DevPartner SecurityChecker 2.0 Available
Compuware announced the general availability of Compuware DevPartner SecurityChecker 2.0. DevPartner SecurityChecker is a security assessment tool that accelerates the development of secure ASP.NET applications. DevPartner SecurityChecker helps achieve application security by automatically identifying security vulnerabilities through a combination of both white-box (code scanning and run-time analysis) and black-box (penetration testing) testing techniques, and pinpoints the location of the vulnerability in source code.
This new version of Compuware s security analysis tool offers full integration with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, enabling development and testing teams to improve the quality of their Microsoft ASP.NET Web applications by locating and fixing security vulnerabilities early in the application lifecycle.
New features and enhancements in DevPartner SecurityChecker 2.0 include:
- Full integration with Visual Studio 2005 with the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0.
- Reduction of false positive reporting.
- Improvements for creating and managing discovery maps.
- Improvements to existing SQL Injection, Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), and Parameter Tampering vulnerability detection.
- 30 new Integrity rules.
Compuware also offers organizations that require specific expertise a security assessment service for ASP.NET applications. This service combines the proficiency of Compuware IT professionals with the strengths of DevPartner SecurityChecker, allowing IT and development staffs to accurately assess the security vulnerabilities of an ASP.NET application.
Other Compuware products that currently support Visual Studio 2005 are DevPartner Studio 8.0 and DevPartner Fault Simulator 1.5. Compuware has plans to release an updated version of its functional testing tool, Compuware TestPartner, which will support and integrate with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team System.
