N-STALKER Technology Now Protected By U.S. Patent
N-Stalker technology has recently had its trademark registered in the USPTO – United States Patent and Trademark Office, an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce, which duly recognized the methodology designed and developed by the Brazilian-born software engineer Thiago Zaninotti that brought to the IT technology market a new approach for assessment of security applications throughout the web.
The patent #US 7,984,501 B2, published on July 19th, 2011 by the USPTO deems being N-Stalker’s exclusive property the new method for identification of vulnerabilities in Web applications, using as reference their technologic components.
For Thiago Zaninotti, the designer of the patented method so-called “Component-Oriented System and Method for Web Application Security Analysis”, the approved and registered patent now legally protects the methodology covering the approach coupled to the secure software development cycle, making it more efficient as far as its security tests and certification are concerned.
“Our N-Stalker scanner checks the web application resources as individual components in order to generate dynamic security verification rules which are more efficient for auditing of the target application”, says Thiago.
This outstanding technology has already been incorporated into the 2012 edition of the N-Stalker Web Application Security Scanner and it is equally shared by the RedeSegura system to manage security evaluation execution tests in web applications. RedeSegura itself is an innovative service which allows corporations to establish and maintain within their premises a management program for the safe cycle development for their web applications.
Thiago Zaninotti, the author of the registered patent, is a specialist in IT security systems, being one of the first Brazilian software engineers to be certified (as of 2001), with the CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security) certificate. Besides, Thiago has also acquired the following certifications: Security+ (US CompTIA), ISSAP (Information Systems Security Architecture Professional), CISM (Certified Information Security Manager) and CSSLP (Certified Secure Software Life-cycle Professional). He is also the founder and CTO of both N-Stalker and RedeSegura.
