SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- WhiteHat Security, the only application security provider that combines the best of technology and human intelligence, continues its advocacy for secure application development by announcing today that it has joined the FS-ISAC Affiliate Program. FS-ISAC, or the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center, is the global financial industry's go-to resource for cyber and physical threat intelligence analysis and sharing. FS-ISAC Affiliates are long term strategic partners that support its mission to help protect the financial services industry.
"FS-ISAC Affiliates are an important part of the cybersecurity ecosystem. WhiteHat Security helps support the mission of the FS-ISAC with their contribution of high level educational content and knowledge of the cybersecurity issues that face our industry daily," commented Andrew Hoerner, VP, FS-ISAC.
According to the 2016 Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report, 82% of breaches suffered by financial services organizations were due to web application attacks. Therefore, it is critical for the financial sector in particular to have effective assessment, detection, and mitigation processes and systems in place to prevent cyber criminals from exploiting vulnerabilities.
WhiteHat Security secures applications throughout their entire lifecycle. Through its flagship product, the WhiteHat Sentinel™ software-as-a-service (SaaS) application security platform, customers can quickly deploy a scalable application security program across the entire software development life cycle. WhiteHat's static and dynamic application security testing capabilities scan for application and code vulnerabilities, which are manually vetted by the security experts in WhiteHat's Threat Research Center.
"FS-ISAC is a vital resource to the financial services industry, helping its participants share and stay ahead of cyber threats around the globe. WhiteHat is becoming an Affiliate partner because we are fully commited to this sector and to helping FS-ISAC members continue to lead all industries in terms of threat sharing and cyber security best practices," said Mike Goldgof, VP of Marketing, WhiteHat Security. "We look forward to sharing our application security testing expertise with the FS-ISAC community to help software developers reduce vulnerabilities and close the gap of threat exposure."
