Did you know that Symantec offers free vulnerability assessments for Extended Validation Secure Sockets Layer (EV SSL), Premium and Secure Site Pro certificate customers?  The new Symantec service enables quick identification and remediation of the most exploitable weaknesses on public-facing Web pages, Web-based applications, server software and network ports.

In less than three weeks since the October launch of Symantec’s vulnerability assessments, the company has scanned nearly 2000 web sites for critical vulnerabilities that could allow malicious hackers to insert malware or to directly access confidential customer data. Of these sites, more than half had critical vulnerabilities which customers were able to quickly remediate. Symantec identified hundreds of exposures, largely due to outdated software, and has already helped over half of the impacted customers to completely eliminate all identified vulnerabilities.

Could you also benefit from the Symantec vulnerability assessment service?  “Reducing the Cost and Complexity of Web Vulnerability Management” is a new white paper that provides more details on what the solution does and how it works.  Click here to download this paper.
