Keeping Safe in the Digital World
Website and application security is more of a concern than ever thanks to the attacks on major corporations like JP Morgan and Home Depot.
Due to this, Rapid7, a provider of security data and analytics software and services, announced that it has acquired Web and mobile application testing company NT OBJECTives (NTO) to help expand its Threat Exposure Management offering.
With the acquisition Rapid7 has changed the name of NTO’s application security testing solution, which analyzes Web applications for security vulnerabilities, to AppSpider and has made it immediately available to consumers. AppSpider brings a variety of features to Rapid7’s Threat Exposure Management offering, including continuous site monitoring to identify changes in application ecosystems and Universal Translator, which enables security teams to analyze more complex applications and Web services.
“To truly manage and reduce threats, organizations require solutions that collect and analyze data across modern business infrastructure, including users, mobile assets, cloud data stores, and web applications,” said Corey Thomas, president and CEO at Rapid7. “NTO’s web application scanning technology will play an important role in Rapid7’s IT Security Data and Analytics platform and help organizations across the globe meet this challenge.”
