Vulnerability management vendor Veracode, Inc. has announced the release of Veracode DynamicMP for critical vulnerabilities, a new application security verification service that the vendor says can rapidly scan multiple websites simultaneously to detect an SQL attack or other types of attacks.
The new service, debuting this week at the Black Hat 2011 hacker conference in Las Vegas, combines automated Web application vulnerability scanning with what the Burlington, Mass.-based vendor calls “elastic computing in the cloud” to provide a scalable vulnerability detection service that can simultaneously verify application security across thousands of sites.
The Veracode DynamicMP is said to allow companies to identify SQL injection or cross-site scripting (XSS) error-related security issues in their running Web applications across thousands of externally facing websites before hackers can exploit them. The service can produce results within hours or days.
Available immediately, Veracode DynamicMP is priced at $150 per website scanned, with a minimum of 500 sites, though, accelerated discounts apply based on volume.
