"TEAM Academy helps developers write secure code and more efficiently remediate vulnerabilities - thereby reducing the time to fix existing security problems and reducing the number of problems in future builds." Jason Taylor, CTO, Security Innovation
Wilmington, MA (PRWEB) February 11, 2014
Leveraging its history as an application security consultancy and trainer, Security Innovation announced the availability of TEAM Academy, a unique and innovative approach to application security education. Instead of training being a one-time event, TEAM (Training, Education And Mentoring) Academy combines the foundational training of our TEAM Professor eLearning with “just-in-time” implementation best practices of the TEAM Mentor secure software knowledgebase. This comprehensive approach gives each development team member the knowledge they need, when they need it, to build security into their application throughout the software development lifecycle.
Now that Security Innovation’s 15 years of expert research and assessment knowledge available in a single platform, organizations can cost-effectively bolster software security to meet the requirements of secure coding best practices and standards compliance. With the most comprehensive content in the industry, any IT or Development Team with varying skills level can immediately benefit from TEAM Academy.
“TEAM Academy helps users create secure software throughout the development process,” said Jason Taylor, CTO of Security Innovation. “Engineers rely on it to write secure code and to more efficiently find and remediate vulnerabilities, thereby reducing the time to fix existing security problems and reducing the number of security problems in future builds.”
TEAM Academy currently integrates with popular Static/Dynamic Analysis Security Testing (SAST/DAST) and development tools including HP Fortify, Checkmarx, Eclipse, and Visual Studio. By mapping prescriptive vulnerability remediation guidance and application security best practices to tool findings, developers can more quickly address vulnerabilities, embed security into their software, and significantly boost productivity.
ABOUT TEAM ACADEMY
TEAM Academy comprises 4,500 searchable guidance assets, over 60 eLearning courses, and is licensed to more than 300,000 users.
