GARTNER GROUP RECENTLY ESTIMATED THAT 80% OF ALL SECURITY BREACHES ARE DUE TO WEB VULNERABILITIES WITHIN THE APPLICATION LAYER OF A WEBSITE.
We hear incident after incident about how hackers infiltrate confidential information on “secure” websites. These attackers access secure information using vulnerabilities within web applications. In one incident, hackers stole user names, passwords, and customer credit card information by setting up a fraudulent auction site mimicking eBay.
Even when well configured, Firewalls and Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) cannot mitigate all application layer attacks.
Web application attacks, launched on port 80/443, go straight through the firewall, past operating system and network level security, right in to the heart of your application and corporate data. Tailor-made web applications are often insufficiently tested and have undiscovered web vulnerabilities. This marks them as easy prey for hackers.
Secure Your Data and Prevent Hackers:
To protect your data from hackers, web vulnerabilities must be detected and neutralized. It is imperative to look at security, not just from an operations perspective, but as an integral part of the entire development cycle. Security must be built into the web application development process.
As you take action to protect web applications within applications, you must balance the need for security with availability, performance and cost-effectiveness. Protecting web applications requires both zero-day protection and rapid response, with minimal impact to operations, without impacting performance or changing system architectures.
Web applications are not static systems. Any Change to your Web applications creates web vulnerabilities; putting your system at risk. If security is viewed as a single event, a web vulnerability that enters the system after the audit will go undetected by security scanners.
Next Generation Web Application Security Scanner:
GamaScan's complex vulnerability assessment scanner executes continuous dynamic tests combined with simulated web-application attacks during the scanning process.
GamaScan requires no installation, no set-up, no hardware purchases, no software development, and no IT security expertise. Customers do not need any special training to use it. Support services are provided for every customer by certified GamaSec security professionals. Support services include: complete online and on demand management consultations, as well as phone and email support.
Web vulnerabilities are always under attack. Prevent hackers by arming yourself with security scanners strong enough to counter them.
