(Gawkwire) – SiteLock LLC (http://www.sitelock.com), a global leader in website security solutions for online businesses today announced an alliance with Tech Data Corporation, one of the world’s largest wholesale distributors of technology products. With this agreement in place, the award-winning cloud-based website security services provided by SiteLock will now be available through Tech Data’s worldwide network of more than 60,000 value added resellers (VARs).
Until recently, SiteLock’s primary customer acquisition channels have been direct or through strategic website hosting partners. The increased demand in the marketplace for comprehensive protection from web-based attacks has resulted in SiteLock developing channel relationships in additional market segments, which includes IT companies and managed service providers (MSP).
"SiteLock is constantly looking for ways that will enable us to protect small businesses online." said Givonn Jones, Business Development Manager at SiteLock. "We believe that VARs are the catalyst for change for small business owners. They play a huge role in influencing their decisions because they spend a lot of time listening to concerns, resolving issues, and improving operations. The Tech Data StreamOne platform enables SiteLock to connect with a large number of VARs and easily provide greater value for their customers. It also gives VARs the opportunity to build cloud-based website security into their portfolio.”
“Our StreamOne partnership with SiteLock reaffirms Tech Data’s commitment to provide our customers with innovative software that will continue to help them meet their business goals,” said Stacy Nethercoat, Vice President of Software Product Marketing for Tech Data. “By offering SiteLock’s website security technology, which includes deep 360-degree website scanning, proactive malware detection, business verification and expert security services, our network of resellers is able to provide a much needed business value to end users.”
