Alexandria, VA, June 03, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Bitrix, Inc. (www.bitrixsoft.com), a technology trendsetter in business communications solutions, has published a white paper (http://www.bitrixsoft.com/download/WP_Security_ENG.pdf) with a detailed analysis of the current state of affairs in web security, an overview of current hacking techniques and guidelines for selecting web content management software that can handle today’s security challenges and ensure business continuity.
Judging simply by news headlines, one would think there is warfare going on in the Internet; it is a rare that a week passes without a breaking news story about a major hacker attack, identity theft or a malware outbreak. However, this seemingly apocalyptic scenario does not reflect reality and important details are skipped over owing to a lack of understanding of the roots of the situation, allowing feelings of panic to pervade and leaving the dooms and negative connotations picked up from Hollywood blockbusters.
Much of the success of web-borne malicious code in creating such a large footprint is due to web applications vendors’ negligence concerning security issues coupled with users’ carelessness about basic web hygiene.
A simple analysis of the web content management solutions market reveals a vulnerability that is as serious as it is common. Vendors normally pay no attention to supply their products with even elementary security tools to compete with the ever-threatening hostile environment. As a result, customers face the inevitable need to purchase and deploy additional software and hardware that leads an increase in cost of the web project, growing complexity and significantly more expertise from IT staff or third-party consultants to integrate these solutions.
The white paper was authored by Marsel Nizam, Head of Web Security Development at Bitrix and supervisor of the development of the PRO+PRO™ (http://www.bitrixsoft.com/products/intranet/security.php) security framework undergirding the company’s flagship products. The white paper is based in his 10+ years’ experience in web security and allows decision-makers to understand modern web-borne threats and ways to secure web assets by selecting proper web content management solution, as well as to get a plethora of useful security-related advice.
The white paper “Web security is within your reach. 10 ways to keep hackers in check and ensure safe web resources” is available online in PDF for download (http://www.bitrixsoft.com/download/WP_Security_ENG.pdf).
