If you’ve been following our blog there is a good chance that you, like us, believe that application security is one of the most important, and yet still under-served, components of a successful enterprise security strategy.
There are many important elements of a comprehensive implementation, but ultimately the goal of the various application security technologies and secure software development methodologies is the same: to end up with secure applications in production.
Detecting vulnerabilities in existing applications is critical. But doing so with accuracy, with no false positives and continuously at enterprise scale is a huge problem.
Some of the biggest challenges for enterprises come after vulnerabilities are identified. Finding appropriate and available resources to perform the remediation can be problematic, to say the least. And, for the larger enterprises we speak to, the challenge is multiplied manifold with backlogs of known vulnerabilities from legacy applications.
So that’s why today we’re very excited to be able to announce a new partnership with WhiteHat Security, who will begin selling Prevoty technology as part of a total solution to be offered to their customers.
WhiteHat’s unique approach of combining production-safe dynamic application security testing with the expertise of their Threat Research Center (TRC) provides an extremely high degree of accuracy in determining real vulnerabilities without false positives. By integrating with Prevoty monitoring, the vast majority of these vulnerabilities identified by WhiteHat Sentinel Dynamic will be marked as being able to be mitigated automatically by Prevoty RASP protection.
Craig Hinkley, CEO of WhiteHat Security, and I strongly believe that this provides a dramatic opportunity to improve the economics of enterprise application security. Enterprises can now accurately find and automatically mitigate application vulnerabilities, and have the intelligence and the time to fully remediate the applications that are most at risk.
The best in vulnerability detection. The best in runtime monitoring and protection. Integrated. You know it makes sense.
If you are attending Black Hat 2015 this year in Las Vegas, make sure you come see us to find out more. WhiteHat is at booth #1011, Prevoty at booth #966. I hope to see you there.
As always, we welcome your comments and questions.
