Free browser add-on for safer searching

Panda Security : 03 August, 2009  (New Product)
Panda Security and WOT have partnered to deliver a safer web search facility add-on to protect browsers from malicious sites
Free browser add-on for safer searching
Panda Security, The Cloud Security Company, and Against Intuition, the developer of the leading website rating service Web of Trust (WOT), have announced a partnership to deliver a safer Web search experience through their new co-branded version of WOT. The WOT browser add-on warns Internet users about risky websites, providing protection against online scams, identity theft, spyware, spam, and unreliable shopping sites. WOT's protection is now extended with Panda's up-to-the-minute information on malware distributors and dangerous domains.

The free co-branded WOT security add-on is available for Firefox and Internet Explorer users worldwide and can be downloaded from Panda's website. Enhanced by Panda's latest information on new malware strains and phishing threats, WOT safety ratings serve the community of 5 million members worldwide. By joining forces, both companies hope to attract new users and make searching, shopping, and browsing on the Internet a safer experience.

'As we did with Collective Intelligence, we trust in the power of the community to improve the safety of the user, that's why we believe WOT is the best tool to help get safe surfing through the Internet,' said Panda Security's CEO Juan Santana.

'We are excited to have Panda, a respected security company, as a partner in our goal to make the Internet a safer place for everyone,' said Against Intuition's CEO Esa Suurio. 'WOT prides itself in providing frontline protection in the battle against online threats, and with this strong collaboration between Panda Security and Web of Trust we have strengthened both our products and given our users a definite advantage against cybercrime.'

Web of Trust is a unique community-based safe surfing tool that uses an intuitive traffic-light style rating system to help Internet users stay safe as they search, browse, and shop online. The WOT security add-on provides safety ratings to search results when using Google, Yahoo!, Wikipedia and other popular sites, helping people protect their computers and personal information. Web site ratings are continuously updated by millions of members of the WOT community and from numerous trusted sources, such as phishing site listings.
