Secure Software Launches Global Partnership Program.

MCLEAN, Va. -- Secure Software

Foundstone, a Division of McAfee, Inc., Joins Alliance as Security Services Partner; Implements Secure Software's CodeAssure Product Suite and CLASP Process into its Application Testing Services and Training Sessions

Secure Software, an authority in automated application security products and process technology, today launched the Secure Software Alliance. The Secure Software Alliance is a global partnership program designed to promote the adoption of better application security testing tools and processes for improving the overall security of in-development software and pre-deployment applications. Foundstone, a division of McAfee, Inc., a leader in application security testing services and education, is the first security services company to join Secure Software's partner program.

Foundstone will integrate Secure Software's CodeAssure product suite, an automated application security testing tool, and CLASP (Comprehensive, Lightweight Application Security Process) into the company's existing application security testing services and training offerings. The partnership equips Foundstone consultants with the most comprehensive, accurate testing solution on the market and solidifies Secure Software's process-oriented approach to software security as the leading method for locating and remedying vulnerabilities during the development lifecycle.

"Many of the critical vulnerabilities that are so common in today's enterprise applications could be remedied at the outset by simply implementing better security testing and stronger security processes into the software development lifecycle," said Mark Curphey at Foundstone, a division of McAfee. "Security is the single most important feature to customers across markets and across applications, and vendors are starting to take notice. Adding CodeAssure and CLASP to Foundstone's current offerings enables us to provide the most complete application security testing package available today. We will be able to cost-effectively eliminate the vulnerabilities that lead to the catastrophic security breaches that have become all too common in the business world."

Foundstone joins the Secure Software Partner Program as a Security Services Partner. There are four different categories of participation in the Secure Software Alliance:

--Global Alliance Partners--Industry leaders with global capabilities to promote, market or deliver application security and process technology to organizations

--Security Services Partners--Companies including Foundstone, licensing the CodeAssure Suite as the premier Application Security analysis tool.

--Technology Partners--Companies needing product integration for Secure Software's CodeAssure(TM) Product Suite.

--CLASP Contributing Members--Companies contributing time and customer experience to the overall improvement of Secure Software's Comprehensive, Lightweight Application Security Process. CLASP is the software industry's first standard roadmap for integrating security testing and processes into existing software development lifecycles.

Secure Software provides Alliance Partners access to a combination of sales, marketing and support offerings designed to provide them with the resources necessary to deliver strategic value to the organizations they service. Secure Software Partners also benefit from industry-leading automation technology, state of the art security process capability and access to recognized industry experts.

"Building more secure software has become a top priority at many organizations. However, most don't know where to begin in terms of changing existing processes and integrating security testing within development," said Kevin Kernan, CEO of Secure Software. "Together with Foundstone and our other alliance partners, we will help these organizations down the path toward building, shipping and deploying more secure applications, and reducing security risks for their customers."
