Palamida and Cigital Partner to Extend Application Security for Open Source Further Into the Software Development Lifecycle

Partnership Enables Customers to Identify, Assess and Remediate Security Vulnerabilities Due to Undocumented Open Source

Palamida, the leader in application security for open source, today announced a partnership with Cigital, the leading software security and quality consulting firm. Palamida and Cigital are teaming up to provide their customers with the broadest range of subject matter expertise encompassing in-depth open source knowledge and application security best practices. The partnership helps organizations develop an accurate inventory of open source used and assess security implications, reducing the risk that vulnerabilities may be introduced into applications through undocumented code.

Open source helps organizations deliver high-quality, more capable Web and software applications in less time, with fewer resources, said Mark Tolliver, Palamida CEO. But you cannot manage and secure what you do not know you have -- and open source components are often inserted inside applications without formal record of their use. Working with Cigital, we will help organizations expand their coverage to this important new area of application security."

Cigital will use the Palamida Enterprise Edition software to identify the inventory of open source in use, report its location within the code base, and provide descriptions of the open source projects and vulnerabilities associated with them, including classification and severity ranking. Customers will also benefit from associated patch and remediation assessment, services and advice.

In todays world of 24/7 access, applications have become the new frontline of attack, said John Wyatt, Cigital COO. We are pleased to be working with Palamida to help organizations realize the importance of managing security issues surrounding their use of open source. Cigital and Palamida have the extensive experience to identify and remediate security vulnerabilities before they become data breachesand before they become headlines.
