(PRWEB) Coral Gables, Florida Â July 21, 2005Â The SANS Institute awarded Xentinel Digital Security Â HACKER FREEÂ Certification, recognition on their website as a security tool that tests against the FBI/SANS Top 20 vulnerabilities Â visit http://www.sans.org/top20/toolsv5.pdf
The FBI/SANS Top 20 list covers over 230 well-known, often exploited vulnerabilities. It was initially developed and released in 2000 by the SANS institute and the National Infrastructure Protection Center (NIPC). After performing security traces and intrusion forensic research, SANS noted that the vast majority of successful hacker intrusions could have been prevented by securitizing the flaws in this list. Today, SANS updates the Top 20 list with newly discovered vulnerabilities, as well as the vendor tools that test for them. For more information visit http://www.sans.org/top20/
ÂWe are committed to working with SANS, government agencies, and the information security community in helping companies protect consumer confidential information against internet security threats and hackers,Â said Esteban Reyes, CEO of Xentinel Digital Security.

About HACKER FREEÂ Certification
HACKER FREEÂ Certification is a daily remote vulnerability scanning solution which requires no installation, management, or software updates. It tests websites for over 7,000 vulnerabilities including the SANS/FBI Top20 and Payment Card Industry Data Security standards. To maximize its effort, HACKER FREEÂ Certification also acts as an intrusion detection system (IDS) to detect and record hacker break in attempts and instantly notify the website is under attack. Xentinel vulnerability scans are non-invasive and 100% safe for servers.
The US Computer Emergency Readiness Team (CERT) agreed that the only way to prevent 99.9% of hacker intrusions is by remotely scanning websites for known vulnerabilities, such as those performed on websites who earn our HACKER FREEÂ Certification.
