SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 6, 2007 -- RSA® Conference 2007, Booth # 242 -- Codenomicon, Ltd., a leading developer and provider of state-of-the-art software testing tools, today announced that it has signed distribution agreements with Tricomtek in Korea and Toyo in Japan. These new alliances give the company a market leadership position for security testing in the Asia Pacific.

"Previously, Codenomicon has brought its testing solutions to key telecom enterprises in the Asia Pacific region through direct sales. Now, we are excited to take these efforts one step further by combining our strengths with world-class experts that offer a local presence in these markets," said Ari Takanen, Chief Technology Officer at Codenomicon.

"We have, therefore, teamed up with Codenomicon to provide our customers with Codenomicon's world leading security and robustness solutions."
