Vulnerability Assessment

Extend Protection Beyond HTTPS

Hackers are always looking for the easiest way to infiltrate the largest number of websites in order to gather sensitive data or implant malicious code. Even the smallest of your customers’ websites are at risk of attack. Using automated scripts and tools, hackers search the web for exploitable sites and use them to infect visitors, steal information, or launch more attacks. Every business needs to ensure that their web site infrastructure is safe and avoid being an easy target. Neglecting to do so puts your customers’ web site, their clients and business at risk by leaving the door open to hackers. However, even with dedicated IT resources, making sense of the seemingly endless barrage of possible threats may be an overwhelming task. Your small, mid market and enterprise customers need an easy way to protect their web sites and to quickly identify and prioritize the critical vulnerabilities
