IRVINE, Calif., April 11 /PRNewswire/ -- NT OBJECTives, Inc, an innovative
provider of application security solutions, today announced the launch of its
comprehensive solutions to help companies develop sound security policies and
processes to better assess and eliminate enterprise risks and ensure that
application and web server content remains secure. Its NTOSpider product
provides automated and accurate application vulnerability assessment, while
its expert team of security professionals provides education, guidance and
security process development to organizations worldwide.
"Technology or services alone are simply enablers," said JD Glaser,
president and CEO at NT OBJECTives. "Cohesive solutions are created when
people are given the skills and tools they need to build secure processes. NT
OBJECTives is uniquely positioned to provide true enterprise solutions for
application security through a combination of advanced technology and expert
With increasing demands on organizations to expand access to services and
information, application developers and security professionals need more
intelligent assessment tools to ensure the security of often very complex
applications. NTOSpider is uniquely capable of evaluating 100 percent of site
content, regardless of complexity. NTOSpider includes highly advanced
technology to automate complex site interaction including authentication and
providing comprehensive site coverage and ensuring safety for the target
environment. NTOSpider speeds up development and testing dramatically, while
providing the information needed to make intelligent security decisions.
"Application security is our top concern," said Ken Pfeil, CSO at
CapitalIQ, a leading financial data services provider. "As CSO, I am
responsible for all aspects of security for our division, which consists of
over 1,000 employees at eight locations worldwide. Serving customers in the
financial market, our CapitalIQ application is our bread and butter and it is
critical that it remain solid and secure. We needed a quicker and more
accurate way to check code and application behavior within a security context.
We selected NTOSpider from NT OBJECTives for its ability to perform complex
checks with proven accuracy."
NT OBJECTives helps organizations not only identify threats, but also
understand the nature of inherent exposure through site analysis, thereby
enabling them to quickly identify and remediate high risk vulnerabilities,
while proactively developing effective policies and processes for continuous
"Vulnerability assessment alone simply creates a work-list of things to
fix," said Erik Caso, vice president of development at NT OBJECTives.
"Without policies in place up front to address these issues, organizations
will be faced with the same work-lists month after month, year after year.
NTOSpider's Site Analysis provides clear insight into site architecture and
complexity to assist in developing application security process and policy."
NT OBJECTives provides graphical HTML reports for all audiences, which
summarize security risk with detailed remediation information. Its exclusive
Resource Mapping quickly articulates site structure and vulnerabilities using
an interactive, 3D map with links to all threat information. Furthermore, all
data is stored natively in XML, allowing reuse of assessment data across the
"We evaluated many products, and it was difficult to find something out of
the box that really lived up to its claims," said Pfeil. "We have a very
complex web environment, running primarily Microsoft .NET platform. The code
base is extremely complex, diverse, and dispersed. Many products promised the
world, but when we actually ran them, they would find only known flaws.
NTOSpider lives up to its claims of automation, thoroughness and accuracy and
we are confident in its results. We were extremely impressed with its
capability to perform advanced checks including dual authentication from the
same command line and automated page iteration assessment. We have been
running the product for about six months now. The complete implementation took
only a few days and now NT OBJECTives has reduced our total man hours by one-
third. Anyone can paint a rosy picture, but it makes my job a lot easier when
I have a tool that demonstrates repeatable results."
