SiteLock Announces Solution to Automatically Remove Malware & Spam from Website Databases

New enhancements to SMART Database extend support across WordPress, Joomla!, and any other web application that uses a MySQL database.

SiteLock, a global leader in cybersecurity solutions for small businesses, today announced new feature enhancements to SMART® Database (SMART/DB™) which extends monitoring and scanning support for Joomla! and any other web platform using a MySQL database in addition to existing WordPress capability. With this industry-first offering, 90 million global small and medium-sized businesses can now automatically protect their website databases from various types of malware that could steal customer data, allowing them to conduct online business safer than ever before.

A database controls, writes, and processes all dynamic data that is collected and stored on a website including form completions, online purchases, and various types of content. While a database is a powerful piece of a website’s infrastructure, according to SiteLock data, 30% of malware cleaned was located within a website’s database. These types of attacks can threaten customer data, potentially impacting a small business’ reputation, or worse, its ability to stay afloat.

“Given that most small businesses do not have the budgets or resources to constantly monitor every aspect of their websites, including their databases, they are at an even greater risk of potential compromise,” said Neill Feather, Chief Innovation Officer at SiteLock. “If left undetected, a compromised website database can have a devastating impact on a small business – exposing customer data and potentially impacting its bottom line. Should anything malicious occur in the database, the entire online history of a small business, such as posts, comments, and customer records– may be lost forever. SiteLock is the first security provider to solve this problem by delivering automated database monitoring and remediation that is affordable and accessible to any small business.”

The threat landscape continues to evolve at an alarming rate. The average website is attacked approximately every 23 minutes or 62 times per day. It’s no longer a matter of if you’ll be attacked, but when. The updates to SMART/DB provide a way for any small business owner, or even bloggers who aggregate an audience, to fortify against these growing threats with an advanced level of detection.
