When you’re hacked, your reputation is at stake
Cybersprint developed the next-generation virus-scanner for the web, with real-time detection and warns companies about visible and invisible hacks on their websites. These hacks are often noticed by end-users first, causing indirect reputation damage. When hacks are exposed over a prolonged period (>7 hours), Google will find and index the malicious content, causing long-term reputation damage and possible de-listing of search results. “After having accompanied Prime Minister Mark Rutte during his Cybersecurity Economic Mission to Atlanta in 2015, a lot of national and international doors opened for our startup. For example we are now in close contact with the FBI and Homeland Security”, says Pieter Jansen, CEO of Cybersprint.
