June 1st, 2009: UpMax™ Malware Detection Software
As part of their continuing effort to be the most helpful search engine available, Google
has added a new feature to their search results: now Google can tell you if you are about to
visit a site that may harm your computer. (For more information about how malware is embedded
onto a website and why Google is alerting users, read this
If your site is lucky enough to be uninfected, it's important you keep it that way! When a site
becomes infected with malware, not only will Google list it as harmful and possibly decrease its
ranking – thus driving away potential visitors – but users that go directly to the site will be
unaware of the risk they're taking. A malware attack can extract personal information like credit
card numbers and bank passwords. As you can imagine, this kind of security breach could
cost thousands of dollars and many hours to remedy.
Because of this new threat, Brattle has developed UpMax, our Malware Detection Software. With the
ability to run regularly in increments of 15 minutes to once a month, UpMax is constantly monitoring
your site for the presences of a harmful malware infection. If malware is ever detected an immediate
alert via text or email is sent to administrators. This instant alert mitigates your risk of losing
valuable search engine ranking and infecting your valued users. Let us help you get started with

We have expanded SignalSMS' application programming interface! This API expansion allows
basic web developers to integrate web development and designs with text message technology.
Now you can sign up for a text message alert system just like you do for the newsletter – right

SignalSMS™ now also has a Lookup Service – allowing the importing of cell numbers that have been
validated as numbers from an existing campaign or service (not repurchased or reassigned numbers).
All we need for the import routing is a .csv (comma separated values) file containing the cell
numbers of all your subscribers.
If this doesn't get you excited, maybe you're unfamiliar with SignalSMS' text message marketing and
alert capabilities! Read our brief press release.
