In the application security space, customers and prospects tell the same story time and time again:
Software composition analysis (SCA) allows organizations to identify third-party and open source components that have been integrated into all applications, and for each of these components, it identifies:
Everyone knows that there are two things that are certain in life: death and taxes.
The popularity of reusable software components has soared throughout the developer community in recent years, largely due to the convenience and time saving opportunities they offer.
For every 100KLOC, a monolithic application will have an average of 39 vulnerabilities, whereas a microservice application will have an average of 180 vulnerabilities.
After an exhilarating RSA 2019, where WhiteHat Security announced that NTT Security has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the company and cybersecurity vendors from all segments of the market came together to show their innovations to the world, it’s time to reflect on some of the key themes and concerns resulting from the show.
There’s been much public debate in the tech industry around a growing shortage of qualified tech talent that’s making it difficult for organizations to hire or find workers with the right skills or experience.
Over the past year, data breaches, through web, business, and mobile application exploitation, have continued to run rampant. In 2018, major household names like Ticketmaster, the United States Postal Service (USPS), Air Canada, and British Airways were hit by application-based exploits.
I recently had the opportunity to attend the fourth annual Watermark Women’s Conference held in Silicon Valley, and what an experience it was!

Today marks a big step for WhiteHat Security. I am delighted to announce that NTT Security Corporation, one of the world’s most respected security organizations, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire WhiteHat Security.
The RSA Conference (March 4-8, 2019) kicks off today in San Francisco, serving as a timely and important reminder of the criticality of securely building products in an increasingly unsafe digital world.
In 2018, the number of exposed data records through breached applications more than doubled from 197.6 million in 2017 to 446.5 million. And this trajectory will likely continue through 2019.
IT security is a massive concern for many organizations of all shapes and sizes. The consequences of a security failure are often drastic, sometimes terminal. Over recent years, there has been a relentless upward trajectory in spending on IT security, and there are no signs of that trend abating.
Each year, by the time the calendar changes to February, for many, the interest in maintaining the New Year’s resolutions made in early January has started to wane. While increasing work life balance, eating healthier and losing weight frequently make the resolutions list, what about resolutions to help safeguard data?
Staying on top of the evolving threat landscape is a daunting task, to say the least. There is just so much information that researchers must sift through, that it’s easy to become overloaded.
With an expanding client roster, key executive leadership appointments and widespread adoption of its platform, 2018 was a banner year for WhiteHat Security, one that saw more than 35 percent growth and the highest customer retention to date.
Throughout the past couple of years, we have seen massive data breaches affect hundreds of companies across all industries. Due to these incidents, companies have lost millions of dollars in revenue and time as they rush to mitigate damages, inform the public and fix the problem at hand.
January is a time for new beginnings, and for many people, that means exploring new job opportunities, or even embarking on an entirely different career path.
Shockingly, application security is an often-overlooked area in the enterprise cybersecurity lineup, despite its clear criticality.
Today’s applications touch millions if not billions of people on a daily basis. With virtually every business using applications to grow, they are critical to companies’ success—yet the vulnerabilities and risks associated with them continue to increase exponentially.
The financial repercussions of large-scale consumer data breaches are coming into greater focus. Recent reports indicate that Facebook will face a whopping $1.6 billion fine in Europe for compromising 30 million user accounts, while Uber is expected to pay $148 million for its 2016 data breach.
Application programming interfaces (APIs) have proven to be a great way for businesses to increase the value of their offerings for customers.
As cybercriminals’ methods become increasingly more advanced and sophisticated, no business or device is safe from an attack, with repercussions that could damage reputations, data and bottom lines.
As technology continues to evolve and more and more consumers interact with businesses online via apps, the biggest question is how can businesses keep their employee and customer information safe?
As we marvel once again that the holidays are already upon us, it’s also an opportunity to reflect on 2018, and set a new security strategy that takes into account what we may be up against for the coming year. I sat down recently with our trusted experts and threat intelligence pros, who’ve been right about predicting many trends in cybersecurity
It’s probably fair to say that 2018 has experienced more than its share of data breaches. In fact, according to Gemalto’s Breach Level Index, the first half of the year alone saw 945 data breaches compromise an incredible 4.5 billion data records worldwide.
As another year comes to a close, application security remains more important than ever; it is a must have. With virtually every business using applications to grow their businesses, the vulnerabilities and risks associated with these business-enabling applications continue to grow exponentially.
2018 has been a record year for security breaches – but that’s not news. Inevitably, each year has more security incidents than the previous year, and the pattern is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.
Since it’s Thanksgiving, WhiteHat wondered, what are hackers giving thanks for? The simplest answers are Google, gigabit internet speeds, and an endless supply of caffeine. But the number one thing that hackers are overwhelmingly grateful for is DATA, especially passwords stored in plain or cleartext.
