Quick Takes: Web host secures applications

Web host adds tool to secure beyond infrastructure

Managed hosting provider Telenisus has entered an agreement with Sanctum to use Sanctum's AppScan application-vulnerability assessment tool in Telenisus' WebRecon service. Telenisus said the new alliance makes it the first Web host to offer its customers security auditing beyond the infrastructure to hosted Web applications. AppScan can audit custom and packaged software applications, doing so from a hacker's perspective. Telenisus will recommend fixes, including the latest available patches. WebRecon will be free to WebStructure customers. Future scans are susceptible to a one-time charge. Sanctum monitors how individuals interact with a Web application, preventing what it calls Web application perversion. Telenisus is a managed infrastructure service provider. WebStructure, the company's signature product, is a suite of managed hosting, information security and VPN services, delivered over Telenisus' Built for e-Business service delivery platform.
