Fortify Software to Collaborate With HP on Application Lifecycle Security Solutions to Reduce Business Risk
Fortify 360′s Static Application Security Testing (SAST) technology will be integrated with HP Application Security Center and HP Quality Center software solutions to give enterprise users increased visibility into application security across development, quality assurance and security operations.
“The combination of these technologies brings together development’s security efforts with software quality and dynamic application security testing,” said
Recent studies show that data breaches and cyber attacks on the application layer continue to rise at an alarming rate, and the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) notes that 92% of exploitable vulnerabilities are found in the software. As businesses strive to mitigate the risks posed by vulnerable software, mandates from organizations such as the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standard Council make it imperative to address security through all phases of the software life cycle.
“Enterprise businesses can reduce security risks inherent in their software by bringing together their development, quality assurance and security operations groups,” said
Fortify and HP will first focus on integrating Fortify 360 static application security testing results into HP Assessment Management Platform (AMP) to give customers a real-time dashboard view of application security scanning efforts enterprise-wide. The collaboration also includes integration of Fortify 360 source code security results with HP Quality Center’s defect management system. This will enable customers to seamlessly submit security issues detected by Fortify 360 source code analysis into HP Quality Center’s defect management system so they can be managed like other software defects.
