Ounce Selected by MicroSolved for Greater Accuracy and More Complete Results

Risk Management Company Upgrades Software Security Testing With Industry Leader

WALTHAM, MA, -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 11, 2006 -- Ounce Labs, the leader in software security assurance, today announced that its software has been licensed by MicroSolved, provider of risk management consulting for Fortune 500 corporations and government agencies. A key element of MicroSolved's security testing services, the Ounce solution was chosen to replace another commercial source code analysis product, which had failed to provide sufficient value.

"Our services rely on a portfolio of best-of-breed security products, and Ounce was a clear improvement over the product we had been using. It far surpasses other code scanners with its ability to quickly isolate real vulnerabilities and provide the information and tools required to fix them," said Brent Huston, CEO of MicroSolved. "Software security assessments are not about generating a huge list of potential bugs, they're about analyzing the full range of security risks and providing accurate, actionable reports across a large number of applications. Ounce is the only product that gives us this ability for developers, analysts, and managers, while what we had before was exclusively a developer tool."

MicroSolved was founded in 1992 by Brent Huston, an accomplished speaker and author on information security. In addition to his work developing security technologies and implementing large-scale vulnerability testing programs, he co-authored the book "Hack Proofing Your E-Commerce Site" and was a contributor to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) legislation.

"MicroSolved is highly regarded for its security testing and risk management services among large corporations, and we're pleased that companies like this continue to recognize our product leadership," said Hugh Scandrett, CEO of Ounce Labs. "We take a unique approach by offering products that address software security as a business-level issue in addition to a development issue. This strategy is paying off, as more and more customers look for scalable, comprehensive analysis of large application portfolios."

Risk management services companies such as MicroSolved continue to build software security assurance services around Ounce because it offers the most effective way to measure the security of applications and give the depth of analysis required to make necessary improvements at the source code level.
