Two of the Internet industry’s giants are engaging in online security. Google and Yahoo are creating new malware products for both businesses and consumers.
Google Web Security for Enterprise is a malware protection and URL filtering product with policy enforcement and reporting. Google offers additional features that extend to protecting users that works remotely on laptops on guest networks.
Matthew Connor said” Protecting employees from Internet threats is tough enough when they’re at work, much less when they’re on the road.”
Yahoo, on the other hand has joined forces with McAfee Inc. to have a more secure web search. The new SearchScan feature by Yahoo Search alerts users to sites with security concerns that could damage a user’s PC.
With all this protection going on, Internet experience could be a much safer place for business and consumer alike.
Website Web Tools and Tips also offer a great section on Internet Security.
Until next time 😉

While I am usually skeptical of the bigs boys getting into PC security, I think this strategy makes a great deal of sense. Policy based Internet access will stop harm from getting into folk’s PCs in the first place. However, with the fast prevalence of security threats, it will be remained to be seen if the big boys such as Google can respond fast enough. They need to make good alliances if they want to be a successful player in the anti-spyware, malware/ PC security industry
