Website Security Tests Protect Against Application Vulnerabilities

More than four out of every five (85 percent) U.S. businesses have experienced a data breach, according to a recent study by Colchester, Conn.-based law firm Scott + Scott, putting millions of consumers’ Social Security numbers and other sensitive information in the hands of criminals.Website owners are vulnerable to unwanted intrusions by malicious hackers and other harmful codes. If a website’s server and applications are not protected from security vulnerabilities, identities, credit card information, and billions of dollars are at risk.
Many companies rely on a firewall to protect their websites from security breaches. Unfortunately, firewalls do not provide enough protection.Hackers are constantly looking for new ways to compromise systems through unguarded, and sometimes not so obvious, side doors.
A web application scanner should crawl the entire website, analyze in-depth each & every file, and display the entire website structure.

McAfee Secure Protects Consumers
Some things that Mcafee Secure protects you from are identity
theft and credit card fraud. Identity theft and identity fraud are terms used
to refer to all types of crime in which someone wrongfully obtains and uses
another person’s personal data in some way that involves fraud or deception,
typically for economic gain. McAfee protects against this by running a daily
scan of the website and informing them of any vulnerabilities that may be
there.
McAfee Secure also protects websites against credit card
fraud. The daily scanning is also known
as PCI scanning which stands for Payment Card Industry scanning. This means
that the website has passed the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard or
PCI DSS compliance test. This includes
things such as an SSL (secure socket layer) certificate which insures
encryption and security of your online account information. You can be sure
that no one will be able to get your credit card information.
