Codenomicon Rolls Out Security Service

CSaaS offering provides pre-emptive vulnerability and fuzzing testing options
CUPERTINO, Calif. --(Business Wire)-- Apr 20, 2009 Codenomicon, Ltd., the leader in protocol robustness, vulnerability and fuzzing testing solutions, today announced its new CSaaS offering which allows the marketplace preemptive testing options without large capital investment.

The test and security industry is seeing strongly knowledgeable and experienced resources disappearing from the service providers with the resultant testing being pushed down to the lead vendor. Traceability, tracking and management of test efforts as well as security vulnerabilities are increasingly harder for the service provider to ascertain and verify.

"Analogous to regular health checkups for humans, you need to test the security health of your application assets. The best way to achieve this is through tools that support auto-scheduling or on-demand services," says Dr. Chenxi Wang, principal analyst of security and risk management from Forrester Research.

Codenomicon's Security as a Solution (CSaaS) enables various industry sectors, including NEM's, TEM's, service providers, government and enterprise an ability to test for security, vulnerability, and robustness flaws before deployment while taking advantage of proven test methodologies carried out by skilled security experts. Customers can track the test process via an online collaboration environment speeding up and simplifying the quality assurance cycle allowing products and services to be brought to market more efficiently and of higher quality.

Testing has shifted from the service provider to the lead vendor; this trend has now extended to include testing being pushed down to the sub-vendors and the general outsourcing community, all in a supply chain ecosystem. Input from acknowledged test and security experts has been few and far between. Codenomicon's CSaaS solution helps the industry to address these issues while providing a low-cost framework for the vendors and the service provider to access cutting edge test methodology, collaborate on test cases, share test plans and results in a secure, multi-level user environment. "Web 2.0 meets the test industry in the CSaaS solution." said Andy Huckridge, VP of Marketing, Codenomicon.

Pricing for five protocol testing tools is $5000 for a five day professional services engagement with a Codenomicon Security engineer.
