Ounce Labs' Leading Source Code Analysis Software Receives 2008 Jolt Productivity Award

WALTHAM, Mass., March 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Ounce Labs(TM), the industry leader in software risk analysis, today announced that the company's flagship source code analysis solution, Ounce 5, has received the prestigious 2008 Dr. Dobb's Jolt Productivity Award in the Security Tools category. These annual awards showcase products that have "jolted" the industry with their significance and have made the task of creating software faster, easier and more efficient.

"It's an honor to be the industry's only security source code analysis solution to win the Jolt Productivity Award this year," said Claudia Dent, senior vice president of marketing for Ounce Labs. "This award is a clear recognition of Ounce's ability to make security a more natural part of the daily life of the developer. The combination of automated analysis and deep remediation guidance is putting security on the agenda throughout the software development lifecycle."

The Jolt Product Awards identify the most ground-breaking, trend-setting, top-of-the-line products that developers should be using. Winners are selected by a panel of renowned judges that includes esteemed editors, columnists and industry experts, who provide insight into the latest and most promising trends. They define who is ahead of the curve, honoring products that are universally useful; that are simple, yet rich in functionality; that redefine or "jolt" their product space or solve a nagging problem that has consistently eluded other products and resources.

"This year was an exceptionally exciting year for our judges, because there were so many strong contenders in every category," said Amber Ankerholz, conference manager for Dr. Dobb's Events. "The winners reflect the great innovations thriving in the industry today, and it was especially satisfying to see industry leaders as well as newcomers changing how developers work by giving them great new products that reflect the changing software development landscape."
