WALTHAM, Mass. -- Ounce Labs, the industry leader in software risk management, today announced the formation of an Advanced Research Team (ART), a team of leading security experts dedicated to raising the awareness of software security and the development of best practices for incorporating application security into the software development lifecycle. The team will conduct research and develop practical methods that organizations can use to analyze and eliminate software security vulnerabilities and strengthen enterprise security.
Enterprises today depend on software applications to run their businesses, but many applications contain vulnerabilities that can be exploited by hackers to gain access to private and sensitive information. With application-level attacks on the rise, organizations are looking for expert advice and guidance on how to proactively identify and eliminate existing security vulnerabilities and prevent future vulnerabilities from being created.
"Understanding and managing risk in application software takes deliberate effort. We have brought together industry-leading software security experts to play a key role in increasing the security of today and tomorrow's business critical software," said Hugh Scandrett, CEO of Ounce Labs. "The Advanced Research Team is focused on helping organizations implement best practices, catch common mistakes, and make the security process more efficient and consistent."
