New TippingPoint Intrusion Prevention Systems protect dedicated and virtual dedicated hosting. Announcing Support for Latest SSL Product

W-Global has added another layer of security to its Web hosting, deploying TippingPoint™ Intrusion Prevention Systems to block attacks.

W-GLOBAL has put TippingPoint systems in place to protect all dedicated and virtual dedicated hosting servers at no additional cost. An intrusion prevention system is an in-line device that scans traffic and, based on rules, determines whether data packets are legitimate or malicious.

In addition to this valuable security feature, each dedicated and virtual dedicated hosting plan includes free rapid setup, a free SSL certificate and 24/7 customer support, physical security and network monitoring.

TippingPoint systems deliver powerful network protection, functioning transparently at gigabit speeds to guard against cyber attacks. TippingPoint's Digital Vaccine® service updates filters regularly to maintain defense against the latest vulnerabilities, viruses and rogue applications.

W-Global announced today that new Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificates are available for sale and ready to install. An SSL Certificate is a digital credential that authenticates the identity of a Web site and encrypts information via Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology.

Created to establish online business identities, enable secure connections and promote online consumer confidence, EV SSLs set a higher standard for secure and successful online businesses. Like Turbo SSL® and High Assurance SSLs offered by W-Global, the new EV SSL offers industry-leading 256-bit encryption technology. A thorough, standardized verification process affords EV SSL owners an opportunity to tout completion of the most stringent vetting process for SSL encryption available today.

The EV SSL vetting process involves verifying the applying organization's identity and typically requires a letter from a representing attorney or accountant. While the new guidelines are strict, W-Global EV SSL certificates can be issued within two to four hours after all required documentation is received.

When users access sites encrypted with EV SSLs using Internet Explorer® 7, the first browser to distinguish EV certificates, the site's secure status is immediately evident. The browser's address bar reflects a green background and the name of the organization to which the certificate was issued, along with the familiar https:// prefix and padlock icon. Other browsers currently handle EV SSLs like normal certificates and are expected to distinguish them soon.
