Beyond Security Intros 2.0

Beyond Security announced the latest version of its security analysis solution, beSTORM 2.0

IRVINE, Calif. -- Beyond Security, a leading provider of security assessment technologies, today announced the latest version of its security analysis solution, beSTORM 2.0. The new version introduces the 80/20 rule for ‘smart’ blackbox testing, which enables faster testing by focusing first on known vulnerability patterns before searching for unknown problems. More precisely, the 80/20 rule allows for beSTORM to first test a small group of known scenarios that trigger the majority of the security holes in products. Beyond Security is the first to offer ‘smart’ blackbox testing, which requires access to a deep repository of known vulnerabilities.

Targeted to software engineers and developers of IP-based devices and embedded systems, the new feature enables these individuals to leverage the value of fuzzing by making it more practical to expedite testing for security holes. The 80/20 feature opens fuzzing to legions of developers who would otherwise forgo such testing as prolonged test periods are not practical due to time-to-market and cost considerations.

“This new feature is a direct result of interaction with customers and developers that have expressed a need for effective testing in less time,” said Aviram Jenik, Beyond Security CEO. “Our 80/20 methodology makes smart fuzzing possible for products that would normally take too long to test. Our tests have shown that vulnerability testing can be reduced from weeks or days to just hours, by focusing on attack vectors that are known to be problematic.”
