WhiteHat CEO Stephanie Fohn says that you need her company's service if you've got a Web site that takes transactions. WhiteHat is a SaaS vendor that offers black-box penetration tests for Web sites.For most organizations, ferreting out e-commerce site flaws calls for every technique from element testing and hard core code reviews, to a range of tools that help assess code quality and that test site vulnerability.
