Aspect Security Marks eLearning Curriculum Milestone With More Than 100,000 Modules in Use Worldwide

Web-Based Education Series Arms Developers With the Most Current Thinking Around Building Security Into Applications

COLUMBIA, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 12/17/12 -- Aspect Security, a pioneer in application security, today announced that more than 100,000 individual modules of its eLearning curriculum are in use by developers worldwide at many corporate entities, including giants in the financial, shipping and logistics, and airline industries, and large government agencies.

Aspect Security eLearning is a web-based series for developers, managers, testers and security architects that helps companies resist application security breaches by educating those involved in creating applications. Aspect Security's eLearning curriculum features 53 learning modules at three different levels of technical depth.

Each module leverages educational best practices for comprehension and retention. The modules are approximately 20 minutes in length and feature regular quizzes to aid in comprehension and retention. Now, with the addition a module dedicated to mobile application security, Aspect Security's eLearning curriculum offers a complete solution to application security education.

"We are very proud of our eLearning offering, which really stands alone in the industry for its breadth, levels of technical depth and suitability for deployment by even the most distributed global enterprise," said Andi McDowell, VP, Products and Administration, Aspect Security. "We put a great deal of effort into designing a curriculum and a deployment system to meet the needs of a wide range of organizations and raise the bar in the industry for application security education."

"Application security is the single greatest area of vulnerability for enterprise IT right now, and is largely a 'people problem' -- in our experience the single most effective way an organization can address this is to train developers in secure coding," said Jeff Williams, Aspect Security CEO and Co-Founder of the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP). "In this increasingly connected universe, developers need to be armed with the right knowledge about application security and how to address vulnerabilities so that they can write secure code from the outset."

Angel, global leader in enterprise, cloud-based, Interactive Voice Response (IVR) and call-center customer experience solutions, deployed Aspect's interactive eLearning modules for its secure application development training.

"PCI Level I certification was a huge achievement for us, and thanks to Aspect, the development team was well prepared for the process. With Aspect eLearning we were able to deploy a very cost-effective remote training solution that turned out to be more effective than the instructor-led options we explored," said Ian Macdonald, Senior Systems & Security Architect, Angel.
