HP has signed a definitive agreement to acquire SPI Dynamics Inc, which makes

web application security-assessment software and services. SPI Dynamics

technology, which is already integrated with HP Quality Center software, enables

customers to assess and identify security vulnerabilities along the entire

lifecycle of web appli­cations from development, quality assurance and

deployment. Customers can also use SPI Dynamics software to validate application

security and quality after deployment and to meet auditing and compliance

requirements, such as Sarbannes-Oxley.


Failure to test security defects or vulnerabilities before a business

application goes into production leaves confidential information within a

business-critical application at risk for security attacks and misuse.

“The number of vulnerabilities to business-critical applications has gone up

exponentially with the rise of web-based applications,” said Jonathan Rende,

VP-Products, Quality Management Software, HP. “HP Software provides solutions

that ensure that business applications run well. Now with the addition of SPI

Dynamics, we can make sure it is also secure,” he said.

Headquartered in Atlanta, the privately held SPI Dynamics has 140 employees

and serves more than 1,000 customers in the federal government, financial

services and healthcare industries, including HP.
