  • 24 November, 2005 15:22

<p>SYDNEY, Australia - 24 November, 2005 – Symantec Corp. (NASDAQ: SYMC) today announced the availability of Symantec Secure Application Services, a new offering from Symantec Consulting Services that provides organizations with the ability to design, test, and maintain the security of business applications. Intended for organizations whose business is reliant upon data integrity in the applications they develop, use, or sell, Symantec Secure Application Services help clients reach goals for quality, reliability, time-to-market, and competitiveness.</p>
<p>These services provide unmatched expertise in helping organizations to meet regulatory requirements for protecting sensitive customer data, reduce potential business disruptions caused by exploitation of insecure applications, protect corporate reputation, and build brand trust. Symantec application security consultants leverage experience gained from testing thousands of applications for security vulnerabilities and through years of providing support in a wide variety of development environments.</p>
<p>“As the industry witnesses a rise in software related vulnerabilities, securing business applications has become a priority component in a company’s IT Risk management program.” said James Mobley, vice president Americas, Symantec Professional Services.</p>
<p>Symantec's latest Internet Security Threat Report released in September 2005 shows a continued rise in Web application vulnerabilities citing that 59 percent of all vulnerabilities found were Web application vulnerabilities. Furthermore, vulnerabilities in Web applications are an underestimated risk for many organizations due to the lower level of complexity in exploiting them and their increasingly widespread distribution.</p>
<p>Symantec consultants provide a programmatic approach for measuring and raising the overall level of application security by helping clients establish a complete, secure application development lifecycle. Symantec Secure Application Services include the following offerings:</p>
<p>* Application Development Lifecycle Review: Provides organizations with recommendations for establishing secure application development processes.
