This recognition further validates our platform approach and our unwavering commitment to securing digital business by securing the applications that drive the business.”

WhiteHat Security was recognized among its peers for its ability to protect confidential data, help its customers meet compliance requirements and deliver practical threat management. WhiteHat protects tens of thousands of websites for well over 850 customers spanning every industry and continues to grow through partnerships with managed security providers and security integrators. With its Threat Research Center, a complete and extensible platform that plugs into the various inflection points in the SDLC, and a comprehensive set of integrations and APIs, WhiteHat Security’s application security solutions work across departments to reduce wasted time verifying vulnerabilities.

The WhiteHat Sentinel Application Security Platform is recognized for providing the full complement of application security services that enable organizations to implement DevSecOps and support the entire SDLC: Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST), Static Application Security Testing (SAST), and Mobile Application Testing. Unlike tool vendors, every vulnerability identified by WhiteHat Sentinel is manually verified for accuracy by a security expert in the company’s Threat Research Center (TRC). These experts are an integral part of WhiteHat’s platform services, not only providing vulnerability verification to weed out false positives, but also providing “Ask a Question” support and Directed Remediation help to speed the time it takes to fix vulnerabilities. WhiteHat Scout, a fully automated service for developers working in DevOps environments, extends the accuracy of the TRC through Attack Vector Intelligence™, which combines WhiteHat’s patented correlation engine, 17 years of data on application vulnerabilities, and more than 100 million attack vectors verified by the TRC.
