Washington, D.C. – September 18, 2013 – Orasi Software, an Atlanta-based quality assurance software reseller and professional services company, today announced it will be exhibiting at HP Protect 2013, the 9th annual HP security user conference being held September 16-19 in Washington, D.C. Orasi is an authorized reseller of HP Fortify On Demand and an HP Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) reseller and consultant, and will show attendees not only how to secure their applications but how to build security into ALM, making it integral to the process.
“One of the great challenges companies are facing when developing in-house software is assigning sufficient importance and resources to security testing,” said Orasi President and CEO Nick Kavadellas. “By helping customers achieve the best results from HP ALM and adding HP Fortify On Demand to their lineup, companies can meet and surmount that challenge head on.”
As part of the leading HP Fortify portfolio of solutions, HP Fortify On Demand is a cloud-based managed service that helps enterprises secure their software by identifying and preventing security vulnerabilities. HP ALM offers a powerful single repository for application teams to collaborate, plan, build and accelerate delivery of secure, reliable applications. When used in tandem, the two solutions help enterprises develop an end-to-end methodology for integrating security into the entire ALM process.
Orasi has long been a proponent of building security into the ALM process―establishing security requirements and milestones at project inception alongside functional and performance requirements and then keeping it in focus throughout the process until testing is complete. Benefits of such an approach include:
- Ensuring QA teams adhere to security requirements in the course of their ongoing processes rather than treating security as an afterthought.
- Identifying and correcting vulnerability defects much earlier in the development cycle, reducing cost and risk to the enterprise.
- Maximizing operational security while satisfying the demands of compliance auditors.
“The 2013 Global Information Security Workforce Study from research firm Frost & Sullivan indicated that security is still the primary challenge for companies building software applications,” said Kavadellas. “Security professionals know applications present the largest attack surface for enterprises, but application developers continue to view security as an afterthought. With HP ALM, HP Fortify On Demand and Orasi on their teams, developers will find it much easier to give security the attention it deserves.”
