WhiteHat Partners With Aspect For Web App Security

On-demand assessment capabilities of WhiteHat Sentinel enable Aspect Security consultants to manage vulnerability analysis across a large portfolio of Web applications

SANTA CLARA, Calif. and COLUMBIA, MD " January 25, 2010 " WhiteHat Security, the leading provider of website risk management solutions, today announced its partnership with Aspect Security, an application security consulting company that enables companies to build, verify and manage secure applications. The combination of Aspect Security's service offerings and WhiteHat Sentinel's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) website vulnerability management platform provides organizations the solution they need to build more secure Web applications and create a sound risk management program.

This relationship underscores the need to address an enterprise's application portfolio with a continuous, comprehensive risk program versus a series of one-off assessments. The on-demand assessment capabilities of WhiteHat Sentinel enable Aspect Security consultants to manage vulnerability analysis across a large portfolio of Web applications while developing a custom program to eliminate flaws from being introduced early in the software development lifecycle.

WhiteHat Sentinel's proven, proprietary methodology and highly accurate assessment results deliver the actionable information that developers need to effectively repair software code and lower the application development cost structure. With its technology platform providing a scalable foundation, WhiteHat Sentinel complements Aspect's consulting services, including code review and training, by providing detailed and verified application vulnerability information that links real-world operations to development activities.

Together, Aspect's services and WhiteHat Sentinel enable quick feedback to developers who introduce security vulnerabilities. Aspect will work with developers and ensure that they have everything they need to remediate problems and prevent them from recurring. Sentinel's continuous testing combined with Aspect's other metrics ensures visibility into the state of application security across the portfolio.

"WhiteHat's scalable vulnerability assessment platform fills a key need in any application security program because it provides continuous and concrete proof of the risk and the need to improve," said Jeff Williams, chief executive officer, Aspect Security. "WhiteHat Sentinel provides the infrastructure to pinpoint, prioritize and retest vulnerabilities, making it easier and faster for Aspect to build a business case for our customers. Customers quickly gain a better understanding of their application security posture and the combination of services that will improve it."

Built from the ground up to assess the largest, most complex sites on the Web, WhiteHat Sentinel delivers the visibility, flexibility and manageability organizations need to attain complete website risk management and prevent Web attacks. With more than 1,500 websites under management, WhiteHat executes rigorous and ongoing security testing of the world's leading websites, including many Fortune 500 companies.

"We are pleased to add a top-tier consulting firm like Aspect to our partner ecosystem, and look forward to working together to advance website security at customer organizations," said Jeremiah Grossman, founder and chief technology officer, WhiteHat Security. "Combining Aspect's respected code review, testing capabilities and application security training courses with our enterprise-class website vulnerability management solution allows companies to reduce the risk of attacks and successfully measure the outcome of their efforts in website security."

The WhiteHat Security partner program gives organizations a turnkey solution to offer world-class website security solutions, grow revenue and increase the value of their existing service offerings.
