Ounce Labs Named to SD Times 100 for 2006

Recognition Earned for Security Leadership and Innovation in the Software Development Industry

WALTHAM, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 5, 2006 -- Ounce Labs, the leader in software security assurance, today was named to the SD Times 100 for 2006, a list of the software development industry's top leaders, innovators and influencers. According to SD Times publisher BZ Media, editors chose winners based on each company's "offerings and reputation" as well as looking for companies "that have determined a direction that developers followed."

Demonstrating Ounce Labs' commitment to software development professionals, the Ounce Developer Plug-in license is free, so organizations can give teams of any size access to assessment results, vulnerability descriptions, and remediation advice. Ounce customers have also benefited from seamless product integration within the software development lifecycle, fastest time-to-results, and the greatest accuracy available for source code vulnerability analysis.

"Security scanners tend to be trigger-happy and obtuse, but Ounce Labs offers friendly scanners with fewer false alarms," explained the citation on the company's award, which was given in the Software Security category.

In addition to software developers, the Ounce solution is used by QA, audit, and security teams responsible for assuring the security of software. Ounce's superior value among source code vulnerability analysis products comes from its unique ability to identify real versus potential vulnerabilities and to look beyond simple coding errors to also identify design flaws, such as weak encryption, lack of access control, or improper network communications.

"The winners of this year's SD Times 100 awards have demonstrated their leadership in shaping the software development industry," said David Rubinstein, Editor-in-Chief of SD Times. "We took into account each nominee's products and services, its reputation among development managers, and the new ideas it brought out. These select individuals and organizations are the ones we've identified as helping to move the art of development forward."

"We appreciate the positive feedback we continue to receive from software development managers as they use Ounce to ensure their software is secure," said Hugh Scandrett, CEO of Ounce Labs. "Ounce fits seamlessly into existing development organizations with native IDE and DTS integration, while also providing the analysis and management capabilities required by security and audit teams. The value of this deployment flexibility, along with Ounce's unmatched accuracy, are confirmed by industry response like the SD Times 100 and by the measurably improved software security among our customers."
