our head of sales, Ridley Ruth, will stay on board as our general manager responsible for sales and marketing. For sales questions, please reach out to sales@stopthehacker.com.

    We want to thank Runa Capital and the US National Science Foundation. Without their early support, we would not have been able to grow as we did.

    Most especially, we want to thank you, our customers, for your support over the years. You’ve been amazing and we hope to continue to earn your business as part of CloudFlare.
