Scottrade Deploys Source-Code Analysis

Leading online brokerage Scottrade makes application security a priority with Fortify Software

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Fortify Software Inc., the market-leading provider of security products that help companies identify, manage and remediate software vulnerabilities to mitigate risks in enterprise security, today announced that Scottrade, a leading online investment company, is deploying the industry's most proven and widely used source code security analysis solution, Fortify(r) SCA, to protect its trading platforms.

"In financial services, security is job one," said Grant Bourzikas, Scottrade's Director of Information Security and Business Continuity. "Fortify SCA provides executives with the reports needed to gauge application risk level while allowing development teams to fix potential security and quality issues earlier in the coding process."

Scottrade is deploying Fortify SCA as an auditing tool at the beginning of its development process. Scottrade selected Fortify over other competitors because of the depth and accuracy of Fortify SCA when compared during head-to-head test audits, as well as the wide variety of languages, frameworks and operating systems it supports.

"Application security will be a big hot button for the next 10 years and we were looking for a strategic vendor to work with," Bourzikas added. "Fortify's tool was the clear winner in our product evaluation, but we were also impressed with their leadership in this space."
