March 10, 2021
MONROVIA, Calif. Parasoft, company specializing in automated software testing, announced that its DevSecOps solution for building security into critical Department of Defense (DoD) programs was selected for use by the DoD's Joint Federated Assurance Center (JFAC). JFAC is a federation of DoD organizations promoting and enabling software assurance technologies and expertise to defense acquisition programs and their supporting activities.
According to the company, Parasoft's DevSecOps solution, which includes static application security testing (SAST) and API Testing, will aim to help JFAC in furthering its mission to provide DoD software teams with a one-stop shop to improve their software quality, compliance, and security practices.
Parasoft is aligned to JFAC's purpose of reducing individual program development costs while hardening its code against security threats. Parasoft SAST places static analysis into the hands of software developers, intended to enable security and quality code scans to take place as code is being written to encourage faster defect and security vulnerability remediation.
With test configurations specific to security standards like OWASP, CWE, and CERT, the Parasoft SAST solution aims to enable organizations to accelerate security compliance and reduce the risk and cost of late-stage remediation efforts.
