Micro Focus Fortify enables automated end-to-end application security testing, yielding safe software with reduced vulnerabilities. It seamlessly integrates into CI / CD pipelines, and is highly scalable throughout your business. Fortify also focuses on actionable results, picking up on security flaws directly within the IDE and generating real-time analysis.

Simply put, our offshore consultants use Micro Focus Fortify to detect flaws in your applications before they cause problems. Fortify is central to our SAST / DAST approach, which you can read more about here.


Our specialist Security Testing Accelerator helps to augment our work with Fortify, having been specifically constructed to detect serious security vulnerabilities and threats.

It is designed to detect the OWASP Top Ten, the most critical security risks to web applications:

  • Injection
  • Broken authentication
  • Sensitive data exposure
  • XML External Entities (XXE)
  • Broken access control
  • Security misconfigurations
  • Cross Site Scripting (XSS)
  • Insecure deserialization
  • Using components with known vulnerabilities
  • Insufficient logging and monitoring

At the touch of a button, the Accelerator will automatically scan the application, identify any security vulnerabilities and produce a report with remediation steps to avoid potentially catastrophic security breaches. It alleviates the requirement for costly security experts, who often undertake lengthy and complex analysis.
