Application Security, Inc. Announces Built-In Policy for FedRAMP Program as Part of Latest SHATTER Knowledgebase Release
Mar 5 13
Application Security, Inc. announced a new, built-in policy for FedRAMP as part of the SHATTER Knowledgebase KB 4.25 release. The policy will provide cloud service providers with a simplified process to become part of the Federal Risk and Authorization Program (FedRAMP). The Federal Risk and Authorization Program (FedRAMP) is a risk management program for large outsourced and multi-agency information systems established by the U.S. government. FedRAMP authorizes and continuously monitors IT services that are used by multiple federal departments and agencies, specifically cloud service providers. In order to be approved by FedRAMP, CSPs must continuously meet strict security guidelines. In order to be evaluated, an agency must sponsor the vendor's system/service and submit it to FedRAMP for review by a joint authorization board, which includes a FedRAMP Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO). Once a CSP is approved by FedRAMP, all federal agencies within the program are able to use the product and/or service. AppSecInc products, AppDetectivePro and DbProtect, now have a built-in policy for FedRAMP. Any Cloud Service Provider (CSP) or Third Party Assessor for FedRAMP (3PAO) can use this policy as the basis for their database security assessments. Proper database scanning is one of the requirements of the program; CSPs must provide database scans that show results for vulnerabilities, configuration issues, weak passwords, missing patches, access control concerns, and other issues that can lead to user privilege escalation. Database scanning will show data is safe from internal and external threats. AppSecInc products automate continuous scanning required by the FedRAMP certification process and maintenance of the annual re-certification process.
Application Security Releases AppDetectivePro
Oct 30 12
Application Security, Inc. announced the latest release of its database scanning tool, AppDetectivePro. Expanded capabilities and a new user interface provide security, risk and IT audit professionals with best-in-class database vulnerability, configuration and access control assessment. The new tool allows organizations to quickly and easily understand their security posture and capabilities to proactively remediate vulnerabilities and protect sensitive information. AppDetectivePro enables easy and repeatable database security assessments, capturing results for all database security issues, ranked by risk, and generating comprehensive and customizable reports. Organizations are able to view vulnerabilities affecting compliance regulations, misconfigurations, identity and access controls, as well as issues that lead to privilege escalation. AppDetectivePro provides a unique vulnerability assessment that allows for both a pen test and audit. Through a pen test scan, AppDetectivePro provides a detailed view of vulnerabilities that could be potentially exploited by an attacker through an "outside-in" view. For a complete security review, AppDetectivePro's audit scan provides a deeper analysis of vulnerabilities and issues that could lead to privilege escalation exploits through an "inside-out" analysis. Audit scans are performed needing only a read-only account on the database. Beyond vulnerability assessment, AppDetectivePro provides a deep analysis of database configurations. Backed by AppSecInc's SHATTER knowledgebase, the industry's most complete library of database vulnerability and configuration issues, AppDetectivePro provides a detailed view of configuration issues, patch levels, and OS-related database issues. TeamSHATTER's knowledgebase is updated on a regular basis through AppSecInc's ASAP Updates, ensuring that the most recent vulnerabilities can be identified and remediated.
