Synopsys acquires Code Dx to extend security portfolio


The addition of Code Dx enables Synopsys to offer customers consolidated risk reporting and prioritisation across correlated software vulnerability data produced by Synopsys solutions and more than 75 third-party and open source application security and development products. Headquartered in Northport, New York, the acquisition also adds a team of R&D engineers experienced in vulnerability correlation and integrating security testing activity across the entire software development pipeline. Prior to the acquisition, Code Dx was a valued member of the Synopsys Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program. As a result, customers can use Code Dxs offering in conjunction with Synopsys products immediately. The addition of Code Dx makes Synopsys the first vendor to provide the full spectrum of application security tools and services, including: • An intelligent orchestration engine that automatically determines and initiates the appropriate tests for each step in the DevOps workflow • An aggregation, correlation, and prioritisation solution for the vulnerabilities identified during testing • Consolidated application security risk reporting across any commercial and open-source application security solutions • Consulting and managed services to align people, process, and technology and address application security risks holistically The extensibility of Synopsys Intelligent Orchestration and Code Dx enables organisations to build more efficient and effective testing programs while leveraging their current investments in application security testing tools.
