Klocwork to supply the UK embedded software market with SCA and code review capabilities through new partner, UK-Based reseller Nohau, while expanding network of global partners
BURLINGTON, Mass. — Feb 26, 2008 — Klocwork Inc., a global leader in automated source code analysis solutions for improving software security and quality, today announced a partnership with Nohau UK, an established provider of design and development solutions for embedded systems in the United Kingdom.
The new partnership will enable Nohau UK customers to find critical security vulnerabilities and quality defects early in the development process and reduce their development and software validation costs. This agreement will accelerate Klocwork’s already fast growing European business, and will allow Klocwork to support and grow deployments with new and existing customers in the UK and Ireland.
The underlying software that supports everything from mission-critical business systems to home electronics continues to grow in functionality and complexity, highlighting the need to identify and remove critical software bugs and security vulnerabilities early in the development process. With Klocwork’s source code analysis products and services, Nohau UK can address this critical market need by providing advanced source code analysis that can be used right at the developer desktop. Additionally, Nohau UK will provide its customers with complementary services for training and implementation.
Kevin Pope, Nohau’s Managing Director, believes that the new partnership will bring a uniquely powerful resource to developers in the UK and Ireland. He comments: “Reliable, accurate code analysis solutions that run at the developer desktop are now crucial in the embedded market, as software reliability is critical to support increasing application functionality, complexity and performance. Our customers demand scalable, developer-centric offerings to enhance their already rigorous software validation processes, and we are now proud to offer Klocwork’s market leading developer tools as part of our support.”
“Not only does this partnership expand our global presence, but we are able to join forces with an established organization with a strong network of existing customers,” said Mike Laginski, chief executive officer, Klocwork. “Nohau UK’s experience and the impressive capabilities of our products will allow developers to identify and remediate critical coding issues before code is submitted into the code stream, a powerful combination that will help us address the needs of the UK and Irish embedded markets.”
Klocwork provides highly scalable and accurate source code analysis tools to identify the root causes of software security and quality defects, track them throughout the software development process, ensure that they have been dealt with by the development team and prevent them from reoccurring. Solutions are available in two versions: Klocwork Insight for C/C++ and Java and Klocwork Insight for Java.
