Launch of unique service that can detect how hackable websites and web applications

Web security company High-Tech Bridge’s new system uses AI and Big Data to map risks from cyber criminals and threats via its new non-intrusive product, ImmuniWeb® Discovery AI.

The launch follows the company’s recent research of FT 500 global companies, which revealed that abandoned, shadow and legacy web applications are deemed the top ‘Achilles heel’ because they virtually invalidate corporate cybersecurity spending and undermine compliance.

To combat the problem, the team at High-Tech Bridge has developed an ingenious tool that simply requires a company name and main website to start a comprehensive investigation into where security holes can be found.

Both abandoned and active external web and mobile applications, web-based APIs, domain names, website security certificates and unprotected cloud storage can all be explored.
The resulting audit allows IT and security teams to identify external attackable surfaces and address emerging threats in a timely manner, using the approach that reduces overall application security spending and prevents data breaches.

The new product quickly provides users with a hackability score (0-99) to estimate how easily the web application can be hacked from a technical point of view. An attractiveness score then shows how appealing the app is to potential cybercrime groups.

CEO and founder at High-Tech Bridge, Ilia Kolochenko, said: “Concerns about a cybersecurity skills shortage are growing even faster than global cybercrime. Security professionals are being increasingly overloaded with a great variety of tasks, often of a trivial or routine nature.

“Few companies have time and resources to build a thorough application security strategy, only to get hacked at the end of the day.

“Here at High-Tech Bridge, we are continuously innovating and developing new technologies to unburden cybersecurity experts and empower them to focus on important tasks.”

The company says it is currently working on other “cool stuff” which is being kept under wraps but will pioneer the application security industry.
