Synopsys has completed the acquisition of Tinfoil Security, a provider of dynamic application security testing (DAST) and Application Program Interface (API) security testing solutions, headquartered in Mountain View, California.

"Through the acquisition of Tinfoil Security, Synopsys is expanding its DAST capabilities and adding API security testing capabilities, extending the most comprehensive portfolio of application security and quality testing solutions and further strengthening our technology leadership," said Andreas Kuehlmann, co-GM of the Synopsys Software Integrity Group. "Tinfoil Security provides Synopsys with proven DAST technology that can be seamlessly integrated into development and DevOps workflows. Furthermore, Tinfoil Security's innovative API scanning technology addresses an emerging demand in the market and will further differentiate the Synopsys portfolio."

The terms of the deal, which is not material to Synopsys financials, are not being disclosed.

Tinfoil Security's web scanning solution is a next-generation DAST technology that identifies vulnerabilities on web applications and is tightly integrated with DevOps workflows. The Tinfoil Security API Scanner detects vulnerabilities in APIs, including web-connected devices such as mobile backend servers, IoT devices, as well as any RESTful APIs.

Ainsley Braun, CEO and co-founder of Tinfoil Security, said: "As part of the Synopsys portfolio, we're in a stronger position to help developers and IT security professionals build secure solutions for their organizations."
