RedSiren to Resell Reasoning's Security Inspection Service

8/2/2004 - Reasoning, the leading provider of automated software inspection services, announced that it has established a reseller agreement with RedSiren® (, the world's most trusted provider of IT security management solutions. Under terms of the agreement, RedSiren will market, promote, and resell Reasoning's Security Inspection Service, examining and analyzing application source code for RedSiren's customers globally. The agreement expands Reasoning's distribution channel while enabling RedSiren to extend its suite of IT security management solutions, further enhancing the customer service and support it delivers to more than 1000 companies worldwide.

As part of the agreement, Reasoning will examine application source code developed by RedSiren customers who sign up for the service, delivering application reliability and security vulnerability reports that help application developers identify and fix potential security flaws. Post-inspection analysis and recommendations further benefit developers by sharing industry-standard "best practices" that reduce repetitive coding errors. RedSiren and Reasoning will also participate in cooperative marketing and sales activities, including ongoing training.

"After evaluating other providers, we selected Reasoning because of its added capacity to find potential vulnerabilities other methods overlook," said Bob Santmyer, RedSiren's Vice President of Professional Services. "By incorporating their offering into Balanced IT Security Framework, we can locate and fix hard-to-find security vulnerabilities in applications before others can take advantage of them. This approach helps our customers avoid spending additional developer resources while limiting the high number of false positives routinely generated with conventional testing tools." Santmyer noted the agreement enables RedSiren to respond to its customers' requests for security code inspection capabilities.

"We're very pleased to announce this partnership with RedSiren as Reasoning's security code inspection service is complementary with RedSiren's best-of-breed IT security services and solutions," commented Reasoning's President and CEO, William Payne. "The agreement makes Reasoning's Security Inspection Service more easily available to a broader market that is increasingly looking for a readily available solution that can proactively discover security vulnerabilities missed by other tools while providing significant cost-savings."

The service is available immediately in single test and annual subscriptions for year-wide testing.
