FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

OWASP Foundation Welcomes Contrast Security as Premier Corporate Member

With a Mission to Empower Any Organization to Secure Themselves, Contrast Security Contributes to OWASP to Make the World’s Software More Secure

Bel Air, MD – January 13, 2015 – The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), a worldwide not­for­profit charitable organization focused on improving the security of software, is pleased to welcome Contrast Security, creator of the world’s fastest application security software as a sponsor.

OWASP is an open community of over 42,000 participants dedicated to enabling organizations to conceive, develop, acquire, operate, and maintain applications that can be trusted. All of the OWASP tools, documents, forums, and chapters are free and open to anyone interested in improving application security. OWASP does not endorse or recommend commercial products or services. Instead, we allow our community to remain vendor neutral with the collective wisdom of the best individual minds in application security worldwide.

“11 years ago we helped found OWASP to spur innovation and eliminate application security risks, which is now the single greatest risk to enterprises today,” said Jeff Williams, co­founder of both OWASP and Contrast Security. “Contrast is proud to continue this effort on two major fronts by both supporting the OWASP community directly and delivering effective technologies that empower organizations to quickly and accurately protect themselves against attacks on the software that drives their business.”

In addition to their membership, Contrast Security supports several OWASP conferences, including our recent OWASP AppSec USA 2014 Conference in Denver, CO and the upcoming OWASP AppSec California in Santa Monica, CA. All of our AppSec USA 2014 conference talks are available for free on our conference site here: http://2014.appsecusa.org/2014/about/live­streaming/. Contrast also supports and participates in various OWASP projects, chapters, and activities.

“Our Corporate members provide significant commitment to the OWASP mission with volunteer support as well as one­third of our funding. We are thrilled to have Contrast Security as a Premier Corporate member,” stated Kelly Santalucia, Membership & Business Liaison of the OWASP Foundation. “Contrast Security’s contributions toward our AppSec USA 2014 event demonstrated strong support for our global initiatives, and we are hopeful that others will follow their lead in giving back to the community.”
