"Web sites are often vulnerable to attack, and oftentimes sites are compromised without the knowledge of the web site owners or its users," said Scott Crawford, research director for EMA. "While organizations want to ensure security, many lack the resources to identify possible security issues, or they do not know where to start. Using a free service like Qualys FreeScan can help organizations proactively gain visibility into possible issues so they can take the steps needed to protect their web sites and online visitors."
