Today, web hosting and cloud service provider DreamHost launched Automated Malware Remover, a security scanning service which they have added to their suite of managed hosting options.
The company says that this program scans selected customer domains on a weekly basis to identify and neutralize malicious code with users receiving emailed reports of potential problems. The malware and permissions-based issues will be repaired automatically.
DreamHost’s security team says that Malware Remover is a mature version of an tool used internally at DreamHost. They added that the product brings with it over a decade of experience “in the field” and exposure to all manner of badware that one might expect to find across a customer base of over 400,000 users.
Marcus Hildum, Director of Security, DreamHost said :
We’re happy to finally take the wraps off of our Malware Remover.
It’s the same basic tool we’ve been using and improving regularly for the better part of the last decade, and we’re excited to get this polished version into the hands of our customers.
We’ve put a lot of work into building it up and improving the overall user experience because our users deserve to have a tool this powerful at their disposal.
DreamHost’s Malware Remover is available as an add-on option to any and all domains hosted on its managed hosting platform.
