Estonian based web security startup WebARX, the company who is also behind open-source plugin vulnerability scanner WPBullet and soon-to-be-released bug bounty platform plugbounty.com, has a big vision for a safer web. It built a defensive core for websites which is embedded deep inside the company’s DNA as even ARX in their name refers to the citadel (the core fortified area of a town or city) in Latin. WebARX—web application security platform—allows web developers and digital agencies to get advanced website security integrated with every site and makes it more effective and less time-consuming to manage security across multiple websites. Anyone can find reviews such as “WebARX – the Swiss army knife that secures websites!”, “The security software that uses every day,” “Many Promise – WebARX Delivers” from their Trustpilot page, so where is all that coming from?

WebARX is solving a risk that deals with third party components within web applications and other problems dealing with website plug-in. According to researchers, the latest findings show that almost 98% security vulnerabilities within the WordPress ecosystem are related to a plug-in which is meant to expand both the functionality and feature of a website. WebARX is also planning to launch the first open-source plug-in bug bounty platform called plugbounty.com which will be released in coming weeks. Recently WebARX has gained a massive following for its security products and services. The product is also hailed as the latest sophisticated solutions for modern websites which are built on WordPress or another programming language like PHP. Using the service it takes less than a few minutes to add a site to the portal. The company also protects websites from malicious traffic, unwanted bot requests, and prevents OWASP TOP 10 vulnerability exploitation. As DNS firewall is often bypassed which is not the case when WebARX is running in the background it acts as a source of strength for a website which installs the WebARX software solution.
