San Francisco, CA and Wilmington, MA (PRWEB) November 15, 2012

Elanex, Inc., a leader in language translation services and technologies, and Security Innovation, Inc., a leader in application security announces they have partnered to localize TeamMentor™ and TeamProfessor™ eLearning products into Japanese and Spanish.

“As a trusted advisor to a Global 100 Japanese firm in need of localized training products for their application development teams, Security Innovation sought a professional localization services provider to partner with,” said Edward Adams, CEO of Security Innovation. “After a diligent search process, we selected Elanex for this important project. In fact, we were so impressed with the Elanex team that we asked them to localize additional products into both Japanese and Spanish. We look forward to a close collaboration with Elanex to help us open new markets and serve customers around the globe.”

IT security is of critical importance to all enterprises; yet, insecure software applications are the root cause of most data breaches. In fact, NIST (US National Institute of Standards and Technology) estimates that 92% of all security vulnerabilities exist in the software layer, not the network or system layer. The top recommended countermeasure to these systemic issues is developer education. Increasing application security expertise through standards and training is an important step in creating a high performance AppSec organization, and the need is an international one.

“We are really pleased to be selected by a company of Security Innovation’s industry stature and particularly to be entrusted to localize their flagship products. As a localization services provider, our job is to deliver high quality translation services to help our clients access international markets,” said Donald Plumley, CEO of Elanex. “By collaborating with Security Innovation we are proud of our role enabling their application security training products to be used by new customers in new markets and by doing so, contribute to improving IT security worldwide.”

According to The Ponemon Institute, there are serious gaps in perception between security practitioners and software developers about their own application security maturity and readiness. For example, in their 2012 study "Application Security Maturity" Ponemon uncovered:

  •     65% of surveyed developers do not test mobile applications in the production, development or quality assurance phases
  •     79% of developers reveal there is no formal process or only an ad hoc approach for building security into applications
  •     71% of developers state there is no mandate for remediating vulnerable software code
