TRUSTe acquires Haute Secure
Privacy trustmark provider TRUSTe has acquired Haute Secure. Haute Secure develops Web site scanning and anti-malware technology. The purchase allows TRUSTe to expand its services; among other additions, the company will begin offering reputation and anti-malware scanning services for browsers, Web sites, and online communities.
“…Ultimately, this is about giving people a sense of confidence—that they can trust the Web site, and by extension, the company behind it,” said TRUSTe CEO Fran Maier.
