Jersey City, NJ, April 08, 2010 — The Comodo companies, a leader in online security, announce the latest version of HackerProof™ for e-commerce merchants, a service that helps convert website visitors to buyers by certifying that the site has been tested and meets Comodo's stringent security standards.
HackerProof's enhancements and new features include:
The HackerProof trust mark is available to sites that pass Comodo's vulnerability scans and that are certified to be free of security gaps. E-commerce merchants value the HackerProof trust mark as an endorsement of the site's credibility because millions of people associate the Comodo brand with trust and security, making Comodo's brand credibility one of the highest among vulnerability scanning providers.
To demonstrate the value of HackerProof, Comodo offers the program, along with its enhanced reporting capabilities, to merchants for free for 90 days so they can see an increase in site conversion rates prior to paying for the service.
HackerProof also offers quarterly PCI Scanning for businesses that receive, transmit, or store credit card information. Comodo CA Limited is a PCI Approved Scanning Vendor.
HackerProof also protects site visitors from malicious web content. Acting as a vulnerable customer, its SiteInspector feature. visits the site, searches for malicious web content, and reports its findings so that site owners may take corrective action. This protects visitors—potential customers—from drive-by attacks and other hacker threats.
Like all HackerProof's scans, SiteInspector offers on-demand scanning, reports and scheduling.
