High-Tech Bridge Launches Online On-Demand Web Penetration Testing Service ImmuniWeb®
GENEVA, May 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –
On-demand ethical hacking service delivers new approach to website security
assessment, manually-written report guarantees zero false-positives
After a year of intensive private Beta testing, High-Tech Bridge announces
the general availability of ImmuniWeb(R) [https://www.htbridge.com/immuniweb ] –
its innovative web application and website security testing SaaS (Software-as-a-Service)
that enables anyone, regardless of company size, geographical location or technical
knowledge, to hire professional ethical hackers online for just $990.
ImmuniWeb is a unique hybrid of accurate manual web application penetration test and
cutting-edge vulnerability scanning that are performed in parallel. Manual testing by
professional High-Tech Bridge web penetration testers guarantees zero false-positives and
significantly minimizes the number of false-negatives in the report. The automated side of
the assessment is performed by ImmuniWeb Security Scanner, developed by High-Tech Bridge
from scratch. Project configuration and management, secure online payment and report
delivery is done online via ImmuniWeb Portal [https://portal.htbridge.com ].
ImmuniWeb’s hybrid approach to web application security testing outshines the quality
of the automated tools, scanners and services that currently dominate the market. Every
ImmuniWeb report is manually written by a professional penetration tester who provides
customised solutions for each weakness and vulnerability detected, ensuring that the
customer can easily understand the issues and implement fixes.
Tested on thousands of small and several hundreds of large live websites, ImmuniWeb’s
efficiency has been proven on websites that use different web frameworks, platforms and
web programming languages. Vast majority of security assessments already performed by
ImmuniWeb demonstrated the best vulnerability detection rate compared to traditional
vulnerability scanners and automated SaaS solutions.
Graham Cluley, independent computer security analyst, said of ImmuniWeb
[http://grahamcluley.com/2013/11/ethical-hackers-vulnerability-website ]: “What’s cool is
that the ImmuniWeb service isn’t just a web vulnerability scanner, hunting for flaws on
customers’ websites. At the same time as that is running, High-Tech Bridge also has a team
of ethical hackers, with years of professional web security experience, manually
attempting to penetrate websites, and searching for flaws and weaknesses.”
UN agency, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), uses ImmuniWeb as part of
the toolset to ensure that the governmental websites of ITU’s Member States are secure.
“This partnership with High-Tech Bridge, within the framework of the ITU-IMPACT
initiative, will assist Member States, in particular developing and least developed
countries, to use these tools to improve the security of their websites and counter cyber
threats and related vulnerabilities,” said ITU Secretary-General
Dr Hamadoun I. Toure.
“It certainly appears that the hybrid approach [of web application security testing],
introduced to the global market by ImmuniWeb represents a highly efficient, new generation
solution, offering speed, simplicity, cost-effectiveness and additional quality, afforded
by the parallel manual penetration testing” said Alexander Michael
[http://www.frost.com/sublib/display-market-insight.do?id=280373411 ], Director of ICT
Consulting at Frost & Sullivan [http://www.frost.com ].
Introduced by High-Tech Bridge to the market in 2013 the hybrid approach to testing
web application security benefits from an on-demand SaaS delivery model, simple set up, an
assessment with zero false positives, comprehensive report and competitive pricing.
ImmuniWeb SaaS successfully received CWE and CVE compatibility certification from MITRE in
Ilia Kolochenko, High-Tech Bridge’s CEO, comments: “We are very happy to offer
ImmuniWeb on-demand web penetration testing to everybody today, it’s a very important
milestone for our company and a very positive change for the web security market. This is
the outcome of four years of development and one year of very intensive work under the
Beta version of ImmuniWeb. Beta testing was very useful as we were able to talk to many
different companies, organisations, governments and independent experts who all brought
great ideas on how to make our service better and easier. We considered every opinion to
improve and perfect ImmuniWeb, and we are grateful to all our customers, partners, testers
and security analysts who helped us make it better.”
Marsel Nizamutdinov, High-Tech Bridge’s Chief Research Officer, says: “The entire
ImmuniWeb technology was greatly improved thanks to user feedback while we were in Beta.
Our penetration testing team was better organised and interlinked with our internal
research team and their knowledge base. The ImmuniWeb Security Scanner was enhanced with
many small but effective features and improvements that ameliorated vulnerability
detection algorithms. Revision of some core scanning algorithms permitted us to
significantly increase the scanner’s crawler speed and scope of analysis. As for ImmuniWeb
Portal – it was adopted to make project management even more simple, fast and
