GrammaTech, a leading provider of software assurance tools and cyber-security solutions, has announced the availability of the CodeSonar Risk Dashboard as a key new capability that elevates security vulnerabilities and software quality to the executive level. This brand new capability for IT projects provides executives with an immediate read-out of the level of outstanding security risks in their projects. Thus, they receive data needed to improve decision-making concerning security investments.
The Risk Dashboard allows for the expression of industry standard and project specific metrics based on the warnings reported by CodeSonar. These metrics result in a visualisation of the outstanding risk in a project. The Risk Dashboard supports both source and binary analysis. It can be used to measure risks during the software development phase and in deployment environments.
“Our customers have relied on CodeSonar to analyse source code during the Software Development Life Cycle for many years.” said Mark Hermeling, Senior Director of Product Marketing at GrammaTech. “The Risk Dashboard, combined with CodeSonar Binary Analysis, gives deployment teams a way to measure outstanding risks in applications before deploying these applications into their IT or embedded environments. This is an exciting new capability that will transform the way software is assessed and will lead to more secure software systems.’
The Risk Dashboard will be available in the CodeSonar 4.5 upgrade to licensed customers and provides industry standard metrics that can be customised to individual project needs. CodeSonar 4.5 will be available in the second calendar quarter of 2017.
