… detailed inventory of web-facing properties, which we can on-board into Sentinel for continuous scanning. By positioning RiskIQ and WhiteHat together, our channel partners can offer a comprehensive solution for dynamic application security testing.”
Sentinel is a SaaS platform that allows businesses to deploy a scalable application security program across the entire software development life cycle.
“WhiteHat is known for its ability to provide an extensive view of assets, and by partnering with our team, customers will have more visibility and an unobstructed view into their digital presence, making the pertinent data easy to see and, therefore, manage and protect,” said Lou Manousos, RiskIQ’s CEO. “Greater than 80 percent of data breaches are due to external threats, which means that even if you have an active approach to identify vulnerabilities you are only addressing a portion of the risk.”
A new study from Juniper Research found that spending on IoT cybersecurity solutions is set to exceed $6 billion globally by 2023. Spending by product and service providers (in consumer markets) and end-customers (in industrial and public-services markets) is set to increase nearly 300 percent during the forecast period.
The research forecasts that the rise of edge computing services to allow near-real-time IoT applications would present additional security challenges, which in turn will drive industry spend. It cited an increased attack surface as raising business risk. Meanwhile, the need to ensure data reliability would emphasize the need for life-cycle management and device security solutions.
“The interconnected nature of the IoT means that even innocuous devices like the connected fridge can become a threat,” said Steffen Sorrell, research author. “Vendors see that risk as low, while little has been done from a regulatory perspective to protect consumers.”
