ShiftLeft released a new version of NextGen Static Analysis (NG SAST), including new workflows, purpose-built for developers that significantly improve security, while enhancing productivity.
Parasoft announced a new corporate division dedicated to helping the software testing needs of Federal, State, and Local Government Agencies.
With over 20 years of experience and success working with development and testing teams in the government and public services sector, Parasoft's newest division will be supporting government programs and initiatives that rely on successful deployments of highly secure, cost-effective modern systems. Parasoft helps these development and testing teams achieve their goals of high quality at speed.
Parasoft's new division aligns with Gartner's Market Insight: What U.S. Federal Government Buyers Want in 2018 report that states, "A policy shift recognizing that IT modernization and adoption of emerging technologies is not just good for productivity and cost control, it has also become a national security imperative."
The new division will provide development and testing groups with software tooling and strategy-based solutions to better align government agencies with today's software development challenges and modernization initiatives around Agile, DevOps, and Security.
"As applications increasingly become the de-facto conduit for interacting with government services, and the underlying personally-identifiable information (PII) necessary to support them, it is more important than ever for organizations to adopt development and testing methodologies that encompass a security and quality first approach, said Larry Johnsen, VP of Mil/Aero and Government Solutions at Parasoft. "Parasoft's industry-leading solutions for government enable modernization efforts by providing agencies/programs with crucial visibility and traceability to the ongoing state of quality and security of the software systems being developed by, and for, them."
To ensure "built-in" security and quality for the protection of government interests as well as the personal data of citizens, Parasoft offers security and compliance testing in its automated static analysis and developer-centric solutions. For Java and .NET applications, real-time security compliance reports specifically address compliance to common standards such as OWASP, CWE, HIPAA, and PCA in a centralized reporting and analytics dashboard. Parasoft's industry-leading functional testing solutions for API testing, integration, and simulation, are key to a comprehensive software delivery ecosystem aligned to government organizations looking for a modernized approach to more efficiently delivering high quality, secure applications.
