Hyperic, a multi-platform, open source IT management solution provider, has enhanced the security of its Hyperic HQ IT management platform with a comprehensive code audit, courtesy of Fortify Source Code Analysis.
The audit, together with the addition of Fortify Source Code Analysis to Hyperic’s development cycle, significantly increases the value of Hyperic HQ to the enterprise.
With this announcement, Hyperic is the first open source IT management provider to offer a platform that meets the same enterprise security checkmarks as the “Big 4” vendors while incorporating the open source benefits of cost and scalability.
“Hyperic HQ can manage virtually any operating system, web server, app server and database server, and can be extended to manage just about any kind of application. As such, it was critical that we provide security across the layers,” said Javier Soltero, President and CEO of Hyperic. “Fortify was a clear choice because of their deep experience securing enterprise software, and their understanding of how security fits into the software development lifecycle.”
By embedding Fortify within its software development process, Hyperic is able to deliver a more secure product by discovering, prioritizing and fixing security vulnerabilities before they become issues.
The Fortify Source Code Analysis Suite enables companies to identify, track and fix security vulnerabilities in software code before software is deployed, mitigating the overall risk of dangerous security breaches. As the industry’s only cross-tier source code security analysis product, it can follow data paths in pursuit of security vulnerabilities across tiers, regardless of programming language.
Fortify Source Code Analysis has been built into Hyperic’s software development process, ensuring that all existing and future Hyperic users will have access to industry-leading security across the stack as part of their IT management solution.
