Qualys announced today that it is offering businesses a free license to use Qualys SECURE Seal protection from now until January 30th, 2012, along with Qualys BrowserCheck and SSL Server Audit. These free services combined enable businesses to protect their customers, employees and web presence against accidental and deliberate attacks during the busiest shopping period of the year – Cyber Monday through New Year’s. The protection is provided as a service, so there is no software to install or manage. This free offer is available at http://www.qualys.com/holiday
"Browsers and web sites are the primary targets for cyber attackers, so online shoppers and businesses need to take the proactive measures to protect themselves this holiday season," said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO for Qualys. "Ensuring your browser and all its plug-ins are at the latest security level is a must – and it takes only four seconds for Qualys to help you find out. Making sure your business web site is not compromised or vulnerable to attacks is equally as important, and the Qualys SECURE Seal provides an effective solution for maintaining a rigorous and proactive security program to help you safeguard your customers' data."
