ITU Unveils New Solution to Secure Government Websites

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU), a specialised agency of the United Nations focused on issues that concern ICT, unveiled the newest addition to its website security toolset as part of ongoing efforts to help its 193 member states evaluate and secure their government websites. According to an official statement, many government institutions don’t have enough resources to prioritise information risks and this is why government websites often become the victims of hackers. ImmuniWeb® SaaS from High-Tech Bridge, the newest addition to ITU’s security toolset, will enable governments to evaluate the state of their web security in a fast, simple and affordable manner. The unique hybrid service combines a cutting-edge web security scanner for automated vulnerability assessment, and an accurate manual web application penetration test performed in parallel by security experts. “This new solution will assist member states, in particular developing and least developed countries, to use these tools to improve the security of their websites and counter cyber threats and related vulnerabilities,” said ITU Secretary-General Dr Hamadoun I. Touré.
