Fortify Software Inc. has announced that it has formed an alliance in the application security market with Wipro Technologies, the Global IT Services Division of Wipro Limited based in India. Together, Fortify and Wipro will increase the security of software applications that Wipro custom builds for enterprise customers around the world.
Wipro Technologies will use Fortify Source Code Analysis (SCA) Suite, the gold standard in source code security analysis, to provide application security consulting and audit services to its customers as part of its enterprise security practice. Wipro Technologies’ security practice provides risk assessment services and addresses application and Web services security throughout the software development lifecycle. Fortify SCA expands these services by expanding Wipro’s ability to assess its customers’ software development processes and recommend improvements to the security of applications, thereby allowing enterprise companies to move towards a secure software development lifecycle model.
“Our customers’ IT infrastructures depend on hundreds of critical applications, making the security of these applications a paramount concern for them,” said Prasenjit Saha, General Manager, Enterprise Security Solutions, Wipro Technologies. “Fortify’s technology allows us to assess and audit clients’ code to ensure it is free of security vulnerabilities. In addition, it helps us enforce secure coding practices and standards among our own development teams without sacrificing efficiency.”
Fortify SCA helps security, testing and development teams pinpoint and eliminate security vulnerabilities in software applications. Fortify’s patent-pending technology delivers the most accurate and reliable results with low false positives. Fortify SCA analyses across tiers, languages (Java, .NET (C#, VB), C/C++, JSP, PL/SQL, Cold Fusion, T-SQL, & XML), platforms (Windows, Linux, Solaris, AIX, Mac OS X), and systems. In addition, it provides customisable reporting and rules capabilities to provide tailored results that meet different needs.
