SPI Dynamics Announces Compliance Pack to Relieve the Burden of Achieving Legal and Regulatory Compliance for Web Applications a

ATLANTA, Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- S.P.I. Dynamics Incorporated, the experts in Web application security, announces the availability of the SPI Dynamics Compliance Pack, which helps customers address legal and regulatory compliance for Web applications and Web services. The Compliance Pack relieves the burden of achieving legal and regulatory compliance for Web applications through a combination of comprehensive application security assessments, customizable security policies and detailed compliance reporting. SPI Dynamics software testing products WebInspect(TM), QAInspect(TM) and the Assessment Management Platform (AMP(TM)) all include the new Compliance Pack.

"Many organizations have a difficult time keeping up with compliance efforts due to resource and budget constraints. It is a tremendous amount of work," said Erik Peterson, vice president of product management for SPI Dynamics. "By providing both detailed reporting capabilities and customizable policies, the SPI Dynamics Compliance Pack significantly reduces the work effort required to understand and address compliance issues in Web applications and Web services."

Laws and regulations usually include rules that require organizations to secure their Web applications. Some of the most common rules are to protect personal information, prevent denial of service attacks, control user access to sensitive data and disclose privacy policies. SPI Dynamics' comprehensive security software testing products include security assessment policies and reports designed for specific laws and regulations (see complete list below). SPI Dynamics' products run automated security checks against these requirements and produce reports tailored to each law and regulation's language and categorization. These policies are customizable so organizations can develop their own tests in accordance with the laws and regulations to which they must adhere. Existing SPI Dynamics customers will receive the Compliance Pack automatically through SmartUpdate(TM), which is included in all SPI Dynamics' products and provides automatic policy updates and the latest Web application vulnerability checks from SPI Labs research and development. SPI Dynamics will continue to add laws and regulations to the Compliance Pack and update existing laws and regulations as they change.

The Compliance Pack addresses the following legal and regulatory initiatives:

- 21CFR11 - Basel II - California Online Privacy Protection Act - California SB1386 - Canada Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) - Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) - Data Privacy Directive (EU 1995/46/EC) - Directive on Privacy and Electronic Communications (EU 2002/58/EC) - Director of Central Intelligence Directive 6/3 - Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) - Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA) - Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA) - ISO 17799 - Japan Personal Information Protection Act - NIST 800-53 - North America Electric Reliability Council (NERC) - OWASP Top 10 - Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard - Safe Harbor - Sarbanes-Oxley Act - UK Data Protection Act

SPI Dynamics' Web application security assessment and software testing products are based on the industry's most robust Web application vulnerability database. In addition, these products offer proactive enterprise-wide security risk management and legal and regulatory compliance to cross-reference and encourage cooperation among the activities of developers, QA and security professionals in their efforts to find and fix Web application security issues to enable the production of more secure software.
