WhiteHat Security and RSI Partner to Offer First One-stop Solution for Identifying and Remediating Application Security Threats

Sponsored by Businesswire

, the leading application security provider committed to
securing digital business, today announced that it has partnered with Rural
Sourcing Inc.
, the leading provider of US-based IT
outsourcing services, to offer the industry’s first one-stop
solution to identify and remediate application level exposures.

The two companies will combine the comprehensive, SaaS-based WhiteHat
Application Security Platform with Rural Sourcing’s vulnerability
remediation services to alleviate the challenges of DevSecOps and help
organizations enjoy the benefits of digital transformation without the
security headaches.

“Companies looking to secure their digital business are acutely aware of
application level vulnerabilities but lack the resources to identify and
fix them in a timely manner,” said Derek Perry, vice president,
Innovation at Rural Sourcing. “Whether utilizing inhouse or offshore
resources, there are significant challenges to overcome, which can be
addressed by sourcing IT resources onshore. WhiteHat and Rural Sourcing
bring a unique combination of technology and talent, which can identify
and remediate application-based threats, ensuring a company’s digital
business is properly defended.”

The WhiteHat Application Security Platform provides the services
required to secure the entire software lifecycle (SLC) from the
development/test phase through deployment and operation. The
technologies include 1) software
composition analysis (SCA)
, which identifies where reusable
components are within applications and detects any vulnerabilities
present, 2) static
application security testing (SAST)
for scanning source code of the
most commonly-used programming languages, identifying vulnerabilities,
and providing actionable vulnerability reports, and 3) dynamic
application security testing (DAST),
which continuously scans
websites as they evolve, providing automatic detection and assessment of
code changes and alerting for newly discovered vulnerabilities.

The platform pulls from 18 years of data on application vulnerabilities
and more than 100 million verified attack vectors identified by the
WhiteHat Threat Research Center.

Now, the partnership with Rural Sourcing enables organizations to take
application security one step further. Joint customers will have access
to hundreds of Rural Sourcing’s application development experts that
scan the vulnerabilities identified by WhiteHat and implement the fix,
saving time and resources.

“The WhiteHat platform was designed to enable true DevSecOps and help
companies catch critical vulnerabilities in their code before it’s too
late,” said Debbie Klett, director of Channels, WhiteHat Security.
“While we’ve always provided guidance on remediating these issues, the
Rural Sourcing partnership will enable customers to leave that final
step in the hands of some of the industry’s top experts, so they can
focus on growing their business. We are thrilled to begin this joint
effort in making application security more accessible for all

This integration is now available through the companies’ direct sales
teams and through the WhiteHat
Security Partnership Program
’s DevSecOps Level 2 and 3 partners in
the U.S. and EMEA.

Both companies have recently garnered significant industry recognition.
Rural Sourcing was named a Gartner “Cool Vendor,” and WhiteHat won three
categories from Cyber Defense Magazine’s 2019 InfoSec Awards for Best
Product, Web Application Security; Most Innovative, Software Security
Tools; and Best Product, Application Security Testing; was named a
Contender in The Forrester Wave™: Software Composition Analysis, Q2
2019; and its partner program was given a five-star rating in CRN’s 2019
Partner Program Guide.
