MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today announced key updates to its Software Integrity Platform that are designed to help companies build security and quality into their software while reducing time-to-market. In the era of digital transformation, building secure and reliable software is challenged by the rapid, complex and diverse nature of development cycles. The latest updates to the Synopsys Software Integrity Platform address these challenges with expanded support for new programming languages, full coverage for the Motor Industry Software Reliability Association (MISRA) guidelines, improved automation and integration capabilities, and increased flexibility.
According to a recent Forrester Research report, "Applications are increasingly the face of interaction between companies and their customers; this includes customer-facing applications, differentiating mobile apps, Internet-of-things (IoT) device interfaces, and streamlined back-end processes. Meanwhile, application security technologies continue to evolve based on new developer methodologies, new attack vectors, new application types, and new business needs."1
"The latest enhancements to the Synopsys Software Integrity Platform help organizations address the rapid pace of change when developing and securing their software," said Andreas Kuehlmann, senior vice president and general manager for the Synopsys Software Integrity Group. "By expanding our coverage to include new programming languages and standards compliance, and ensuring our solutions integrate with a diverse ecosystem of development tools, we enable our platform to be adaptable to a wide range of customer needs. Synopsys is positioned to guide organizations along their software integrity journey as the industry landscape evolves."
The new updates to the Synopsys Software Integrity Platform include a wide range of enhancements and features:

Empowering organizations to improve the security and quality of their broadening software portfolios, Synopsys continues to expand the coverage of its Software Integrity Platform.
Integration and automation: With the emergence of trends such as DevOps and continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD), organizations are shifting toward more rapid and iterative development methodologies. To keep pace, software security testing efforts need to leverage automation and integrate with development tool chains and workflows. Synopsys continues to introduce news ways to automate the security and quality testing process, integrating it seamlessly with other development tools and workflows.
Flexibility: When it comes to making software secure, every organization has unique requirements and challenges that go beyond the confines of traditional out-of-the-box security solutions.
