The strategy sets out how government will strengthen its own defences [..] We will do this through working in partnership with industry - including companies such as the innovative SME Netcraft-to use automated defence techniques to reduce the impact of cyber-attacks...Previously a website serving web-inject malware would stay active for over a month-now it is less than two days.

It's no surprise that someone of the caliber of Bob Metcalfe, inventor of Ethernet and co-founder of 3com, should have called Netcraft 'cool'.
