Klocwork Insight Selected for VME and Critical Systems Editor's Choice Award

BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - July 15, 2008) - Klocwork, Inc., the proven leader in automated source code analysis solutions for improving software security and quality, today announced Klocwork Insight received the VME and Critical Systems Editor's Choice Award. Klocwork Insight's focus on delivering source code analysis for use with mission-critical systems and its ability to reduce the amount of time software developers spend debugging rather than writing code were primary reasons for the selection.

The 2008 Editor's Choice Awards will be published in the August 2008 issue of VME and Critical Systems magazine. Editors highlighted numerous ground-breaking developments brought to market with Klocwork Insight: "Of particular importance is that this desktop tool is intended for use by the developer during local build, instead of providing an after-the-fact audit build report. The list of features is too numerous to describe here, but highlights include: identification and analysis of critical and security bugs (handy in mission-critical systems); IDE-based code analysis (no need to exit your favorite tool); detailed software architecture visualization; user-defined style or path analysis checkers; bug tracking and reporting -- locally or team-based."

"We are impressed with the potential of Klocwork's Insight," said Chris Ciufo, group editorial director, OpenSystems Publishing. "Any kind of tool that contracts the iterative process of writing and debugging software -- especially if it can help during the coding part of the process -- might be a real money saver."

"It is terrific for Klocwork Insight to be credited specifically for its ability to deliver source code analysis directly to the developer desktop," said Mike Laginski, CEO, Klocwork. "Our focus has always been on enabling developers of mission critical software to write higher quality, more secure code and we are extremely pleased to be recognized for it."

Klocwork Insight is a leading static source code analysis tool for C, C++ and Java, and the only solution with a Connected Desktop Analysis capability that enables developers to run the analysis with full system context right at their desktop, before they check in their code. Solutions are available in two versions: Klocwork Insight for C/C++ and Java and Klocwork Insight for Java.
