SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/11/12 -- WhiteHat Security, the Web security company, today announced Sentinel Source, the most powerful solution for creating secure online applications from inception to launch. Taking a radical new approach to enterprise security intelligence, Sentinel Source is the only scalable Static Application Security Testing (SAST) solution on the market that offers continuous, concurrent assessments. With the ability to track source code development for vulnerabilities in real-time and complete integration with WhiteHat's Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) product line that assesses sites in production and pre-production, Sentinel Source gives developers and security teams a robust solution for building applications and a more secure Internet for businesses and their customers.
In a competitive, Web-based business environment, companies quickly add more functionality to online applications and unwittingly create more attack surfaces for hackers. Now, developers carry increasingly greater responsibility to protect the organization from data loss. Sentinel Source tests Web applications as they are developed, returning code remediation data to security teams and developers to address security issues that matter most earlier in the development lifecycle, reducing risk, cost and resource-strain. Additional, industry-first benefits include:
"Recent events have shown Web applications are the new front-line of businesses and that developers now play a key role in not only growing the business, but protecting it as well," said Jerry Hoff, vice president, static code analysis division, WhiteHat Security. "Sentinel Source extends WhiteHat Security's proven Sentinel Web security platform to cover the entire software development lifecycle with unmatched efficiency and efficacy. What began with WhiteHat Sentinel, the pioneering massively scalable, always-accurate DAST testing solution for production applications, has now become a holistic solution, with Sentinel Source, to secure application code as it's built, improving developer skills and creating industry-leading security practices."
Sentinel Source means enterprises no longer need to rely on consultants or unverified, unclear data from tools to secure their Web-based applications. Sentinel Source's proprietary scanning engine identifies code vulnerabilities before agile developers have moved past them, preventing downstream flaws that leave an organization open for attack. All vulnerability information is then viewed by organizations through WhiteHat Sentinel's intuitive Web UI for quick and easy remediation.
The Sentinel Family
The WhiteHat Sentinel product family is comprised of SaaS-based solutions addressing application security needs for businesses of any size. Each solution provides access to the industry's only Threat Research Center, which combines verification by WhiteHat's security engineers and access to actionable remediation advice.
Sentinel Source is now available globally and includes Sentinel Baseline Edition (BE) to ensure all applications continue to be assessed after going live.
