LogicLibrary Releases Logiscan 2.0; Software Security Analysis Solution a Key Component of LogicLibrary's Governance Platform for Service-Oriented Architecture.

PITTSBURGH -- LogicLibrary(R), the leading provider of software development asset management tools, today announced the release of Logiscan 2.0 (formerly known as BugScan) and the completion of its integration with Logidex, the leading software development asset (SDA) management solution. Logiscan is an important part of LogicLibrary's governance platform for service-oriented architectures (SOAs), which spans the application development lifecycle, from initial requirements through design and development to operations and deployment.

LogicLibrary's Logiscan is an easy-to-use appliance that analyzes binary code for both in-house and commercial applications and patches, with the ability to direct users to the location of the vulnerability within the source code. By producing real-time information for developers, quality assurance and IT professionals, Logiscan improves application quality and ensures that secure software is deployed into a business or government organization. Logiscan can be used as a standalone product or in conjunction with Logidex.

"Logiscan couldn't be any easier to use," said James Flowers, principal member of the technical staff at Verizon. "We simply submit the binary file, push a button and receive a report that tells us where vulnerabilities exist and how to resolve them. With Logiscan, we are confident that software deployed into our enterprise is safe and meets Verizon's rigid quality standards."

Logiscan 2.0 features include:

J2EE and SPARC Support--Logiscan's support for J2EE, MIPS and SPARC binaries, as well as existing Intel x86 support, allows LogicLibrary customers to easily scan a wide variety of application binaries for potential risks. Vulnerabilities such as buffer overflows, SQL injection and cross-site scripting can all be discovered with Logiscan, which also offers suggestions for appropriate security remediation via its built-in training for secure coding.

Expanded Reporting Options--Logiscan users submit multiple binaries for analysis and are able to analyze both aggregate and trends reports. By providing the summary status for all submitted binaries on one page, the aggregate report makes it easy for developers to examine a complete application or subsystem of multiple components. The trend report provides graphed results from a user-selected set of submitted binaries, making it simple to see how an application has changed over a given period of time.

Visualization--Logiscan provides AppExplorer, a rich-client, 3D interface that enables customers to see each application from a high level and identify questionable components for closer inspection. Users can visually trace data flow related to security exposures to see where the exposure may become a problem. With its ability to track user-supplied data from a variety of sources, including network connections, local files, cookies and HTTP requests, Logiscan increases the chance of finding exploitable bugs sooner.

Tight Integration with Eclipse and Rational Application Developer (RAD)--Logiscan users can now directly access and scan binaries for vulnerabilities from within the Eclipse and RAD integrated development environments (IDEs). Tight integration dramatically improves programmers' productivity by enabling rapid collaboration among key development tools. By providing additional interfaces such as Web, 3D Visualization, open source command line interface and open SOAP APIs, customers have unrivaled flexibility in accessing and using Logiscan.

"Software security needs to start at the beginning of the development process," said Greg Coticchia, CEO of LogicLibrary. "Too many organizations cut corners on software security because manual analysis is time-consuming and acquiring the required expertise is prohibitively expensive. Logiscan breaks down those barriers with automated analysis of the application's binary code. It is easy to use and cost-effective, requires no knowledge of secure coding practices and, most importantly, helps businesses minimize their exposure to the persistent threats that exist today."

The Logidex SDA management solution simplifies the management, governance and security of enterprise applications throughout the complete application lifecycle, in both .NET and J2EE environments. The completed integration of Logiscan with Logidex allows developers to effectively combine security analysis with other aspects of application creation and management. Validating the security posture of proprietary and third-party software before deployment reduces an organization's exposure to software vulnerabilities and produces software that can be reused often to support changing business needs, resulting in higher customer satisfaction and lower costs.
