Code Dx and AdaCore Partner to Provide an Ada Application Security Testing Toolsuite
Code Dx, Inc., provider of an award-winning application security management solution that automates and accelerates the discovery, prioritization, and risk management of software vulnerabilities, today announced its partnership with AdaCore, a trusted provider of software development and verification tools for the Ada, C, and C++ programming languages.
Through this partnership, Code Dx Enterprise now supports AdaCore’s CodePeer advanced static analysis tool, an automatic Ada code reviewer and validator. This solution provides developers with one central location from which to view the results of multiple application security testing (AST) tools and allows them to easily prioritize vulnerabilities for remediation. Developers can automatically pull results from AdaCore’s CodePeer into Code Dx Enterprise, without downloading and then uploading scan results each time. Users simply open Code Dx Enterprise and the latest results are there.
“AdaCore is well respected in the aerospace and defense, rail, space, automotive and other industries that have complex requirements for developing high-integrity software,” said Anita D’Amico, Ph.D., CEO at Code Dx, Inc. “With our background with the Department of Homeland Security and our work with other government agencies, we have very similar missions to enable the development of software that is safe, secure, and reliable.”
Code Dx Enterprise supports and integrates with more than 70 commercial AST tools and techniques, including static, dynamic, and interactive tools; third-party component analyzers; and manual reviews, to provide total software application vulnerability correlation and management.
“Through Code Dx Enterprise, our CodePeer users have a central location to store results and a dashboard to visualize key metrics,” said Jamie Ayre, Commercial Director at AdaCore. “In addition, the tool enables our users to more easily collaborate on testing and remediation processes, and to track findings over time. For CodePeer users who are developing multi-language software within the same application, Code Dx Enterprise provides a single repository to manage all of their AST activities.”
