Hewlett Packard Enterprise cracks Fortify software at Seidenberg

HPE logoThe Seidenberg School was delighted to welcome Tom Ryan, from Hewlett Packard Enterprise, to come and provide training to our students at Pace University. In attendance were security professionals from the corporate sector as well as undergraduate and graduate students from the Seidenberg School. The training provided tremendous insight into Web vulnerabilities and how to prioritize threats.

Professor Hayes from the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems organized the training and was quoted as saying, “Hands-on training with professional security tools is paramount to the success of our students, especially given that many of those students have taken our online courses. It was heartening to see so many students attend, even before the semester has begun, in order to further their knowledge. Moreover, the participation of corporate IT professionals was an excellent opportunity for Pace students to network with industry experts and understand their challenges with Web security”.​

Juan Guzman, a Seidenberg graduate IT major, who attended the training, said, “The HPE Fortify Application training provided information on how insecure applications represent in the world of information assurance however, with the education acquired from Pace University Instructors, Prof. Darren R. Hayes and the latest approach in testing methodologies by Tom Ryan has proven that learning the latest information security is a never ending process. Thank you for the always enlightening path of knowledge”.

The HPE Fortify training was part of the Seidenberg School’s Security and Forensics Week.
