BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 -- GlobalSign, one of the leading providers of SSL Certificates worldwide, today announced availability of its SSL Configuration Checker. This free online service allows website administrators to confirm that they have correctly configured SSL across their websites and receive actionable guidance on how to remediate any faulty or exploitable SSL configurations. Correctly configured SSL improves website performance and strengthens security, allowing organizations to preserve the end-user experience and provide better defense against SSL BEAST, CRIME, and other common and damaging attacks that exploit faulty SSL configurations.
Any organization can use the service by visiting sslcheck.globalsign.com. Once there, users simply enter the URL of the website they want to check. After a brief scan, the user receives a letter grade with a simplified explanation of any issues found in the website's SSL configuration and actionable remediation steps. The SSL Configuration Checker integrates the assessment technology of Qualys SSL Labs, which is focused on auditing the SSL ecosystem, raising awareness, and providing tools and documentation to web site owners so they can improve their SSL implementations. The tool is immediately available in Dutch, English, French, German, Japanese, Russian and Spanish to service the Internet at large.
"Research from Qualys SSL Labs shows that more than 70 percent of websites using SSL are configured incorrectly which has resulted in poor performance and weakened security. Unfortunately, until now there has been a lack of user-friendly resources to help administrators apply SSL securely," said Ryan Hurst, GlobalSign CTO. "With the availability of SSL Configuration Checker, GlobalSign is adding context to SSL issues by helping companies understand how best to configure SSL to reduce their risk and optimize performance. Our goal is to help all organizations reduce SSL-related risks."
"Configuring SSL properly is an important step in realizing the benefits of SSL. However, it's often hard for administrators to find comprehensive guidance on how to accomplish this goal," said Ivan Ristic, director of engineering at Qualys. "Our work with GlobalSign is addressing this need and making the Internet a safer place for everyone."
"Security doesn't end at the close of a technology sale. Providers need to deliver ongoing support for products and services that allow their customers to maximize the value of their solutions and increase their effectiveness as the threat landscape changes," said Richard Stiennon, noted security author, speaker and founder of IT-Harvest. "As a Certificate Authority, GlobalSign is in the best position to understand website administrators' needs in configuring SSL and remediation of security issues."
About Qualys SSL Labs
Qualys SSL Labs is technology developed by Qualys as free service to help organizations audit their SSL implementation on the Internet. SSL Labs is a non-commercial research effort, and Qualys welcomes participation from any individual or organization interested in SSL. For more information, please visit https://www.ssllabs.com.

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.
