StopBadware Releases Best Practices for Web Hosting Providers

March 16, 2011 by · Comments Off on StopBadware Releases Best Practices for Web Hosting Providers 

Hosting ToolboxCambridge, MA — StopBadware announced today the release of its Best Practices for Web Hosting Providers: Responding to Malware Reports, a set of high-level guidelines for hosting providers to follow upon receiving reports of malware on their networks. StopBadware’s best practices set universal expectations for the role of web hosting providers of all sizes in managing badware.

Malicious actors frequently create seemingly legitimate websites that contain or link to malware, or compromise established websites to infect those sites’ users. Security researchers regularly identify these sites on hosting providers’ networks and report them to providers. While some web hosting companies have regular procedures for responding to such abuse complaints, there’s a lack of consensus across the industry about the steps hosting providers should take once a malware report is received. This lack of common standards is compounded by the innate complexity of hosting environments. “When web hosting providers address reports of malware on their networks in a timely manner, they can greatly reduce the spread of badware,” said Maxim Weinstein, executive director of StopBadware. “StopBadware’s best practices aim to assist hosting providers by providing a clear, realistic framework that they can use to streamline response procedures and better protect users.” Read more

March 15, 2011 by · Comments Off on GlobalSign Acknowledged for Largest SSL Certificate Growth in February 2011 

Hosting ToolboxBoston, MA – GlobalSign, one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA), and specialists in SSL security, today announced that it has shown the largest actual increase in the number of SSL Certificates active for the month of February. Enjoying a monthly growth of almost 2000 new secure sites, GlobalSign’s highly trusted SSL technology is being adopted at a faster rate than the other leading SSL Providers Symantec (comprising of its four SSL brands – VeriSign, GeoTrust, thawte and RapidSSL), as well as GoDaddy and Comodo, who all showed a decrease in number of secured sites for the same period.

Between 2008 and 2009 the number of sites secured by GlobalSign more than doubled and subsequent years have seen strong growth rates of 64% and 59% respectively – higher than other major players. These statistics clearly indicate that rising numbers of website owners are realizing the importance of using SSL technology, and that more existing certificate users are deciding to switch from their current vendor to take advantage of GlobalSign’s trusted brand, future-proof SSL security and advanced security features.
