WhiteHat visiting Miami and Houston (Feb 3 & 4)

We're continuing to crisscross the country visiting many cities across the U.S. helping to further the awareness of Web application security. One of the ways we do that is by organizing free lunch & learn events. We invite a small group of 15 - 30 enterprise infosec people from the area to join in some networking, learn a few things about Web security, and ask questions over a nice meal at hotel. It’s a lot of fun and not a bad way to spend an afternoon. Unfortunately I’m unable to make it to Miami and Houston, but our CEO (Stephanie Fohn) will be in attendance. For those interested the program, location, and registration details are below:

At this event, you will learn about advancements in protecting and securing Web applications from attacks. Stephanie Fohn, Chief Executive Officer, WhiteHat Security will open the program and discuss the myths surrounding Web application security. In addition, David Nester, Director of Solutions Architecture, WhiteHat Security, will present the sixth installment of the WhiteHat Website Security Statistics Report, providing a one-of-a-kind perspective on the state of website security and the issues that organizations must address to avert attack. 

We will then present a live demonstration of a revolutionary new solution that closes the loop from Web application vulnerability detection to remediation – an integrated solution delivering TOTAL website security. F5 Networks Security Systems Architect, Ty Morton and WhiteHat Security Director of Solutions Architecture, David Nester will offer a first look at "virtual patching," an exciting new concept in website vulnerability management.

This solution:

  • Closes the loop from vulnerability detection to remediation
  • Increases security via WhiteHat's rapid identification and reporting of website vulnerabilities
  • Ensures highly targeted vulnerability remediation (virtual patching) via F5 BIG-IP®
  • Application Security Manager (ASM)
  • Delivers one-step PCI 6.6 Compliance
