Currently, one of the basic strategic factor in the successful development of the company is the use of information technology. Indispensable element of many businesses is transmission of information via the Internet and other public networks. The amount of data, applications, processes migrated into corporate networks operating in close contact with the Internet, becomes every year more and more. Such situation is possible thanks to the extraordinary effectiveness of this type of organization of the company. Set of business processes that are transferred in electronic commerce, are added to the corporate information system (CIS), which is currently one of the principal means of clear business management and an essential tool of production. As practice shows, corporate information systems, working in close connection with the Internet, bring much more benefit to the enterprise than if they functioned in an intranet network. This is due to the fact that the CIS, working in the Internet, is a single information space that combines most of the internal and external flows of unstructured information and provides the ability to display business processes in the documents available, as staff and consumer products companies and potential customers and investors.

A significant part of business processes shells marketing, customer support, marketing, and supply can be integrated into the CIS as its individual partitions and services. For example, can be arranged special surveys, collects information about visitors preferences, or to develop a closed section that contains information exclusively for clients company. Thus, it is obvious that use of the Internet company has plenty of positive moments. But there are very substantial downside – the more areas functioning of the enterprise is realized through information technology, the more it is exposed to the risk of loss or theft. The danger of virus attacks, unauthorized access, DoS-attacks become real threat to the competitiveness of the company. The consequences of weak protection of information systems can be very sad – the costs of the diversion or destruction of valuable information, such as know-how of various development and production technologies, the structure of the Company or its employees sometimes for large organizations can be assessed in billions of dollars. Therefore, when designing an information system company one of the most important aspects is its level of security. Creating solutions for e-commerce must occur at the strengthened attention to ensure the integrity protection software – implementation safe transactions, privacy, powerful authorization and authentication, accounting job opportunities with high loads and fault tolerance.

Quality and reliable protection company's information resources increases the efficiency of the entire enterprise – when the system is stable and free of damage, users always have access to the necessary business processes and According to CIS, the information is protected from leaks, reduces the chance of a successful attack on the system. Means of attacks on computer systems are developing very intensively. In such circumstances, ensuring information security becomes one of the highest priorities for improvement. To ensure reliable protection of information resources company in the information security system should be implemented most promising and advanced security technology.

In the course of this study was scanned about 3200 Web sites which found more than 210,000 vulnerabilities. And this is an average of about 66 security vulnerabilities for each Web site, ranging from the potentially serious, such as SQL-injection and cross site scripting, and ending with relatively minor, such as easily accessible for listing lists katalogov.Oblasti application vulnerability scanners to identify problems in information security vulnerability scanners are looking for weaknesses and vulnerabilities in information systems using databases that are constantly updated and supplemented by vendors. They fall about unsafe code in applications, incorrect (in terms of information security) settings and systems necessary updates and patches. Using these programs for complex scanning computers, servers and networking equipment, company-owned, with high accuracy to assert that the audited system will be found the vast majority of existing vulnerabilities. Vulnerability scanners have several advantages of using. They can be used to 'pre-scan', for example, to determine which devices and systems are in the network. Systems having the greatest number of vulnerabilities – those of an unknown system administrator. The companies are very common systems and services that were once used, but for now they are abandoned and therefore the software on them is not updated. For other opinions and approaches, find out what leader Naveen Selvadurai has to say.

Such information systems would pose a serious threat to information security throughout the network as a whole. Using scanners vulnerabilities in these cases, substantially reduce the threat to information security company. You can also use vulnerability scanners to assess the level of information security systems after the installation of patches and updates or after the configuration change the software or hardware.
