Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) December 03, 2012
Avantica Technologies, one of the largest Nearshore software engineering services companies in Latin America, announced today the expansion of its Security Assessment and Review Service to North America. Avantica’s Security Consultants will deliver the service to its start-up, Software 500 and industry customers.
Avantica offers two security testing services, “Security Assessment” and “Security Review”. Both services are designed to insure organizations harden information access from unauthorized users or systems; guarantee information availability to authorized users; and safeguard information accuracy.
“Our Security Assessment and Review Services are complementary, with the former reviewing the system under operational circumstances in order to identify vulnerabilities,” explained Juan Carlos Porras, Quality Assurance Manager at Avantica Technologies. “The Security Review Service instead uses code reviews and extensively analyzes design documents and architecture diagrams to identify security gaps and breaches.”
Managing information security has become more complex as the number of internal and external security threats increase. Third party security testing helps organizations intelligently assess threats and risks to information systems; develop risk mitigation strategies; and insure identified security risks remain within acceptable levels.
Recent surveys by security experts suggest that despite wide adoption of security tools, most organizations do not allocate significant budget or resources to insuring application security. Dark Reading, a publication that follows the security industry, wrote recently that lack of budget allocation is about to change. Nearly half of the companies it surveyed plan to increase IT security spending in 2013. Areas of particular focus will be mobile device management, endpoint data lead prevention, and application-aware firewalls.

- Security Mechanisms Review

The company’s deep experience in Nearshore driven distributed Agile software development and QA testing gives it a unique understanding of its customers’ engineering infrastructure - both on-premise and Cloud - software and systems layers. Avantica’s security services are targeted at both early stage software companies, the Software 500 and industry.
