Mu Dynamics Joins Microsoft Security Development Pro Network

By Divya Narain, TMCnet Contributor

Sunnyvale, Calif.-based IP services testing specialist Mu Dynamics, Inc., announced that it has joined the Microsoft (News - Alert) Security Development Lifecycle Pro Network.

The member companies of the SDL Pro Network offer end-to-end software development services complete with security and privacy safeguards. In its capacity as an SDL Pro Network member, Mu Dynamics (News - Alert) offers the Mu Test Suite, which can help fulfill the verification and release phase requirements of the SDL.

Developers and testers derive a twofold advantage from the Mu Test Suite, which not only allows them to accelerate the time-to-market for new services but also enhance the quality of the end product.

Software developers and testers of new converged IP applications and services face a number of challenges, the most prominent of which is staying one step ahead of new vulnerabilities and patches. Traditional testing technologies prove to be inadequate for tackling the ever-evolving security vulnerabilities.

Mu's adaptive testing approach uses service traffic from a customer's environment as the basis for the testing solution. This results in rapid generation of test cases that accurately and thoroughly test the customer's services - both the application and the infrastructure - as a single system.

"The primary goal of the Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) is to protect end-users," said David Ladd, principal security program manager at Microsoft, in a statement. "The SDL Pro Network is comprised of organizations with expertise across the entire software development lifecycle from training and requirements to response execution. We are pleased to add Mu Dynamics to the SDL Pro Network to help development organizations bolster the verification and release phases of the SDL; which in turn helps testers accelerate time to market and increase the quality and safety of the final product."

The Mu Test Suite helps test organizations implement SDL through capabilities including custom fuzz testing for any service or protocol, fuzz testing suites for widely deployed IP services, remediation toolkits, customized security tests and rapid field issue resolution.

"We are excited to join the Microsoft SDL Pro Network and are committed to providing testers with the tools they need to quickly develop secure and resilient software," said Ajit Sancheti (News - Alert), co-founder, vice president business development at Mu Dynamics. "Testers have the enormous task of testing against the latest security and privacy requirements, and with additional complexity introduced by converged IP software and infrastructure. With the Mu Test Suite, testers can easily automate the creation and execution of accurate test scenarios based on actual communication interactions to produce a solid, 'bullet-proof' product."
