NSFOCUS Web Vulnerability Scanning System (WVSS)

Partners / Technology Partners / NSFOCUSWeb Vulnerability Scanning System (WVSS) >

Complex attacks on web-based applications are on the rise, accounting for approximately 40 percent of all data breaches in 2016. As organizations rely more heavily on critical web-based applications and continue to migrate valuable and sensitive data to the cloud, the number of security risks they face continues to grow exponentially.

To combat this growing threat, NSFOCUS provides its Web Vulnerability Scanning System (WVSS) to help ensure enterprises are equipped with the most comprehensive application-layer protection against web attacks. In order for organizations to meet compliance requirements like PCI-DSS, they must have a web application security strategy that includes Web Vulnerability Scanning technologies.

The NSFOCUS WVSS protects websites by identifying vulnerabilities in web applications that can be exploited by hackers. Following identification, it provides the NSFOCUS WAF with actionable analysis and reporting, including a remediation plan to improve the overall security of the website.
