WebSecurityMonitor is an application designed to protect the user’s web presence. The user’s website can be scanned for spam, malware and other unwanted surprises such as hidden iframes or links to malicious websites. The application so identifies third party applications and lets the user know if any are outdated or if a security patch is available. WebSecurityMonitor also consults blacklists to make sure that the user’s URL doesn’t appear on any. The user’s website is also monitored for hacking or defacement so the user can quickly resolve the matter before it begins to affect their visitors. WebSecurityMonitor periodically tracks downtime throughout the day to make sure the user’s site is accessible to everyone. The user receives a notification if any downtime is detected.Show more screenshots »
