OpenText beefs up secure information management in security audits

Business software vendor OpenText has launched the second generation of its advanced cybersecurity auditing tool, Fortify Audit Assistant.

Prentiss Donohue, cybersecurity executive vice-president at OpenText, said in the announcement that the predictive analytics and machine learning (ML) powered audit assistant would be more accurate versus the first generation.

“Those pioneering efforts paved the way for us to derive 10 years of data from human experts and turn them into predictive models that are more accurate compared to the previous generation’s models, improving efficacy in auditing by reducing false positives up to 90%,” Donohue said.

Enterprises would benefit from a greater “depth of information” within their own software assurance programmes, he added. Triaging and validating raw static analysis results is time-intensive for application security testing teams – and potentially expensive.

OpenText reiterated that developers are dealing with more complexity and threats in multi-cloud environments, making for pressure on application security that suggested better tools and practices were needed.

“Fortify Audit Assistant is OpenText’s solution for incorporating security at the beginning of the software development lifecycle, at code inception,” the vendor said.

Other announcements from OpenText in February include new features in OpenText Core Capture CE 24.1 for no-code custom workflows, and in OpenText Core Content cloud content management system, integratable with the likes of SAP, Salesforce, Microsoft 365, and Google Workspace.

OpenText offers applications targeting organisations’ need to develop insights and manage information, including in cloud environments.

Solutions include OpenText Secure Shell, which lets organisations take advantage of security protocols to protect data traffic over open networks, OpenText Gupta database application development products, solutions for querying and reporting such as OpenText Business Intelligence (OBTI), and OpenText Brava! Enterprise, a viewer which provides access to content in many formats or on different devices while preventing editing of a source file.

OpenText has also integrated DocuSign secure e-signature capabilities into its enterprise information management offerings.
