Watchfire releases AppScan Enterprise 5

Watchfire announced AppScan Enterprise 5.  Based on next-generation technology, this new version further strengthens the power of the industry’s only web-based application security solution for security professionals, and now extends its utility to include a new point and shoot testing tool called QuickScan and integrated Computer Based Training to accelerate the adoption of security testing by QA and development teams.
Highlights of AppScan Enterprise 5’s Next Generation Architecture:
·         Advanced scanning capabilities that find vulnerabilities associated with the latest Web 2.0 technologies such as AJAX, as well as advanced JavaScript and Flash
·         Manual Explore and Recorded Login features to ensure successful site navigation and complete crawling
·         More flexible reporting framework with enhanced searching, grouping and filtering
·     More granular controls to lock down scanning and report access so sensitive security data is only available to those who truly need it
·         Complete technology refresh with cleaner architecture and improved customization capabilities
·         Brand new graphical user interface, providing ease of use for developers

“Organizations are struggling with how to integrate security testing with their SDLC,” said Jim Routh, CISO, Depository Trust & Clearing Corp. “What Watchfire understands is that it’s not just about arming developers with robust vulnerability scanning tools. It’s about providing developers with both accessible technology and accessible education. Only through this combination will developers begin to incorporate vulnerability assessment results into their application development process.” Â
