LockPath Adds Integration With Tinfoil Security's Web Application Scanner to Keylight Platform

OVERLAND PARK, KS--(Marketwired - April 16, 2015) - Websites are prime access points for hackers. It is therefore critical for companies to routinely monitor and check for vulnerabilities, especially for those managing multiple Internet properties.

To address website security needs of its customers, LockPath has added a new integration with Tinfoil Security, one of the leading website application scanning providers. This integration packages Tinfoil security's website scanning capabilities with LockPath's Keylight platform to help users identify and fix vulnerabilities in their websites. The Tinfoil integration is part of the recent release of Keylight 4.1.1.

Tinfoil is a developer-focused service that allows users to scan their Internet properties for vulnerabilities and fix them quickly and easily, with easy integrations into the DevOps and deployment process. Tinfoil also provides an easy-to-use overview of a website's security health and vulnerabilities, and suggests steps to better secure a site.

"Development has changed massively over the last decade, and security tools simply haven't kept up," said Michael Borohovski, Chief Technology Officer at Tinfoil Security. "We empower developers to find and fix vulnerabilities while they build their software, just as they would any other bug."

Keylight packages this information to make it easier for organizations to prioritize and launch workflows to address vulnerabilities. Keylight can also correlate scan information to internal assets, external hosting services, and policies and procedures. And Keylight can ensure that Tinfoil scan results are combined with incidents and remediation efforts to be included in relevant audits.

"Obtaining a holistic picture of the many vulnerabilities open to hackers is a challenge most organizations face," said Chris Goodwin, Chief Technology Officer at LockPath. "Our partnership with Tinfoil gives our mutual customers advanced tools to identify and fix vulnerabilities in their Internet properties."

The Keylight platform and its individual applications, combined, offer more than 30 connectors to third-party intelligence, data, analytics and content feeds provided by our network of technology partners. These products enhance Keylight's functionality by providing access to critical data on vulnerabilities, web applications, security, technology configuration and incident monitoring, all without writing a single line of code. This information can then be linked to regulations, controls, assets, vendors and risk registers. And Keylight packages this data into reports and dashboards, providing instant visibility into operational and IT risks across an enterprise.

The Tinfoil Connector is available to Keylight customers for purchase. Visit lockpath.com for more information on LockPath and the Keylight platform. Follow LockPath on Twitter at @LockPath and @KeylightGRC for the latest in industry, company and product news.
