the leader in standards compliance, automated software verification,
source code analysis, and test tools, announced today that it has chosen Prosoft
as a distributor of the LDRA
tool suite and certification
services to customers in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent
States (CIS). As a prominent provider and integrator of technologies for
safety- and security-critical markets, Prosoft is ideally positioned to
deliver expertise and support of the LDRA tool suite in developers'
With this agreement, LDRA extends its reach to companies that face an
increasing need to certify safety- and security-compliant systems. The
growing volume and complexity of code in the safety- and
security-critical markets has driven companies to seek out automated
software testing and verification
systems to avoid the prohibitive costs and schedule overruns endemic in
a manual compliance process. The LDRA tool suite, with its ability to
configure process and coding standard rules, is ideal for Prosoft
customers who must adhere to international regulatory guidelines as well
as stipulations from Russian regulatory agencies.
"In addition to meeting safety- and security-critical standards,
companies in Russia and around the world must manage other factors such
as cost, schedule, and liability," said Ian Hennell, Operations Director
of LDRA. "With our tools, companies can incorporate requirements
standards whether international, national, industry, or in-house and
apply them across their entire development life cycle. Because the LDRA
tool suite can then automate the tracking, testing, verification, and
documentation of these requirements, developers save unprecedented time
and cost while also reducing corporate risk."
For Prosoft, LDRA's ability to bring compliance rigor to the application
layer meets a pressing need in Russia and the CIS. Historically, Prosoft
has delivered a wide portfolio of hardware and software solutions
founded on safe hardware and qualified operating systems from companies
such as Wind River and QNX. However, the increasing complexity and
volume of code in such solutions has challenged Prosoft customers'
ability to verify application code and provide a wholly certified
system. As a quality tool already qualified in Russia, the
LDRA tool suite can be extended to support security analysis and
compliance, which creates an opportunity for further streamlining
through re-use of already qualified code.
"By gaining the ability to achieve end-to-end analysis and verification
of the application layer through the LDRA tool suite, Prosoft can now
meet customer needs for a completely safety- and security-certified
system," said Nikolay Gorbunov, Embedded Software Platforms and Tools
Product Manager at Prosoft. "In Russia, where adoption of international
safety and security standards more frequently complements the existing
regional criteria, a framework that enables developers to detail all
requirements and then track those artifacts throughout the entire
application life cycle represents a significant efficiency breakthrough.
Such efficiency has a direct impact on our customers' schedule and
By way of 10 branch and over 30 reseller offices in Russia and the CIS,
