This week, SAFECode announced the addition of Siemens as its newest member. SAFECode, the Software Assurance Forum for Excellence in Code was co-founded by EMC and other leading technology providers in 2007, to advance the adoption of effective software assurance methods. Siemens joins Adobe, EMC, Juniper Networks, Microsoft, Nokia, SAP and Symantec in SAFECode membership.
More than being a new member, Siemens will expand SAFECode’s perspective on best practices for developing and delivering more secure software by bringing a wealth of experience in electronic and electric engineering while keeping SAFECode’s focus on technology providers.
Siemens joining SAFECode also reinforces that technology providers have a lot in common when it comes to software security, irrespective of whether the software they deliver manages enterprise IT infrastructures, critical infrastructures or cloud infrastructures.
On behalf of EMC, I am glad to welcome Siemens to SAFECode.
