The company's operations are currently centered on the development of software relating to the assessment of web servers and web applications.

In 2003, Syhunt released a web application security assessment software known as Sandcat, which focuses on Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) and the SANS Institute vulnerabilities. Syhunt has also produced a number of security software utilities, including worm removal tools (during worm outbreaks), server hardening and log analysis tools.
