Fortress Information Security, the nation’s leading cybersecurity provider for critical infrastructure organizations with digitized assets, today joined the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) as a silver sponsor. Fortress has allocated a portion of that sponsorship to support the CycloneDX project focused on promoting a lightweight Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) standard for application security and supply chain component analysis.
OWASP is a nonprofit foundation that works to improve software security by making application security risks visible. OWASP activities include community-led open source software projects, over 250+ local chapters worldwide, tens of thousands of members, and industry-leading educational and training conferences.

“OWASP and the CycloneDX project are critical to making universal SBOM principles and standards a reality,” said Betsy Jones, chief operating officer of Fortress Information Security. “Bringing software developers and cybersecurity professionals together openly and collaboratively will foster the development of trusted SBOM solutions.”
Joined by Tony Turner, Fortress vice president of research and development and an OWASP chapter and project leader for over 10 years, Fortress utilizes multiple OWASP projects such as CycloneDX, SCVS, OWASP Risk Ranking methodology, and many others to secure critical infrastructure.
OWASP is an open community dedicated to enabling organizations to conceive, develop, acquire, operate, and maintain applications that can be trusted. All projects, tools, documents, forums, and chapters are free and open to anyone interested in improving application security.
