“There are an ever increasing number of new malware threats and attacks on the Internet, so anytime we can further protect our customers with an additional layer of protection we will do so,” said Vesa Perälä, CEO, at Web of Trust. “GFI provides users superior protection from the latest threats and that is why we are very proud to make VIPRE the Web of Trust’s recommended antivirus solution.”

The WOT add-on shows reputation ratings on search results from leading search engines and other popular sites. With WOT, users can see, at-a-glance, which sites are trusted and which sites to avoid. Website ratings are updated in real time by millions of members of the WOT community. Users can download WOT for safe surfing and contribute ratings and reviews. WOT works with Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari.

“Consumers, just like large enterprises, require a layered approach to Web security,” said Alex Eckelberry, vice president and general manager, GFI’s Security Business Unit. “The combination of Web of Trust’s community driven rating system and GFI’s VIPRE anti-malware technology provides customers with a two-tiered approach to security that can help to keep Internet browsing safe.”
