Automated web application security testing extends view of enterprise risk
Copenhagen, Denmark - August 1, 2017
Outpost24, a leading provider of Vulnerability Management solutions for commercial and government organizations, announced today the introduction of a new solution for web application security evaluation. With Outpost24 Appsec Scale, Outpost24 delivers a broader view of application security risk by combining with infrastructure vulnerability management to assist organizations concerned that cyber-attacks may disrupt their business. Using Appsec Scale in combination with other Outpost24 security components gives organizations of all sizes a more complete view of cyber security risk in one unified platform.
Organizations around the world continue to invest heavily in the web application technology segment to improve customer experience, simplify internal processes, and streamline supply chain relationships in a quest for “digital transformation.” Industry analysis has revealed that these types of applications are consistently the greatest source of data breaches. According to Verizon’s 2016 Data Breach Investigations Report, just 8% of reported breaches occurred in web applications, yet were the source of 40% of compromised data. Security teams continue to face technically savvy attacks amidst resource and skill shortfalls in security investment. Gartner has predicted that “by 2020, 60% of digital businesses will suffer major service failures due to IT security teams’ inability to manage risk.”
“Our customers tell us they get great value from our Application Security services and expertise in their business-critical applications, but they need more help,” said Bob Egner, CMO for Outpost24. “Our response is an efficient and affordable solution that builds on the same Appsec engine used in our SWAT (Secure Web Application Tactics) service, but enables customers to quickly onboard and evaluate applications at volume that exist throughout their organizations. These applications, while not classified as business critical, are essential to the ongoing operation of their business. Our new Appsec Scale solution gains from the improvements we make across our technology portfolio and the experience of our experts. We put all that knowledge into every component we offer."
