New McAfee Tool Helps Companies Spot Their Leaks

McAfee, Inc., announced this week that its leading security services group, Foundstone Professional Services, a division of McAfee, has released SiteDigger 2.0, a security tool designed to help companies identify information that has been made available on the Web.

The Foundstone SiteDigger 2.0 tool uses indexed search information at Google to quickly pinpoint human error information vulnerabilities that appear on search engines, such as the accidental exposure of confidential information including financial records, passwords, and personal information on an organization's Web site.

Armed with a profile of their Web site weaknesses discovered by using the SiteDigger tool, organizations can proactively minimize information leaks and reduce the risk of exploitation.

Sophisticated search engine technology and methods for discovering information are proliferating at a rapid rate, and utilizing SiteDigger 2.0 helps companies easily and quickly identify information vulnerabilities. The tool includes seven categories including: privacy, back-up files, configuration mistakes, remote administrator interface, error messages, public vulnerabilities, and technology profile.

"While companies have become increasingly vigilant about guarding their corporate networks from break-ins, they also need to be able to account for potential human errors with information inadvertently made visible on the Internet," said Mark Curphey, director of consulting for Foundstone Professional Services at McAfee, Inc."
