In a bid to protect as many users as possible by default, Clef has partnered with Installatron. Founded in 2004, Installatron is one of the most popular script installers used on the web. Similar to Fantastico and Softaculous, Installatron is a script installer that enables users to quickly install more than 170 different applications including, WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla.
Clef is a mobile app that replaces usernames and passwords, enabling users to log in easily with their smartphones. The Clef WordPress plugin is growing rapidly in popularity, with over 130,000 downloads and over 15,000 sites using the service. The partnership enables automated WordPress installs from Installatron to have Clef support out of the box. The partnership also enables webhosts that use Installatron to be added to Clef’s Safer Hosts Program.
“Making two-factor accessible around the web is a critical step in securing our lives online,” said Brennen Byrne, CEO at Clef. “Protecting new users by default, instead of requiring research and expertise, is how we will build a safer Internet. Installatron has been a leader in providing secure infrastructure for their huge customer base and we’re excited to be a big part of it.”
Earlier this year, Clef partnered with Softaculous to provide two-factor authentication to automated WordPress installs. By leveraging partnerships with companies like Softaculous and Installatron, Clef is rapidly making a huge impact in securing the web by default.
