Fortify Becomes Member of Cloud Security Alliance

Fortify : 13 May, 2010  (Company News)
IT Security assurance supplier pledges support to the development of secure cloud architectures by joining the Cloud Security Alliance
Fortify Software has announced at the Private/Public Cloud Summit that it has joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) as a corporate sponsor member. Fortify is joining the CSA to support its cloud security initiatives and to help establish and promote best practices for software security in cloud computing. Fortify will also provide its input on software security in the next release of the group's Security Guidance for Critical Areas of Focus in Cloud Computing.

"Security is almost universally the number one concern of companies moving into Cloud Computing environments; however, most organizations have not yet considered the implications of using insecure software in the cloud," said Jim Reavis, Executive Director of the Cloud Security Alliance. "The Cloud Security Alliance welcomes Fortify's leadership and expertise to help us establish set guidelines and protocols for organizations to embrace software security in the cloud."

Fortify Software is the dominant software security assurance vendor in terms of revenue, customer installations and breadth of solutions. Positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of Gartner, Inc.'s first and only application security-centric Magic Quadrant ("Magic Quadrant for Static Application Security Testing (SAST)", published February 2009), Fortify brings a wealth of customer deployment experience in real-world, heterogeneous environments, helping customers assess and mitigate the risk posed by application vulnerabilities.

"Software security should be the number one concern of any organization interested in the cloud because software is the primary target of threats in any environment," said Brian Chess, PhD, Founder and Chief Scientist at Fortify Software. "If businesses get software security right, they will unlock the true benefits of the cloud, economic and otherwise. We look forward to contributing our software security expertise to the Cloud Security Alliance, and specifically our understanding of how businesses should secure their applications for the cloud environment. In turn, we're very excited about the opportunity to learn more from other participating industry leaders about security for the cloud, and how to educate and guide businesses towards smart cloud implementations."
