Driven by a relentless desire for customer satisfaction and leveraging over a decade of experience in security and risk management, he is primarily responsible for the strategy and roadmap of McAfee's enterprise vulnerability management offerings, including the web application assessment module.

Web applications have exploded to become the point of entry for hackers wanting to do harm. Knowing how and where web applications are vulnerable is key to sustaining goodwill and ensuring a positive experience for those who rely on those applications. Learn tips and techniques for effectively scanning web applications to keep them safe and secure. Hear about best practices from other McAfee customers for web application scanning.
Mykonos Software approaches Web application security differently. We understand how Web applications are abused by criminal attackers to steal data, commit fraud, or use company IP for un-intended tasks.
The Mykonos Security Appliance detects malicious abuse of web applications before the damage is done. This software solution profiles the abuse through intelligence gathering and responds to any abuse in real-time ultimately preventing data theft, fraudulent behavior and misuse of your Web properties.
