Businesses Build Secure Applications with Parasoft AEP Software

3/1/2004 - Parasoft, a leading provider of Automated Error Prevention (AEP) software solutions, announced that Parasoft AEP SolutionsTM offer businesses a way to build security into their applications.

The Parasoft AEP Solutions provide a practical way to prevent security vulnerabilities through the automated application of industry-standard best practices, such as static analysis, dynamic analysis, unit testing and runtime error detection. By applying the recommended AEP practices throughout the software development lifecycle, it is possible to remove many security vulnerabilities, as well as improve the overall code quality and reliability.

"The traditional industry approach for avoiding these types of security attacks is to perform testing to simulate hacker actions," said Adam Kolawa, Parasoft Chairman/CEO. "But an easier way to protect your code is to supplement security testing with a concerted effort to prevent security vulnerabilities from being introduced as the team is writing code. AEP helps to prevent these vulnerabilities, essentially stopping hackers in their tracks."

Three of the most commonly exploited internal software weaknesses are:

"To ensure application security, you must not only prevent hackers from entering the system, but also ensure that code safeguards security if a hacker does break in," said Kolawa. "There is no room for error. If you anticipate and prevent hundreds of security vulnerabilities but overlook just one, a hacker can still wreak havoc on your system."
