Application Security : 27 May, 2010  (New Product)
Cigital Security Consultancy has taken AppDetectivePro from Application Security for the assessment of databases and for performing security audits
Application Security has announced that Cigital, a consulting firm specializing in software security and quality, has selected AppDetectivePro for database vulnerability assessment. Cigital has deployed AppDetectivePro's agentless database scanning technology in large database environments across multiple client engagements to assess potential vulnerabilities and review user entitlements.

Cigital has enabled some of the most well-known Fortune 500 organizations and government agencies to reduce their mission-critical software business risks. Together, the robust capabilities of AppDetectivePro and the security expertise of Cigital enable a comprehensive approach to critical security projects such as software reviews, best practices and automation for software testing, secure Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) implementation, portfolio risk analysis, and software security training.

"By making use of the world's largest database vulnerability knowledgebase, AppDetectivePro allows us to provide a comprehensive database risk assessment as part of our IT Security consulting engagements," said Aaron Ingram, Technical Manager, Cigital. "AppDetectivePro's, automated database scanning capabilities significantly reduce the time and resources required to complete an assessment and enable us to focus on helping our clients ensure their applications are secure and reliable, while also improving their software deployments."

With tens of thousands of licences shipped worldwide, AppDetectivePro is the de facto standard audit and assessment solution for database security, risk and compliance. AppDetectivePro discovers, examines, reports and proposes fixes for database security vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. Because it is agentless, AppDetectivePro can be rapidly implemented and provide immediate time to benefit. The solution provides auditors, IT advisors and internal audit teams with detailed compliance reports and a comprehensive view of an organization's database asset inventory, vulnerability profile, access controls and entitlements to sensitive information.

"In conducting enterprise-scale security assessments, Cigital is responsible for assuring the proper configuration and deployment of software designed to protect sensitive information," said Rob Chapdelaine, vice president, worldwide sales and distribution, Application Security, Inc. "AppDetectivePro increases reliability and improves the efficiency of assessments and audits of database entitlements and vulnerabilities for Cigital's global client engagements."
