FishNet Security and WhiteHat Security Announce Strategic Partnership

KANSAS CITY, MO-- FishNet Security, the nation's leading provider of information security solutions that combine technology, services, support and training, announced today that it has formed a strategic partnership with WhiteHat Security, the leading provider of website risk management solutions, to better serve enterprise clients with application security needs.

The new partnership leverages FishNet Security's Application Security and Managed Service offerings with WhiteHat Security's SaaS-based website vulnerability management platform, WhiteHat Sentinel. The WhiteHat Sentinel family combines advanced proprietary scanning technology with expert website security analysis, to enable customers to identify, prioritize, manage and remediate vulnerabilities. With a SaaS solution, customers can focus time and resources on the execution of other web application security activities such as code review, application architecture review, and targeted, deep penetration testing for business-critical assets.

"Many of our customers are faced with the reality that, due to the high number of applications that need to be tested annually, semi-annually, or even quarterly, it is too labor intensive to manage these assessments with a desktop scanning tool," said Joey Peloquin, Director of Application Security at FishNet Security. "With WhiteHat as the clear leader in the Web application vulnerability assessment SaaS space, this partnership will allow FishNet Security customers to better scale application security testing from an operational perspective, and devote the resources required to evaluate and address the security posture of their most critical applications."

"WhiteHat Security is excited to kick-off our partnership with Fishnet and introduce their customers to the cost-effective, scalable and accurate WhiteHat Sentinel platform," said Bill Pennington, chief strategy officer, WhiteHat Security. "The combination of Fishnet's application security expertise and WhiteHat Sentinel will provide a breadth of solutions to address the growing risk from insecure Web applications."
