Synopsys, UL to Reveal Details About Cybersecurity Assurance Program at CodenomiCON USA 2015
28.08.2015

Synopsys, Inc. today announced that UL will present details about its Cybersecurity Assurance Program (CAP) at CodenomiCON USA, hosted by Synopsys at the House of Blues in Las Vegas, Nevada, on August 4. This presentation follows UL’s April announcement of a collaboration between UL and Codenomicon, a cybersecurity company hrecently acquired by Synopsys. An invitation and registration is required to attend CodenomiCON USA. Those not attending the event can learn more about the collaboration by visiting Synopsys at booth #652 or #664 during Black Hat USA 2015.

UL’s CAP, currently under development, will provide a baseline structure for cybersecurity assurance and will be customized for specific industry segments. The program will initially focus on medical devices and industrial control systems, with planned expansion into other vertical markets. UL’s CAP is intended to help companies reduce software vulnerabilities and exploitable weaknesses, as well as increase security awareness.

Ken Modeste, the principal engineer at UL responsible for CAP, will share details about the program at the event. The presentation will provide an overview of CAP, which was created in response to increasing demand for third party software assessment in the market, and will cover the initial framework, scope and requirements of the program.

"UL customers have stated that they want a third-party, trusted, independent company like UL to support their cybersecurity testing needs," said Modeste. "The UL Cybersecurity Assurance Program is a first step in helping our customers focus on innovative ideas and technologies by providing a framework for assessing their products for cybersecurity vulnerabilities and software weaknesses. We are very excited about this program and look forward to our continued collaboration with Synopsys and others to drive this forward."

"As the Internet of Things continues to expand, and companies use software and connectivity to improve their products, it is paramount that the industry raises the bar for the quality and security of code," said Mike Ahmadi, director of critical systems security at Synopsys. "The cyber and physical worlds are colliding, and having a means to make informed risk decisions will allow stakeholders to maneuver through the rapidly evolving threat landscape."

Synopsys entered the software quality and security market with its acquisition of Coverity in the spring of 2014. As an established leader in providing the global semiconductor industry with the tools and semiconductor IP needed to design the advanced chips found in today’s electronics, Synopsys products represent more than 400 million lines of code. Synopsys was one of Coverity’s first customers because it recognized early on the importance of software quality. With the recent acquisition of Codenomicon, Synopsys continues to grow its software quality and security solutions to help customers in industries such as energy, retail, financial services and health better address their ever-increasing quality and security needs.
