Security firm Qualys has introduced two new services today -- one free, another paid, and both offer websites protection from malware and other vulnerabilities. QualysGuard Malware Detection is a free cloud-based service that scans sites to detect traces of malware and provides automated alerts along with in-depth reports of infections.
Qualys' paid service is called Go Secure, and for $995 a year, it provides additional protection. For instance, it checks to see if your web certificate is up to date, along with other vulnerability scans. Additionally, if a site subscribes and is deemed safe, it is given a security seal to comfort visitors. Once infected, though, the seal is yanked from your site and isn't returned until Go Secure determines everything is OK.
