Herndon, VA (PRWEB) May 6, 2008
Continuing their commitment to offer exceptional security services, Network Solutions® launched WatchDog, a Web site security service designed to monitor vulnerabilities and performance.
"WatchDog provides our customers with the most complete package of Web security services that are not only simple and user friendly, but also affordable," says Charlie Buckley, director of Security Product Development for Network Solutions. "With this new Web site security tool business owners are alerted to major issues that could negatively impact their business."
WatchDog™ is a comprehensive security package for Web site monitoring, which features three components, including Web Site Vulnerability Scanning, Web Site Performance Monitoring, and a Certification Seal. Working together, these three elements monitor vulnerabilities, availability and performance, and build customer trust and confidence.
Web Site Vulnerability Scanning detects existing site security holes that can be entry points for hackers. It can also detect whether hackers have already compromised a Web site. When a vulnerability is detected this feature sends alerts via e-mail or text message and stores a history of these reports in the customer's Account Manager.
Web Site Performance Monitoring lets customers know when their Web sites are unavailable or downloading slowly by tracking Web site uptime and Web page load times. This Web site monitoring feature downloads Web sites approximately every five minutes from numerous locations around the world to track overall performance, including the performance of hosting providers. If a Web site is down or not performing optimally, customers are sent alerts via e-mail or text message. Customers also receive weekly reports detailing their site's performance.
WatchDog also offers a highly visible certification seal that dynamically displays the date of the last successful vulnerability scan. This seal offers peace of mind and trust, assuring visitors that the site they are visiting has been scanned for vulnerabilities.
Web site monitoring is extremely important and is ideal for both ecommerce and informational Web sites. For more information about WatchDog and other Web site solutions, please visit NetworkSolutions.com.
