IBM has introduced a new software that helps midsize companies detect vulnerabilities that can lead to costly security breaches, improve organizational productivity, and secure data while maintaining compliance with mandatory business regulations.
IBM has said that its new software, Rational AppScan Express Edition, helps companies address both external and internal web security threats before they impact the business. In addition, the software helps small and midsize businesses manage web security and comply with mandatory regulations including the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.
Rational AppScan Express Edition, the latest software addition to IBM’s Express Advantage portfolio, is an automated security testing solution that enables users to test for web application security vulnerabilities. It also provides streamlined advice on how to fix these issues, said IBM.
According to IBM, the latest Rational offering, coupled with the expansion of Express Advantage threat mitigation services into several new countries in 2008, address the growing need for tools and services that midsize companies require to secure their data while maintaining compliance with mandatory business regulations. They also complement existing security solutions created specifically to meet the needs of the mid-market, across IBM Tivoli, Rational and ISS software.
Steve Solazzo, general manager of general business at IBM, said: IBM continues to offer comprehensive and cost-effective solutions through the Express Advantage portfolio to our business partners enabling them to meet the needs of their customers as well as address their challenges. We are determined to ensure the safety of data for our business partner ecosystem and, in turn, their customers.
