Monrovia, CA (Vocus) May 6, 2008
Parasoft , a leading provider of solutions and services that deliver quality as a continuous process throughout the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC), announced today they will be featuring the next generation of application security solutions at JavaOne. Improving security without impacting productivity, Parasoft’s Application Security Solutions establish a continuous process that helps ensure security verification and remediation tasks are ingrained into workflow across every stage of the SDLC.
"As hackers move up the application stack, coordinating effective security best practices with testing and quality assurance approaches is key," said Melinda Ballou, Program Director for Application Life Cycle Management service at IDC, a research and advisory firm headquartered in Framingham, MA. "Providing metrics to help provide insight into success and failure also enables organizations to improve their security and quality strategies."
Parasoft Application Security Solutions establish and drive a daily process that automatically monitors policy compliance at all layers of the application stack, identifies vulnerabilities, and collects process metrics.
“We have seen a big emphasis on security audits recently. Audits are necessary, but true success in application security requires an in-line process to prevent security vulnerabilities and ensure that the application adheres to the organization’s security policy,” stated Wayne Ariola, VP of Strategy, Parasoft Corporation.
Developers secure code by simply responding to the reported tasks. To promote rapid remediation, each vulnerability detected is prioritized, automatically distributed to the developer who introduced it, then distributed to his or her IDE with direct links to the problematic code. Moreover, management gains real-time visibility into overall security status and processes, which allows teams to document improvements as well as determine what additional actions are needed to safeguard security.
Parasoft solutions for SOA Quality, Application Development Quality, and Outsourcing & Distributed Development will also be demonstrated at booth #612. In addition, Parasoft will be holding hourly raffles, distributing VIP Passes that allow select members of the Press/Media to attend Parasoft’s 20th Anniversary VIP Celebration, and much more.
