Synopsys forms Technical Advisory Board for embedded software integrity

By Nick Flaherty

Synopsys has appointed a Technical Advisory Board (TAB) to guide the technical direction of its  Software Integrity Group’s security products and services.

Despite being a synthesis tool provider, hardware IP and embedded software has been a major part of the company's growth, particularly for applications such as automotive and the Internet of Things. 

The five-member board of experienced software and security executives will advise Synopsys on broader trends in the software industry, provide input on its solutions strategy, and help align its priorities with the requirements of its customers and market.

“Delivering exceptional value to our customers through innovative, cutting-edge solutions is core to our business,” said Andreas Kuehlmann, general manager of the Software Integrity Group. “Though our staff already includes many of the world’s premier software security experts, we understand it is important to build and maintain an objective outside perspective to review and augment our technical strategies. The TAB members, made up of accomplished technologists, will help us do this.”

The TAB will be chaired by Dr. Gary McGraw, vice president of security technology at Synopsys. The initial board members include Dr. Brian Chess (Oracle), Dr. Neil Daswani (Symantec), Dr. Charlie Miller (Cruise Automation), and Dr. Laurie Williams (North Carolina State University).
The Software Integrity Platform unites leading testing technologies, automated analysis, and experts to create a robust portfolio of products and services. This portfolio enables companies to develop personalised programs for detecting and remediating defects and vulnerabilities early in the development process, minimising risk and maximising productivity.
