Free tool checks the security of your payment website

The rules of Internet security are always changing and it can be challenging to stay on top of every new vulnerability that is discovered. Here at EveryBill we address this problem by periodically analyzing our clients’ payment websites with a great free web tool from SSL Labs, a leader in website security analysis. Take a few minutes to try it own your own payment site. All you have to do is enter the URL of the webpage you want to test, and click “Submit.” (Be patient. It takes a few minutes to generate results.)

Three questions to consider when looking at the results:

1) Did you pass?

With the vulnerabilities released over the past 18 months, the standard of “strong cryptography” has moved significantly. Over the past 18 months, over half of prominent transport-layer security standards have been proven insecure.

2)  What grade did you receive?

“Up-to-date” SSL configuration settings typically sacrifice security in favor of supporting a wide variety of computers and users. This has been a balance for years, but the winds have shifted significantly over the past year. It is now a much better policy to use strong cryptography.

3) How do you fix issues with your score?

There are several free technical guides online to instruct your staff on securing your servers. SSL Labs publishes a guide which includes instructions on improving your score. Furthermore, a TrustWave PCI-certified scan will help you evaluate your weaknesses.
