“Fortify’s technology brings together the critical analytic, remediation and management capabilities necessary for an effective Software Security Assurance program,” said Roger Thornton, founder and CTO of Fortify Software, Inc. “We’re pleased that a recognized leader like Denim Group has become a trusted delivery partner.”

Using both static and dynamic analysis methods, Fortify 360 identifies more than 400 types of security vulnerability across 17 different development languages. It provides line-of-code level details for vulnerabilities that are uncovered — a critical capability for organizations that are serious about reducing risk in their software.

“What makes us unique in our software development approach is that we use the Fortify solution for secure software development projects for our clients,” said John Dickson, Principal of Denim Group. “This enables us to build secure applications that our clients trust to protect their most sensitive information.”
