Parasoft announces new corporate division for Government agencies
Parasoft, the California-based specialist in automated software testing with over 20 years working with teams in the government and public services sector, have announced a new corporate division dedicated to supporting the software testing needs of Federal, State and Local Government agencies.
By focusing on highly secure and high-quality government modernisation efforts, Parasoft will provide development and testing groups with software tooling and strategy-based solutions to better align government agencies with today's software development challenges around Agile, DevOps, and Security. This will be done on cost-effective modern systems to help achieve goals of high quality at speed.
The new division, spearheaded by Parasoft's VP of Mil/Aero and Government Solutions, Larry Johnsen, will ensure "built-in" security and quality to protection government interests and personal data, the company said. Parasoft offers security and compliance testing in its automated static analysis and developer-centric solutions. For Java and .NET applications, real-time security compliance reports specifically address compliance to common standards such as OWASP, CWE, HIPAA, and PCA in a centralised reporting and analytics dashboard.
"As applications increasingly become the de-facto conduit for interacting with government services, and the underlying personally-identifiable information (PII) necessary to support them, it is more important than ever for organizations to adopt development and testing methodologies that encompass a security and quality first approach", said Larry Johnsen. "Parasoft's industry-leading solutions for government enable modernization efforts by providing agencies/programs with crucial visibility and traceability to the ongoing state of quality and security of the software systems being developed by, and for, them."
