IT solutions provider Eureka Technology Partners say Sri Lankan business face an equal threat from hackers and other software vulnerabilities as are their overseas counterparts and with the consequences as painful as a labour dispute. Eureka on Tuesday said it had tied up with US based network security company Qualys Inc., to retail its on demand vulnerability management service – basically an early warning system for computer weak-points that a virus of hacker could use to steel information or just destroy valuable data on a computer or an entire network.

On offer, is a box that sits on top of a network server (the place where all computers in an organization go through to connect to the internet and with each other), packed with a nosy software that rummages through all PC’s for its weak spots.

The end result, a report on each PC’s vulnerabilities and available fixes form reputed sources.

The solution will sell at over US$ 1500, with price moving up depending on the number of PCs in use.
