SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/13 -- Award-winning tech startup, StopTheHacker, is thrilled to announce the addition of their vulnerability patching service to its long list of tech services. The announcement from the San Francisco-based startup comes not a moment too soon as security concerns are at an all-time high worldwide. According to the just released White Hat Security Statistics Report, which measures website security vulnerabilities across a wide range of industries, 86% of websites assessed had at least one major vulnerability while the average number of vulnerabilities per website was 56. In fact, less than 5 percent of all websites today are protected, while the amount of infected websites have increased by 70 percent since last year, StopTheHacker's analytics find. Google alone is identifying more than 9,500 infected websites on a daily basis.

Unfortunately even major corporations struggle to have adequate security for their online presence in light of the rapidly evolving forms of cyber attacks. Today's businesses need the added ability to check for potential vulnerabilities and the capability of patching those vulnerabilities once they've been identified.

StopTheHacker has recognized the very real need for services that go above and beyond simple vulnerability assessment. They understand the need for something that not only detects existing vulnerabilities but also and eliminates these for the customer as a first step towards better website security. Anirban Banerjee, Co-founder of StopTheHacker, says: "Many of our customers get re-infected after we detect and remove the malware from their websites because the hacker will use the same vulnerability that they used to previously infect their website. Customers were asking us for a service to patch these vulnerabilities for them." He adds: "We are seeing that more than 80% of all websites have vulnerabilities and that our customers neither have the time nor the expertise to do this for themselves and their web developers and our competitors in most cases are charging them 5 to 10 times this amount to do the same thing."

Just like a computer's operating system, a website's Content Management System (CMS) and various plugins will be secure from known vulnerabilities when patched but Hackers are always looking for new ways to hack websites so you could be vulnerable in between updates and patching. To significantly boost your website security StopTheHacker's vulnerability patching service should be accompanied by an active and constant malware detection service.
