McLean, VA (PRWEB) October 23, 2006
Secure Software, a leading provider of application security services and automated technology for compliance in protecting the enterprise, today announced the company has become a Microsoft Certified Partner. The certification is recognition of Secure Software’s expertise with Microsoft technologies, coupled with demonstration of customer success. Secure Software lists industry giants CA and Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation among its customer base.
The certification follows a succession of Microsoft announcements in the past year including: membership in Microsoft’s SecureIT Alliance (http://www.secureitalliance.org), a community of developers working together to provide enhanced security solutions for the Microsoft platform, and participation in the Microsoft Visual Studio Industry Partner (VSIP) program as a premier-level partner. During the same timeframe, the company received a 2006 “Jolt” Productivity Award from Software Development magazine for its CodeAssure™ technology. Secure Software also received worldwide recognition through OWASP’s (http://www.owasp.org) adoption of CLASP™, a Comprehensive Lightweight Application Security Process methodology originated by Secure Software.
“Close integration with Microsoft technologies is an essential asset for any vendor supporting application security compliance in large enterprises. We are pleased to see Secure Software demonstrate this proven expertise on the Microsoft platform,” said Gerry Albert, group manager of the SecureIT Alliance.
“Working with Microsoft technologies as closely as we do clearly enhances customer confidence in our solutions. As new compliance standards emerge such as PCI for the financial services industry, it is a wonderful business advantage to be partnered with such a technology leader as Microsoft,” said Kevin Kernan, CEO of Secure Software.
