CoagTrak Anticoagulation Management Software (AMS) Receives Veracode’s
Highest Possible “A” Security Rating
Veracode Verifies CoagTrak Software as Exceeding Security Best Practices
NEW WINDSOR, NY -- (Marketwire - February 4, 2009)
- - Medimatics, LLC, the premier web-based anticoagulation management solution for private practices and hospital settings, today announced it received Veracode's highest rating "A" for its application security level.
"We decided to include Veracode's caliber and rigor of testing into our product development life cycle, to insure, and independently validate, the security of the CoagTrak platform," said Steve Larmon, CTO at CoagTrak.
"Our inclusion of this type of testing and the pursuant results truly differentiate Medimatics and the CoagTrak product as the most secure anticoagulation software in the marketplace, " commented James Gary, CoagTrak's COO, "ultimately it gives our clients the assurance we are doing everything possible to protect their patient's information."
"Today's enterprise applications containing Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and Personal Health Information (PHI) are increasingly under siege given the data is a valuable currency to attackers," said Matt Moynahan, CEO of Veracode. "Independent proof that software has been evaluated for security vulnerabilities is a competitive differentiator and demonstrates due care has been taken to meet stringent regulatory and compliance requirements. Medimatics has taken proactive steps to protect their customer's sensitive data and has demonstrated the security quality of their software through the Veracode SecurityReview service."
The Veracode rating shows that applications have been tested against industry-standard benchmarks such as Common Weakness Enumeration - CWE; Common Vulnerability Scoring System - CVSS; and the National Institute of Standards and Technology - NIST; to determine weaknesses and severity levels. The ratings incorporate business risk, so that high assurance applications, such as CoagTrak, are rigorously evaluated in context to the data they handle. This empowers enterprises to make informed risk-based decisions concerning software use and acceptance.
