WhiteHat Security Announces Sentinel Baseline Edition Enterprise, Combining Web Application Risk Identification and Profiling With Cost-Effective Website Security

WhiteHat Sentinel Baseline Edition Enterprise Discovers Websites; Identifies Vulnerabilities for an Accurate, Prioritized View of Overall Corporate Security

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 24, 2012) - WhiteHat Security, the Web security company, today announced WhiteHat Sentinel Baseline Edition (BE) Enterprise, a comprehensive, turnkey first-step to creating a Web security program whether a company has 100 or 10,000 websites. Sentinel BE Enterprise combines Web asset identification and risk-profiling with error-free vulnerability assessment to deliver the critical Web security reporting and vulnerability management that protects vital corporate and customer data.

By identifying all of an organization's Web applications and assessing the importance of each application's function, e.g. a credit card information processor, Sentinel BE Enterprise provides the baseline for a streamlined Web security program that protects business- and user-critical applications first. Using Sentinel BE's results, companies can prioritize and make informed decisions about their security programs, such as whether to deploy Web application firewalls, invest in developer training or increase remediation based on business needs and resources. Additionally, Sentinel BE Enterprise gathers vulnerability data free of false-positives, helping companies establish metrics to measure their security program's success. Companies can now track common vulnerabilities, remediation percentages, remediation rate and the likelihood of occurrence with specific vulnerabilities.

This data enables companies to:

  • Discover Web application presence and determine attack surface
  • Perform a baseline assessment to determine current vulnerability risk
  • Accurately and resourcefully plan next steps in an organization's Web security program
  • Track, guide and measure the progress of security initiatives

"Web application security is increasingly important for companies of all sizes, and identifying websites along with their risk is the first step toward a solid security program that ultimately saves companies money," said Ravi Iyer, vice president of product management, WhiteHat Security. "By offering Sentinel BE Enterprise, WhiteHat streamlines the website inventory process and helps companies prioritize Web security, bringing security initiatives in-line with business results."

Built to scale, Sentinel BE Enterprise can scan and assess thousands of websites simultaneously without impacting a Web application's performance. Based on a SaaS platform, WhiteHat Sentinel is easy to deploy and allows companies to manage website security through a single, intuitive platform with an unlimited number of user licenses. When vulnerabilities are discovered, WhiteHat's Threat Research Center (TRC) experts conduct on-demand verification of all vulnerabilities. WhiteHat Sentinel Services also include access to experts for vulnerability questions or remediation guidance.
