Wegilant's BlackHound simplifies web security

 Wegilant, an IIT Bombay incubated company has launched BlackHound - a cloud-based service that scans websites or web applications for security threats and vulnerabilities. BlackHound runs on a private cloud, which makes it easily scalable to scan multiple websites within few minutes. One can also schedule scans & receive thoroughly prepared audit reports to their inbox directly.

BlackHound is a result of research conducted by Mr. Toshendra Sharma as a part of his M.Tech thesis at IIT Bombay. According to Mr. Toshendra Sharma, "The impact of overlooking web security could be huge. Recent reports showed hackers earned $12.5 billion in 2011, mainly by spamming, phishing, and online frauds. Adobe, Facebook, Google - Biggest ever firms are facing hacking pressure. A month ago, we all know Adobe was hacked. But the scale of damage has been higher than initially estimated and may even make it the biggest hacking ever!"
With BlackHound, Wegilant wants to tap the individual & company owned website market. Most businesses across the globe are getting online, and this trend is more so evident in India. BlackHound will make website security affordable and scalable for individuals, small, medium and enterprise clients. Some of the highlights of BlackHound:

  • Detailed reports that help developers patch security threats
  • Schedule scans for up to 6 months in advance
  • No installation required since BlackHound runs on the cloud.
