CONTRAST SECURITY UNVEILS CONTRAST FOR .NET, ENABLING MICROSOFT .NET WEB APPLICATIONS TO CONTINUALLY SELF-TEST FOR VULNERABILITIES
New product enables consistent, enterprise-class security across Microsoft .NET web apps
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – July 30, 2014 – Contrast Security, a pioneer in application security solutions, today announced general availability of its award-winning application security solution for Microsoft .NET, called Contrast for .NET. Contrast for .NET enables Microsoft web applications to quickly and accurately self-test for vulnerabilities continually and in a fraction of the time and cost of legacy software testing technologies.
The release of Contrast for .NET delivers on Contrast Security’s commitment to provide automated, continuous application security coverage across all major enterprise application architectures. Installed on IIS servers, Contrast for .NET analyzes applications built on the Microsoft .NET framework for dangerous security vulnerabilities, such as the OWASP Top 10, during development, testing, and operations, including those running on the Microsoft Azure cloud service.
According to a recent report, a typical web application has over 22 serious, undetected security issues and can cost over $5,000 per vulnerability to find and fix. Since many large enterprises have hundreds of web applications, the total cost of securing all of their application can easily run into millions of dollars.
“Verizon’s Data Breach Investigation Report 2013 attributes 35 percent of all data breaches to application vulnerabilities,” said Jeff Williams, Co-Founder and CTO of Contrast Security. “Despite this, Microsoft users tell us that existing solutions are so costly to license and operate that they can only secure a small fraction of their applications. With Contrast for .NET, applications self-test, saving time and money, and freeing up experts from manually analyzing code to focus on higher impact security tasks.”
Contrast for .NET is available immediately at www.contrastsecurity.com.
