Cloudflare to expand to 25+ Cities in Brazil

Today cloudflare announced an expansion they have been working on behind the scenes for the last two years: a 25+ city partnership with one of the largest ISPs in Brazil. This is one of the largest simultaneous single-country expansions they have done so far.

Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.

They have already launched in Porto Alegre, Belo Horizonte, Brasília, Campinas, Curitiba, and Fortaleza, with additional presences coming soon to Manaus, São Paulo, Blumenau, Joinville, Florianópolis, Itajai, Belém, Goiânia, Salvador, São José do Rio PretoAmericana, and Sorocaba.

From there, they are planning on adding presences in the following cities: Guarulhos, Mogi das Cruzes, São José dos Campos, Vitória, Londrina, Maringá, Campina Grande, Caxias do Sul, Cuiabá, Lajeado, Natal, Recife, Osasco, Santo André, and Rio. The result will be a net expansion of Cloudflare in Brazil by 12 to 16 times.

SSL Sectigo: Two-Year Certificate Phase Out

INDUSTRY MANDATED CHANGE
COUNTDOWN TO ONE-YEAR CERTIFICATES: 34 DAYS 

Starting Wednesday, August 19, 2020, Sectigo will no longer be able to offer two-year public TLS certificates due to an industry-wide requirement set by Apple and Google, stating that any two-year TLS certificate issued after August 30, 2020 will be distrusted in their browsers.

Any two-year TLS certificate issued before 12:00am UTC on August 19, 2020 will be valid for two-years (up to 825 days). Beginning August 19, 2020, Sectigo will only be issuing one-year (up to 398 days) TLS certificates.

This only applies to public TLS certificates. Private-root and other types of certificates (e.g. Code Signing Certificates, S/MIME certificates, etc.) will be unaffected and will have the same maximum validity that they have today.

In preparation for this upcoming industry-wide change, we have prepared a few resources for our customers and partners.

Malware Scanner

We utilize a suite of security products called Imunify360 on our Shared / Reseller / Optimized and Elastic site products. And offer this tool for all our managed hosting clients as well. One of the parts of this imunify360 security software package is the Malware Scanner.

It is important you keep track of your site at all times, if you do not patch your site in time it may get infected which can break your site, or worse, steal data from your vistors or yourself or even attack other innocent users on the internet from your account.

If you did not do so already, please login to your account and find under the topic ‘Security’ the Imunify360 logo and click it.

Its important to regularly check if you have malware on your account and take action, please note that while Imunify360 does a great job in updating their detection as a malware scanner but it is not possible to catch 100%, as well as sometimes false positives may be flagged. In those cases please check the files with the once you got from the original developer and see if they are the same.

Clients with Managed Servers or Unmanaged servers which are supported by Imunify360 can also buy their malware scanner licenses directly through us.
