We’re excited to announce our new service – HackAlert. HackAlert is the latest malware detection and early warning system available out there, powered by our partner GlobalSign-one of the longest established Certification Authorities and specialists in SSL security.
Malware is developed and improved every day to compromise PCs and spread viruses, hijack computers or steal personal information. One of the biggest fears of website owners is for their site to be infected with hidden malicious code and then used as a vehicle to distribute it to the website visitors. Unless remedied quickly, an infected website will shortly be flagged or blacklisted by search engines like Google for hosting malicious content. When visiting a flagged website, its visitors and potential customers will see worrying warnings about the site potentially harming their computers. In both cases, you can expect a steady drop in your website traffic, at the least.
HackAlert is a new, cloud-based service that identifies hidden zero-day malware and drive-by downloads in websites and online advertisements. Its greatest strength lies in its early-warning function- it sends out an immediate warning to the website owner, before search engines blacklist the website. This allows for an immediate remedy action to protect customers, their business reputation and revenues.
What’s even more, HackAlert is delivered as a web service – SiteGround customers only need to activate it for the domain name of their choice – no need to install appliances or download any software.
Existing customers will be able to add HackAlert to their domain names on the link below by visiting their SiteGround Customer Area:
New clients can also take advantage of the new malware detection and early alert system by adding it to their new Hosting Account order:
