Sitesecuritymonitor.com uses Acunetix WVS to automate web vulnerability detection


“We rely on Acunetix to give us a good foundation in order to provide market leading security and protection services to our clients.”
Jason Remillard, Managing Director at Sitesecuritymonitor.com.

With over 15 years of internet-security and enablement technology experience, sitesecuritymonitor.com is deeply rooted in the web security business.  Every internet threat and vulnerability you have ever heard of, most probably sitesecuritymonitor.com has already encountered it over and over again somewhere else.  Sitesecuritymonitor.com was developed by the same people who helped guide and create internet-security solutions for companies like IBM and Novell.

Automating web applications vulnerability detection
Sitesecuritymonitor.com provides leading protection services for small and medium businesses, to help them protect their infrastructures against malware, hackers and most importantly of all, website compromise.

With more and more companies shifting their business and operations to an online solution every day, Sitesecuritymonitor.com encounters all sorts of customers using all sort of technology available on the internet.  During their penetration tests, they’ve seen it all.  Web applications developed in PHP, Ruby on Rails, Vb, .NET, Asp, Perl, Python and many other web application development languages.  Dealing with all these different development languages, also means dealing with a large number of different web server software, such as IIS, Apache, Nginx on Amazon ec2 and much more.

Due to the huge increase in demand of businesses needing to secure their web applications, in May of 2009, Sitesecuritymonitor.com added Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner to their web security tools repertoire.  “One can install Acunetix WVS and get it up and running in a matter of minutes”, stated Jason Remillard.  “More important than that, Acunetix WVS is a very flexible web security solution and covers most of the complicated scenarios we meet when doing web application penetration testing.”, continued Mr. Remillard.

Why waste a lot of time to find web application vulnerabilities when Acunetix WVS can do it automatically for you?  “Securing a website is a time consuming, boring and difficult process.  Acunetix WVS helped us shorten that time and ease the whole process, thus leaving us with more time on our hands to hone our penetration testing skills and introduce more value added products.” concluded Mr. Remillard.
