In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
• A distinctive approach: Every vulnerability identified by WhiteHat Sentinel is manually verified for accuracy by a security expert in the Threat Research Center (TRC). WhiteHat Sentinel is the only solution in the industry that addresses vulnerabilities through this method and it is this unique method that allows us to deliver near zero false positives.
• Help quantify the risk: No other vendor is capable of identifying where your applications are vulnerable and tell you in very real financial terms the risks you are facing and your needed security investment. We arm security teams with the information they need to get eye-to-eye with business stakeholders. WhiteHat Sentinel has gathered enough data and analysis to provide numerous metrics and reports to allow an organization to determine their risk posture and compare them with their industry peers.
• The right balance: For a security solution to truly be a “solution,” it must balance the symbiotic relationship between People, Process and Technology. For WhiteHat Security, this is our Threat Research Center, Vulnerability Assessment Process and the Sentinel platform. Independently, WhiteHat is the biggest and best in the business at doing this. Collectively, we are the only company that has all three working in conjunction, allowing us to execute on our mission, protect our customers, and the web at large.
WhiteHat Sentinel is a SaaS platform that enables your business to quickly deploy a scalable application security program across the entire SDLC. By combining a scalable application scanning platform with the world’s largest Threat Research Center (TRC), Sentinel identifies where you are vulnerable with near zero false positives. Sentinel provides customers with the most intelligent, risk-based, and effective solution that can scale to meet any demand.
WhiteHat Sentinel has three offerings:
1. WhiteHat Sentinel Dynamic: WhiteHat’s Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) offering, is an easy to deploy cloud based platform that can concurrently scan an unlimited number of sites without slowing you down. All vulnerabilities identified are manually verified by the security experts in WhiteHat’s TRC, virtually eliminating false positives. Offering true continuous assessment, Sentinel Dynamic constantly scans your website as it evolves, offering an “always-on” risk assessment.
2. WhiteHat Sentinel Source: WhiteHat’s Static Application Security Testing (SAST) offering, scans your entire source code, identifies vulnerabilities and provides detailed vulnerability descriptions and remediation advice, as well as precise, ready-to-implement, remediation solutions for certain vulnerabilities.
3. WhiteHat Sentinel Mobile: WhiteHat’s cutting-edge mobile application security testing employs a combination of dynamic and static automated scanning, as well as manual mobile assessments by the expert security engineers of our Threat Research Center. WhiteHat’s offerings are easily integrated across the mobile security spectrum to meet the specific needs of your business.
The WhiteHat Security TRC is a dedicated team of the industry’s top security experts who provide ongoing verification of all vulnerabilities, virtually eliminating false positives. Operating as an extension of your security team, our team of experts enables you to focus on remediation and your overall security posture. This one-of-a-kind team ensures that your application security program is effective and efficient by providing verification of vulnerabilities that cannot be accomplished by scanners alone.
