Canadian Web Hosting Deploys Secure IT – 10/30/2012, the leading IT services and web hosting solutions, VPS, VM and cloud hosting services, announced today the deployment of Secure IT Botnet and Malware Prevention across its entire network. Secure IT is a combination of industry-leading technologies and partnerships that have been combined to create an advanced Defense Network layer that protects and monitors botnets and a website’s IP reputation to protect users and networks from possible malware attacks. Canadian Web Hosting customers utilizing this service will immediately benefit by eliminating attempts at data theft, reducing detrimental network activity, decrease spam to their inbox, and improve overall server and network performance. More importantly, Secure IT ensures that business infrastructure and IPs are protected and helps business customers remain competitive by improving productivity, and avoiding possible reputational damage.

The Botnet Defense and anti-malware technologies work by enabling Canadian Web Hosting’s network-based firewalls to block both inbound and outbound traffic by tracking, updating, reporting, and delivering malicious activities to the firewall gateway to enforce pre-determined security policies. The technology automatically stops any incoming or outgoing traffic including those coming from malware sites, and makes the host server invisible to the remote user.

“Over the next five years, the number of Web sites on the Internet will grow to almost five to seven times today’s number, and more and more of those sites will become targets by inappropriate or outright malicious attacks,” said Kevin Liang, Canadian Web Hosting CTO. “With these new technologies, we are providing a streamlined security platform that allows us to create custom white and black lists, lists for inbound and outbound blocking, as well as focusing on geographical regions or malware types. In doing so, we are able to remove a significant amount of malware for our customers. By giving our customers Secure IT, their content, systems, and reputation values will be protected from malicious attacks.”
