Risk Dashboard - New Feature in CodeSonar 4.5

Ithaca, NY - GrammaTech, a leading provider of software assurance tools and cyber-security solutions, today announced the availability of the CodeSonar Risk Dashboard as a key new capability that elevates security vulnerabilities and software quality to the executive level. It provides executives with an immediate read-out of the level of outstanding security risks in their projects. This is a brand new capability for IT projects and it provides them with the data needed to improve decision-making concerning security investments.
The Risk Dashboard allows for the expression of industry standard and project specific metrics based on the warnings reported by CodeSonar. These metrics result in a visualization of the outstanding risk in a project. The Risk Dashboard supports both source and binary analysis. It can be used to measure risks during the software development phase and in deployment environments. 
“Our customers have relied on CodeSonar to analyze source code during the Software Development Life Cycle for many years.” said Mark Hermeling, Senior Director of Product Marketing at GrammaTech. “The Risk Dashboard, combined with CodeSonar Binary Analysis, gives deployment teams a way to measure outstanding risks in applications before deploying these applications into their IT or embedded environments. This is an exciting new capability that will transform the way software is assessed and will lead to more secure software systems."
The Risk Dashboard will be available in the CodeSonar 4.5 upgrade to licensed customers and provides industry standard metrics that can be customized to individual project needs. CodeSonar 4.5 will be available in the second calendar quarter of 2017.
