Is Your Website Hackable?

Find Vulnerabilities with a Free Acunetix Security Audit Acunetix will help 5,000 enterprises protect customer details, credit card numbers and proprietary corporate data

Abuja,Nigeria – Monday, February 27, 2006 – Niche Konsult wishes to inform Nigerian enterprises that in an effort to stem the fast-growing tide of web application security breaches, its website/web application security partner, Acunetix recently announced that it is offering free website security audits to 5,000 enterprise organizations.

Why it is free

Acunetix believes that these audits will prevent hundreds of security breaches that would otherwise have led to valuable customer details, credit card numbers and proprietary corporate data being exposed.

The free security audits will be performed using Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner, a comprehensive tool that automatically audits websites for SQL injection, cross site scripting, Google hacking and other vulnerabilities.

"Many enterprise organizations are simply not aware of how vulnerable their sites are to hackers," said Nick Galea, CEO of Acunetix. “By offering free security audits, we hope to help educate the market on how they can protect themselves from the latest hacking techniques. Our expectation is that this new service will play a valued role in helping to secure valuable enterprise and consumer data that could otherwise be easily accessible to hackers.”

Increasingly, hackers are concentrating their efforts on web-based applications - shopping carts, forms, login pages, and dynamic content. A Gartner Group study determined that 75% of cyber attacks are done at the web application level. Web applications are accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and are a passageway to valuable data: customer and employee databases, transaction information and proprietary corporate data. Many enterprises have addressed network security issues and have implemented firewall technology but have not yet protected their “crown jewels” – data that can be compromised via web application hacks.

Why you need a website audit
