Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) October 16, 2006

ComSec, Inc. and S.P.I. Dynamics, Inc. are engaging customers to proactive mitigation of security vulnerabilities by integrating quality application analysis early-on in project life cycles. From inception through production deployment organizations can now effectively and efficiently assess the security of their web-based applications. ComSec brings the IT framework and industry knowledge while SPI Dynamics provides the world-class application analysis tool sets. Customers are empowered to satisfy the new PCI regulations while improving the security of their online applications.

ComSec continues to strategically assist organizations with information security and regulatory compliance. As organizations develop code, or increase accessibility of internal systems, web-based application security continues to be a gain focus. “We are very happy to be joining forces with the leaders in web-application testing and secure coding practices. Security is a result of proactive assessment, effective management, and comprehensive training,” said Jeromie Jackson, CEO of ComSec. ComSec focuses on best-practice frameworks and risk-centric remediation. Improving the quality of information systems is key to aligning business and technology, as well as reducing cost and risk.

Version 1.1 of the PCI standards mandate organizations have independent review of custom applications. Initially this will be a best practice and will become a requirement by June 30, 2008. This is unprecedented amongst the deluge of current regulations. PCI has been seen as a leading-edge, demanding regulation. This regulation is one which should have significant impact on the quality of applications supporting credit-card based transactions. As the other regulatory standards mature we expect others to adopt similar practice. ComSec provides independent web-application security assessment, and assists with the integration of countermeasure tools into development environments.
