One of the country's top anti-virus software developers, Bach Khoa Antivirus (BKAV), has launched its free online scanning service that allows individuals and companies to better manage security risks on their websites.

Using cloud computing, an online data storage technology, the service allows online-users to detect and evaluate thousands of hacker vulnerabilities and their current security status without installing any software.

According to BKAV's statistics, six Vietnamese websites see attacks from hackers everyday. More than 2000 websites are hacked annually, causing great damage to the development of domestic companies.

According to Nguyen Minh Duc, Director of BKAV's Security Division, the first seven months of testing, the service saw 1,063 registrations for the new BKAV product.

More than 70 percent of the registered websites saw security holes and risks after an initial scan.

The service is provided at BKAV's website: webscan.bkav.com. BKAV is one of the first three antivirus software producers including McAfee and Comodo to provide a free online scanning service.-VNA
