NT OBJECTives, Inc. Announces the Launch of NTOMobile On-Demand Web Application Security Testing

New Security Service Conducts Comprehensive Mobile Application Testing for Stretched IT Teams

IRVINE, Calif., April 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NT OBJECTives, Inc., a leading provider of innovative, automated and accurate web application security solutions, announced today the launch of NTOMobile On-Demand powered by NTOSpider, a new security service specifically designed for mobile application testing, including mobile client native code and back-end web services. It delivers an easy way for security teams to complete comprehensive mobile application security testing without requiring additional software or testers.

The rapid proliferation of mobile applications has created significant challenges for resource constrained IT web application security teams. These teams often lack the time, tools and expertise to conduct effective secure mobile application testing. According to a recent Gartner report, "Most enterprises are inexperienced in mobile application security.  Security testing, if conducted at all, is often done casually — not rigorously — by developers who are mostly concerned with the functionality of applications, not their security.1" In this same report, the firm indicates that "through 2015, more than 75% of mobile applications will fail basic security tests.2"

NTOMobile On-Demand combines static analysis security testing (SAST), NTOSpider's dynamic application security testing (DAST) and expert pen testers to deliver comprehensive and effective mobile application security testing services. Leveraging the power of NTOSpider's DAST capabilities, NTOMobile On-Demand is the only mobile security solution available capable of effectively and automatically testing the web services that power mobile back ends and that leverage new technologies like REST, JSON and SOAP. NTOMobile On-Demand delivers more comprehensive web application security coverage of users' custom web service implementations than any other solution available.

"Tackling mobile application testing has been tough for security teams as it requires an investment in proper training and tools. Comprehensive mobile application security testing requires a combination of both static and dynamic analysis. Anything less than that is simply incomplete and ineffective," said Dan Kuykendall, co-CEO and CTO of NT OBJECTives.  "Some vendors allow security teams to choose between testing the source code, testing the services and pen testing mobile applications. NTOMobile On-Demand combines static and dynamic web application security testing with expert pen testers at a competitive price."

NTOMobile On-Demand is priced on a per year per application basis and supports the scanning of the mobile client application using a combination of source code analysis; back-end web services APIs using dynamic analysis and expert pen testing. The service supports mobile application security testing of iOS and Android devices.

The addition of NTOMobile On-Demand mobile application testing service is just one of several recent product and service innovations released by the company.  The company recently announced that its NTOSpider web application security scanner is the first of the application scanners to effectively introduce automated security testing of complex application workflows, including shopping carts and registration sequences, delivering more automation, accuracy and scalability than other application scanners.  

Also, the company announced last month the integration of NTOSpider with browser automation tool, Selenium, allowing web application security teams to automatically detect security defects earlier in the software development lifecycle, such as during the nightly build process, improving enterprise web security with minimal additional costs and without supplementary assistance from developers and/or QA teams.

Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
The dynamic nature of the cloud means that change is a constant when it comes to modern cloud-based infrastructure. Delivering modern applications to end users, therefore, is a constantly shifting challenge. Delivery automation helps IT Ops teams ensure that apps are providing an optimal end user experience over hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud environments, no matter what the current state of the infrastructure is. To employ a delivery automation strategy that reflects your business rules, making r...

Cloud Governance means many things to many people. Heck, just the word cloud means different things depending on who you are talking to. While definitions can vary, controlling access to cloud resources is invariably a central piece of any governance program. Enterprise cloud computing has transformed IT. Cloud computing decreases time-to-market, improves agility by allowing businesses to adapt quickly to changing market demands, and, ultimately, drives down costs.
There is a huge demand for responsive, real-time mobile and web experiences, but current architectural patterns do not easily accommodate applications that respond to events in real time. Common solutions using message queues or HTTP long-polling quickly lead to resiliency, scalability and development velocity challenges. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ryland Degnan, a Senior Software Engineer on the Netflix Edge Platform team, will discuss how by leveraging a reactive stream-based protocol,...
We call it DevOps but much of the time there’s a lot more discussion about the needs and concerns of developers than there is about other groups. There’s a focus on improved and less isolated developer workflows. There are many discussions around collaboration, continuous integration and delivery, issue tracking, source code control, code review, IDEs, and xPaaS – and all the tools that enable those things. Changes in developer practices may come up – such as developers taking ownership of code ...

How is DevOps going within your organization? If you need some help measuring just how well it is going, we have prepared a list of some key DevOps metrics to track. These metrics can help you understand how your team is doing over time. The word DevOps means different things to different people. Some say it a culture and every vendor in the industry claims that their tools help with DevOps. Depending on how you define DevOps, some of these metrics may matter more or less to you and your team.

With continuous delivery (CD) almost always in the spotlight, continuous integration (CI) is often left out in the cold. Indeed, it's been in use for so long and so widely, we often take the model for granted. So what is CI and how can you make the most of it? This blog is intended to answer those questions. Before we step into examining CI, we need to look back. Software developers often work in small teams and modularity, and need to integrate their changes with the rest of the project code b...
