IBM unveils new software to advance security analysis

Software vulnerability analysis consolidation and reporting into a single view across the enterprise

By CBR Staff Writer

IBM has unveiled new software and analysis capabilities that provide an efficient and accurate way to help organisations design, build and manage secure applications.

The new software consolidates software vulnerability analysis and reporting into a single view across the enterprise.

The company said that developers can now assess security threats across the entire software development lifecycle, enabling global development teams to identify and test security exposures, and help reduce the risks and costs associated with security and compliance concerns.

The new security offerings include enhancements to the IBM Rational AppScan portfolio that simplifies security vulnerability analysis and identification for software developers.

In addition, the IBM Research provides string analysis, a software development capability that helps simplify the security testing process by automatically detecting and verifying which Web application development input needs to be cleansed to remove security risks.

IBM said that new advancements in its Rational AppScan portfolio simplify and automate security scanning with new hybrid analysis capabilities, improving vulnerability identification and remediation.
