Start-up takes a crack at blocking hackers

Wednesday, 7 April 2004, 10:45 AM EST

The Menlo Park, Calif.-based company, Fortify Software, is offering a set of tools designed to test software for potential flaws, while products are still being built. The tools allow companies to examine the underlying code programmers write more closely, cutting down on the likelihood of security weaknesses, according to Fortify.

"Despite efforts to eliminate intrusions using perimeter solutions and firewalls, enterprises continue to face potentially disastrous threats due to vulnerabilities in the application layer," Fortify Chairman Ted Schlein said in a statement. "By addressing security vulnerabilities early in the development and release cycle, applications are fortified against security threats."
