Security Innovation Joins Microsoft Visual Studio Program

Security Innovation, an authority in application security assessment and training, announced today that it has joined the Microsoft Visual Studio Industry Partner (VSIP) Program. Security Innovation’s involvement in the program is based on its TeamMentor solution, the company’s real-time reference guide of secure software development standards, and its integration with Visual Studio 2010 via the CAT.NET static code analysis plugin.

TeamMentor is a SaaS (Software as a Service) product providing timely, consistent and prescriptive guidance to help security and development teams create secure software out of the box, with support for industry best practices, coding and architectural standards. It helps teams ease compliance to internal security policies, allowing for the creation and customization of security best practices and standards, while reducing overall application security risk.

TeamMentor has actionable guidance for every member of a software development team – program managers, architects, developers, testers/QA, and deployment managers – and its fully editable content provides coverage for a broad array of technology platforms, including .NET, Java, PHP, Mobile (iOS and Android), C/C++ and more. TeamMentor also maps secure coding activities to compliance requirements like the PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.)

TeamMentor v3.2 is also available as a Visual Studio plugin that integrates Microsoft’s CAT.NET static code analysis tool with TeamMentor’s security guidance. This gives security and development teams comprehensive remediation capabilities to expand the value and impact of static analysis scan results, and fix code vulnerabilities based on specific coding patterns to permanently eliminate problems in code moving forward.

“Security Innovation’s products provide great value to software development and security teams using Microsoft Visual Studio to build secure applications for today’s modern devices and platforms," said Tom Lindeman, director of the Visual Studio Industry Partner program at Microsoft. "We're excited to welcome Security Innovation into the VSIP program and further support Visual Studio developers by partnering with providers of beneficial, integrated solutions."

Security Innovation is participating in a Microsoft webinar entitled, “Streamline the Fix: Diminish the Impact of Software Vulnerabilities through CAT.NET and TeamMentor Integration in Visual Studio,” on February 25 at 9:00 AM PST/12:00 PM EST. Dinis Cruz, Principal Security Engineer at Security Innovation, and Chief Architect of TeamMentor will demonstrate the key use cases of TeamMentor, and show how teams can leverage this free plugin to identify, verify and fix vulnerabilities in software code.
