Introducing the BWF Security Pack
Why Website Security?
High profile attacks get big headlines—meanwhile millions of small businesses are targeted each year. Hackers attack small businesses for the same reason they began attacking PCs a decade earlier: the numbers are huge and the security is negligible. Hackers do not discriminate in these attacks. They do not consult the Yellow Pages when choosing targets. They simply wield code designed to find, attack and corrupt vulnerable websites.
Big and small businesses are equally at risk, along with non-profits, charities and bloggers. In fact, the vast majority of business websites that get hacked belong to small businesses, not Fortune 500 companies or powerhouse ecommerce vendors. Despite this, many small business owners think it won’t happen to them. To a criminal hacker, each and every website is a potential money-maker.
What Protection is out there?
There are a number of vendors who supply website security products. Here at BigWetFish we are pleased to announce our new BWF Security Pack in partnership with 6Scan. The BWF Security Pack is the world’s first website security suite that scans and automatically fixes security vulnerabilities in real time. It is designed for small businesses, bloggers and website owners who lack IT resources but still need to secure their website to protect their visitors, brands and revenue streams.
This cloud-based scanner detects known vulnerabilities and mimics commands used in hostile attacks to scour websites for holes, and displays those issues on an easy-to-understand dashboard.
The patent-pending technology then automatically fixes those issues within seconds, leaving hackers with nothing to attack. The pack is also specifically engineered not to affect your site’s performance or interfere with your site’s legitimate users. Our dashboard is specifically designed to convey your security status in a clear and simple manner, so that even non-experts can understand the situation.
Summary of Services
- All of our clients now receive free Quarterly scanning of their sites
- All customers receive free Vulnerability Patching of their sites. (Proactively fix Vulnerabilities to keep sites from being compromised!)
- Customers can upgrade to higher scanning frequency/Vulnerability Patching, or to 6Scan Professional (which includes automatic Malware protection, WAF, and more).

Here is some information on the features:
6Scan’s patent pending Dual Scan approach detects active malware infections and vulnerabilities that could make your site a target for future attacks. This proactive free service works seamlessly in the background to maintain website security.
6Scan includes a Web Application Firewall (WAF) that uses pattern matching to block out even more security threats For the advanced user, our application firewall is completely configurable so you can choose the level of security you desire for your site.
Receive email or SMS messages with scan results. If an issue is found, 6Scan can send a message with details on how the problem was fixed.
When Dual Scan technology discovers an issue, our Auto-Fix solution acts immediately to resolve the problem. With 6Scan installed there is no need to worry about the time, effort or expense required to secure your website and protect your reputation.
Cutting Edge Research
The 6Scan research team works around the clock to find undocumented vulnerabilities. The moment a vulnerability is discovered, our Dual Scan and Auto-Fix features update automatically to proactively protect 6Scan customers from emerging threats.
Adding our 6Scan security badge to your website can increase visitor confidence and clickthrough.
