Cloud Provider and Web Host GoDaddy India and Security and Antivirus Software Provider McAfee Form Partnership
December 9, 2017
Cloud provider and web host GoDaddy India and security and antivirus software provider McAfee LLC (McAfee) have formed a partnership. GoDaddy, which was established in 1997, has global headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona, United States. The company provides a range of services for SMEs and larger organizations that enable businesses to establish a viable web presence without the need of developers or technical support. It has a global presence with offices in many parts of the world including India, where it has headquarters in Mumbai. Together GoDaddy and McAfee will facilitate ‘SSL Certificates’ that allow small businesses to show the "SECURE" trust mark on their webpages.
McAfee, which has headquarters in Santa Clara, California, United States, was in the news recently for acquiring cloud security company Skyhigh Networks. Founded by John McAfee, the company was established in 1987. Its products and services protect against a broad range of cyber threats. The new service it is offering in collaboration with GoDaddy India represents a component of the company’s ‘Online Security Awareness Program’.
“Use of the internet and connected devices is now an integral part for businesses, and has made small businesses a more frequent target for cyber intrusion,” explained GoDaddy India’s Vice-President and Managing Director, Nikhil Arora. “As part of our Online Security Awareness Program, we are offering these new security online solutions to help further protect your online presence. The McAfee integration with our SSL Certificates and security protection powered by Sucuri gives our customers access to robust and reliable resources of professional online security protection for small business websites." GoDaddy announced a 40% discount on security solutions in December.
