Total Rep-off, Beware of Hacker Safe and ScanAlert or Scan Alert.com , they are so rude and unfriendly people it is a pure $100.00 a month rip-off, all they wanted was their money. Pay today or off the service within minutes, thatís the way they treated me. Credit please or off it goes.
Beware of ScanAlert and Hacker Safe folks. I lost all my money from them and they were so rude with me as well. I gained no more business with them to hear them say well benefit your business, wrong!

Don't waste your money,$100.00 a month to say they'll protect your site for you, don't believe it if you want nothing for nothing:
ScanAlert, Hacker Safe wants you to believe they can do 3 things for you:
1) They'll try to tell you they are FBI internet secure compliant (oh really)
To secure your site - False! It didn't help me, wasn't worth $100.00 a month
Hacker Safe ScanAlert is not prepared for Internet2: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet2
When Internet2 comes, ScanAlert, Hacker Safe, Verisign are out of business. Internet2 will be a completely new regulated internet as US Congress is pushing to close the old internet down in the next 5 to 10 years. This will eliminate all the fraud and unnecessary businesses that have no meaning but waste-less money spending.
2) Increases your sales by 14%- False! Many people don't really read these SSL logo's

3) And they say theyíll give you three one-way links from high PR pages - False! Didn't rank my site better at all
If you heard of Nigerian fraud, they can still enter your site and steal. ScanAlert Hacker Safe or even Verisign canít protect you from that. You need chargeback insurance or insurance ecommerce bonds, something SSLís canít do. Donít be fooled to think someone is going to hack your site if Hacker Safe Scanalert is not on there, there is no difference. If someone hacks, there many ways you can protect your site than paying for a SSL Hacker Safe logo.
Look else where folks, you can get better service for so much cheaper
for $25.00 a month than this huge $100.00 month minimum out of your hard earn money as they will charge you more if you let them. Think, do you want to spend $1200.00 a year? They charge even higher if you don't get a break, like $150.00 or more. Don't let US inflation companies try to take advantage of you. The US is under a major recession period and inflation is happening right as we speak. The Federal Reserve can't control companies raising their prices, again, again and again with a horrible exchange rate. So take control and watch youíre hard earn money. Don't be a sucker pay and for something that sounds so neat but really doesn't benefit you as you think. You try the for 2 to 4 months to see if they work or not, that is throwing away $200.00 or $400.00 to see the results. They money could do something else for you
on another better business decision or charity donation for example. Remember ScanAlert Hacker Safe has affliliate programs, that means money for people to sell you these internet scams.

Also their logo's are terrible looking, same old cheap design. They have
about 5 to 6 logo's that are all basically the same.
Also stay away from Verisign too, they partnered with Hackersafe or ScanAlert
too. Huge rip off if you get both SSL certificate logo's
Please people, I am just trying to tell you just don't go for this sales pitch, you're just hearing something that is a scam business online making so much money for little work in return to get what you pay for. ScanAlert Hacker Safe is not regulated by anybody, they are free to do what they want and charge what they please.
SSL Certificates are unbelievably easy to generate. It takes literally a matter of minutes to make your own. So why exactly are people paying upwards of $1000.00 or more a year for these co called certificates? Because companies like Hacker Safe, Scan Alert, Verisign can. Because they don't know any better and because people fall for unethical marketing tactics. You are paying for a business that has no real physical work, it is like a phony yellow page ad and you are paying big bucks for it. A business that had no nature online 7 years ago came up with a sample easy idea of a cheap Scanalert Hackersafe logo. You can make your own on Microsoft word publisher or Photoshop in about 20 minutes and you got a sample marketing scam logo like Scanalert Hacker Safe. If you got to have a SSL logo, don't pay more than $30.00 month and just look around tell you find something. If you want to talk price send them these complaint links and tell them the price is too high anyway, see if they will knock the price down for you if you insist.
If you ask for a refund too, forget it. No refunds. I just want you to protect your money and don't be sold for something like this. People are putting themselves in debt to pay for phony ideas like Hacksafe Scanalert, all these internet tools are just expensive American wage payoffs when America is under way of a recession to an economic plunge from businesses ripping people off on their money. http://blog.washingtonpost.com/securityfix/20...
Save your money, listen to the http://clarkhoward.com show on national radio daily. Donít get ripped off, save your money and learn not to get ripped of by these so called phony businesses.

I am a U.S. Marine Corps security specialist. I was in charge of the U.S. Marines web site for 3 years. We were the most hacked into site in the world before we deployed the Scan Alert vulnerability scan engine that they developed. Since then we have not been breached at all and they have outstanding technology and the support people are outstanding. I now work for Northrop Grumman a government contractor. Scan Alert secures our site here as well. Again outstanding technology at a price that can not be beat. I have been met with nothing but the utmost professionalism in my dealings with everyone in the company.

I have four retail sites using Hacker Safe. Our conversion rate went up over twenty two percent. This has been one of the best investments I have ever made. I wonder how Fred was able to measure the effectiveness of Hacker Safe. I can hardly believe that with all the companies that are using this service that many others would have seen the same problems that Fred saw. I wouldn't trade this service for the world! Thanks Scan Alert

When I used Scan Alert they said they were going to increase my business for me. I spoke to about 3 people when I was thinking of this $100.00 monthly fee. I call and tried to get real answers from them. I signed on eventually and a few weeks went by I didn't see anything better after the Scanalert security alerts or even with their logo. I called them and they wanted me to buy other options to add on top of the fees to help me more. They claimed there were no flaws on my site but before I signed on, there were no flaws or hacker threats at all anyway.

