IBM unveils web application security protection

IBM has introduced software to help customers protect their business from web application security attacks.

IBM has introduced software to help customers protect their business from web application security attacks.

The first release of IBM Rational AppScan is based on a web application security technology acquired by IBM from Watchfire earlier this year.

IBM said web applications are high value targets for hackers, yet many organisations have a difficult time tackling security due to a lack of application security knowledge, and the size and complexity of today's websites that incorporate the latest in Web 2.0 technology.

Businesses need automated system capable of identifying and protecting applications from these weaknesses, said IBM.

IBM Rational AppScan identifies, validates and reports on application security vulnerabilities, and incorporates new features and reporting methods for security auditors.

It will be available on 19 November.
