IBM has unveiled software to help midsize companies detect vulnerabilities that can lead to costly security breaches, to improve organisational productivity, and secure data while maintaining compliance.
IBM's IBM Rational AppScan Express Edition helps companies address both external and internal web security threats before they impact the business.
In addition, the software helps small and midsize businesses manage web security and comply with mandatory government regulations covering areas such as payment cards and health insurance.
Rational AppScan Express Edition, the latest software addition to IBM's Express Advantage portfolio, is an automated security testing system that enables users to test for web application security vulnerabilities. It also provides streamlined advice on how to fix these issues.
"IBM continues to offer comprehensive and cost-effective systems through the Express Advantage portfolio to our businesses' partners, enabling them to meet the needs of their customers as well as address their challenges," said Steve Solazzo, general manager at IBM General Business. "We are determined to ensure the safety of data for our business partner ecosystem and, in turn, their customers."
