HP Announces Industry’s First Real-time Application Security Analysis Solution

Delivering application security intelligence to advance risk management

ASIA PACIFIC, April 14, 2011 – HP todayannounced the first application security analysis solution thatdiscovers the root cause of software vulnerabilities by observingattacks in real-time.

HPFortify Real-Time Hybrid Analysis, used in concert with the new HP Fortify 360 v3.0andHP Application Security Center9.0, helpsorganizations proactively reduce business risk and protect againstmalicious software attacks.

Arecent study of more than 150 organizations conductedby Aberdeen Group(1) found that the average total costto remediate a single application security incident isapproximately $300,000. As security incidents can happen at anypoint in the application life cycle, modernization initiatives canprove especially costly if they are not proactively secured fromdevelopment to operations.

Enterprises using the new HP offerings can deliver the applicationsecurity intelligence required to effectively manage risk acrossthe life cycle. By taking a pragmatic approach that securesapplications from development to operations, organizations candevelop a scalable, repeatable and cost-effective securityassurance program to further reduce risk.

"Thetraditional approach of single-point security solutions helpssecure parts of a business, but limits enterprises from makinginformed decisions," said Joseph Feiman, vice president and fellow,Gartner. "To make optimal security and risk management decisions,enterprises must move from technological security silos toenterprise security intelligence. This can be achieved through theinteraction of different technologies as well as contextualanalyses of integrated security and business information."

Basedon advanced application security technologies, the new solutionshelp clients: 

  • Immediately respond to business threats: With new technologythat correlates code-level analysis, HP Fortify Real-Time HybridAnalysis allows organizations to observe security attacks as theyhappen to identify the point of vulnerability in code; 

  • Manage enterprise risk fromapplications: Proactively protect against threat risks and addresscompliance requirements through HP Fortify 360 Server, whichdetects security vulnerabilities across architectural layers andprioritizes remediation;

  • Accelerate innovation with the latest technologies: Throughexpanded automation and web services testing capabilities,HP WebInspect 9.0andHP Assessment Management Platform9.0increase securitytesting coverage of complex Web 2.0applications;

  • Enhance productivity through greater collaboration: With newfeatures that centralize vulnerability and remediation issues, HPWebInspect 9.0 reduces the time to recreate and fix securitydefects, allowing developers, quality assurance and security teamsto cover more applications with fewer resources; and

  • Protect the integrity of the enterprise: Providing newprogramming language support and integrations with HP WebInspect,HP Fortify OnDemandtests thesecurity of all applications quickly, accurately andaffordably.

"WebApplications bring opportunities for businesses, and unfortunately,also for hackers," said Anthony McMahon, vice president, Software,HP Asia Pacific and Japan. "With new advanced real-time securitytechnologies to help clients thwart attacks, HP is delivering theapplication security intelligence needed for risk-freeinnovation."
