cigitalivizlogoIDG Ventures-backed SaaS-based applications security testing provider, iViz Security has been acquired by the US-based software security services and solutions provider, Cigital Inc. Post acquisition, the Bangalore-headquartered company will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Cigital. Financial terms of the deal were undisclosed.

iViZ currently provides comprehensive application penetration testing through its cloud platform. This includes business logic security testing, which detects business flaws, unlimited application penetration testing, which tests apps/websites during every release, on-demand testing scheduling using its online portal and online vulnerability analytics, which provides a dashboard with a security overview. The company offers two plans, the standard pen test plan and a premium pen test plan, both of which offer a 15-day free trial.

With this acquisition, Cigital plans to leverage iViZ’s proprietary cloud platform and its technology to offer ‘3D Unlimited Application Security Testing’, which it claims will offer flexibility in the number of tests, depth of tests, and the number of apps tested. This platform will let organizations reallocate testing services as per business requirements, broaden the testing scope, offer a choice as to the depth of testing and offer a subscription-based predictable monthly expense. Penetration testing is currently considered mandatory for government regulations and compliance like PCI, HIPAA, SOX, ISO-27001 etc.

According to Cigital, integration of iViZ’s capabilities with its own is complete, and its ‘3D Unlimited Application Security Testing’, is available immediately. The company said it had incorporated iViZ user portal to provide its customers with a web-based interface to schedule scans and view results.

Cigital currently offers various software security services including, application development, architecture analysis, code review, mobile app security, software security practices etc., to clients across the globe. The company is headquartered in the US with regional offices in Europe and Asia.
