World's Largest Software Security Consulting Firm Cigital and Arxan Technologies Form Partnership to Help Organizations Assess and Mitigate App Security Risk

Partnership Will Enable Joint Customers in Financial Services, ISVs, and High-Tech Industries to Build Security Protections Into Their Applications to Keep Brands, Revenues, and Intellectual Property Safe

DULLES, VA and BETHESDA, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 12/17/12 -- Cigital, the world's largest software security consulting firm, and Arxan Technologies, the industry leader of software security solutions that protect the App Economy, today announced a formal partnership to help clients protect their most valuable software assets.

Customers will now be able to combine Arxan's suite of application protection products and Cigital's software security services to implement a comprehensive, defense-in-depth strategy to protect their varied applications across all major development environments. The joint offering will help any organization that produces or procures software including: mobile applications, embedded software, cloud software, or packaged software. Cigital and Arxan will enable organizations to protect the integrity of their applications against hacking attacks such as reverse-engineering, tampering with critical functionality, disabling or circumventing security controls, piracy/intellectual property theft, or insertion of malicious code/exploits.

"Applications embody an organization's sensitive intellectual property and will be attacked by competitors, hackers and hostile nation-states looking to steal those secrets. Applications need the capability to be self-defending; however, most organizations don't have the expertise internally to apply this type of protection," said Neil MacDonald, vice president, distinguished analyst and Gartner Fellow.

Jointly, the companies will leverage Cigital's global staff of more than 150 software security professionals to expand deployment, integration and management of Arxan's suite of application protection products and provide holistic application security solutions which address both programming and code exploits as well as threats to application integrity.

Cigital will enable customers who have purchased Arxan's solutions to maximize their investment with Cigital's expertise to identify sensitive code and attack targets that require hardening and tamper-protection, design and implement Guard Network protections using Arxan's instrumentation technology, and conduct reviews to audit customer-designed protections. Additionally, customers can take advantage of Cigital's deep consulting expertise in software portfolio and application assessments, secure SDLC implementation, and software security training. As a result of this alliance, customers can protect corporate assets and prevent potential catastrophic data, financial, intellectual property or brand loss by building security protections directly into their applications.

"At Cigital our core mission is to help clients design, build and maintain secure software," said Stuart Dross, Cigital vice president of sales. "Arxan's suite of application protection solutions is a unique and integral part of any defense in depth strategy. Cigital's software security consulting services combined with Arxan application protection products offer a powerful solution to increase organizational security while driving down costs."

"In the new App Economy, attacks that compromise the integrity of the application cannot be prevented by adhering to the traditional SDLC or by removing programming flaws, thus requiring customers to build protections inside the application to mitigate these risks," said Jukka Alanen, Arxan vice president of business development. "The partnership between Arxan and Cigital enables customers to implement a holistic software security strategy that results in secure applications that do not have critical flaws or vulnerabilities, are proactively protected against hacking attacks, and self-defend their integrity."

The past few years have brought a sea change in the way applications are architected, developed, and consumed—increasing both the complexity of testing and the business impact of software failures. How can software testing professionals keep pace with modern application delivery, given the trends that impact both architectures (cloud, microservices, and APIs) and processes (DevOps, agile, and continuous delivery)? This is where continuous testing comes in. D

Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan. It must do so by realizing that we now live in a data-driven age, and that technologies such as Cloud Computing, Big Data, the IoT, Cognitive Computing, and Blockchain are only tools. In her general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rebecca Wanta explained how the strategy must focus on DX and include a commitment from top management to create great IT jobs, monitor ...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It’s clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Tha...

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
You know you need the cloud, but you're hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You're looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you're concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies. What do you do?
