Security-Assessment.com has been appointed master distributor for the Australian market by NZ-based CodeScan Labs.
The company will look to boost sales for CodeScan Labs products including CodeScan Developer, and the soon to be released CodeScan Enterprise.
General Manager of Security-Assessment.com, Drazen Drazic, said it would look for local representation in key markets comprising security consultancy firms, corporate application development teams, Web development organisations, and compliance managers.
Security-Assessment.com has already been distributing CodeScan Developer for a year, but the distribution has never been formalised. Distribution plays a small part in the company's business, which is primarily to provide independent security services to local firms.
CodeScan Developer analyses source code looking for vulnerabilities such as Cross-site scripting, SQL injection and input filtering. The ASP version has been out for a while with the PHP version now in beta. The .NET and Java versions should be available in Q2 or Q3 this year.
"Typical Web application source code analysis is a long and manual process taking days, weeks or months to complete, and although CodeScan does not totally replace manual source code audits and analysis, it will shorten the review time by up to half, and automate a high proportion of the review and reporting requirements,". Drazic said.
