Sentinel is running on our site 24/7, literally. It’s constantly searching for any way that someone might try to attack our site and steal our customers’ info.

Cybercrime rates are on a drastic incline. With every passing year, the frequency and sophistication of online attacks increases making consumers more vulnerable; putting their private information at higher risk.

Fully aware of what was at stake, in 2015 Health for California Insurance Center (HFCIC), one of the leading agencies for Covered California health insurance sales in the state, reached out to WhiteHat Security to assist them in identifying and repairing any vulnerabilities in their internet system and processes.

“The security of our customer’s personal information has always been among our highest priorities,” says Stephen Saucier, HFCIC’s Website and Systems Administrator. “We’ve always taken every precaution. We were early adopters of multi factor authentication. We make sure to stay up-to-date on all best practices for internet security against web application attacks. We’ve even gone so far as to build our own localized secure messaging portal.”

Confident that they had built and put in place a secure system that their customers could feel comfortable using, HFCIC still found WhiteHat Security and the products they offer to be an almost invaluable asset. “For us, using Sentinel was a no brainer,” said Saucier.

WhiteHat’s Sentinel is a website vulnerability management solution. It enables users like HFCIC to address all website vulnerability issues. “WhiteHat Sentinel combines advanced proprietary scanning technology with expert analysis, allowing customers to identify, prioritize, manage and remediate website vulnerabilities as they occur. ”

HFCIC allows Sentinel to run ongoing scans of their system. “Sentinel is running on our site 24/7, literally. It’s constantly searching for any way that someone might try to attack our site and steal our customers’ info.”

After one year of using WhiteHat’s products, Saucier says that, “Early on, Sentinel helped us to identify a few minor vulnerabilities. We repaired them right away and have been keeping an eye on Sentinel ever since.”
