IBM security solutions help you design, deliver, and manage smarter software and services faster, in a more secure and cost-efficient manner. Security must be intrinsic to an organization’s business processes, product development and daily operations. Security must be factored into the initial design, and not bolted on after the fact. Seamlessly embedding automated security early into the development lifecycle is more important than ever to lower costs and increase protection.
We are announcing a new initiative to help our customers more effectively design security into their products and services early in the lifecycle, in a way which is resilient to change. This solution includes a new security engineering framework, source code security testing tools, source code scanning assessment services, and new highly scalable identity and access management capabilities.
New software identifies security vulnerabilities earlier in the software development lifecycle
According to a 2009 IBM X-Force report:
Building on the momentum of its recent acquisition of security vendor Ounce Labs, IBM is further strengthening its security portfolio by introducing IBM Rational AppScan® Source Edition, a new addition to its web application security and compliance portfolio. Rational AppScan is the only product that offers both static and dynamic analysis testing in one solution.
A secure by design approach enables you to:
“Software security has become a priority as hackers are increasingly targeting Web-based applications as their preferred route of attack. Embedding automated security scanning into software delivery is more important than ever to lower costs and increase protection. We are confident that the new version of AppScan Source Edition will provide considerable value to our customers."
