Defensics enterprise customer experienced 176% Risk-Adjusted ROI over 3 years and recovered first-year investment and costs with the initial testing of large application

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Codenomicon, the market leader in security stress-testing, commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a study of the Total Economic Impact of Codenomicon’s Defensics Security Testing Suite for a Defensics customer who is a large network equipment vendor. Per the Study, “At the time of writing, the organization was strongly considering using Defensics in the code development stage. While this would require potential investment in licenses, training, and integration, it would generate considerable future value if defects and bugs were discovered and remediated during the coding phase.”

Highlighted in the Study’s Executive Summary, the Defensics customer achieved the following results:

* Recovered its first year investment and costs with the initial testing of a large application, where 40 defects and potential vulnerabilities were found.

* Found 110 defects and potential security vulnerabilities in the first year of ownership.
