Parasoft Unveils Runtime Memory Analysis to Increase Team Productivity and C and C++ Software Quality

Parasoft Launches a Webinar Series to Help C and C++ Software Development Teams Enhance Productivity by Integrating Vital Automated Analyses

MONROVIA, CA--(Marketwire - February 3, 2010) - Parasoft Corporation, leading provider of automated solutions that improve software quality and the development process, today announced the new release of Parasoft C++test, an integrated solution for automating a broad range of best practices proven to increase software development team productivity and software quality for C and C++. In this new release, Parasoft significantly expands the scope of C++test with the introduction of integrated runtime memory analysis that is suitable for both enterprise and embedded development.

"Software verification techniques such as static code analysis, runtime memory analysis, unit testing, and data flow analysis can each prevent and detect specific types of defects," stated Wayne Ariola of Parasoft Corporation. "Now, with the latest release of C++test, development teams can apply all of these complementary techniques in concert. This integrated approach dramatically reduces the risk of going to market with the defects and security vulnerabilities that commonly evade traditional fragmented testing efforts."

New Capabilities for Reducing the Risks of C and C++ Software Development

--  Runtime memory analysis enables teams to automatically identify serious
    runtime defects -- such as memory leaks, null pointers, uninitialized
    memory, and buffer overflows -- during execution. It operates at both
    the unit level and application level. Since the instrumentation used
    for this analysis is lightweight, it can be run on the target board,
    simulator, or host for embedded testing.

--  Parasoft Concerto Task Assistant brings change-based testing and
    automated task management directly to the developers' familiar work
    environment.  Parasoft Concerto interacts seamlessly with Visual Studio
    and Eclipse-based IDEs to distribute, manage, and monitor each team
    member's assigned tasks. Moreover, the correlation of requirements,
    tasks, test cases, and artifacts not only establishes a flawless audit
    trail, but also provides the base correlations for change impact
    analysis.

--  Extended environment and compiler support for ARM, Keil, IAR, Texas
    Instruments, QNX, AIX, and Eclipse 3.5 enables more developers to use
    Parasoft C++test as a seamless part of their development process.
