Hosting Services – Boston, MA – GlobalSign, one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA), and specialists in SSL security, today announced it has partnered with CloudFlare (www.cloudflare.com) to offer its malware detection and early warning system, HackAlert, via CloudFlare Apps. HackAlert will protect CloudFlare’s customer base by identifying drive-by downloads and providing alarms for “zero-day” malware threats hidden in websites, protecting website owners and their customers from the damaging effects of malware.
Everyday thousands of websites are hacked and used as vehicles to distribute malware to website visitors. Malicious code is injected into unsuspecting websites to compromise PCs and spread virus’, hijack computers, or steal personal data. Once a website becomes infected with malware, the damages are usually irreversible; search engines like Google will flag the infected site and alert potential visitors of the danger of visiting the site in the search results and the browser interface, immediately driving down website traffic, and in turn causing loss of brand reputation and revenue.
