"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."

-- Jeremy Allison,
   Co Creator of Samba

"Codenomicon has found a critical focus area which expands beyond web testing, where the XML industry has an opportunity to proactively assess the security holes contained in everyday services used by the general public. I would hope the industry warmly welcomes both the research results and an innovative testing solution to help diagnose the problems."

Prof. Howard A. Schmidt
former White House Cyber Security advisor & Codenomicon board member

Real-time communication, collaboration, bot presence, and instant messaging features are inherent.

VSRoom agents (Bots) tap into information sources via various transports (e.g., IMAP, HTTP, HTTPS, or custom) and read various formats (e.g., CSV, XML, HTML, or custom).

Browser-based visualizations (maps, classifications, and charts) provide high-level overviews, as well as domain specific information. Anything from the range of the status of critical infrastructure in the country to more specific views from Internet Abuse to Weather information.
