It will be really interesting to see how this acquisition squares up to other security testing applications. The very fact that HP are bringing this function into their suite of software testing tools and business process optimization tool set is an interesting one though. It begs the bigger question should the software test team be skilled enough to complete effective security testing in the first place. My initial reaction would be that the core test team should focus on functionality of a product under test. Performance and security testing (where specialist skills and tool sets are required) should be sub contracted to specialists either within a company or outsourced.
