Stamford, CT- March 2, 2005-Kavado Inc., the global leader in web application security solutions for the distributed enterprise, and Security Innovation Inc., the industry leader in application security testing, research and training, today announced that they are co-hosting a webcast to discuss “What Managers Should Know About Web Application Security” on Thursday, March 10, 2005 at 1:00PM EST.
“High profile identity thefts, such as the recent ChoicePoint occurrence, have underscored the growing urgency to better proactively guard confidential data. As security incursions grow, consumers and governmental agencies will require assurances that businesses employ effective measures to safeguard private information,” said Vikram Desai, CEO of Kavado Inc. “And as companies start bringing sensitive consumer data online to provide better customer service and streamlined business processes, solid web application security will need to be a critical piece of the security plan.”
Edward A. Adams, CEO of Security Innovations and Vikram Desai, CEO of Kavado will discuss best practices for defending Web applications and why network perimeter defenses alone do not protect the enterprise. Participants will learn about the cost of security defects, common Web site attacks, flaws of Web application development, and more.
