WhiteHat Security, an application security provider for enterprises’ businesses, recently announced its partnership with the U.S.-based IT outsourcing services provider Rural Sourcing to offer enhanced solutions to identify and remediate application-level exposures.
The new alliance will integrate the SaaS-based WhiteHat Application Security Platform with Rural Sourcing’s vulnerability remediation services to alleviate the challenges of DevSecOps and help organizations in digital transformation.
WhiteHat provides services that are required for organizations to secure the entire software lifecycle (SLC) from the development through deployment and operation. The WhiteHat Application Security Platform technology solutions include Software Composition Analysis (SCA), Static Application Security Testing (SAST), and Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST).
“Companies looking to secure their digital business are acutely aware of application-level vulnerabilities but lack the resources to identify and fix them in a timely manner,” said Derek Perry, vice president, Innovation at Rural Sourcing. “Whether utilizing inhouse or offshore resources, there are significant challenges to overcome, which can be addressed by sourcing IT resources onshore. WhiteHat and Rural Sourcing bring a unique combination of technology and talent, which can identify and remediate application-based threats, ensuring a company’s digital business is properly defended.”
“The WhiteHat platform was designed to enable true DevSecOps and help companies catch critical vulnerabilities in their code before it’s too late,” said Debbie Klett, director of Channels, WhiteHat Security. “While we’ve always provided guidance on remediating these issues, the Rural Sourcing partnership will enable customers to leave that final step in the hands of some of the industry’s top experts, so they can focus on growing their business. We are thrilled to begin this joint effort in making application security more accessible for all organizations.”
Recently, NTT Security Corporation (Tokyo) signed a definitive agreement to acquire WhiteHat Security. Post-acquisition, WhiteHat Security will operate as an independent, wholly-owned subsidiary of NTT Security Corporation.
As per the new alliance, NTT Security will provide end-to-end cybersecurity solutions. Together, the two organizations will address enterprise security needs that range from IT infrastructure to critical business applications, covering the full lifecycle of digital transformation. The acquisition expands NTT Security’s portfolio, allowing its customers and partners to benefit from WhiteHat Security’s industry-leading, cloud-based Application Security Platform. WhiteHat’s customers and partners will have access to NTT Security’s consulting and advisory services, along with their next-generation platform-based Managed Security Services.
