Cloud and Web-hosting deployer GoDaddy has launched ‘Website Security’ in partnership with security company McAfee to protect small and independent businesses in India from cyber threats. This alliance is also powered by security platform Sucuri for malware removal and website protection.
The alliance works towards providing new solution detection through continuous monitoring, ensuring fast response time and scanning daily malware in order to protect small and medium businesses. Explaining the decision to launch ‘Website Security’, Nikhil Arora, Vice-President and Managing Director, GoDaddy India, in a statement said:
As part of our online security awareness programme, we are offering these new security online solutions to help further protect your online presence. The McAfee integration with our SSL Certificates and security protection powered by Sucuri gives our customers access to robust and reliable resources for professional online security protection for small business websites.
According to GoDaddy, the SSL Certificates offered by McAfee will allow small businesses to display a secure mark and function smoothly. They further added that the ‘SECURE’ trust-mark on their websites will allow them to display credibility among their customers.
According to ‘Internet Threat Security Report’ submitted by Symantec in 2016, more than 40% of cyber attacks target small businesses. This alliance surely looks timely and we hope that it will affect the small-medium enterprise community in a positive manner.