I called them three months later and said this is not working which I asked for a refund. The said they could not refund my money back which I disputed with them before I signed with Scanalert, they made me many promises. I asked for a refund again and they declined, so I called my bank and they issued a chargeback where I got my money back. So people say they are good and some say they are just too expensive. I was glad to get me money back.

What a joke they are, they called my 150 million dollar company today, a guy named Chris was SUPER RUDE, I told him we have our own security measures in place (By the way they are from some of the top encryption agencies in the world), and he said "Well we protect Microsoft" I said "that's great, who doesn't" I took his name and number, then I told my board of directors to ignore him because he's a complete strokeoff

Hacker Safe is a rip off, use them and found them not affect at all. I noticed no difference on protecting my site nor gaining any better SSL confidence from buyers as well.

I think companies using them as just dumb founded by listening to Hacker Safe's sales people.$100.00 for a security feature is a hawk of crap. That is the biggest sales pitch people listen to.

You can spend less for better than wasting $100.00 a month with Hacker Safe. You are paying people to get rich from a easy marketing tool for people who live in Napa California. This company is laughing at the bank because people are paying them too much for lousy service and bad customer service people.

I signed up for Hacker Safe yesterday for $1450 plus a special $600 hacked site fee, becuase I told them my site was hacked. The total bill should have been about $2000 for the year. This morning I awoke to a $5695.00 charge to my Amex. card. It's Saturday and I can't raise a soul on their toll free 247 support (as I was told in the sales pitch) line. I am demanding a refund and cancellation on Monday morning. I feel more violated by them than being hacked.
Lucky I put it on the Amex.

BTW, it turned out my site was never hacked, a DDOS attack was blamed on mine and a group of other sites, but it turned out to be a false alarm. This false alarm was created by my hosting company to scare customers into buying their newly devised & overpriced firewall and anti hacker security suite.
What the hell is going on these days?
It's impossible to tell the hackers from the non-hackers.

I got a phone call from scanalert.com and the guy was so rude. He asked if I wanted to create more sales and I said yes, but not with Hackersafe. He couldn't believe I said no and asked if I wanted to create more sales or what. I said not with hackersafe, and so he laughed, as I did back and he just put the phone down because his balls are too small to close a deal!! Ha!

It is a rip-off especially with how savy online shoppers are today.

1. NO website is 100% hack safe. If there's a will, there's a way. What exactly do they mean by hacksafe anyways? Customers just care if their credit card information is safe. It's common practice that e-commerce sites don't store credit card numbers. That's handled on the merchant gateway backend.

2. Shoppers will shop on a site regardless if it's hacksafe or not. Credit card security standards are more compliant than a stupid logo on the front of your website.

3.$2,000 a year? Do you know how much traffic you could generate with google ads for $2,000 a year? Why would I rely on a stupid logo to boost my sales. When's the last time you heard someone say, "I only shop on sites with hackersafe logos".

I own a website, and I was doing research on my shopping cart system, when I cam across another merchant who also has the same shopping cart as I do. I immediately noticed that the back end of their web site had been indexed by Google. When I clicked on the link it prompted me for the user name and password. well I tried the default password, and it worked! I had full access to this site, and all of their customers info including Credit card numbers. There were thousands of customers! Anyway they had a Hacker Safe logo on the homepage of the site, so I called Hacker Safe, and asked why this site wasn't secure. They couldn't answer my question, and basically said they do not check to make sure the website owners secure their site, and it is illegal for them to try and hack into their customers site.... WTF... Anyways I called them a fraud, and they got angry with me..... Total Scam.

ScanAlert, Hackersafe both same company both a scam. If you want a SSL logo, design your own, don't pay $120.00 a month to ScanAlert Hackersafe for this false sense of security, they are just making money for nothing. It's like hiring a property management company and giving them 10% of your rent and they do nothing like most do, same here.

You can google Hacker Safe and Scan Alert under problems, beware, scams, ripoff and more as people are making all sorts of complaints about them. Rude as many people say as this is correct, rude rude people.

Don't waste your money, Scan Alert Hacker Safe total scam.

Fake hack attemts can be almost as bad as real ones. Even though they're not malicious requests, one of our clients set up ScanAlert and now gets HUNDREDS OF HITS EVERY SECOND.(And that's just the ones that have caused exceptions that were logged by code - who knows how many more aren't getting logged!) We're not talking about a quick daily scan, it's a constant process.

It's good to check for vulnerabilities, but the idea is to FIND problems, not BECOME the problem that makes the site run slowly! I understand running a security scan when a site is launched or when changes are made, or even weekly or daily at 2 AM if you're encountering problems, but this never-ending scan thing is ridiculous.

E-commerce manager for the same site for the last 12 years. Hacker-safe a/b testing is crap. Hacker-safe showed a 11% conversion increase on their charts, yet, taking apart the raw results provided by hacker-safe showed 0% increase which matched our own results. When questioned about the raw results, they stated that the raw data was incorrect?

The same holds true for PCI scan vendors. They collect their fee, use canned scans, NEVER validate the results, and do not detect things like username: test, password: test. WORTHLESS....Trustkeeper, SecurityMetrics, etc, etc, etc.
