Accuvant And WhiteHat Security Forge Strategic Alliance

The new partnership leverages WhiteHat Security's SaaS-based website vulnerability management platform and Accuvant LABS' application security services

DENVER and SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Accuvant, the only research-driven information security partner delivering alignment, clarity and confidence to enterprise clients, announced today that it has formed a strategic partnership with WhiteHat Security, the leading provider of website risk management solutions, to better serve enterprise clients with application security needs.

The new partnership leverages WhiteHat Security's SaaS-based website vulnerability management platform, WhiteHat Sentinel, and Accuvant LABS' world-class application security services. Together, the result is a comprehensive solution that enables clients to identify, prioritize and remediate web application vulnerabilities in a more diligent, efficient and cost-effective manner.

During client engagements, Accuvant LABS provides a deep-dive analysis of mission-critical applications, develops security-based policies and procedures, and trains personnel on how to test, analyze and proactively mitigate vulnerabilities in application code. WhiteHat complements these services by providing ongoing, comprehensive website vulnerability management. WhiteHat Sentinel's unparalleled accuracy and actionable data increases visibility into the enterprise's security posture, simplifies the remediation process, and enables real-time mitigation.

"Managing application security risk is one of the most prevalent issues facing today's organizations," said David Bonvillain, vice president for Accuvant LABS. "Given the widespread use of web applications, a more scalable and proactive approach to vulnerability identification and mitigation becomes necessary. Our new partnership with WhiteHat Security allows Accuvant LABS to broaden its core application testing service offerings to include the scalable, affordable and accurate testing capabilities that Sentinel provides. As a result, we are better equipped to jointly provide an appropriate testing solution regardless of application risk profile, criticality or desired testing approach, from ongoing black-box testing to binary."

"Our partnership with Accuvant represents our commitment to provide our customers with access to the best solutions possible to build meaningful, sustainable application security programs and stay ahead of threats," stated Jeremiah Grossman, founder and chief technology officer for WhiteHat Security. "Accuvant LABS has proven its ability to deliver exceptional consulting services. Together, we are strongly positioned to help organizations of all sizes counter the full spectrum of application security challenges."

"As a long-time client of Accuvant LABS and WhiteHat, I'm pleased to see these two organizations partner to provide enterprise clients with a scalable application testing solution at a reasonable price point," said a manager of information security and risk management with a Fortune 500 healthcare company. "Proactive testing and ongoing understanding of any potential vulnerability within a web application is of paramount importance within our environments, not only from a compliance standpoint, but from a security perspective. I believe the combined solution from Accuvant and WhiteHat will be attractive to any client with ongoing web application testing needs."
