Fortify on with WebInspect

Security is hard.  It takes dedicated professionals to get it right, and many organizations have unfortunately learned this the hard way. That's not saying developers or QA professionals can't learn application security, and be effective at it. It is saying that it's almost impossible to do everything you have to do to be successful at application security when it's your secondary area of focus. There's just too much to learn. Be assured, hackers live and breathe security, and so do the best application security professionals.


This is one of the main reasons there has been explosive growth in the Software as a Service (SaaS) security approach. For a lot of organizations who don't have the resources to do it right, it offers the most effective and beneficial solution. If you can't do it in-house, why not hire the best to do it for you?


While on that topic, there's a new SaaS security offering poised to take it to the next level. Fortify on Demand now combines the two best complimentary technologies on the market...Fortify's static code analysis and WebInspect's dynamic run-time provide one comprehensive solution no other security services company can match. We've already seen what benefits the "hybrid analysis" combination of static and dynamic application testing can bring to an organization.  But when that's also combined with in-depth application security expertise? Watch out.
