Keep your site safe from malware & hackers

Site Scanner looks for malware links on your site and crawls the code for security gaps that a hacker could use to steal customer information and infect your visitors with spyware and viruses. Learn more about common ways a hacker can exploit your site and your customers.


Don't let your site get banned by Google

Google is constantly on the lookout for websites with suspicious activity. If it appears that your website may be spreading malware or viruses – even inadvertently – Google will ban your site and it won't appear when searched. Site Scanner looks for these vulnerabilities before they happen and does a daily check against the Google Safe Browsing list to make sure your site hasn't been blacklisted.


Direct access to Security Experts – FREE

For help, call our security hotline to speak to one of our experts – at no additional cost! Or use the online dashboard for help, education and information about IT security best practices.

With Site Scanner, there's no software to manage and it's easy to set up. Daily scans check for thousands of Web-based vulnerabilities, then send you an email alert with a simple scorecard to let you know the severity of the issue: "Critical", "Warning" or "Informational".

If a vulnerability is discovered, your easy-to-read scorecard ranks the threat severity as either "Critical", "Warning" or "Informational", so you can prioritize and respond accordingly.

The Web can be a dangerous place. Let Site Scanner protect you.

Site Scanner looks for weaknesses on your website that a hacker can exploit. It scans forms, login and password fields, internal and external links – places where a hacker could get in to deface your website, steal information or infect your customers with malware. Site Scanner scans for more than 3,000 vulnerabilities every day, including spyware, back doors, SQL injection opportunities and cross-site scripting (XSS) holes. Here are just a few common examples:


Stealing your customer information

Input fields can be a hacker's playground. Any field that asks a visitor to enter information like their name, address, email, login name or password can allow a hacker into your website database, exposing all of your customer's information! When fields aren't checked properly, hackers can insert code that exposes everything in your database. This is a favorite exploit for identity theft.


Defacing your website

There is no better way to scare off customers than for a hacker to vandalize your website. Hackers can inject malicious code into input fields, so when your visitors submit comments or forms, derogatory messages appear. This makes it clear that your site is not secure!


Infecting your customers

Links on your website are also a common access point for hackers. For example, you may include a link on your site for your customers to download product information. If the URL is not properly checked on the server side, hackers can inject malicious code that redirects customers to another site and deploys spyware or malware to their computers.


Don't be blacklisted by Google®!

Without Site Scanner, you might not even know that your website is being used to spread malicious software. If your site is deemed "suspicious" by Google, they will "blacklist" it from their search engine – causing you to lose traffic, customers and sales. Site Scanner works to alert you of vulnerabilities before this can happen – and checks Google Safe Browsing daily to make sure your website isn't on the "blacklist".
