SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 24 /PRNewswire/ — WhiteHat Security, Inc., a leading provider of website vulnerability management services, today announced that webMethods has selected WhiteHat Sentinel as its website vulnerability management solution. WhiteHat Sentinel will provide ongoing assessments to webMethods' websites to help ensure the security of proprietary customer and corporate information at all times.

webMethods provides business process integration to more than 1,500 of the world's largest corporations and government agencies. The Company's flagship product suite, webMethods Fabric, is the only integrated platform to deliver both service oriented architecture (SOA) and business process management (BPM).

As the number and scope of website vulnerabilities escalates, with 8 out of 10 sites open to attacks, the lack of industry standards or processes regarding website security has opened the door to hackers and made it more of a challenge for enterprises to thwart their attacks. webMethods is proactively addressing the issue of website security by continuously assessing its key customer portal, webMethods Advantage, for these issues with WhiteHat Sentinel.

"Our customer commitment includes protecting proprietary data and safe- guarding our users against all known vulnerabilities or attacks," said Jeremy Epstein, Senior Director of Product Security, webMethods. "WhiteHat Sentinel provides us with highly comprehensive, and equally important, accurate website vulnerability coverage. We understand the importance of application level security and are pleased to offer our customers a safe extranet environment."

Only WhiteHat Sentinel looks for all 24 classes of vulnerabilities identified by the Web Application Security Consortium's (WASC) threat classification.

"With a landscape in which new Web attack vectors appear every week, it is vitally important for companies to step up and take control of their website security. WhiteHat commends webMethods' commitment to protecting customer data," said Stephanie Fohn, CEO, WhiteHat Security. "We're pleased that webMethods has chosen WhiteHat Sentinel as a key component of its rigorous security program and recognizes WhiteHat's dedication to offering a service that keeps pace with this dynamic environment."
