CyberSecurity Expert Aims To Secure All Legitimate Web Traffic by 2018
Symantec Corp.,, the global leader in cybersecurity, today announced the worldwide availability of Encryption Everywhere, a website security package available through web hosting providers. Encryption Everywhere lets web hosting providers integrate encryption into every website from the moment it is created. With the new web security service, hosting providers can offer a variety of flexible options, including basic website encryption included as part of any hosted service, and a number of premium security packages with increasingly stronger levels of website validation, protection, and trust seals. Symantec wants to see 100% of legitimate websites secured by 2018, and Encryption Everywhere was developed to support that goal.
“There are almost a billion websites today, yet only about 3% of those sites are encrypted, which means cybercriminals have been able to make a good living off of the web’s lack of security,” said Roxane Divol, senior vice president and general manager, Website Security, Symantec. “Symantec is about to change the game for cybersecurity with Encryption Everywhere. It’s time to secure every legitimate website and win back security on the internet for every business and consumer. That’s why Symantec is making it easy to secure any website from the very moment it is registered or renewed, starting with free, basic encryption all the way through to complete website security solutions.”
According to the Norton Cybersecurity Insights Report, 47% of global respondents reported they have been a victim of a cyberattack. Symantec’s Internet Security Threat Report cited five out of six large companies had been targeted for attack in 2014, a 40% increase over the previous year.
