Codenomicon Earns Frost & Sullivan's 2007 Product Differentiation and Innovation Award

Codenomicon DEFENSICS Recognized as Offering Superior Innovative Capabilities Among Competing World Security Test and Measurement Vendors

SAN JOSE, CA and OULU, FINLAND--(Marketwire - August 14, 2007) - Codenomicon, Ltd., the leading provider of preemptive security and robustness testing solutions, today announced that the Codenomicon DEFENSICS test platform has been selected by Frost & Sullivan as the most differentiated and innovative security test and measurement solution for 2007. The Frost & Sullivan award is presented each year to the company which demonstrates the ability to advance products with more innovative capabilities than competing vendors and products.

"Codenomicon is expected to have a major impact on the world security test equipment market," stated Frost & Sullivan Industry Manager Jessy Cavazos. "The company's platform clearly raises the bar in the industry with regard to protocol coverage and its unique robustness testing technoglogy. Interviewed customers validated DEFENSICS' power and depth of test capability, immediate ability to implement and gain results, and quality yields within the carrier, networking, software development and enterprise markets."

Codenomicon DEFENSICS enables companies to preemptively mitigate unknown and published threats in products and services prior to release or deployment -- reducing service failure, zero-day attack and system breach threats. DEFENSICS offers unparalleled blackbox testing against the broadest set of applications, spanning over 120 Internet, wireless and digital media protocols. Unlike code analyzers and after-the-fact vulnerability scanners, the DEFENSICS platform empowers developers and security analysts to rapidly perform rigorous security and availability tests at the protocol-level to identify and resolve issues that can result in reputation, quality, compliance and liability risks.

"Given the business costs and brand impact due to system failure and vulnerability exploits, preemptive robustness and security testing is a best practice to complement conformance and performance quality processes," said Isaac Sundarajan, CEO of Codenomicon. "Codenomicon has a history of security testing innovation that has benefited our global customer base. We are honored to be recognized for our achievement and our DEFENSICS platform will continue to offer our clients the best, cost-effective means to extend test coverage for improved quality and risk management."

The award research highlighted that Codenomicon DEFENSICS Protocol Modeling and Attack Simulation Engines, when combined with the industry's broadest protocol coverage, makes the solution an obvious preference to augment testing systems and components. Additional noted features include ease of use and implementation within larger testing processes, software license flexibility with test suites spanning numerous network, application and file format categories, the ability to execute thousands of well-documented test cases to accelerate flaw identification remediation, and greater quality assurance with nominal resource and time impact.

The Frost & Sullivan award complements the growing body of awards and accolades bestowed on Codenomicon including Always-On Top 100, Red Herring 100 and prestigious Finnish Information Processing Association IT Achievement award. The Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Award recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.
