Syhunt Introduces All-in-One Web Application Security Software for SMEs

Apr. 22, 2004 — Syhunt, a leading supplier of web application security solutions, today introduced the industry’s first all-in-one web application security software. The Syhunt TS Web Security Suite delivers total security assessment capabilities to small and medium sized enterprises. When combined together, the Syhunt TS family of products – Syhunt TS Security Scanner, Syhunt TS Miner, Syhunt TS Log Analyzer, and Syhunt TS Security Hardening Tool – offers organizations a better way to guard their web applications and web services by conducting vulnerability assessments and penetration tests, and helping to implement appropriate security measures.

“We can illustrate the product’s effectiveness by taking as an example a recently reported SQL injection vulnerability in phpBB systems.”, said Felipe Moniz de Aragao, chairman and chief software architect at Syhunt. “Syhunt TS Web Security Suite offers four layers of protection against this form of attack: first by examining obvious places for the presence of vulnerable scripts, that’s where hackers will try first; second by mapping all the web server’s content and checking the content for vulnerable scripts; next by analyzing the web server’s logs for SQL injection attacks, and finally by suggesting changes to the web server’s security configuration after analyzing the web server’s configuration files.”

“It is a significantly different approach than the used by other software that simply checks for CGI scripts.”

Adriana G. Brandao, corporate vice president of Product Delivery and Response at Syhunt, says while the company prepares to introduce new products, customers worldwide are successfully managing their web site’s security with the help of its web application security software. “A recent FBI/CSI survey found that one in four organizations suffered web attacks last year. Most attacks are aimed at changing or destroying data.”, Brandao says, “Syhunt TS Web Security Suite is a budget-priced software package that address this problem in a comprehensive way.”
