WEBWIRE – Wednesday, December 19, 2012

Gamasec (www.gamasec.com), an online web vulnerability-assessment service delivered via SaaS (software-as-a-service), designed to identify security weaknesses in web applications, announced today their partnership with CloudFlare (www.cloudflare.com), the web performance and security company. Together, the companies will deliver top-rated website performance and security for small and midsize online businesses.

In the past, security breaches occurred at the network level of the corporate systems. Today, hackers are manipulating web applications to get inside the corporate firewall. This entry enables them to access sensitive corporate and customer data. An experienced hacker can break into most commercial websites with even the smallest hole in a company’s website application code. These sophisticated attacks have become increasingly threatening to organizations.

Built from the ground up on a completely different technology backbone than its competitors, GamaSec goes beyond signature-based tools to find more “real” vulnerabilities. The GamaSec Application Vulnerability Scanner identifies application vulnerabilities ( e.g. Cross Site Scripting (XSS), SQL injection, Code Inclusion etc.. ) as well as site exposure risks. It also ranks threat priority, produces highly graphical, intuitive HTML reports, and indicates site security posture by vulnerabilities and threat exposure an ideal protection for all types of websites, from content-only to large e-commerce websites.

“We’re excited to offer GamaSec’s security scanning service to CloudFlare customers in the CloudFlare app marketplace,” said John Roberts, Platform Lead at CloudFlare. “Security shouldn’t be hard and instant-on scanning is a great complement to CloudFlare’s website protection.”

“We are excited to offer the GamaSec scan services through CloudFlare. It’s an ideal way to quickly improve Web security with minimum resources,” said Avi Bartov Co –founder and GamaSec CEO. “Web applications are proving to be the weakest link in overall corporate security. Organizations need a Web application scanning solution that can scan for security loopholes in Web-based applications to prevent would-be hackers from gaining unauthorized access to corporate applications and data.”

GamaSec’s cloud-based security scan services an early-warning system of defense for web operation, applications, and online information, suitable for organizations of any size operating on the internet available to all CloudFlare customers via the CloudFlare application platform: https://www.cloudflare.com/apps/gamasec
