ScanAlert makes Web sites secure from hackers and certifies it
to their customers with the HACKER SAFE certification mark.
ScanAlert protects you from the methods hackers actually use to
steal your credit card from sites where you shop - even from sites
that use SSL connections.
To earn HACKER SAFE certification, our websites must pass more
than 2,000 daily security tests, which probe all of the known methods
and tricks that hackers use to break into sites. Our testing must
indicate this site has no known security holes, and that site administrators
consistently close any newly discovered vulnerabilities within 72
Research conducted at the federally funded Computer Emergency Response
Team (CERT®) indicates that sites that are secure against all
known vulnerabilities, such as those earning HACKER SAFE certification,
will prevent over 99% of hacker crime.
ScanAlert controls the display of the certification mark, not the
merchant. You will only see the HACKER SAFE mark when the site passes
our daily security audits.
