HP Boosts Application Security with Static and Dynamic Analysis
HP and Fortify have joined forces to combine the benefits of dynamic and static code analysis to better detect and repair vulnerabilities in software.
Detecting and fixing vulnerabilities in software can often be a complicated process. To help streamline that process, HP has come together with code analysis vendor Fortify to combine the benefits of dynamic and static code analysis.
HP (NYSE: HPQ) and Fortify have dubbed their solution Hybrid 2.0, as it is technology that leverages applications from both vendors and bridges the gap between penetration testing and vulnerability root-cause analysis within source code.
"Hybrid 2.0 brings together static analysis, the inside-out view, with dynamic analysis, the 'outside-in' view, and taking it to a new level," Jeff Morgan, product manager at HP software, told InternetNews.com. "We're actively linking dynamic and static processes through some new and unique technology, and that will drastically increase what we can do."
