IBM may have acquired WatchFire prior to HP acquiring SPI Dynamics, however HP started the acquisition process prior to IBM...IBM fast-tracked their acquisition so as to portray themselves as the trend setters. Interestingly, the founders of SPI Dynamics once worked for ISS, however parted ways when ISS declared it had no interest in addressing the Web Application Security Assessment market.

SPI Dynamics' WebInspect product has integrated with (certain) Web Application Firewalls for some years now, exporting data in AVDL (Application Vulnerability Description Language) standard so as to allow WAFs to import that data (e.g. NetContinuum Application Security Gateway).

Also, Spi Dynamic's DevInspect tool has provided static code analysis for some years now.

Good thing you're not a betting person ;)
