GlobalSign and Armorize Launch HackAlert Web Malware Monitoring Solution

HackAlert Monitors GlobalSign Customer Websites for Malicious Code Injections That Install Unwanted Malicious Software on Website visitor PCs

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - February 16, 2011) -   Armorize Technologies, the world's leading Anti-Web Malware solutions developer announced its partnership with GlobalSign, one of the world's leading Digital Certificates providers, to monitor GlobalSign customer Websites for signs of malicious code injection.

Malicious code injection, also known as "Drive-by Downloads," has rapidly become the primary method for distribution of malicious software across the globe. Hackers wanting to propagate their Malware infect legitimate websites with unassuming lines of code designed to overpower Web browsers and install Malware onto the Personal Computer of anyone visiting the site. This allows Hackers to capture any and all private information, including passwords, emails, bank account and credit card numbers from the infected PCs, as well as develop large botnets, networks of compromised computers directly under the control of the Hacker. Botnets are often used in the execution of Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attacks to flood infrastructures with more traffic than they can handle, bringing the sites down. A recent example is the Anonymous group's attack on VISA and Mastercard in retaliation for refusing Wikileaks' business.

Search engine infrastructures, including Google, constantly monitor for signs of malicious injection and post warnings against visiting infected sites. Warnings often redirect users away from, or block access to the site via various "safe browsing" plug-ins and APIs resulting in overnight drops in traffic, destroying a website's retail or advertising revenue. Removing these warnings can be difficult and time-consuming.

Armorize's HackAlert solution leverages multiple technologies to detect injected code and Drive-by Downloads on customer websites. Instant notification of an event, combined with injection details facilitate removal of the injected code and empowers Website owners with the information necessary to protect their online brand and reputation.

Armorize is currently the largest Web Malware monitoring company in the world, monitoring millions of sites every day for signs of Web based Malware. The partnership with GlobalSign will bring a new dimension to the meaning of certification and security, allowing all of GlobalSign's SSL certificate holders to further illustrate their commitment to a safe and secure online experience. GlobalSign will be delivering a baseline monitoring service to their customers free of charge, with the option to upgrade to premium service offerings.
