The company Codenomicon has released a new version of its software for the protection and stability testing of systems, called DefensicsX.
New in this program are advanced coating system with multiple testing and an improved interface. The improved system adapts quickly to test the functionality of each device. And finally, the new program runs faster on problems related to future vulnerabilities such as zero-day. The solution of such problems – one of the top priorities of companies producing software, devices, and for end-user, companies and network operators.
New Defensics X meets all current safety requirements. In addition to improved coverage, Defensics X integrates feedback from hundreds of users of the program. These innovations have improved usability, automation and testing process error reporting.
“The new, easy to use interface, based on a built-in functionality and interoperability checks, can accelerate the process of fuzzing” – says Laurie Riikivi, technical director of Codenomicon.
Most platforms require advanced safety skills for working with test security. Defensics is also a platform for automated testing, which are built all the know-how of security. The new user interface helps the user Defensics at each stage of testing. Users can easily skip the preparatory phase of testing, they do not need. All the features of older versions of programs are available in the new.
“You do not have to be a professional in the field of security to use Defensics”, – says Ari Takanen, director of Codenomicon.”Any programmer, system administrator or automated testing specialist will be able to find vulnerabilities such as zero-day, unless, of course, he uses a program Defensics X”.
Defensics X uses a technique of systematic testing. It allows you to identify suspicious input data, or vulnerability, with which the attack was carried out. When defects are detected and vulnerability, Defensics stores detailed results of this work.
Based on these results, the engineer can quickly diagnose and fix bugs in the code. In addition, all tests can be conducted Defensics several times, making this platform ideal for regression testing and reproduction problems of third parties.
