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."
