I know, I thought the same thing you’re probably thinking. Why should I create an account on yet another social channel? And why should I use more of my precious time figuring it out? Aren’t Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and [insert the name of any other of the innumerable social sites here] enough?  Well, maybe not.

Google+ is another social channel, but has features that others don’t that can help you connect with customers, peers and industry leaders. For example, you can create a circle of contacts and communicate directly with those circles, unless you make your posts ‘public’. Contact segmentation at its finest. If you’re wondering about the ‘circle’ equivalent on other social channels, think ‘follower/following’.

Your sister (who you’ve put in your ‘Family’ circle) may not care about the latest virtualization certification you’ve earned, but those in...

Happy New Year, Partners! Here's a fresh opportunity to recommit yourself and/or your company to efforts on social channels. And if there’s one place your company should have a social presence, it’s on LinkedIn. This channel keeps it strictly business…no pictures of what your colleague had for breakfast or their kid’s first birthday party (not that I'm against eating or celebrating!).

Chances are you already have a personal LinkedIn account – along with 175 million other users on the site. This week, I’ll share three easy, no-cost steps to help increase your company’s visibility on the site.

1. Create or update the LinkedIn page for your company.
If you don’t yet have a LinkedIn page for your company, create one – it doesn’t take that long and provides free online real estate for your company where others who are...

Leverage Vulnerability Assessments within Symantec Website Security SSL Certificates

Our online world is rife with shadowy creatures; it’s riddled with crime organizations, activist groups, government entities, and lone hackers. Why they breach our data can boil down to a few things; greed, ideological dissent, and their desire to publicly embarrass their targets. In 2011, high-profile attacks on various Certificate Authorities threatened the systems that sustain trust in the internet itself.  These attacks highlighted the need for Symantec to continue to harden their defenses and develop even stronger security procedures and policies.

The Website Security Internet Threat Report, published in May 2012, reported that in 2011 the Symantec website security malware scanning service...

The Best Blacklist Protection—Symantec Website Security

Search engines, the heart of the internet, reserve the right to blacklist websites. Blacklisting can mean that a company does not show in search results or that a warning is given if a user clicks on a blacklisted website. Websites become blacklisted for a variety of reasons. The two most frequent reasons are:
  • Failing to meet search engine usage guidelines (i.e. overly aggressive search engine optimizations [SEO] that violate a search engine's terms of service)
  • Websites being shown as a source of malware

The malware could be intentional (i.e. phishing, spoofed websites) or unintentional (i.e. website has been hacked or otherwise infected by a third party). A surefire way to get blacklisted is to harbor a website being infected with malware.
