McAfee Web Security Service Technical White Paper
Most security efforts lose effectiveness over time. Any changes in the web server, web applications, or other infrastructure configuration, can unintentionally open the door to security hazards. With so many new threats identified each day, one needs to continually test the security measures and decide which risks are the most important to address. One also needs to know which vulnerabilities are the most critical and require the immediate remediation. The McAfee Web Security Service's accurate vulnerability scanning and reporting technology identifies the presence of security holes, including dangerous web application risks, and then provides the information one needs to prioritize and rapidly address risks across business units and IT groups.
