nCircle Announces Increased Vulnerability Coverage for Critical Web Application Vulnerabilities

July 27, 2009

SAN FRANCISCO, July 27 /PRNewswire/ — nCircle, the leader in security and compliance auditing solutions, today announced greatly increased vulnerability coverage in its WebApp360 Web application scanning product. With coverage in 7 of 10 OWASP Top 10 categories, WebApp360 is a critical tool for securing deployed Web applications and their underlying operating systems and adjacent applications. The OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) Top 10 is a list of the top 10 most critical vulnerability categories and is recognized as the baseline standard for Web application scanners.

One of the areas of greatest security risk to enterprises are Web applications such as online banking, e-commerce systems and those handling electronic healthcare information. These systems are the main point of customer interaction, and compromise can provide attackers with access to sensitive customer and corporate data. WebApp360 provides automated coverage for the most dangerous Web application flaws, ensuring that enterprises can discover and remediate these flaws before the systems are compromised.

A component of nCircle’s Suite360 automated security and compliance auditing suite, WebApp360 identifies vulnerabilities in production Web applications – both commercial and custom – and their underlying operating systems and adjacent applications, delivering a complete view of risk. Web applications have a rapid rate of change from upgrades, patches or configuration changes, any of which may cause or uncover vulnerabilities. WebApp360 utilizes continuous scanning to identify Web application vulnerabilities in the constantly changing enterprise environment. Additionally, WebApp360 is the only solution that measures not only the risks associated with the Web application itself but also the operating system on which it is installed and any adjacent applications such as the Web server. This approach is the only way to deliver complete vulnerability management and a comprehensive and ongoing profile of Web application risk.

“Web applications are the front end and customer interaction points for most enterprises that do business on the Internet,” said Tim Keanini, CTO, nCircle. “WebApp360 coverage of 7 of the OWASP Top 10 categories enables enterprises to proactively secure their deployed Web applications as well as their underlying operating system and adjacent applications.”

WebApp360 and its expanded OWASP Top 10 vulnerability coverage are available now.
