WhiteHat Security and RiskSense Partner for Application Security Risk Management

Today RiskSense announced a partnership with WhiteHat Security for the automation of web application security risk assessment, and management. The integration of the RiskSense platform and WhiteHat Sentinel Dynamic enables organizations to continuously identify vulnerabilities, assessing their business criticality and prioritizing remediation.

"Reliable detection, monitoring, and analysis of web applications composed of multiple programming languages, frameworks, APIs, and application types is difficult without automation," said Srinivas Mukkamala, co-founder and CEO for RiskSense. "The integration of WhiteHat with the RiskSense platform combines WhiteHat's industry-leading application security testing capabilities with our ability to score threats based on their business risk so organizations can collaborate and address the most critical problems before they can be exploited."

The RiskSense platform transforms cyber security risk management into a collaborative and real-time discipline. It uses machine learning algorithms to contextualize internal intelligence gathered from security systems with external threat data sources to identify potential cyber risks and assess their business criticality to prioritize remediation actions for physical and virtual assets. RiskSense's integration with WhiteHat Sentinel Dynamic enables RiskSense to consume outputs on web application vulnerabilities from dynamic application security testing (DAST) scans to assess and risk-score threats, and prioritize those that need immediate attention.

"For years, WhiteHat has been reporting on application vulnerabilities and remediation rates in our annual stats report, and for years, these rates have remained too high," said Craig Hinkley, CEO of WhiteHat Security. "Close to 50 percent of applications remain vulnerable on every single day of the year, and remediation rates range from an average of 129 days to 196 days. With this integration between our platform, which provides the highest level of accuracy in the industry, and the RiskSense platform, which offers the most advanced and scalable solution for correlating and analyzing threat data, we're able to deliver more comprehensive intelligence about threats and support faster remediation decision-making."

WhiteHat Sentinel Dynamic is part of the WhiteHat Application Security Platform, a Software-as-a-Service platform that provides the full complement of application security services for DevSecOps. Sentinel Dynamic continuously scans websites as they evolve, providing automatic detection and assessment of code changes and alerting for newly discovered vulnerabilities. WhiteHat's Threat Research Center works to validate every vulnerability and eliminate false positives so users can focus on improving the overall security of their organization.
