PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Switzerland and High-Tech Bridge have announced a joint business relationship to bring a new and innovative set of web application security services to their clients.
The joint business relationship will provide clients with access to High-Tech Bridge's innovative ImmuniWeb® application security testing service as part of PwC's market leading Threat and Vulnerability Management services.
The growing sophistication of global cybercrime requires a cost-effective, technically efficient continuous web application security testing and monitoring service available 24/7. This vital function is perfectly accomplished by ImmuniWeb®, an on-demand web application security testing platform developed and supported by High-Tech Bridge.
A ImmuniWeb® security assessment combines both a managed vulnerability scanning engine with manual penetration testing performed in parallel by experienced security auditors. This hybrid security testing technology detects the most complex vulnerabilities and guarantees zero false-positives in a manually-written assessment report. Assessment management is entirely web-based and is very flexible and simple to configure and manage. ImmuniWeb® also helps clients to achieve and sustain PCI DSS compliance requirements 6.6 and 11.3 for their web applications.
"We are delighted to join our efforts with PwC to deliver highly efficient and effective web application security testing for companies and organizations. Today, web applications remain the weakest point in corporate cyber defence and they require special attention. Combining our innovative award winning technology with PwC's experience will bring outstanding results to make the web a safer place. We look forward to continuing the innovation," said Mr. Ilia Kolochenko, High-Tech Bridge's CEO and ImmuniWeb® Chief Architect.
"Cyber-attacks on businesses are one of the top three concerns of CEOs today. The number of vulnerabilities in systems continues to grow. The PwC and High-Tech Bridge offering combines PwC's leading threat intelligence insights, risk assessment capability and operational management skills with the innovative ImmuniWeb® technical security testing service, helping our clients to better strategically align their investment in security to meet new and evolving cyber threats.
