VirusTotal, an online scanning service of malware and URL, has announced this Friday that it has now become a partner with Google Inc., the search giant, as per a recent report.

Where the company is contented to be able to work with Google and improve. It has been found that Google also is delighted and feels great to have the opportunity to provide VirusTotal the infrastructure it wants.
