AppDetectivePro Database Scanning Application Employed At Telos Corporation

Application Security : 03 June, 2010  (Application Story)
Federal Government contractor chooses AppDetectivePro from Application Security to meet its vulnerability assessment, access control and compliance on databases
Application Security has announced that Telos Corporation is using AppDetectivePro as its product of choice for database assessments. AppDetectivePro's agentless database scanning technology helps Telos meet their requirements for database discovery, vulnerability assessment, user access controls and compliance reporting for Federal government consulting engagements.

"Our government consulting projects demand automated capabilities when assessing database systems," said Rinaldi Pisani, vice president of information assurance at Telos Corporation, which employs over 150 cybersecurity consultants and performs hundreds of certification and accreditations (C&A) each year. "AppDetectivePro allows us to significantly reduce our resource requirements and increase assessment efficiency. We use results from the product in our Xacta IA Manager tool to fulfill regulatory requirements. With a comprehensive database assessment, we're able to help improve the compliance posture of our government customers by mapping results to regulations like the DISA-STIGs (Security Technical Implementation Guides issued by the Defence Information Systems Agency)."

With tens of thousands of licences shipped worldwide, AppDetectivePro is the de facto solution for database security, risk and compliance in the Federal government. AppDetectivePro discovers, examines, reports and proposes fixes for database security vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. Because it is agentless, AppDetectivePro can be rapidly implemented while providing customers with an immediate return on investment.

Application Security has partnered with Telos on multiple projects, including the US Air Force's Application Software Assurance Centre of Excellence, (ASACoE), a best-in-class security model designed to implement application security and software assurance best practices. The deployment was featured by IDC in the report: ProveIT Case Study for US Air Force Software Assurance Centre of Excellence.

"Telos Corporation needed a best-in-class solution that helped its highly skilled information security consultants automate the database audit process," said Rob Chapdelaine, vice president of worldwide sales and distribution, Application Security, Inc. "AppDetectivePro enables security and compliance teams to streamline audit processes and ensure continuous compliance across sophisticated database environments."
