SANTA CLARA, Calif. " April 14, 2009 " WhiteHat Security, the leading provider of website risk management solutions, today announced its newest service " WhiteHat Sentinel Baseline Edition (BE). Designed to address entry-level website security needs, WhiteHat Sentinel Baseline provides a cost-effective, fully automated assessment service that identifies business-critical vulnerabilities. WhiteHat Sentinel Baseline joins the Sentinel Standard and Premium editions to provide a full suite of solutions that are the core of a comprehensive website risk management program. Now, organizations of all sizes can implement continuous, essential website security assessments that map directly to their risk profile and their IT budget.

Today's economic climate, combined with increased attacks on websites, creates a greater demand for flexible, cost-effective solutions to identify website security issues and mitigate threats. With WhiteHat Sentinel BE, any business can identify the critical, pervasive vulnerabilities that put data at risk without over-extending their budgets.

For companies making an initial foray into website security, driven by Payment Card Industry (PCI) and other compliance issues, Sentinel BE saves resource-constrained security departments time and money. By delivering the only verified, actionable results in the industry, PCI-ready reports and an easy-to-use Web interface for tracking and trending, Sentinel BE gives every organization an advantage in the fight against website attacks.

"WhiteHat's goal is to ensure that businesses have options available that suit their specific needs and budgets based on their unique risk exposure. We added WhiteHat Sentinel BE to our family of services as yet another option to address the diverse and ever-changing website security needs of the enterprise."
