High-Profile Hacks Reveal Flaws in Website Security; Trust Guard Provides Compliance Scanning to Protect Against Hackers

OGDEN, Utah, Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Recently, a widespread system outage on GoDaddy.com resulted in the crash of thousands of websites. A hacker group claimed responsibility for the crash, raising serious questions about Internet safety. This huge crash reveals just how vulnerable Web servers and websites still are, despite years of security advances. Trust Guard™ (http://www.trust-guard.com/) offers a reliable way to test sites for weaknesses and fix them before problems arise.

Trust Guard™ provides compliance testing and scanning tools that effectively safeguard a website against the sort of attack that happened to GoDaddy. The payment card industry (PCI) has developed an industry standard for website security; Sites that meet this standard have a low risk of breaches and data loss. Trust Guard™ delivers PCI compliance scanning that actively checks for more than 45,000 known vulnerabilities. Astonishingly, the majority of small business websites have significant weaknesses in their networks, and hackers know this.

"Trust Guard finds the security holes in your website before hackers do," said company CEO David Brandley. "Hackers don't care how big or small your site is. Their tools are always scanning for vulnerabilities. If they see a weakness, they will exploit it. That's why it's more important than ever to protect customer data. At Trust Guard, we supply tools and technologies that make your website bulletproof. Your customers will certainly appreciate knowing their data is secure."

The team at Trust Guard™ has worked tirelessly to stay a step ahead of malicious hackers. They understand the importance of security and trust in the information age. If customers suspect that a sight is weakly defended, they will take their business elsewhere. A verification seal from Trust Guard™ offers unbeatable peace of mind for both business owners and their customers.

Trust Guard™ offers a full-featured PCI compliance scan via FreePCIScanning.com. The scan is a $47 value, but is available free to first-time customers. Scan results are delivered in the form of an easy-to-read report. Flexible pricing options are available for daily, weekly or quarterly scanning services. Portable devices -- tablets, smartphones -- are just as vulnerable to exploitation as a PC or Web server. Trust Guard™ provides security packages for these devices as well. In addition to business website security, Trust Guard™ also offers identity protection services that protect individuals in the event of identity theft.
