It’s a historic day at NTT Application Security.
For just over 20 years, we have served as pioneers in the Application Security Testing market, and today we build upon that rich history of innovation by unveiling the new WhiteHat Vantage Platform—a next-gen SaaS platform built to accelerate AppSec to the speed of modern development.
Built on top of a powerful and flexible cloud-based SaaS architecture, The WhiteHat Vantage Platform—named to honor our company’s origins as WhiteHat Security—lays the foundation for enterprises to take a simplified approach to application security. By strategically layering three lightning-fast, purpose-built testing solutions at the most critical inflection points of the SDLC, developers and security teams can now focus on priority items. Additionally, the platform features a robust public API that unlocks seamless integrations with teams’ existing tools to streamline workflows, automate application security testing and deliver powerful insights by consolidating results from layered testing solutions.
“The WhiteHat Vantage Platform directly addresses the most important but often overlooked challenges facing security teams. Traditional application security solutions cater to application security teams, and therefore lack intelligent context and holistic implementations that benefit developers. Over time, this has put many organizations’ security programs in a reactive state that cannot keep up with the velocity of current development cycles. As one of the industry’s pioneers, we felt that it was upon us to bring about an innovative and forward-thinking approach to application security testing once again, just as we did 20 years ago as WhiteHat Security.” – Craig Hinkley, chief executive officer at NTT Application Security
Alongside today’s announcement, we’re also revealing the first solution under The WhiteHat Vantage Platform—Vantage Inspect powered by ShiftLeft. Designed to provide a familiar and intuitive experience, Vantage Inspect is a developer-focused solution that combines software composition analysis (SCA), static application security testing (SAST) and Infrastructure-as-Code technologies to give in-context security feedback directly within the native code repository. This direct line of communication allows developers to secure code early in development so critical vulnerabilities are not deployed into pre-production, while also educating developers on best practices for producing higher quality code.
Vantage Inspect powered by ShiftLeft gives enterprises a differentiated ability to prioritize SCA findings by attackability. Tapping into the power of the Code Property Graph, Vantage Inspect can determine if identified vulnerabilities would actually be exploitable in a production environment, giving developers the ability to prioritize library patching based not only on vulnerability criticality but also on the likelihood that an attacker will find and exploit a weakness.
In the next phase of the platform launch, NTT Application Security will introduce organizations to the WhiteHat Vantage Platform’s patented, intelligence-directed dynamic application security testing (ID-DAST). This revolutionary technology unlocks the ability for developers and DevOps teams to integrate functional and dynamic security testing at each step of the SDLC and prevent exploitable vulnerabilities from reaching production.
