Fortify Software has launched its next generation hybrid security analysis technology for testing web applications.

According to the company, Hybrid 2.0, launched in collaboration with HP, enables teams across the application lifecycle to improve visibility into security risks, increase test accuracy and produce more secure web applications through new advances in correlating static and dynamic testing results. 

Hybrid 2.0 connects penetration test results directly to source code analysis results revealing hidden vulnerability relationships and exposing their root cause within the application source code. 

Barmak Meftah, chief products officer at Fortify Software, said: “Our next generation hybrid analysis technology offers customers a step forward in achieving their software security assurance goals.

“While other vendors offer point solutions or first-generation capabilities, Fortify and HP are delivering integrated technologies that enable businesses to more effectively reduce risk associated with insecure web applications.”

Jonathan Rende, vice president and general manager of business technology optimisation applications in the software and solutions organisation at HP, said: “Organisations want to reduce the incidence and costs of security risks in their applications. HP and Fortify's Hybrid 2.0 solution addresses the biggest application vulnerabilities, resulting in reduced business risk and lowered costs for clients.”

Hybrid 2.0 is delivered through the integrated solutions of HP assessment management platform, Fortify source code analysis and Fortify program trace analyser. This provides deep insight into application security by making visible the connection between issues discovered through dynamic and static testing mechanism.
