GlobalSign Adds StopTheHacker Malware Monitoring Services to SSL Certificates

StopTheHacker's Comprehensive Website Protection Technologies Aid GlobalSign Customers in Safeguarding Their Websites, Reputations and End-Customers' Trust

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/29/12 -- GlobalSign (www.globalsign.com), one of the longest-established Certification Authorities (CA) and providers of Digital Certificates worldwide, today announced its partnership with StopTheHacker (www.stopthehacker.com), a leadingweb malware, security and reputation protection solution provider. The partnership with StopTheHackerwill provide advanced malware detection for GlobalSign's SSL Certificate customers, allowing for the identification and timely removal of malicious code before websites become blacklisted by search engines such as Google, damaging company reputation and diminishing levels of customer trust.

Malware, including viruses, Trojans and spyware, is now being more effectively distributed by the use of "drive-by downloads," a hacker technique resulting in the unauthorized download and installation of unwanted malicious software (malware) onto the client PC of anyone visiting an infected website. GlobalSign provides varying levels of malware detection features to detect known and unknown forms of malware free of charge with all retail SSL Certificates (including AlphaSSL, DomainSSL, OrganizationSSL and ExtendedSSL), and standalone bespoke solutions are available for larger enterprises and hosting companies for wide scale non-SSL site monitoring.

By joining forces with StopTheHacker, GlobalSign can provide a malware monitoring service whereby all pages of a customer's website are non-intrusively monitored on a daily basis (hourly with ExtendedSSL)and site owners are immediately alerted via email if malware is found. With GlobalSign SSL Certificates providing a more comprehensive level of service and all-around experience for end users, customers will now have access to StopTheHacker's simple-to-use, cloud-based, web-portal dashboard to individually view and manage their website domains. In addition, displaying GlobalSign's new malware monitoring Trust Seal will reassure visitors the site is malware free and safe to browse. GlobalSign is taking online security to the next level in helping to raise awareness of malware threats hidden in websites.

StopTheHacker's website healthcare services do not just stop at web malware detection but include blacklist and reputation monitoring, uptime monitoring, vulnerability assessments, Facebook protection and automatic malware cleanup, all of which are available to GlobalSign customers, should they wish to upgrade to these more advanced cyber service levels and technologies.

"StopTheHacker is delighted to be able to work with a leading CA like GlobalSign to offer its suite of security technologies to keep a company's website safe in conjunction with GlobalSign's SSL and Digital Certificate security," said Peter Jensen, CEO, StopTheHacker. "With our industry experts and state-of-the-art techniques to protect websites and online reputations, we catch more malware than anyone else, also facilitating a rapid response for website owners, including a new auto-clean-up feature."

"We believe our relationship with our customers begins when we issue a Certificate, and we work hard to add continuous value through on-going security services to our SSL customers," said Steve Waite, CEO, GMO GlobalSign Inc. "With StopTheHacker's advanced intelligence technology to detect unknown malware across all pages on their websites, our customers can benefit from robust malware monitoring and optional cyber-security services to complement their highly trusted SSL Certificates, protecting their business and end customers from the ever-increasing rise and development of today's online threats."
