ATLANTA -- S.P.I. Dynamics, Inc. (www.spidynamics.com), the leading provider of web application security software and services, announced today the companys latest version of the Assessment Management Platform® (AMP), version 3, that includes a web-based interface for multi-user lifecycle collaboration and control of application security risk throughout the enterprise in a consolidated global view. AMP delivers a distributed, scalable, platform used by information security professionals, CISOs, CIOs, line-of-business managers, compliance officers, developers, and QA professionals to assess and manage application security risk.
Today, security professionals in all industries are dealing with an ever-increasing and overwhelming number of applications, vulnerabilities and technical experts around the world. They must identify critical applications, maintain a holistic risk management view, and give numerous stakeholders visibility into the state of application security across the enterprise. While doing this, they must scale their assessment processes across the enterprise and throughout the lifecycle to developers, quality assurance teams, other security professionals, and even line of business managers who own the applications. Organizations are striving for proactive application security programs that find vulnerabilities early in the lifecycle, to avoid excessive costs associated with fixing defects in production applications. To do so, all of the stakeholders and participants require easy access to robust application security testing tools that do not require security expertise.
AMP is the first and only assessment platform to fully address the emerging complexities of todays web application security programs. AMP sets the standard for advanced global security programs that enable a variety of stakeholders and participants from around the world to get the information they need about application security and participate in the assessment and remediation process, while enabling security professionals to maintain centralized control. said Caleb Sima, co-founder and CTO, SPI Dynamics. Another factor driving the increased complexities in the security programs is that the web applications are built on new technologies. AMP 3 is powered by SPI Dynamics new Phoenix product architecture, which is the first and only technology able to analyze complex Web 2.0 applications to reveal previously undetectable vulnerabilities.
