Denim Group Wins Award at RSA 2016 for Innovation in Compliance

ThreadFix recognized for enabling developers to quickly fix application vulnerabilities and providing application vulnerability information for better application risk management at the enterprise level

Denim Group, LTD., the leading secure software development firm, today announced that its application security vulnerability management tool, ThreadFix, was recognized as a silver winner for Innovation in Compliance at the 2016 Info Security Global Excellence Awards. Denim Group received the award on February 29, 2016, during an awards gala at the RSA 2016 Conference where winners were acknowledged amongst their peers for their advanced, groundbreaking products and solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technology.

“Finding vulnerabilities is only the first step to remediation; you also need to be able to make sense of the endless data coming in,” stated John Dickson, Principal at Denim Group. “Unfortunately this can often be like searching for a needle in a haystack. Our recognition by Info Security is further validation that our focus on streamlining the workflow between the security and software development teams with ThreadFix, is the linchpin to accelerate software vulnerability remediation and aid software risk managers in making more informed decisions involving application risk in real time.”

ThreadFix is an application security vulnerability management tool for developers and security professionals. It enables developers to quickly consolidate application vulnerability scan reports and can provide application vulnerability information to leading IDE, defect trackers, and Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) tools for better application risk management at the enterprise level. By syncing with these tools, application security is placed squarely in front of security operators and risk management decision makers for inclusion, analysis, and comparison with all other risk information. Furthermore, ThreadFix aggregates multiple vulnerability test results into a centralized platform, and automates the prioritization of the application’s vulnerabilities into a unified list that application security managers can further prioritize via a centralized dashboard.

Recognized by the Info Security Global Excellence Awards for its ability to give security practitioners the ability to understand the security of their applications and efficiently conduct remediation, ThreadFix provides a comprehensive and easy-to-understand view of the state of an organization’s software security posture.
