IBM Acquires Watchfire

Today IBM announced that they will be purchasing Watchfire.  Press release is here.  It was interesting to see that Watchfire’s tools were slated to find a home with the Rational development tools rather than the business unit that was formerly ISS.  Personally I think that is a great idea because it give the application security tools to the application developers.

    Hey,

    I couldn’t agree more. It is time to push security into the development lifecycle. This is not a cliche. Performing security at the end of the process makes absolutely no sense at all.
