WhiteHat Security Partners with NowSecure For Mobile Application Security Testing Solution

WhiteHat Sentinel Mobile Express features automated static and dynamic testing to quickly detect and verify mobile application vulnerabilities

Santa Clara, Calif., October 11, 2016 – WhiteHat Security, the only application security provider that combines the best of technology and human intelligence, today announced WhiteHat Sentinel Mobile Express™, a new addition to its mobile application security offerings powered by technology from mobile security solution pioneer NowSecure. The solution provides fast and accurate mobile application security testing using a combination of NowSecure’s fully-automated static, dynamic, and interactive assessment technology and augmented by expert verification and analysis by WhiteHat Security’s Threat Research Center team. The new solution supports iOS and Android applications, with detailed views and reporting integrated into the WhiteHat Sentinel platform.

The proliferation of mobile application development is apparent today, and enterprises are taking steps to accelerate its current pace of growth. According to Gartner, “By 2020, more than 75% of enterprises will have adopted at least one mobile app development platform to accelerate their digital business transformation strategy, up from approximately 33% in 2015.” With the expansion of the mobile application development market comes a rise in the use of mobile applications, and with that, the increased risk that vulnerable applications pose to organizations.

Created in response to the demand for mobile application security testing solutions that address common pain points of the modern software development lifecycle (SDLC), Sentinel Mobile Express:

        Speeds up time-to-detection with automated static and dynamic (SAST and DAST) app security testing

       Accommodates agile and DevOps build-and-deploy cycles

        Tests the actual builds by installing and testing mobile apps on physical Android and iOS devices in the cloud, not emulators

        Provides detailed descriptions of vulnerabilities and offers remediation guidance

Sentinel Mobile Express is integrated with the WhiteHat Sentinel Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform, which enables businesses to quickly deploy a scalable application security program across the entire software development lifecycle.

“WhiteHat Security’s authority in the application security world is unquestionable,” said Andrew Hoog, CEO and Co-Founder, NowSecure. “We share the belief that security starts with security-aware development, and our mission is to provide fast and accurate security testing that integrates with the agile processes that mobile development teams rely on. It’s an honor to be partnering with WhiteHat Security, and to combine our respective areas of expertise to deliver an industry-leading solution for mobile application security.”

“There’s a real need in the market for a fast and effective mobile application security solution, a need that just hasn’t been met by any of the application security players to date,” said Craig Hinkley, CEO of WhiteHat Security. “The powerful combination of WhiteHat and NowSecure makes it possible for organizations to apply the same security rigor to their mobile apps that they’ve been able to bring to their enterprise apps for years. The speed at which people and enterprises have adopted and are relying on mobile devices to do business is dizzying, and having a best-of-breed solution for securing the mobile apps at the heart of that business is essential. Sentinel Mobile Express is the right solution at the right time in the evolution of mobile.”

Both WhiteHat Security and NowSecure are participating in AppSec USA 2016 taking place this week in Washington, DC from October 11-14.  Learn more about Sentinel Mobile Express by visiting WhiteHat in booth G6, and NowSecure in booth G3.
