Our new website vulnerability scanning solution executes potentially hundreds of thousands of attempts to submit forms and search queries, modify page variables and URLS, and exploit other potential weaknesses in our clients’ sites.
Peru, IL (PRWEB) November 18, 2015
LKCS recently introduced a new website vulnerability scanning system that provides protection against web application attacks.
Hackers have moved beyond testing web servers, firewalls, and network infrastructure to attacking web programming and coding. Companies need additional protection to identify these new potential threats.
“Our new website vulnerability scanning solution executes potentially hundreds of thousands of attempts to submit forms and search queries, modify page variables and URLS, and exploit other potential weaknesses in our clients’ sites. This scanning engine interacts with websites just like a potential hacker would,” says Sid Haas, LKCS Vice President of Business Development.
LKCS’ new system tests an entire website, including authenticated areas that require a user login to ensure full testing coverage. Numerous vulnerabilities are often overlooked by other systems with many cyber criminals focusing on weaknesses in web applications, such as forms or login pages. This dynamic system protects those overlooked web applications, scanning them as though these tests were running from a user’s browser.
LKCS’ website vulnerability scanning system offers more than just dynamic testing. It also boasts complete accuracy when it comes to detecting critical vulnerabilities in areas such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting. The new system has the lowest false positive rate in the industry, saving clients valuable time and resources.
For sites running WordPress, LKCS’ scanning engine tests not only the WordPress content management system, but also scans over 1,200 popular WordPress plugins for critical security risks.
After each test, LKCS will provide clients with detailed reports that assist in managing escalation and remediation of vulnerabilities. These reports are also beneficial in that they can be used in conjunction with FFIEC Cybersecurity Assessments to prove that a financial institution is able to detect threats and vulnerabilities, demonstrating that the website is as secure as possible and is meeting stipulated guidelines.
