Research Institution
Enterprises are now recognizing the importance of security in the life cycle of software development and code maintenance. Several recent studies have shown that the risk of not integrating security into the software life cycle can have serious negative consequences. There are some disparate tools and products currently available to monitor and mitigate the risks, but a comprehensive solution is needed for covering the entire pedigree of the software development and release cycle. Avenda Systems proposes a product called Software Pedigree Analyzer and Reporter Suite (SPARSuite) to monitor, track, analyze and report pertinent data during various phases of software life cycle, including code development, product build, release and patch distribution. The solution works with a distributed set of file servers and source code management and version control systems. It supports multiple hardware and software platforms. Our past experience in commercializing SBIR projects, and the experience gained from designing and implementing SPARsuite will help us to release a commercially viable product in Phase III.
