Last November Gizmox, developer of the Visual WebGui application development environment, offered a $10,000 prize to any hacker who could break into the Visual WebGui website. Despite over 1700 attempts, no one was able to break in, leaving the prize unclaimed and the company's security software suite untarnished.
BOTTOM LINE: Gizmox's Visual WebGUI offers a simpler development and deployment for web-based applications that depend on a database. Developers worried that such a tool might invite hackers to steal information from this database should feel less anxiety out the security of applications they develop.
