Several of the SSL certificates we offer includes free daily scanning of your website for malware. Malware includes virus, trojans, worms, spyware, hidden ads and are typically added by hackers if there is a security breach on your website. This kind of malware can cause several problems for a website, such as search engines blocking the site, lost reputation and spreading the malware to visitors of the website Sadly malware has become quite common at the same time it has become more sophisticated. Daily scanning of your website can save you for a lot of trouble and work.
Symantec offers daily scanning of your website for free with all their SSL certificates, while Comodo offers this for free for 1 year for some of their certificates. When it comes to Comodo it is important to be aware of ordering the service limits the possibility to use the service for free for all future certificates for the domain as well as all subdomains of the domain. Meaning when you offer this for mysubdomain.domain.com you will not be able to order this for domain.com on a later point in time, even though its on a different certificate.
We are planning on making it possible to order free scanning of your website via the client portal.
