Haute Secure is a security company that, in addition to an algorithm, relies on a community of users to prevent malware from being uploaded to your computer without your knowledge. The program comes in the form of a browser plugin and can label individual web pages as “infected” as opposed to the full website. It is particularly effective at blocking specific content on websites which may only be minutely affected. For example, a site like Facebook or Myspace would not be banned due to malware on one profile. Only said profile would be banned.
|Launch Date||July 10, 2007|
The Haute Secure browser plugin alerts users to infected pages and proceeds to prevent malware from infiltrating your computer. Once the plugin recognizes malware it alerts Haute Secure’s servers which sends along the alert to all users.
