Designed to give any business user a fast snapshot of their level of protection from web-borne threats, the new service harnesses threat intelligence from Cyren's automated global security cloud to provide an easy, yet oftentimes eye-opening self-assessment tool for companies looking to understand the real effectiveness of their web security.
With just one click, Cyren's security test performs a baseline diagnostic of a given organization's potential vulnerability to several cyberthreats and security policy risks, including:
- Common viruses
- Evasive viruses
- Botnet calls to Command & Control servers
- Phishing sites
- Anonymizer site usage
"With this quick, easy-to-use test, actual security performance can be checked by IT staff, C-level executives, or any Internet user on any device – in or out of the office," said Sigurdur Stefnisson, vice president of threat research at Cyren. "We have put Cyren's global threat intelligence to use for this diagnostic in a way that requires no time commitment and no effort from users. This security test is literally one-click and that's it."
The Cyren Web Security Diagnostic does not access any personal data, change any settings, or compromise a user's security in any way. For more information, visit the Web Security Diagnostic.
