6Scan’s suite provides comprehensive protection previously available only to enterprises with large budgets and staff.
Tel Aviv, Israel (PRWEB) February 22, 2012
Today 6Scan is releasing the first in a series of products designed to give small and medium website owners an upper hand with hackers. 6Scan Protection Suite provides enterprise-level website security to these businesses at a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) that fits with their budgets. The 6Scan Protection Suite is initially being delivered as a plugin for Wordpress, but will soon be available for most industry leading platforms. 6Scan’s Protection Suite provides a total solution, from identification of threats to implementation of solutions, to keep websites free from hackers.
There has been an increased urgency by SMB website owners to find a cost effective solution to this problem due to an increase in website hacks. According to Ponemon and Symantec, while 50% of businesses believed they were immune to cyber-attack, in reality over 90% of businesses fell victim to a cyber-security breach at least once in the past 12 months.
6Scan Protection Suite provides these businesses with this protection. 6Scan’s Patrol™ scanner runs in the cloud and acts like a white-hat hacker, constantly scouring every page, form and script on your website for security vulnerabilities that a hacker could exploit.
“Most website ‘protection’ packages stop there,” explained Yaron Tal, co-founder and CTO of 6Scan, “leaving the website owner with the difficult task of fixing those vulnerabilities manually. Most times, website owners have to choose between bringing in expensive security consultants, and remaining vulnerable. It’s a tough decision, and it’s why so many sites are left unprotected.”
6Scan’s suite doesn’t stop there. Its patent-pending 6Scan Bodyguard™ takes the vulnerabilities found by Patrol™ and automatically fixes them, proactively protecting the site against hackers.
“6Scan’s suite provides comprehensive protection previously available only to enterprises with large budgets and staff,” said Nitzan Miron, co-founder and CEO of 6Scan. “We started 6Scan because we believe high-quality security should be available within the budget of every site, down to the smallest.” 6Scan’s Patrol™ scanner is offered for free of charge to allow any website owner to assess their security. If Patrol™ finds vulnerabilities that need to be fixed, Bodyguard™ automatically fixes them for only $10/month.
6Scan’s alpha suite already protects over 2,500 websites. 6Scan’s Patrol™ found a staggering 70% of these sites to have vulnerabilities, with 40% having critical issues. All vulnerabilities were successfully fixed by the 6Scan Bodyguard™, preventing any hacker activity on all the sites protected.
6Scan is the world's first website protection suite to offer automatic detection and fixing of security vulnerabilities. 6Scan's technology combines both active and passive protection, providing levels of security previously unavailable to all but the most high-end (and high-budget) sites. The product is easy-to-use and designed for website owners with no technical or security knowledge, and its pricing is affordable even for small websites.
