nCircle Releases Web App Assessment Tool

nCircle unveils WebApp360, the industry's first enterprise-class Web application scanning solution suitable for production environments

SAN FRANCISCO -- nCircle, the leading provider of agentless security risk and compliance management solutions, today announced WebApp360, a new product designed to detect vulnerabilities in web applications. WebApp360 extends nCircle’s market-leading security risk management platform, IP360, to include assessment of enterprise web applications, offering the industry’s most comprehensive view of IT security risk. Together, WebApp360 and IP360 offer customers an unprecedented, prioritized assessment of IT security risk, from web applications to the underlying IT infrastructure supporting them. Designed to scale to even the world’s largest production enterprise networks, WebApp360 helps enterprises identify and reduce their security risk and ensure compliance at the lowest possible cost.

The number of web applications in enterprises is rapidly growing as more and more business is conducted online, increasing the risk to organizations and the need for security assessments of these applications. However, enterprises searching for a security solution often find that vulnerability management solutions don’t assess web applications, and web application security solutions don’t assess the IT infrastructure they run on. As a result, security professionals are faced with disconnected and incomplete views of enterprise risk. WebApp360 fills the gap, offering continuous assessment of web applications and their underlying systems. With WebApp360, enterprises can automatically and continuously detect critical security risks such as SQL Injection and Cross Site Scripting vulnerabilities on critical systems even in production environments

WebApp360 is available as an integrated add-on module to nCircle’s security risk management platform, IP360, and benefits from IP360’s market-leading scalability, manageability, appliance-based architecture and vulnerability coverage. WebApp360 utilizes IP360’s extensive reporting capabilities, providing a comprehensive view of not only vulnerabilities found in web applications, but also those in the supporting web servers, operating systems, services, protocols, network infrastructure and adjacent software systems. Without such comprehensive analysis of IT risk, enterprises only see individual silos of risk, often leaving serious problems undiscovered. “nCircle’s new WebApp360 closes major gap in risk management that hasn’t been well addressed by the security industry, and one that our customers have shown considerable interest in – assessing the security of web applications within the full context of production IT environments,” said Tim Keanini, nCircle’s Chief Technology Officer. “WebApp360 enables continuous and accurate assessment of production web applications, helping enterprises reduce risk and improve compliance.”
