Solve the Challenges of Military Software Development

Deploy DevSecOps

Parasoft’s cutting-edge automated testing solutions offer seamless integration with CI/CD pipeline tools, empowering developers to remediate security vulnerabilities effortlessly while leveraging the power of containers. With our service virtualization capabilities, users can efficiently create, deploy, and manage virtual test environments, streamlining the testing process.

In today’s DevSecOps environments, compliance with security standards is paramount. Parasoft ensures early compliance in the development process by seamlessly integrating with DevSecOps workflows. Our tools are designed to support mandated security standards such as CWE, CERT C/C++, DISA-STIG, and OWASP, providing developers with real time feedback on potential security flaws and vulnerabilities.

Moreover, we extend our compliance support to other essential standards like MISRA C/C++ and AUTOSAR C++ 14, which are crucial for ensuring safety and reliability in compliance with functional standards such as DO-178C. By integrating these standards into our testing tools, we enable developers to build robust and secure software systems that meet industry regulations and best practices.

With Parasoft’s comprehensive integration with CI/CD pipeline tools and support for a wide array of compliance standards, developers can confidently enhance the security and reliability of their software throughout the development life cycle, mitigating risks and ensuring the delivery of high-quality products to the market.


Defense agencies are faced with the challenge of modernizing their computer systems while maximizing the capabilities of legacy equipment. Parasoft offers a specialized military software testing solution that effectively addresses both objectives. Through automation, our solution streamlines the testing process of legacy software systems, bringing them up to current safety and security standards.

Key components of our testing solution include static analysis, automated unit testing, and comprehensive code coverage analysis (statement, branch, MC/DC, and assembly code). These features ensure that legacy software is thoroughly examined for potential vulnerabilities, code errors, and security weaknesses, thus enabling it to meet today’s rigorous standards.

As part of our commitment to supporting the modernization efforts of the warfighter mission, we offer testing solutions in containers and the cloud. This approach ensures flexibility and scalability, allowing defense agencies to modernize their software systems without encountering bottlenecks in the testing process.

With Parasoft’s military software testing solution, defense agencies can confidently modernize their computer systems while optimizing the performance and security of legacy equipment, all with the assurance that critical software meets the highest safety and security standards necessary for successful and secure missions.

Time and Budget Demands

Amid budget restrictions, military agencies face the challenge of achieving more with limited manpower while being accountable for time and budget constraints. Parasoft’s military software testing tools offer a solution that effectively addresses these challenges. By seamlessly and tightly integrating with DevSecOps development tool ecosystems, our tools ensure both speed and quality throughout the software development life cycle (SDLC).

With Parasoft’s integrated testing tools, military agencies can optimize their development processes, reducing manual efforts and freeing up valuable manpower. This automation streamlines testing procedures, enabling faster delivery of secure and high-quality software products while adhering to tight budgets and time constraints.

By leveraging Parasoft’s testing tools within the DevSecOps environment, military agencies gain greater visibility into the software development process, enabling them to identify and remediate issues earlier in the development cycle. This proactive approach minimizes the risk of time and budget overspends, allowing agencies to operate more efficiently and effectively within their resource limitations.

In summary, Parasoft’s military software testing tools help military agencies achieve more with less manpower and also enable them to deliver reliable and secure software solutions on time and within budget, ensuring mission success while meeting stringent budgetary constraints.

How Parasoft Helps Military Software Development

Parasoft adopts a proactive test early and often approach to military software testing, aiming to guarantee top-notch software quality, security, reliability, and on-time delivery. This approach is particularly effective in mitigating risks associated with complex and interconnected mission-critical systems. Our comprehensive suite of testing tools empowers developers to identify and address potential security weaknesses and vulnerabilities in application code bases.

With a strong focus on compliance, our testing tools ensure that software adheres to essential security and safety guidelines, such as CWE, CERT, OWASP, MISRA, AUTOSAR C++ 14, DISA-ASD-STIG, and process standards like DO-178C and UL 2900. By proactively enforcing these standards, Parasoft assists military organizations in meeting strict regulatory requirements and industry best practices, contributing to the overall reliability and security of the software.

Through this test-centric approach, Parasoft supports the development of high-quality military software that not only meets stringent security and compliance standards but also helps to reduce potential risks and challenges commonly associated with complex mission-critical systems. By incorporating testing early in the software development life cycle, we empower military agencies to deliver software solutions that excel in terms of quality, security, and reliability while ensuring on-time delivery for mission success.
