Multi-Language Testing Capability Assures Quality and Security for F-Secure

BURLINGTON, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 25, 2007 -- Klocwork, Inc., the proven leader in delivering automated software solutions that improve software security and quality, today announced it has reached an agreement with F-Secure, a leading provider of security products that protect consumers and businesses against computer viruses and other threats from the Internet and mobile networks, to provide static analysis testing for their virus and threat protection product portfolio. The agreement will enable F-Secure to implement best of breed static analysis testing into its wide range of industry leading virus protection and other Internet and mobile threat control products, ensuring that the highest levels of quality and security are met.

"As a company, we are making constant strides towards providing our clients with products that can be counted on to perform at the highest level, which is what they have come to expect from us," said Janne Järvinen, VP, Research and Development, F-Secure. "We looked at several static analysis solutions and in the end, Klocwork proved to truly offer best of breed technology. Their ability to support multiple languages such as Java and C++ combined with the ability to architect the solution to meet our needs made them the right partner for F-Secure. The fact that they had local representation in Nohau, a proven leader in development tools, made us all the more confident that we were getting the best possible support for our developers."

The key component to Klocwork's award-winning static analysis suite, Klocwork K7.5, is the ability for cross-functional development teams to quickly identify software defects and vulnerabilities. With K7.5, F-Secure developers will be able to find defects quickly with greater thoroughness and accuracy. The solution easily integrates with complex build systems and will automatically recognize any changes to a customer's build, ensuring the Klocwork integration is maintained.

"The reputation of F-Secure as being one of the leading providers of virus and threat protection is well known," says Gwyn Fisher, CTO, Klocwork. "That Klocwork has the opportunity to work with F-Secure and their developers is further testament to their dedication to their customers and of Klocwork's ability to effectively manage complex projects across multi-language platforms."
