Syhunt Technology, a global leader in web application vulnerability assessment software, today announced the general availability of Sandcat™ Professional Edition 2.7, the latest release of Syhunt's powerful fault-injection test tool. Sandcat now provides OWASP PHP Top 5 Vulnerabilities testing and closely follows the new “Open Web Application Security Project” (OWASP) guidelines. The OWASP PHP 5 testing covers remote command execution, XSS (cross-site scripting), SQL injection, PHP configuration and filesystem attacks, and can help minimize these security threats.
Syhunt's tradition of innovation continues with Sandcat Professional 2.7. Sandcat Pro Edition 2.7 is designed to enable Web developers and administrators find and fix web application vulnerabilities, ensuring that their Web infrastructure is secure.
Sandcat can help developers determine conformance with the most important SANS and OWASP guidelines, such as the SANS Top 20, the OWASP Top 10 and the recent OWASP PHP Top 5.
These guidelines address the most critical security problems facing companies today and have been developed with input from hundreds of professionals in the security industry.
"Before Sandcat, companies had to manually test web applications, which is usually a difficult, cumbersome and time-consuming task" said Felipe M. Aragao, Syhunt chairman and chief executive officer. "With Sandcat, companies of any size, from small and mid-size businesses to enterprise corporations can now effectively and rapidly test their web applications to ensure they meet the recommendations from the current guidelines."
Aditional tools in Sandcat Pro include Sandcat Log Analyzer which can analyze Web server logs to find attacks; and Sandcat Hardener, a web server hardening tool that evaluates security threats and identifies appropriate countermeasures at the web server configuration stage. Sandcat now also allows to specifically scan for SQL Injection or XSS vulnerabilities.
Pricing and Availability
Sandcat 2.7 is available now for download online. Pricing begins at $349 US and is based on the number of web servers that require scanning and the number of users that will be performing the security assessment.
