IRVINE, Calif., May 17 /PRNewswire/ -- NT OBJECTives, a leading innovator
in Web application security, today releases two new freeware tools, NTOinsight
2.0 and NTOweb. By combining NT OBJECTives' leading automation and software
intelligence features with Nikto's comprehensive database of attack
signatures, these new tools create a freeware offering that exceeds many
commercial software product capabilities.
"We have been using NTOinsight since version one was released six months
ago," said Scott Wilson, Partner at Marathon Consulting. "It provides us with
useful HTML reports which are distributed to development, QA, security, and
management to improve all aspects of our websites, especially security. It's a
pretty impressive tool, especially for freeware."
The combination of NTOinsight 2.0 and NTOweb strengthens overall website
security by raising awareness of threat exposure and the existence of common
vulnerabilities. NTOinsight scans websites and analyzes site content,
architecture and external interdependencies, enabling a user to visualize site
exposure and attack vectors. New features to NTOinsight 2.0 include updated
authentication. NT OBJECTives' newest tool, NTOweb, is a free vulnerability
assessment plug-in to NTOinsight that works with the Nikto vulnerability
database to detect over 3,100 web server vulnerabilities.
"Over 110,000 people have downloaded security tools from NT OBJECTives,
including 10,000 downloads of NTOinsight 1.0," said Mike Shema, CSO of NT
OBJECTives and author of numerous web application security books including the
recent Hack Notes: Web Security. "Considering other companies sell the
features available in NTOweb for thousands of dollars, we expect this new tool
to be the most popular one yet."
About NTOinsight 2.0
NTOinsight is a free command-line website analysis tool capable of
scanning even the largest websites: analyzing site content, architecture, and
external interdependencies. NTOinsight crawls all site links/resources and
catalogues them with their resource attributes (i.e. file type, forms, mail
ids, applets/objects, hidden fields, cookies, authentication, SQL connections
and more). NTOinsight generates XML and HTML reports that graphically
communicate all findings, including web server platforms, response codes,
resource details and site interdependencies (links leaving the domain, passing
information, etc.). Furthermore, NTOinsight identifies "Attack Points"
targeted by hackers, thus communicating the extent of site threat exposure.
About NTOweb 1.0
NTOweb is a freeware vulnerability assessment plug-in for NTOinsight that
scans for the more than 3100 known vulnerability signatures in the Nikto
database. Capable of automatic updates from the Nikto database, NTOweb
assesses over than 625 web server platforms, and is one of the most
comprehensive and well-supported web server vulnerability databases available.
NTOweb reports are automatically included within NTOinsight scan reports and
are built off of NT OBJECTives' industry leading designs.
