• New WebsiteDefender from @Acunetix worth a look-see

    13 Jun 2011

    The folks at Acunetix have a neat new product/service called WebsiteDefender. I’ve yet to try it myself but it looks promising – fills a nice niche.

    WebsiteDefender is an agent-based tool for websites and WordPress-based blogs that:

    • Scans your site for security flaws
    • Detects malware running on your site
    • Alerts you to suspicious web site activity including file changes

    The obvious benefit is to have a more secure online presence but as Acunetix is marketing WebsiteDefender, it can also keep you from getting blacklisted by Google and presumably from being listed as questionable by services like Web of Trust.

    Certainly worth checking out. More info to come once I take it for a spin…
