Organizations Advance Best Practices in Developing Secure Software
LEXINGTON, Mass. – January 16, 2014 – Ipswitch File Transfer, the trusted choice for securely moving business information, has joined the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) to help secure web applications based on the critical need for improved application security. As a corporate sponsor, Ipswitch File Transfer is a partner in OWASP’s mission to make software security visible so individuals and organizations across the globe can make the most informed decisions about software security risks.
OWASP provides the most effective and innovative approaches to security because of its open, global community. The OWASP Top 10 list has become the industry standard in assessing web applications, and the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Council relies on it for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) certification.
Ipswitch File Transfer has long been a pioneer in adopting and advancing application security best practices, including rigorous penetration, dynamic and static code testing. With the recent launch of MOVEit 8.0, Ipswitch File Transfer became the first and only Managed File Transfer (MFT) company to support the OWASP Top 10 list.
“Security has always been a top priority in the development, engineering and testing of our file transfer solutions,” said Steve Staden, director of product management at Ipswitch File Transfer. “Our OWASP membership advances this commitment and sets the stage for additional Ipswitch security and compliance products. We’re proud to be a pioneer in the MFT industry with this support.”
The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a worldwide free and open community focused on improving the security of application software. Our mission is to make application security visible, so that people and organizations can make informed decisions about true application security risks. Everyone is free to participate in OWASP and all of our materials are available under a free and open software license. The OWASP Foundation is a 501c3 not-for-profit charitable organization that ensures the ongoing availability and support for our work from our members: Individuals, Organizational Supporters & Accredited University Supporters.
