LAS VEGAS, Aug. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- BlackHat USA (Booth #1011) -- WhiteHat Security, the web security company, today announced a new strategic partnership with Prevoty, Inc., a leader in runtime application security monitoring and protection. Customers of WhiteHat's Sentinel software-as-a-service platform will now have the option of mitigating identified application bugs and defects automatically by seamlessly integrating with Prevoty's Application Monitoring and Protection (AMP) solution for RASP capabilities.

Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP), is an emerging security technology that allows applications to automatically defend against attacks without requiring changes to the application source code. According to Gartner, Inc., "The accuracy of attack detection and protection will greatly advance if applications stop delegating their entire protection to external devices and adopt RASP." [1]

Integration of Prevoty AMP and WhiteHat Sentinel allows WhiteHat customers the ability to instantly and easily mitigate identified application vulnerabilities.

"With its powerful RASP technology, we believe that this partnership with Prevoty will help our customers to innovate quickly and efficiently without sacrificing speed for security," said Craig Hinkley, CEO of WhiteHat Security. "By joining forces, customers can now not only accurately detect bugs and defects in their applications, they can also easily mitigate those vulnerabilities without changing source code and significantly reduce the costs of remediation in their web applications."

"WhiteHat Security's Sentinel software-as-a-service platform provides continuous assessment methodology that is incredibly valuable to enterprises with fast application release cycles," said Julien Bellanger, co-founder and CEO of Prevoty. "Adding Prevoty enables security and development teams to both prioritize remediation efforts and dramatically reduce exposure to vulnerabilities while the applications are being remediated."  

The combination of WhiteHat Sentinel and Prevoty AMP provides significant benefits for enterprise application security programs:

  • Visibility into Production Environments
    • See which applications are actually under attack, not just vulnerable
    • Prioritize remediation efforts where they are needed most
  • Improved Vulnerability Management
    • View both detected and mitigated vulnerabilities at the same time
    • Immediate insight into attacks that can be mitigated automatically
  • Instant Protection
    • Simultaneously detect and mitigate vulnerabilities, lowering vulnerability exposure time
    • Allow time for development teams to remediate critical vulnerabilities
    • Significantly reduce remediation effort for legacy applications

Ultimately, by using these integrated solutions, enterprises can expect lower costs of vulnerability remediation, optimized use of expensive development resources, reduced risk from lowered exposure to vulnerabilities and quicker time-to-market for new applications.

In addition to the technology integration, Prevoty's RASP solution, Prevoty AMP, will also be sold by all WhiteHat Security representatives and channel partners.

WhiteHat Security and Prevoty will be demonstrating the joint solution at Black Hat USA 2015, happening August 1-6 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Demonstrations will be held at WhiteHat Security booth #1011 and Prevoty booth #966.
