A top value-added distributor and preferred cybersecurity solutions provider servicing the Middle East and Africa, Spire Solutions has announced a strategic partnership with a recognized leader in application security, Synopsys’ Software Integrity Group to jointly minimize business risks across the software development life cycle (SDLC).
Synopsys helps build secure, high-quality, and compliant software while maximizing velocity and controlling costs. This helps organizations create trust amongst users and customers, integrate security without affecting development velocity and address application security holistically. Synopsys has been a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing for 5 years running as well as a Forrester Wave Leader for Static Application Security Testing and Software Composition Analysis. Founder and President of Spire Solutions Sanjeev Walia said “Organizations are heavily dependent on software and applications to run their business. One of the fundamental challenges they face is around the complexities of managing risks associated with their software and its underlying impact on the overall business. Our partnership with Synopsys enables our customers, partners, and prospects to access Synopsys software integrity group which will help secure their software supply chain, build security into DevOps and create a holistic AppSec programme.”
“We see every business as a software business as they are either developing/selling it to customers or relying on it to run most aspects of their operations,” said vice president of global channels and alliances within the Synopsys Software Integrity Group, Tom Herrmann. “We help companies build trust in their software to protect their bottom line and are eager to do this across the Middle East and Africa with our latest partnership with regional leader Spire Solutions. We are proud to be included as part of Spire’s portfolio of some of the world’s best known cybersecurity products.”
