Security testing recognition for Fortify

Fortify : 13 February, 2009  (Company News)
Gartner recognises Fortify Software in the area of Static Application Security Testing
Fortify Software has been positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of Gartner's "Magic Quadrant for Static Application Security Testing (SAST)" written by analysts Joseph Feiman and Neil MacDonald. Published February 6, 2009, the report is the first application security-centric Magic Quadrant to be released by Gartner.

'Over the last few years we have seen significant growth in the software security industry. In my opinion, that this is the first year for Gartner to publish a Magic Quadrant around these technologies says a great deal about how businesses are increasingly turning to proactive, preventative analysis solutions to protect their software and applications," said John Jack, president and CEO of Fortify Software. "We believe our placement in the Leaders quadrant reflects our track record for innovating forward thinking technologies and our vision for the future of the market."

Gartner's Magic Quadrant positions vendors in a particular market segment based on their vision and ability to execute. 'Leaders' are performing well today, have a clear vision of market direction and are actively building competencies to sustain their leadership position in the market.'

According the report, "SAST for security vulnerabilities should be a mandatory requirement for all IT organizations that develop or procure applications. Although the market is relatively new and consolidating, enterprises must adopt SAST technologies and processes because the need is strategic."

Fortify has continued to grow its market leadership through the innovation of software security solutions that enable enterprises to reduce the business risk associated insecure software. Building on its successful independent technologies for static, dynamic and real-time analysis, Fortify announced its new flagship product, Fortify 360, in March 2008. While not included in the review for the 2008 SAST Magic Quadrant, Fortify 360 extends the companies track record for innovation by integrating the three levels of analysis and providing a dashboard for prioritized, collaborative remediation as well as a robust governance and reporting structure.

"With proven customer deployments at the largest worldwide enterprises, an effective global services team and an integrated product solution, Fortify continues to provide the technical and process-level expertise needed to implement an effective enterprise Software Security Assurance program,' noted Jack.
