Secure Decisions Wins U.S. Department of Homeland Security Phase II Software Assurance Contract

Division of Applied Visions, Inc. to continue development of a software assurance risk management framework for supporting static and dynamic code analysis to help secure software developed for government, industry and academia. NORTHPORT, New York, March 14, 2014– Secure Decisions, a division of Applied Visions and developer of visual analytic tools for cyber security, has received a Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase II award from the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to improve the security of software applications. Under this DHS Science & Technology (S&T) Directorate contract, Secure Decisions will continue development of the Code Ray™ software assurance risk management framework, to correlate the results of static and dynamic software analysis tools towards the goal of improving software vulnerability detection.  The Code Ray technology will be incorporated into and extend Secure Decisions’ current [...]

Code Dx v1.0 Cybersecurity Application Provides Visual Analytics for Source Code Diagnosis and Remediation of Software Vulnerabilities

Easier Detection and Faster Triage of Software Vulnerabilities for Developers, Security Auditors, and Compliance Officers Highlights: Code Dx is a Software Assurance (SwA) tool with a new approach to combating the growing cyber threat to software source code Code Dx consolidates and normalizes vulnerabilities detected by several different code analysis tools, as opposed to the current norm of relying on just one tool Code Dx provides an interactive visual analytics user interface that helps Developers, Security Auditors, and Compliance Officers to triage and prioritize software vulnerabilities for effective remediation Code Dx research and development was funded by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Science & Technology (S&T) Directorate NORTHPORT, NY, November 15, 2013 – Secure Decisions, the cyber  security division of Applied Visions, Inc., today announced the release of Code Dx™ v1.0, a software assurance [...]

Secure Decisions and Morgridge Institute Team Up to Provide Enhanced Software Assurance Capability

NORTHPORT, NY, July 08, 2013 – Secure Decisions, a division of Applied Visions, Inc., and Morgridge Institute for Research have entered into a partnership to advance software assurance initiatives of mutual interest towards the goal of providing an operational environment for assessing the security of  software applications. Secure Decisions and Morgridge institute will be collaborating on software assurance (SwA) projects sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science & Technology Directorate (S&T). Beginning now through 2014, as part of an initial collaborative effort, Secure Decisions and Morgridge will integrate Secure Decisions’ Code Dx™ static analysis correlation and visualization tool into Morgridge’s Software Assurance Marketplace (SWAMP) environment. Secure Decisions expects to continue to enhance the functionality of Code Dx within the SWAMP by expanding its support for additional software languages and static analysis tool results, [...]

Secure Decisions Technology to Support the NIST Static Analysis Tool Exposition (SATE)

NORTHPORT, NY, June 17, 2013 – Secure Decisions’ new software assurance technology Code Dx™ will be used by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to support the evaluation of static source code analysis tool performance during the fifth Static Analysis Tool Exposition (SATE V) and Workshop. The Static Analysis Tool Exposition (SATE) is part of an effort led by NIST and hosted by the Morgridge Institute Software Assurance Marketplace (SWAMP) to advance research in, and improvement of, static analysis tools that find security-relevant defects in source code.  The exposition will allow participating tool developers to execute their software assurance tools against a set of software programs with known security defects. NIST-led researchers using Code Dx will be able to analyze the tool results, and report and discuss their findings and experiences at a [...]

Secure Decisions’ Code Dx Featured on the DHS Build Security In Website, and the NIST SAMATE Website

NORTHPORT, NY, July 16, 2012 – The Department of Homeland Security has chosen to feature Code Dx, software assurance visualization technology developed by the Secure Decisions division of Applied Visions, on its Build Security In website. The DHS National Cyber Security Division maintains the Build Security In site as a resource to software developers, with the mission of “setting a higher standard for software assurance.” Code Dx is the only technology specifically highlighted in the Technologies and Tools section of the site. In the same week Code Dx was also featured in the Tool Integration Frameworks section of the SAMATE (Software Assurance Metrics And Tool Evaluation) website, hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). This recognition stems from a recent presentation by Secure Decisions at the June DHS Software Assurance Working Group [...]

Secure Decisions Presents Software Assurance Visualization Research at VizSec 2010

Visualization system correlates vulnerabilities from multiple software analysis tools to improve software security. NORTHPORT, NY, November 18, 2010 – Researchers from Secure Decisions, a division of Applied Visions, Inc. and developer of visual analytic tools for cyber defense, presented “Visual Analysis of Code Security” at the 7th International Symposium on Visualization for Cyber Security (VizSec 2010). The symposium draws researchers and practitioners in information visualization and security and focuses on new visualization techniques to solve cyber security problems. This year VizSec was held in Ottawa, Canada on September 14th. The paper, authored by Dr. John Goodall, Hassan Radwan, and Lenny Halseth, describes a software assurance visualization system that visually correlates the output of multiple software analysis tools to better identify vulnerabilities in software code. The researchers discuss how the prototype performed in compiling and visualizing [...]
