Outpost24, an industry leader in identifying and managing cyber security exposure, has today announced that it will provide a complimentary web application penetration test for all coronavirus related web applications*. This includes web applications that provide essential health information and guidance about COVID-19, symptom checkers and trackers, and applications created to supporting social distancing, or fundraising and volunteering for those in need during the global pandemic.
In addition, public sector and governmental organizations operating on the frontline to tackle the spread of the coronavirus take advantage of a complimentary one-time cloud security assessment to ensure critical data is being kept protected against common misconfigurations and is operating securely in a public cloud. These security assessments can be performed on AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud environments.
“During the Covid-19 pandemic, many businesses are challenged to maintain continuity while racing to enable and secure their remote workforce,” said Bob Egner, CMO at Outpost24. “With 40% of companies reported seeing increased cyber attacks, it is paramount that security hygiene is not forgotten during this critical time when hackers are determined to exploit any signs of weakness.” Egner added, “Rushing to launch a new web application or standing up new cloud environments are common roots for vulnerabilities and misconfiguration that may create serious cyber liabilities.”
“It’s tempting to pause security assessment while security staff are focused on more pressing issues,” added Martin Henricson, CEO of Outpost24. “To lend a helping hand to the frontline industries and organizations most affected by the pandemic, Outpost24 is dedicating its efforts to help businesses and the wider public improve security postures and maintain cyber hygiene in a very cost-effective way."
Existing Outpost24 customers can take advantage of 60-day trial access to Outpost24 Scale, the company’s Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) solution, which will provide continuous monitoring and assessment against OWASP/CWE findings to mitigate web application vulnerabilities. Additionally, short term Managed Service assistance at a reduced rate is available for customers needing help with maintaining their vulnerability management operations in the face of reduced staff levels and resource strain.
For other organizations wishing to take advantage of Outpost24’s industry leading full stack security assessment solutions, they can expect discounted packages for:
- risk-based vulnerability prioritization tool to improve remediation efficiency
- application and cloud security assessment bundles to automate DevSecOps
