West Virginia University
West Virginia University (WVU) is a public research university in Morgantown, West Virginia. Founded in 1867 as a public, land-grant institution, today the university enrolls approximately 33,000 students at campuses throughout the state. The university offers 193 bachelor's, master's, doctoral and professional degree programs through its 15 colleges.
WVU sought to provide developers across the university with a standard, centralized solution for scanning web applications for vulnerabilities.
IBM® Security AppScan® Enterprise software enables WVU to perform concurrent scans and provide users with a web-based solution for identifying and fixing security issues.
WVU has performed increasing numbers of scans each year, but the number of vulnerabilities identified has decreased by an average of 60 percent, demonstrating an improvement in web application quality.
Watch how WVU protects its sensitive information.
