Protecting Your Data Where It Is Most Exposedwebsite security web application security webappsec

You wouldn’t give just anybody access to your mission-critical and sensitive data. We all take steps to protect our networks and the sensitive information contained within.

But the Internet is different. When you launch a website or web application, you are inviting the world to connect with your servers. You are exposing your data to a new and ever-evolving breed of threat. The web is the new perimeter for IT security, and protecting your websites means eliminating every vulnerability.

Read on to find out more about the four phases of website security, or contact us now for more help.


The 4 Phases of Website Security

Asset Identification

How many websites are you responsible for? How many generate revenue or store sensitive data?

The answer isn’t always easy. But WhiteHat Website Security can help.

WhiteHat can identify all of your website assets, based on common traits of mission-critical sites including log-ins, SSL and multi-step forms.

Vulnerability Management

Once you have determined how many websites you are responsible for and which of those are most at risk, you can manage your vulnerabilities.

WhiteHat Website Security combines innovative Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) vulnerability assessment with hands-on verification and support from the WhiteHat Threat Research Center (TRC).

As a result, you can find the vulnerabilities within your web applications, without the risk of false positives.

Once your websites have been assessed, you need actionable intelligence to plan an effective security strategy.

WhiteHat Website Security provides detailed, drill-down reporting to give you a full appraisal of your existing online security and penetration points. This data can also be integrated with risk and security reporting systems including Archer, Snort, Jira, F5 Networks and Imperva.

Website Protection

You know the problems that you are facing. How do you make them go away?

WhiteHat Website Security can help with the next step.

If you decide to remediate the problems manually by reverting to the developers, WhiteHat offers detailed vulnerability descriptions and connectivity with bug tracking systems.

Alternatively, you can connect WhiteHat with WAF for virtual patching, or integrate your results with Snort and your network Intrusion Prevention Systems.

Scalable Website Security

Of course, there are numerous existing solutions for website security. Unfortunately, these solutions do not scale.

You could use a scanner to check your websites now and then. If you’re really fast, you could scan as many as 50 websites a year. Once. That’s just not enough for large enterprises, and that’s a lot of hiring, training, infrastructure building and license fees.

Or why not try a consultant? They will tell you how your website looks today, and alert you to current vulnerabilities. But they make it impossible to see if you’re web security is getting better or worse and no way to track which developer teams are improving or regressing.

WhiteHat Security’s WhiteHat Sentinel combines assessment and consultancy to create the most sophisticated form of website security available.
