Cigital and Arxan Technologies enter into partnership
Dec 31, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Cigital, a software security consulting firm, and Arxan Technologies, a provider of software security solutions that protect the App Economy, have announced a formal partnership to help clients protect their software assets.
Customers will now be able to combine Arxan's suite of application protection products and Cigital's software security services to implement a defense-in-depth strategy to protect their varied applications across all development environments.
The joint offering will help any organization that produces or procures software including: mobile applications, embedded software, cloud software, or packaged software.
Cigital will reportedly enable customers who have purchased Arxan's solutions to maximize their investment with Cigital's expertise to identify sensitive code and attack targets that require hardening and tamper-protection, design and implement Guard Network protections using Arxan's instrumentation technology, and conduct reviews to audit customer-designed protections.
As a result of this alliance, customers can protect corporate assets and prevent potential catastrophic data, financial, intellectual property or brand loss by building security protections directly into their applications.
"At Cigital our core mission is to help clients design, build and maintain secure software," said Stuart Dross, Cigital vice president of sales. "Arxan's suite of application protection solutions is a unique and integral part of any defense in depth strategy. Cigital's software security consulting services combined with Arxan application protection products offer a powerful solution to increase organizational security while driving down costs."
"In the new App Economy, attacks that compromise the integrity of the application cannot be prevented by adhering to the traditional SDLC or by removing programming flaws, thus requiring customers to build protections inside the application to mitigate these risks," said Jukka Alanen, Arxan vice president of business development.
"The partnership between Arxan and Cigital enables customers to implement a holistic software security strategy that results in secure applications that do not have critical flaws or vulnerabilities, are proactively protected against hacking attacks, and self-defend their integrity."
