Saltycloud Announces Signup of 250th Campus for Dorkbot Service
Automated Web App Vulnerability Scanner Gains Traction in EDU Space
Austin, TX: Salty Cloud, PBC, a SaaS InfoSec company specializing in providing scalable security solutions to EDU and government sectors, announced today its 250th EDU campus deployment for the Dorkbot service. Dorkbot is a hosted and automated web application vulnerability scanner that assesses and evaluates potential vulnerabilities on high-risk webpages.
Dorkbot uses open and publicly sourced information to map a client’s web presence and identify potential vulnerabilities instead of relying on legacy, bandwidth-consuming spidering technology. Web pages with putative vulnerabilities are tested to confirm the presence of the vulnerability and eliminate false positives. Verified vulnerabilities are sent to the client in actionable format including: offending URL, screenshot demonstrating vulnerability, and remediation instructions.
In a recent survey, 53% of Dorkbot users said “Wow – Dorkbot really fills a key gap in my defensive security tool-kit.” One user commented “[Dorkbot is] a shining light in the choppy sea of security products that want our time and money.”
