DXC named first global managed service provider for Micro Focus Fortify
on Demand

(NYSE: DXC), the world’s leading independent, end-to-end
IT services company, today announced the launch of DXC Applications
Security on Demand, a consumption-based applications security testing
service that helps clients identify and remediate vulnerabilities during
the development lifecycle.

According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, applications have
become the primary source for successful IT security attacks, with 90
percent of reported incidents exploiting defects in the design or code
of software.1 The average cost of a data breach was $3.62
million in 2017, and often created irreparable damage to the reputation
of a company.2

“Implementing security protection and assurance mechanisms throughout
the software development lifecycle is more important than ever. DXC
Applications Security on Demand provides this capability in a cloud
consumption-based model,” said Mike Klaus,
senior vice president and general manager, Application Services, DXC
Technology. “We address our clients’ application security early and
continuously through the entire lifecycle, reducing both cost and risk,

critical data to mitigate risk from unsecure applications.

at Micro Focus.
