HP has ‘Fortified’ application security

As you can imagine, we're very excited in the Application Security Center about HP's upcoming acquisition of Fortify. What's great about this is that our strengths are exceedingly complimentary (as static and dynamic analysis should be...it's the yin and yang of application security, and will allow us to provide customers with a complete security package that addresses the entire application development lifecycle). And since we've already worked with Fortify on enhancing and integrating application security solutions, we know exactly the value they bring to the table. Granted, I might be biased (totally). But, it's not just me. Here's what some analysts have said this week:

 

“I think it is a great move for HP.  It is a perfect fit for their tools given the integration they have done with Fortify over the past few months. Developing secure applications will always be important and too many app dev organizations don’t know where to begin.”

~ Mike Gualtieri, Forrester Research

 

“When big companies like IBM and HP make acquisitions like this they're going to make these technologies easier to consume for more folks. There is a small, but growing market demand for more secure development."

~Josh Corman, The 451 Group
