CodeValor, a software assurance tool created by Huntsville-based Sentar Inc., has been chosen for use in the U.S. Department of Defense Platform One Iron Bank repository.
The Iron Bank is made up of tools designed to keep defense software secure from its development stages on.
“We are excited for CodeValor to be available for use across the DoD,” said Gary Mayes, director of research & development at Sentar. “The DoD’s initiative of enhancing secure software development practices aligns directly with our own. Through this success, we are further protecting the applications that our country’s critical missions are contingent upon.”
CodeValor is already being used by the Missile Defense Agency to ensure both legacy and new-code applications are securely developed and deployed, the company said in announcing the DOD approval of their product. “DoD partners and software development teams will now have access to CodeValor’s advanced capabilities, including a command line interface to enable integration, POA&M reports for compliance documentation, and the ability to scan legacy languages such as Ada and Fortran,” Sentar said.
Sentar provides cyber intelligence, analytics and operations solutions in the national security sector, including key clients at the Defense Health Agency, the U.S. Army, the U.S. Navy and Missile Defense Agency.
In addition to its Huntsville headquarters, Sentar has offices in Charleston, South Carolina; Columbia, Maryland; San Antonio, Texas, and San Diego, California.
