Website Defender - New online website security service

I’m proud to announce a completely new product from the Acunetix team - our new online website security service, WebsiteDefender. WebsiteDefender will protect your website from malware and hackers by scanning for security issues such as outdated or insecure Wordpress plug ins and by monitoring your website for suspicious activity.

WebsiteDefender is one of the first and definitely the most feature rich online website security service. Its built on the pioneering know how we gained whilst developing the market leading Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner software.

WebsiteDefender is not an online version of Acunetix. Whilst Acunetix Vulnerability Scanner is used to scan for security issues in web applications, WebsiteDefender scans and monitors a website, and checks for Malware, Insecure Wordpress plug ins, file changes, administrator credentials changes and so on. In that sense its more like “Website Intrusion Detection“.

WebsiteDefender goes live today as BETA. You can sign up for a free account here, or learn more here.

I look forward to hearing your feedback!
