Google and cybersecurity firm Asset have confirmed that they will continue their partnership to provide better security for Chrome users for Windows. Both companies continue to keep people safe online by cleaning up Chrome, a security tool that notifies users of potential threats.
Chrome Cleanup is part of Chrome’s Safe Browsing feature – a Google tool that notifies users when they attempt to access malicious sites or download suspicious files.
Safe Browsing notifies webmasters when hijacked sites and helps them diagnose and resolve issues. ESET’s security expertise makes secure browsing more secure.
Google uses ESET’s technology to notify malicious software users trying to access it via stealth. Chrome Cleanup can be used to remove unwanted software as soon as users receive a notification when the program removal is complete.
ESET-enabled Chrome runs during the cleanup, which never interrupts a user’s online activity. When cyber-attacks are more sophisticated and sometimes injected with malware using legitimate software solutions, the integration of ESET’s technology strengthens online security.
The Chrome Cleanup partnership currently underway is not just a collaboration between Google and ESET. The two companies are working with Iset, an application defense alliance partner, to protect the Google Play Store. Similarly, the two companies are collaborating on the Google Cloud Security Analytics platform.
