Prevoty’s real-time application security capability now available for private clouds
Dramatically reduces costs associated with releasing secured code as part of a Secure SDLC (SSDLC)
LOS ANGELES, June 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Prevoty, Inc., a new security software company providing a radical real-time application security capability for enterprises, today announced support for private clouds for the company’s flagship Prevoty Enterprise suite.
While the majority of enterprises understand the value in using an SSDLC methodology to develop more secure applications, many struggle with the challenges of implementing the fixes for vulnerabilities identified during the testing process. Prevoty Enterprise allows developers without security knowledge to quickly and easily add the power of a sophisticated real-time security engine to applications, actively preventing the most prevalent and dangerous application security threats: cross-site scripting (XSS), SQL injection and cross-site request forgery (CSRF).
Prevoty Enterprise is typically deployed as a cloud-based service and Prevoty has been working with a number of large enterprises to develop a deployment model that now provides enterprises with the option of using their own private cloud.
“Information security is of paramount performance to Visa,” said Jamil Farshchi, Vice President, Global Information Security at Visa. “Prevoty’s solution offers us an important new application security capability as part of our secure SDLC.”
“There are many tools on the market to find application security vulnerabilities but very few to easily fix them, so buzz in the industry is that many organizations have identified more vulnerabilities than they’ve fixed,” said K. Krasnow Waterman, former Head of Intelligence Infrastructure for the FBI and Visiting Fellow at MIT. “Prevoty provides a clever mechanism to reduce real-world SSDLC headaches by providing app developers with a few lines of drop-in code for a fast retrofit; the infosec team can take the ball from there because the code invokes a smart security engine and a management console.”
“Developers and security teams are under constant pressure to release new applications and features on time, at the lowest cost and with no vulnerabilities. Most enterprises practice some form of secure SDLC but the cycle usually breaks because of too many false positives and the lack of knowledge to remediate identified vulnerabilities,” said Julien Bellanger, co-founder and CEO of Prevoty. “Prevoty’s mission is to eliminate the vulnerability component from the Secure SDLC so Enterprises can release and maintain secured applications timely and efficiently. Prevoty Enterprise is a huge weapon against would-be hackers.”
Prevoty will be demonstrating the Prevoty Enterprise suite live at IRCE in Chicago from June 10-13 http://www.irce.com, SC Congress in Toronto from June 17-18 http://congress.scmagazine.com and at the Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit in National Harbor, MD from June 23-26 http://www.gartner.com/technology/summits/na/security/.
Prevoty provides a radical new real-time application security capability, enabling applications to protect themselves. Unlike traditional security approaches that try to defend against hackers at the network layer, Prevoty works inside the application itself and the analysis engine is smart enough to actively prevent anything malicious from executing.
Prevoty is one of the most exciting new companies in the hot security market since, in addition to providing active defense and real-time application threat intelligence, the technology can dramatically reduce the time and costs associated with releasing secured code as part of a Secure SDLC (SSDLC).
Prevoty was founded in 2013 and is headquartered in Los Angeles, California. For more information on the company’s application security solutions, go to https://www.prevoty.com or follow @Prevoty on Twitter.
