Watchfire Adds Vulnerability Tester

Watchfire introduced the industry's most flexible web application security solution, Watchfire AppScan 7.5

WALTHAM, Mass. -- Continuing its lead in web application vulnerability testing, Watchfire today introduced the industry’s most flexible web application security solution, Watchfire® AppScan® 7.5. AppScan7.5 introduces the AppScan eXtensions Framework™ (AXF) to harness the power of Watchfire’s patented application scanning engine. Coupled with Pyscan, a new AppScan Python®-Scripting based web application security testing platform, security professionals can rely on AppScan 7.5 to customize, extend and create their own custom testing solution that uses the core technology of AppScan to accomplish specific security-related tasks. In addition, the company also launched the AppScan eXtensions open source community that lets security professionals benefit from the expertise of all AppScan users.

Today’s changing market requires flexibility. AppScan 7.5 is the first product in the industry to make the technical leap from just a scanning tool to a security testing platform, cementing web application security to all parties involved in application creation. AppScan can now address application security vulnerabilities for users across the entire Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC), from non-security professionals to the most serious power user. Coupled with today’s introduction of AppScan QA, (http://www.watchfire.com/news/releases/04-16-07b.aspx) designed to simplify security testing for development and quality assurance teams; Watchfire completes its vision of integrating web application security throughout the SDLC.

”Jyske Bank A/S insists on secure web applications that protect the confidential information and assets of our customers,” said Dennis Panduro Rand, IT-security & Compliance, Jyske Bank A/S. “AppScan is currently one of the best solutions on the market to address our large and very complex web applications. It has become an integrated component of our implementation process for developers. We use AppScan to verify the security of our applications and are excited about the flexibility and the new and powerful advancements in AppScan 7.5 as our security testing requirements continue to grow. The new AppScan eXtensions Framework is a significant distinction for AppScan and represents an important step forward, further building on the overall productivity and capability. This gives us the strength to develop tools and scripts that directly connect with the AppScan SDK.”
