Symantec AdVantage(Anti-Malvertising): Armorize and Symantec partnered and launched


Armorize Technologies(malware blog) and Symantec joined together to fight against Malvertisement. They launched a AdVantage(Anti-Malvertising) Technology, cloud based scanner to detect the malvertising(malware advertisement) in online.

“Malvertising poses a serious risk to online publishers and their customers, reputation and revenue. Highly publicized malvertising infections can damage the reputation of even the most trusted online sites. Symantec AdVantage will provide ad publishers the tools they need to protect their businesses by fighting back against these threats.”
– Fran Rosch, Vice President, Identity and Authentication Services, Symantec Corp.

 Symantec Advantage will scan, detect and report malvertising on websites by automatically alerting publishers and identifying the location of malicious advertisements so customers can remove malicious ads that may damage their business’ reputation. A real-time performance dashboard complements these automatic reports by providing essential insights. For example, Symantec AdVantage will enable customers to compare safe ads to malicious advertisements and discover how and when malvertising occurred by visually tracing and identifying the path and source of infected advertisements .

Symantec AdVantage is scheduled to be made available to publishers and ad networks through a free early access program beginning in November 2011.

The service will be available here:
