(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) - Incapsula, a cloud-based website security and performance service, today launched its Web Hosting Partner Program, offering hosting providers, managed security service providers (MSSPs) and website service providers the opportunity to become affiliate and reseller partners of Incapsula’s cloud-based Web Application Firewall and DDoS Protection service. In conjunction with the launch, Incapsula has developed a cPanel plugin, made available with its API, to enable hosting providers to easily integrate and provision Incapsula’s service.
“In order to stay competitive, retain customers and increase revenue, hosting providers are challenged to constantly offer valuable new services to improve security and increase performance,” said Marc Gaffan, co-founder and vice president of marketing and new business, Incapsula. “Incapsula’s Web Hosting Partner Program enables these service providers to easily extend Incapsula’s security and performance enhancements to their portfolio of customers, demonstrating higher value and increasing brand loyalty.”
Incapsula offers websites of all sizes cloud-based enterprise-grade security and performance optimization without installation of hardware and software or changes to the website. By integrating Incapsula’s service as affiliates and resellers, hosting providers can lower support overhead by protecting hosting infrastructure and customer websites, and reduce server load and improve utilization by leveraging Incapsula’s CDN, all while increasing sales revenue.
In order to support the Web Hosting Partnership Program, Incapsula has developed a plugin for cPanel, the only commercially available hosting panel trusted by America’s leading hosting providers. Incapsula’s cPanel plugin and API enables:
Simple Integration – With a single click, hosting providers can integrate Incapsula with their hosting platform, enabling automated provisioning and single sign-on for customers interested in website protection and performance enhancement.
Centralized Management – Hosting providers and customers can view security and performance stats, control account permissions and manage settings and notifications from an integrated management console.
Multi-tenant Design – A multi-tenant reseller portal enables the creation of new customer accounts, remote management of customer security and performance settings and consolidated billing reports.
