HP Application Security Center

Find web application security vulnerabilities during every phase of the software development lifecycle

Application quality includes not only functionality and performance, but also web application security. While some security vulnerabilities exist in your web server or application infrastructure, at least 90 percent of those vulnerabilities exist in the web application itself. To address web application security, you must treat these security vulnerabilities as defects. As such, application security must be incorporated into your existing quality management practices within the software development lifecycle.

HP Application Security solutions enable your developers, quality assurance (QA) teams and security experts to successfully conduct web application security testing and remediation. This sophisticated, scalable, web application security solution helps you find and fix security vulnerabilities for web applications throughout the application software development lifecycle.
