Symantec looks to secure every website with basic encryption

|June 3, 2016 0

BANGALORE, INDIA: Symantec  announced the 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.

Symantec’s Internet Security Threat Report cited 78% of websites have vulnerabilities, and over one million web attacks were blocked daily in 2015, up 117% from 2014.

“There are almost a billion websites today, yet only about 3% of those sites are encrypted, which means cyber criminals 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.

Websites that want to remain viable will need to at least use basic encryption by 2018. Google and other browsers have announced they will push unencrypted websites down in search ranking results.

Encryption Everywhere encrypts 100% of customer data shared on a business’s website, giving businesses of any size precious brand trust and providing consumers with the confidence that the information they share is protected and will reach the intended recipient.

For more customized options, the user can simply click on the preferred Symantec security products offered by their web hosting provider.

With the 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.
