About Code Dx, Inc.

 

Code Dx, Inc. was founded on the principle that application vulnerability management should be an integral part of the software development process, and we know that can only happen if it is convenient and logical. Our goal is to help developers and security professionals make their software as secure as possible, using an integrated collection of open-source and commercial tools.

We believe that different application security techniques are neither better nor worse than one another, but are actually mutually beneficial, and should be used together. Most application security vulnerabilities won’t be found by any one tool, and every technique for finding them has its advantages and disadvantages.

We built our flagship software, Code Dx Enterprise, to combine and correlate different tools and techniques under one vulnerability management tool – with one user interface, one reporting function, and one set of recommendations. Developers can use these reports and recommendations to coordinate the efforts of developers and security analysts, streamlining workflow and inter-function communication.

From our headquarters on the north shore of Long Island, in a small village that once built wooden ships to withstand the dangers of fishing in the north Atlantic, we are focused on helping developers build and launch applications that can safely brave the hazardous waters of the internet.

Code Dx’s software suite grew from research funded by the Department of Homeland Security, Science and Technology Directorate’s Small Business Initiative Research (SBIR) program. The Secure Decisions division of Applied Visions carried out this research, and Code Dx was spun out as a new company to make the results of that research available to the entire application development community.
