WhiteHat Sentinel Elite. Sentinel Elite is a new service that combines the company’s most comprehensive vulnerability website assessment processes with an additional money back guarantee. Should a customer suffer a website breach due to a vulnerability that WhiteHat should have discovered but missed, the customer will be fully refunded.
Sentinel Elite builds on the proven security of WhiteHat Sentinel, which offers the lowest false-positive rate of any web application security solution available as well as more than 10 years worth of website vulnerability assessment experience. This service, combined with a one-of-a-kind security guarantee from WhiteHat gives customers the confidence in both their purchase decisions as well as the integrity of their websites and data.
“The information security industry has grown too comfortable with the notion of unguaranteed protection and, quite frankly, customers deserve more than that,” said Jeremiah Grossman, founder and iCEO of WhiteHat Security. “Most security vendors do not know with any true certainty what their product failure rate, or security product gap that can lead to breach, is; therefore, they are not willing to stand behind their customers in the event that their technology or service fails to deliver as promised.
“WhiteHat Security wants to shift that mentality; we have the data to back up the effectiveness of our solution and we are putting our money where our mouth is with Sentinel Elite,” added Grossman.
WhiteHat Security has more than a decade’s worth of data from tens of thousands of website vulnerability scans, backed and verified by a team of more than 100 applications security specialists in the company’s Threat Research Center (TRC). This information combined with a number of other contributing data points – including shared data from Verizon and other incident response vendors as well as information provided directly from customers on anything from ‘missed’ vulnerabilities, to real breaches – results in a failure rate by WhiteHat Sentinel of less than .01 percent.
