DOD to Use Parasoft’s DevSecOps to Aid Software Teams
The Department of Defense’s Joint Federated Assurance Center will utilize a DevSecOps solution developed by Parasoft to meet the needs of DOD software teams.
JFAC is a group of DOD organizations dedicated to reducing vulnerabilities in fielded defense systems by identifying and facilitating access to software and hardware assurance expertise and capabilities.
The DevSecOps solution is expected to promote JFAC’s mission of giving software teams centralized access to capabilities for improving software quality, compliance and security practices, Parasoft said.
Larry Johnsen, VP of military/aerospace and government solutions at Parasoft, said the DevSecOps solution is designed to build security and quality into major armed services’ mission-critical applications.
The solution features static application security testing capabilities that enable software developers to perform security and quality code scans as codes are being written.
By facilitating static code analysis, software developers are able to conduct faster defect and security vulnerability remediation, Parasoft said. As a result, organizations reduce the risk and cost of late-stage remediation efforts.
The SAST solution has test configurations specific to security standards such as OWASP, Common Weakness Enumeration and CERT.
Headquartered in Monrovia, California, Parasoft provides an integrated suite of automated software testing tools to help organizations continuously deliver quality software. The company supports companies in the automotive, civil aviation, finance, government, healthcare and insurance, hospitality and travel, industrial automation, medical devices, military and defense, retail, e-commerce and telecommunications industries.
