At Les Assises de la Securite in Monaco, Qualys announced a partnership with Keynectis®, the European leader of solutions to secure digital identities and information exchange, to offer a comprehensive 'one stop shop' solution to help SSL customers secure their web sites from vulnerabilities and drive-by malware.
Keynectis is a Certificate Authority with its root Certificate included in Browsers, and a member of the Certificate Authority and Browser Forum. The new solution will comprise Keynectis' wide range of SSL certificates and dedicated services, together with Qualys SECURE Seal technology to help protect web sites from malware and vulnerabilities.
"Recent high profile hacking incidents have rocked users' confidence in the websites of even the most highly regarded organizations," said Eric Domage, program manager – security products & services for IDC EMEA Software Group. "This initiative and others like it will help reestablish the reputation of websites and organisations that take it up, and will provide a clear and visible differentiation between websites that have been managed with customer security in mind, and those that haven’t. There is a long way to go, but such partnerships are significant steps ahead in a difficult context."
