Karlskrona, Blekinge, Sweden, 2011/04/29 - Through using OUTSCAN; Funda is able to effectively manage the risk on their external network while saving time and money - Outpost24.com.
Outpost24 has successfully helped the leading real estate website in The Netherlands in finding an automated process for vulnerability management to reduce the amount of time spent on finding and correcting identified vulnerabilities manually. With several sources of income stemming from webvertising, E: marketing and sponsorship of the fundamental elements of the website averaging 11 million visits and 250 million page views per month – the securing of Funda’s external network was imperative to Funda IT Manager Marcel Begnor.
Marcel Begnor, Funda IT Manager, says “In my experience using vulnerability scanners, I see that OUTSCAN is a unique product different from anything I have seen before. Several colleagues of mine were impressed by how easy to use the interface is. It looks like a desktop and allows users to resize and move windows around which makes it nice to work with. And it’s not an application that you need to start up, I can go home or on a vacation and login to the system from anywhere. It definitely has some unique features I have never seen before.”
Delivered as a Software as a Service (SaaS), OUTSCAN is an on-demand automated external vulnerability assessment and management tool which can be immediately deployed and requires no installation or maintenance. An indispensable tool for managing and reducing risk exposure, OUTSCAN combines ease-of-use with rich functionality and a powerful vulnerability scanning engine into a unique solution.
Begnor states,“There was an instance where I was surprised to see that the OUTSCAN report showed a high-risk finding on one of our company web-apps which runs on port 443. So, I started to look into the high-risk finding, which revealed a possible XSS/cross site scripting exploit. Two weeks later the manufacturer distributed an E: saying they had serious exploits in the products with XSS/cross site scripting and that customers needed to update their servers and systems. So, Outpost24 actually gave me the warning two weeks in advance which was fantastic.”
OUTSCAN has proved to be a unique, easy-to-use tool for vulnerability management, combining convenient workflow tools and time saving user settings with accurate up to date vulnerability findings.
