“Today, more than 70 percent of hacker attacks worldwide are actively targeting websites, and 80% of sites have a serious vulnerability, so the importance of website security cannot be overstated,” said Jeremiah Grossman, founder and CTO of WhiteHat Security. “We’re pleased to partner with an experienced application security provider like Denim Group to ensure that companies have ongoing website vulnerability management oversight which enables them to protect critical data, ensure compliance, and narrow the window of risk.”
The WhiteHat Sentinel family of website security solutions delivers the visibility, flexibility and control that enables companies to secure their websites, regardless of company size or volume of applications. WhiteHat Sentinel delivers accurate, and verified results via an on-demand, SaaS-based subscription service, combining advanced proprietary automated scanning technology with expert analysis. Once software vulnerabilities are identified, Denim Group’s seasoned development team can prioritize risks and quickly remediate security defects found in its customers’ applications. In addition, Denim Group offers website security training, providing everything from individual courses to entire training and process improvement initiatives targeted at those building, testing, and managing custom software.
“This partnership allows Denim Group to use White Hat’s technology to provide its clients with ongoing vulnerability assessment for their Web application portfolio,” said Dan Cornell, principal of Denim Group. “In addition, we can accelerate remediation times for WhiteHat’s customers and offer targeted education services on Web application security so that the same vulnerabilities don’t get reintroduced.”
