CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CBTS announces a new Application Security offering that addresses some of the most pressing security challenges corporations face today.
Analyst reports (Verizon 2017 Data Breach Investigation Report) show that application layer breaches are currently happening twice as often as all other types of attacks.
Many software developers lack expertise on application security and don’t understand the potential risks to their organizations when software code is released without proper security testing.
With this new security offering, CBTS has partnered with Micro Focus to help organizations secure their applications by providing the necessary technical capabilities and resources.
“It is important to ensure every application that runs a business is secured and protected. This includes outsourced software, commercial off-the-shelf software, and open source code that is incorporated into our customers’ applications. If not properly tested, it can increase the risk to our clients’ businesses,” said Steve Lankard, Vice President and Principal, Infrastructure Solutions for CBTS.
“Security is of paramount importance to our clients and their customers, which is why we’re excited to offer an industry leading solution with Micro Focus that helps improve application security quickly and easily.”
The CBTS Application Security solution integrates Micro Focus Fortify Application Security technology to help identify security vulnerabilities in source code early in software development. The solution also provides a comprehensive dynamic analysis of complex web applications and services in real time, while providing valuable insight from a centralized management console and repository. CBTS will offer the solution in either an on site or as-a-service model, and provide the necessary resources to train the client’s IT staff along with flexible implementation service offerings.
“We are pleased that CBTS has invested in our Fortify technology to add significant value to our mutual customers across North America. CBTS brings a wealth of expertise to the Application Security space and has a proven track record of working with many organizations to help them solve some of their most complex IT challenges,” said Phil Rayment, VP Channels at Micro Focus.
