ATLANTA -- S.P.I. Dynamics, Inc. (www.spidynamics.com), the leading provider of web application security software and services, announced today the companys Phoenix architecture the first and only technology able to analyze complex Web 2.0 applications to reveal previously undetectable vulnerabilities.
Todays web applications are complex and dynamic; combining client and server side processing with Web 2.0 technologies such as AJAX, SOAP, SOA and Flash. Traditional application scanners fail to discover security vulnerabilities exposed by use of these new technologies, resulting in high false negatives rates. The new web requires a fundamental revolution in assessment technology.
Anyone developing web applications today should incorporate new Web 2.0 technologies to improve user experience and satisfy customer requirements, said Caleb Sima, co-founder and CTO, SPI Dynamics. But implementation of these new technologies is a double-edged sword, creating enormous new attack surfaces that leave web applications more exposed than ever before. Leveraging our Phoenix architecture, SPI Dynamics is the first company to provide an automated web application security tool that can discover vulnerabilities in todays web applications. We are pleased to provide another leading innovation
