Wegilant launches BlackHound – Cloud based security for your website

Today, Internet has grown a thousand folds. Any information is just a click away. In just a matter of minutes, you connect to your friends, chat, check your emails, browse and maybe chat some more. That being said, do we ever wonder, how many eyes are prying upon us while we carry out these day to day activities on the internet. You never know if you are chatting with the right person, or downloading the right file for that matter.

It becomes even more serious when it comes to online businesses. These companies have to be very careful about keeping their services up and running 24X7. Imagine if you cannot access gmail for a few hours, or say Facebook for a couple of minutes! Just like you have physical security for your assets, there are online solutions to protect these website businesses as well. One such solution is BlackHound.
