How It Works

Powerful Automated Website Protection

Now with Server-side Scanning!

At 6Scan we continue to break new ground in the fight against hackers. Our latest innovation is our Server-side Scanning: an advanced technology that scans your website for any hidden backdoors left behind by hackers. This is the industry's first real-time malware solution that works automatically on the web application layer - dramatically reducing the risk window between infection and remediation. Not only does this secure your visitors against drive-by downloads and malicious redirects it protects your business from being blacklisted and effectively disappearing from search engines and popular browsers.

Effective website security requires experience and dedication, but too often "website administrator" is merely another hat worn by an under-resourced team or individual. 6Scan, the world's first automated website security suite, takes over this critical task, allowing you to focus on what's most important to you: running your business. Our patent-pending technology scans and automatically fixes critical issues that - if left unresolved - could damage your website's reputation and drag down your revenue. It's designed for small businesses, bloggers and website owners who lack IT resources by still need to secure their website to protect their visitors, brands and revenue streams. If your website is core to your brand, trust its security to 6Scan.

Our free scan identifies vulnerabilities that could allow hackers to gain access to the systems behind your website. This scan also delivers information on existing malware that hackers may have installed and perhaps already exploited.

Why Would Hackers Target My Site?

When a major financial institution or retailer is hacked, it makes headlines. That coverage encourages the misconception that attackers are only after banks, large companies, or critical infrastructure. However, a more accurate view of the risks facing small business websites comes from industry reports. Case in point: a Verizon 2013 Security Report found that 71% of data breaches affected companies of 100 employees or fewer.

Hackers strike for many reasons, and they have a lot to gain from a successful attack on sites of all sizes. Any site, no matter how small, can help them in their efforts to steal information, infect PCs and conduct other malicious activities. The infographic below illustrates what hackers have to gain from attacking your website. 6Scan is purpose-built to protect you from these threats.
