Searching For a Cure to Web Malware
by Eldar Tuvey - ScanSafe CEO - Tuesday, 13 November 2007.
The important function that such services provide is the ability to notify web users of potential risks in real time. This distinction of real time is critical, as a site that was safe the last time it was crawled, may not be safe the next time it is accessed. By giving users the right information, in real time, they are able to take control of their online behaviour. This reduces the potential for accidental policy violations and makes it easier for administrators to maintain their security policy. Securing web searches in real time protects the user and the corporation, allowing the user to continue using productivity-enhancing search engines without the increased risk of exposure to malware and policy violations.
