Elektrobit chooses Insight 10TM for significant SCA deployment

BURLINGTON, MA – December 3, 2013 – Klocwork® Inc., a global leader in software development tools for creating secure code, today announced that Elektrobit (EB) has selected Insight 10TM, Klocwork’s desktop source code analysis and review toolset, to identify and help correct security vulnerabilities and reliability issues in their vehicle automation solutions.

Elektrobit has over 25 years of experience in the automotive industry, and is established internationally as a leading provider of software and software services for a broad range of standards-based Infotainment, Navigation, Human-Machine Interface (HMI) and Driver Assistance systems.

EB provides OEM and Tier 1 automotive manufacturers and suppliers, such as Audi, BMW, Volkswagen, Ford and others, with software frameworks, components and support with which to produce their own automotive solutions. Through their Automotive Software Factory, EB also provides software consulting, development and integration services in all phases of the development cycle. This combination of software components and services helps EB customers reduce product development time and associated costs while ensuring the highest quality, security and maintainability in their finished applications.

To uphold their own reputation for security and efficiency in these increasingly complex and connected applications, EB needed to ensure their software products and development processes remained as robust and standards-compliant as possible. They determined that a best-in-class static code analysis (SCA) toolset was essential, supporting the Windows Embedded, Linux, AUTOSAR, FlexRay, CAN, LIN, HTML 5, Genivi and MOST environments they work in.

After considerable competitive evaluations, Klocwork Insight’s blend of deep data flow analysis for security checking, its ability to enforce MISRA coding standard rules, its ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 certifications for the automotive industry, and its ability to perform all these functions from their developers’ desktops, while they are creating their code, proved to be an unbeatable combination.

“Software developers the world over want tools that fit seamlessly with the way they work, and help them do their jobs faster and more effectively. Industry leading companies in the embedded world are looking for these tools that identify security vulnerabilities and reliability issues, de-risk time-to-market and protect their corporate brands. As shown by Elektrobit, Klocwork’s innovative desktop SCA tools are the best at meeting these requirements” said Mike Laginski, Klocwork CEO. “Our desktop analysis allows engineers to find and fix security vulnerabilities and code defects at their desktop, as the code is being written, not after it is checked in for a build. This was key to our win in another very competitive opportunity.”
