NORTHPORT, NY, April 16, 2013 – The Secure Decisions Division of Applied Visions has been awarded the Long Island Software Award. Code Dx™ was selected as one of “Long Island’s Top Software Products” and will receive the award at the Long Island Software and Technology Network (LISTnet) event to be held on May 1st, 2013.  The Long Island Software Award mission is to “showcase the strength and diversity of Long Island’s software industry by recognizing excellence in a wide range of software products”. Secure Decisions has previously won this award for their MeerCAT®, VIAssist™ and SecureScope™ products.

Code Dx was initially developed as part of a Department of Homeland Security-funded research effort to develop tools for improving the security of software products developed for government and industry.  It was based on the needs of DHS software assurance professionals, such as security auditors, security analysts and software developers, who evaluate and test software applications for compliance to government specified standards and known safety and security risks.

Code Dx is a triage and visualization tool developed to help software developers, security analysts and security auditors identify and manage weaknesses and vulnerabilities in software codebases. It is designed to correlate the output of several open source and commercial software analysis tools such as JLint, PMD, FindBugs, HP Fortify and Armorize, to provide a unified view of detected software weaknesses, and the ability to assess and manage the security status of software. Its rich feature set provides a guided and streamlined workflow for triaging and managing analysis results, as well as helping to quickly remediate software flaws.
