Dec. 9, 2010 - PRLog -- Gamasec’s leading provider of web application vulnerability scanning, an automated security service that searches for software vulnerabilities within web applications with recommendations for optimally matched solutions; announced the release of a new  Web security application scan as a service through the Cloud. While avoiding maintenance costs, licensing costs and the costs of the hardware required to run servers on-site.

Website application vulnerabilities continue to grow in the presence of an increasingly aggressive and sophisticated mix of attack vectors; companies continue to struggle with balancing the survival needs of their businesses and investing in security technologies and hiring uniquely qualified staff to maintain them. Many companies, especially in the SMB segment, lack the in-house capabilities to keep up with the changing security landscape and challenges.

For companies that want enterprise-class security but do not have the resources to build or manage a complex security solution, GamaSec provides a SaaS-based alternative to traditional website scan hardware and software security products.

GamaSec Cloud Computing website scan make for lower-cost and easier-to-manage Web security solutions. GamaSec website security test is an early-warning system of defense for web operation, applications, and online information suitable for organizations of any size operating on the internet.

Security experts say problems such as this are happening on websites all over the Internet at an alarming rate. Web application vulnerability flaws account for more than 80 percent of the vulnerabilities discovered, according to the SANS Institute. In many cases, attackers exploit a Web application vulnerability to set up an attack that targets coding errors in client-side applications. Even websites flush with cash and an army of programmers can fall victim if one of its pages contain a poorly coded Web application, if user generated content isn't closely monitored or if a user falls prey to account hijacking.

"In the network world when you have an OS vulnerability, you can apply a patch and it's fixed. But what we have now are individual applications coded by different teams with different security knowledge, and there's no one fix," says Michael Coates, a security engineer and volunteer with OWASP, the Open Web Application Security Project. "You can't apply the OS patch to the application so we have to find ways to build them better."

GamaSec believes there are many business and technical benefits for SMBs to consider Website scan via cloud computing as part of their security infrastructure

The business benefits of a SaaS security approach include:

•   Fixed annual service fees for Web security
•   Simplified and predictable annual budgeting for security
•   Reduced administrative workload for security
•   No need for additional purchase of hardware
•   No need for software license acquisitions
•   No implementation costs

Businesses are running all kinds of apps in the cloud these days, like CRM, HR, accounting, and custom-built apps. They cost less, because you don’t need to pay for all the people, products, and facilities to run them. And, it turns out they’re more scalable, more secure, and more reliable than most apps. Plus, upgrades are taken care of for you, so your apps get security and performance enhancements and new features—automatically.

The way you pay for cloud-based website scan is also different. Forget about buying servers and software. When your GamaSec website scan run in the cloud, you don’t buy anything. It’s all rolled up into a predictable monthly subscription, so you only pay for what you actually use.

Finally, cloud apps don’t eat up your valuable IT resources, so your CFO will love it.
