Codenomicon Launches Fuzz-o-Matic Software Security Testing

Finland-based Codenomicon introduced its cloud-based, "Fuzz-o-Matic" software security Testing-as-a-Service (TaaS) for applications running on Windows, Linux, Mac, and mobile operating systems.

Fuzz-o-Matic offers a hosted approach to application fuzzing for those who do not have in-house security testers or have a limited budget for penetration testing. Codenomicon said its application fuzzing uses unexpected inputs to stress-test software far beyond normal operating conditions. Most software testing simulates normal operating conditions to determine if software does what it is designed to do. Black-hat hackers use application fuzzing to find exploitable security bugs in unused or rarely-used software functionality.
