Trend Micro Inc. announced Web App Security, a cloud-based service that provides vulnerability detection and protection of Web applications and the platforms they are deployed on throughout an organization.

The new service includes the ability to issue unlimited SSL certificates and can be calibrated to the specific security needs of each application, the company says.

"You can't get a clear picture of your vulnerabilities without both automated and manual testing, and you need to test the whole stack," Wendy Nather, research director of the Enterprise Security Practice at 451 Research, said in a statement. "Integrating all of this testing makes it much easier for the enterprise to be consistent and thorough in its risk assessments."

A part of the Trend Micro Cloud and Data Center Security Solution, the service provides detection capabilities across Web applications and the platform environments they are deployed on. Detection extends beyond vulnerabilities to include Web application malware checking and Web reputation management, giving organizations a complete picture of their Web security posture.

Web App Security also includes automatic protection at the platform level and native integration with leading Web application firewalls to provide a closed loop of protection, Trend Micro says. With an intelligent approach to Web application scanning that includes both automated and expert analysis, the company says, false positives can be avoided and organizations can focus on actual areas of concern, including regulatory compliance.
