The Singaporean Startup Expimont Building the Future of Website Security
In a report by positive technologies, as much as 85 percent of the web applications had vulnerabilities that allow attacks against users. This is the figure that Singaporean startup Expimont wishes to combat.
“The internet has been expanding at an extraordinarily quick pace; however, cyber security has not managed to keep up,” says Expimont CEO Ivan Persson. He explains that the majority of web applications today were not designed with cyberthreats in mind and proceeds to state that this is a significant issue and is a threat to both companies and users alike.
Expimont has developed a SaaS solution that significantly reduces the chance of data theft and other cybercrime by identifying malicious requests and taking appropriate action before they reach their customers’ servers. In combination with this, they’ve developed a dashboard that allows its users to adjust security settings and view statistics regarding their protected websites.
Although there are undoubtedly many websites that were designed and secured against the threats of the time, Ivan says, most do not keep a dedicated security team in perpetuity. As a result, they will be susceptible to zero-day exploits and other new cyberthreats that pop up all the time.
“Using Expimont is more scalable, cost-effective, and reliable than on-premise solutions,” he says. “We’ve secured and accelerated dozens of web applications to date, and we’ve received great feedback.”
Today, companies are not left with many choices — they can opt for a dedicated security team, ignore the topic altogether, or go for a solution like that which Expimont provides. He explains that opting for a dedicated security team may allow for more specialized solutions though they’re in most cases extraordinarily costly and are not as reliable in the long term.
“To embrace the future, we will start accepting cryptocurrency as a payment method, and we stand behind the principle of privacy,” he concludes with.
