New York, NY – October 19, 2004 – Application Security Inc. (,) today released a new version of its database application vulnerability assessment scanner – AppDetective 4.1.

For example, support for Oracle’s OPatch tool – a standardized patch management framework – enables AppDetective 4.1 to more easily determine which Oracle patch is being run on a system. As a result, AppDetective can more quickly tune it’s auditing to focus on the most relevant, highest risk vulnerabilities.

Also new to AppDetective 4.1 is support for IBM WebSphere in the AppDetective for Web Applications module.
