SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- WhiteHat Security, the leading provider of website risk management solutions, today announced the WhiteHat Sentinel PCI bundle. Combining industry-leading WhiteHat Sentinel vulnerability management solutions, customized reporting and website security training, the new offering delivers all the components necessary for achieving and maintaining application security compliance as specified in the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) sections 6 and 11.

PCI compliance for application security has gained significant attention over the last year. Both internal and public-facing websites are covered under different sections of the PCI DSS and as new sections appear, companies need to ensure that their current website risk management program helps them meet the necessary requirements. With its in-house PCI experts and innovative training curriculum, WhiteHat can offer its customers everything they need to protect their websites and remain compliant.

The WhiteHat Sentinel PCI Bundle includes the following:

-- WhiteHat Sentinel Premium Edition (PE) or Standard Edition (SE) -- WhiteHat Sentinel PE and SE exceed requirements 6.3.7b, 6.5 and 6.6 of the PCI DSS by providing ongoing, verified vulnerability assessments for both internal and public websites. In addition, Sentinel PE satisfies requirement 11.3.2 which mandates application-layer penetration testing. -- Customized PCI Reporting -- The Sentinel PCI report delivers both an overview and an in-depth look into the PCI compliance of each website under management. For each vulnerability class, the report details how the vulnerability is exploited, gives protection advice and lists links to reference information. Open vulnerabilities of each class on the customer's website are also listed. -- "Introduction to Web Application Security" training -- This course provides an overview of the fundamental principles of website security and meets PCI DSS requirement 6.5b which covers developer training on secure coding techniques. All participants will receive a certificate confirming course completion.

"Regardless of industry or size, all companies are faced with the seemingly overwhelming task of protecting their websites and meeting various compliance requirements such as PCI," said Stephanie Fohn, chief executive officer, WhiteHat Security. "We are offering the PCI Bundle to help make the whole process more palatable and easier to manage. Now customers have a single source for comprehensive, cost-effective PCI application security compliance that will also improve overall website security and developer performance."

WhiteHat Sentinel allows organizations to conduct the most complete vulnerability assessments -- as often as they'd like or every time a website is changed -- ensuring that all existing and new vulnerabilities are identified and assessed. WhiteHat's patented methodology exceeds the strictest industry standards as established by the PCI Security Standards Council, founded by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc.

The WhiteHat Sentinel product family is composed of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) website security solutions that deliver the visibility, flexibility and manageability that organizations need to take control of website security and prevent Web attacks. WhiteHat Sentinel was built from the ground up to assess the largest and most complex websites in the world on an ongoing basis, and today executes rigorous and ongoing security testing on thousands of the world's leading websites, including many Fortune 500 companies.

The PCI Bundle is available immediately and offers a 25 percent discount off the list price of the "Introduction to Web Application Security" class. The new customized PCI report is currently available to all Sentinel customers at no additional charge.
