"The Codenomicon tools are amazing. Using them is like being attacked by the most relentless adversary who uses every possible method to find flaws in your code

We fixed subtle crash bugs in Samba that had been in the code for over ten years. We would never have found those bugs without the Codenomicon tools.

If you're serious about implementing protocols correctly, you need the Codenomicon tools."

For Government and Defense

Introduction

In cyber defence, reactive is too late

It is essential to our security and economy that the critical infrastructures work. Attacks against water or energy supplies, health and emergency services, finance, or government and defense could be devastating. Compromised networks expose secret national information to espionage.

Cyber crime is big business. As increasingly valuable data is handled online, the profitability of cyber crime grows. It is no longer a case of occasional exploits; it is an international multi-billion dollar business. Anyone; terrorists, organized criminals and hostile nation states, can purchase the expertise needed and carry out sophisticated cyber attacks.

Catching cyber criminals is next to impossible. In cyber space, there are no national borders. Attackers act globally, and the origin of the attack is difficult to trace. Therefore, the best approach is to rely on information assurance, and to anticipate the attacks against critical infrastructure and networks.

Codenomicon offers solutions for software testing and network situation awareness to proactively protect the people and the national security.

Zero-day vulnerabilities enable attacks

In all forms of cyber attacks, the access into the system or device is enabled by a vulnerability in the code. Known vulnerabilities, which have already been found and reported, are easily mitigated by installing security updates.

Unknown, 0-day vulnerabilities are vulnerabilities in software just waiting to be found. There are no security updates to patch a 0-day vulnerability. Anti-virus software does not block an attack that targets unknown vulnerabilities. If a malicious attacker targets an unknown vulnerability, reactive security measures are useless.

The best way to discover unknown vulnerabilities is proactive testing and vulnerability mitigation. Use Codenomicon Defensics to attack your systems yourself. Be the first to find a 0-day vulnerability and fix it before it becomes a target. If there are no vulnerabilities that can be exploited, the malware does no damage. Robust infrastructures endure.

Monitor the activity to make informed decisions

With Codenomicon's situation awareness solutions, you can identify and monitor any malicious activity in cyber space in real time, and communicate the incidents to those who need to know what is going on. Make the right decisions based on actual facts instead of guessing. Ensure that any disruptions are as short as possible, and cause minimal damage.
