The largest Estonian hosting provider Zone.ee and Cumulo Information System Security GmBH (Cumulo) have jointly brought Nimbusec – a website security monitoring service – to the Estonian market.
Nimbusec offers website owners information regarding security problems and attacks, helping users avoid incidents and damages. Nimbusec identifies popular malware, backdoors and configuration errors – including out of date content management systems.
“During the last few months, we have had hundreds of attacks against Estonian websites come to light. Largely thanks to accompanying defacements. Unfortunately this is only the tip of the iceberg. Most of these incidents go unnoticed for weeks or months. Unfortunately this time period is used by criminals to attack internet users and to steal website owners data,” commented Ardi Jürgens one of the board members of Zone.ee. “Nimbusec helps minimise the period during which the homepage owner and users are vulnerable due to lack of information,” he added.
Cumulo’s partner relations development manager Alexander Mitter described Nimbusec’s mission: “Cyber attacks are not only aimed at high profile targets anymore, it is a phenomenon that targets the whole society. The mission of Nimbusec is to stay a step ahead of the criminals, watch over our clients websites and alert them when problems arise. This way we help our customers avoid financial and reputation loss. Partnership with Zone.ee, one of the leaders in its field in Baltics, allows us to bring our services to Estonian entrepeneurs.”
Nimbusec security monitoring is available for all websites hosted at Zone.ee. The prices for service plans start at 1.99€ per website.
Zone Media LLC, the largest hosting provider and domain registrar in Estonia was founded in 1999. Co-operation with Cumulo Information System Security GmBH is part of the company’s initiative to bring additional services from international vendors to Zone.ee customers in Estonia.
Cumulo Information System Security GmBH is an Austrian-based cloud service headquartered in Linz that monitors webspaces and domains for malware, defacement and blacklisting.
