Sanctum announced AppScan Developer Edition (DE) 1.5, which helps to create secure Web applications. AppScan DE is integrated seamlessly into Microsoft's Visual Studio .NET for support using the C#, C++, and J# programming languages. The product helps developers create unit tests and validation processes, provides defect analysis, and offers recommendations for code improvement.
Sanctum CEO Peggy Weigle said, "The launch of AppScan DE is in direct response to corporations' emphasis on building hacker-resistant, reliable applications from the ground-up. We believe this will be a major breakthrough in redefining the industry standards for quality software."
AppScan Developer Edition is scheduled for release in March 2003.
