HP And IBM Try To Pull Security Testing Into The Mainstream

    Why Read This Report

    Recently, two major platform vendors announced acquisitions of security testing vendors: IBM announced its intent to acquire Watchfire on June 6, 2007, and HP announced its intent to acquire SPI Dynamics on June 19, 2007.

But will this approach take hold? It depends on whether these tools find appropriate end users, be they testers, developers, or security professionals.
