Brian Maccaba will look at how Runtime Application Self Protection (RASP) can reduce application risk scores by 90-95%

CORONANDO, CA – 27 Oct, 2015 – 

WHO: Brian Maccaba, Waratek CEO, is a serial entrepreneur with a track record for identifying and bringing to market disruptive technologies for the financial services industry. He led Cognotec to develop AutoDeal, a pioneering Web-based foreign exchange trading platform that was adopted by more than sixty banks worldwide. Mr. Maccaba has led Waratek through the transition from Research and Development to live deployment, where Waratek was voted ‘Most Innovative Security Solution’ at RSA 2015.

WHAT: Banks and financial services organizations rely heavily on web-facing applications. This makes them a popular target for cyberattacks via SQL Injection, zero day malware and unpatched vulnerabilities. In this session, the CEO of RSA Innovation Sandbox winner Waratek will look at how security application testing tools (SAST) such as Veracode, Checkmarx and HP Fortify are used to identify faults, but still leave the application vulnerable for potentially long periods of time until manually fixed. Mr Maccaba will look at a new approach that integrates SAST with Runtime Application Self Protection (RASP) to automate the complete lifecycle of vulnerability detection, remediation and validation of the virtual patch’s efficacy.

Attendees will learn:

• Why current approaches to application protection including static code analysis, application development best practices and security devices including Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) are unable to keep up with threats

• How RASP can immediately resolve 80% of known security vulnerabilities without patching the code

• Why a RASP solution based on Virtualization can detect and block attacks like SQL Injection without generating false positives, and can log all application activity for forensic investigations and compliance auditing
