Latin American Telematics Leader Selects Klocwork

Insight 10™ Tops 16 Competitors for Improving Code Security and Reliability

BURLINGTON, MASSACHUSETTS--(Marketwired - Nov. 19, 2013) - Klocwork® Inc., a global leader in software development tools for creating secure code, today announced that RoadTrack, the leading vehicle telematics systems and services company in Latin America, has selected Insight 10™, Klocwork's desktop source code analysis and review toolset, to identify and help correct security vulnerabilities and reliability issues in their vehicle automation systems.

RoadTrack works with leading automotive manufacturers to supply OEM and after-market vehicle telematics systems. For example, the company has worked with General Motors to factory-install and activate more than 500,000 systems in Latin America to date, under the ChevyStar brand. RoadTrack's latest OEM-certified technology, the Platinum 7 Series, provides comprehensive vehicle security, personal safety, vehicle navigation, user communications and infotainment features.

To uphold the highest security and product quality standards in these increasingly connected and complex applications, the company needed to ensure they had a robust static analysis process in place for the range of C/C++ and Java code they are embedding. They evaluated 16 different vendor tools to address that need. In the end, Klocwork Insight's coverage of security vulnerabilities and code defects was the strongest, easiest to use and most dependable.

"We tested all the tools. Klocwork's depth of analysis and accuracy in the results was a deciding factor. Their focus on the developer desktop, letting them find and fix issues faster and produce cleaner code from the start, also made the difference." said Francisco Velastegui, RoadTrack CTO.

"Software developers the world over want tools that fit seamlessly with the way they work, and help them do their jobs faster and more effectively. Industry leading companies in the embedded world are looking for these tools that identify security vulnerabilities and reliability issues, de-risk time-to-market and protect their corporate brands. As shown by RoadTrack, Klocwork's innovative desktop SCA tools are the best at meeting these requirements" said Mike Laginski, Klocwork CEO. "Our desktop analysis allows engineers to find and fix security vulnerabilities and code defects at their desktop, as the code is being written, not after it is checked in for a build. This was key to our win in another very competitive opportunity."
