Core Security/NT OBJECTives Spider Integrated Solution

Automated solution helps ensure that enterprise security professionals quickly identify application vulnerabilities

Boston, MA and Irvine, CA –September 6, 2011 – CORE Security®, a leading provider of predictive security intelligence solutions, and NT OBJECTives (NTO) a provider of automated, comprehensive and accurate web application security software and services today announced the immediate availability of a bundled solution combining CORE Insight with NTOSpider to deliver richer predictive security intelligence. The new, integrated and automated solution helps ensure that enterprise security professionals quickly identify application vulnerabilities and understand the precise business and operational risks posed by the vulnerabilities.

Today’s enterprises have hundreds or even thousands of web applications that are mission critical to the modern day business environment, continuously storing and accessing sensitive customer, financial and corporate information. Unfortunately, security measures have not kept pace with malicious attackers and, as a result, web applications are more vulnerable than ever before. CORE Insight with NTOSpider is designed to give security teams the tools and intelligence to make progress against their backlog of vulnerabilities and help them prioritize and address risk by identifying the most critical vulnerabilities.

“CORE Insight includes application scanning from NTO and combines it with simulation, reporting and vulnerability remediation, allowing for the delivery of actionable security intelligence in a single platform,” said Charles Kolodgy, research vice president, Secure Products, IDC. “This combination helps to alleviate the longstanding problem of too much disparate data to process and analyze. The interconnection of capabilities via automation will allow resource-constrained organizations to focus on other critical areas of security.”

As of means of identifying and managing potential threats, security teams use application security scanners such as NTOSpider to identify the application vulnerabilities. Once identified, they can use CORE’s Insight threat simulation and real-world threat replication technology to model out and test how an attacker would exploit these vulnerabilities pivoting off each internal asset, such as databases and servers, to find which can lead to a breach of critical data. But, it takes time to feed the vulnerabilities into CORE Insight, until now.

Through the automation of vulnerability identification, validation and risk prioritization, companies are now able to efficiently monitor their application security posture, allowing security teams to spend their time remediating the most material risks and threats to the business.

How the Combined Solution Works CORE Insight validates and prioritizes application vulnerabilities discovered by NTOSpider in the following way:

1. Vulnerability identification: NTOSpider discovers a comprehensive list of application security vulnerabilities

2. Vulnerability analysis: CORE Insight consumes that input and combines it with your network scan results to validate which critical assets can be breached by pivoting and traversing off of each asset to find the exploit. These multi-vector attacks are an increasingly popular technique used by attackers today.

3. Business risk summary: The combined result articulates the specific potential impact of a breach from a discovered vulnerability.
