Based on its recent analysis of the Testing-as-a-Service (TaaS) market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Codenomicon Ltd. with the 2012 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Customer Value Enhancement for the launch of the pioneering Fuzz-o-Matic testing platform in the TaaS market.
Without requiring access to source code, Fuzz-o-Matic allows anybody to test any vendor’s software. Fuzz-o-Matic stress-tests applications operating on Windows, Linux, Mac, and mobile platforms such as Android. With its ability to identify security defects while avoiding false positives, Fuzz-o-Matic has an edge over competing testing solutions in the market – such as Static Application Security Testing, other Dynamic Application Security Testing, vulnerability scanning, or hybrid analysis. Fuzz-o-Matic discovers security bugs that if exploited cause Denial of Service (DoS) or data leakage. By putting benefits of Codenomicon’s 15 years of software security testing experience into its Fuzz-o-Matic service, Codenomicon has clearly put its best foot forward to make the testing landscape even more competitive.
With the launch of the Fuzz-o-Matic solution, Codenomicon will be able to cater to a wide range of users who previously did not have access to security testing. Fuzz-o-Matic can be used during the software development cycle to eliminate bugs as the software is written, giving developers longer lead-time for bug remediation prior to field deployment. For software already deployed in the field, Fuzz-o-Matic quickly identifies and prioritizes security bugs by severity. For those modifying the software baseline of internally-developed applications, use of the platform offers improved software reliability and software ruggedness.
"A user-friendly interface at an affordable price, improved performance over existing testing solutions, and consistent customer satisfaction are but a few of the value-added benefits that Codenomicon's Fuzz-o-Matic solution offers," said Frost & Sullivan Program Manager Olga Yashkova. “The evolving development of such innovative solutions with advanced features will help Codenomicon set a game changing standard in the TaaS market."
"We've worked hard to make Fuzz-o-Matic simple to use, yet powerful. In fact, the workflow is as simple as a user uploading an application into the Fuzz-o-Matic web interface, the testing begins, the user logs into their secure webpage for the Results Dashboard, and the user can see and download the repeatable test cases for the security bugs," says Mikko Varpiola, Codenomicon Co-Founder and Test Suite Developer #1.
Overall, this state-of-the-art solution, with its advanced and unique functionalities, is one of a kind in the North American TaaS market, delivering enhanced value to customers with its cost-effectiveness and user-friendly interface. Due to these significant solution attributes and customer satisfaction, Codenomicon is the worthiest recipient of the 2012 Frost and Sullivan Customer Value Enhancement Award.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in implementing strategies that proactively create value for its customers, with a focus on improving the return on the investment that customers make in its services or products. The award recognizes the company's inordinate focus on enhancing the value that its customers receive, beyond simply good customer service, leading to improved customer retention and ultimately customer base expansion.
Frost & Sullivan Best Practices awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.
Codenomicon finds security vulnerabilities others can’t find. Companies rely on Codenomicon's solutions to discover zero-day vulnerabilities that cause Denial of Service (DoS) and data leakage if exploited by hackers ― the unknown vulnerabilities Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) use to break into systems. Codenomicon’s customers include Alcatel-Lucent, AT&T, Cisco Systems, Microsoft, Motorola, Google, Verizon, Nokia Siemens Networks, Huawei, and T-Systems. Known for its Defensics software for security stress-testing of software/firmware/hardware and its Clarified Situation Awareness Solution for Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERTs), Codenomicon launched Fuzz-o-Matic in January 2012.
