SPI Dynamics Announces Integration with IBM's Testing Products

SPI Dynamics Integrates QAInspect(TM) Enterprise with IBM's Rational(R) Software Development Platform to Enable Customers to Eff

ORLANDO, Fla., June 5 /PRNewswire/ -- S.P.I. Dynamics Incorporated (http://www.spidynamics.com/), an expert in Web application security assessment and testing, today announced the company has been working closely with IBM to integrate its QAInspect Enterprise security testing products with IBM's Rational Software Development Platform. This integration allows Quality Assurance (QA) professionals to analyze Web applications for security defects from within the IBM Rational Software Development Platform, and enables them to use this single platform to plan, execute and manage automated Web application security testing. The collaboration between SPI Dynamics and IBM expands the Rational Quality Assurance Solution through joint marketing and sales enablement programs.

As recently noted by Gartner analysts Amrit Williams and Neil MacDonald in a research report titled, "Integrate Security Best Practices and Tools Into Software Development Life Cycle (10 Feb. 2006), "Organizations need to integrate security best practices, security testing tools and security- focused processes into their software development life cycle. Proper execution improves application security, reduces overall costs, increases customer satisfaction and yields a more-efficient SDLC." Organizations utilizing the IBM Rational Software Development platform can now meet quality and security standards for Web applications throughout the Software Development Lifecycle.

"Web applications are under considerable risk of malicious attack, and protecting application data is an increasingly challenging issue for our customers," said Michael Loria, vice president business development, Rational Software, IBM. "Together IBM and SPI Dynamics empower the IBM Rational QA customer base to correct security defects within Web-based applications before they become a significant corporate risk in a production environment."

SPI Dynamics has collaborated with IBM to develop an open integrated solution that has been validated for the Ready for IBM Rational software integration standards, and that helps development organizations address security defects early in the application development lifecycle to minimize the significant risk associated with vulnerable Web applications, and address legal and regulatory compliance policies.

"By incorporating the ability to configure, execute, and manage application security testing within the IBM Rational Software Development platform, QA professionals are empowered to accurately test for security vulnerabilities. The QAInspect integration with the IBM Rational Software Development Platform is a significant step forward to simplify application security within QA so that it doesn't require months of training. Security vulnerabilities are software defects and should be treated the same way; however, this is a fairly new concept for most development organizations," said Brian Cohen, president and CEO, SPI Dynamics. "SPI Dynamics is excited to work with IBM to bring to market a joint solution that helps the QA professional deliver more secure, higher quality applications. We look forward to a strong, ongoing relationship."
