By implementing Synopsys’ comprehensive portfolio of solutions and services, Dahua strengthens its offerings, building security and quality into their software development lifecycle (SDLC) and supply chain.

“We are committed to delivering to our global customer base – from residential to enterprise – the highest quality and most secure Internet-connected devices,said Fu Liquan, chairman of Dahua Technology. “Synopsys’ comprehensive solutions and services allow us to minimize software-related business risks by building security into the development process, which reduces the vulnerabilities that can jeopardize our products.

Highest level of security for IoT devices

Dahua Technology has implemented Synopsys tools to address software security and quality issues throughout the SDLC using multiple technologies, including static analysis, fuzz testing and software composition analysis. Dahua Technology has also joined the Building Security in Maturity Model (BSIMM) community and will undergo a BSIMM assessment, a comprehensive benchmarking process that provides an objective, data-driven view into its current software security initiative. Using the BSIMM results, Dahua will establish a baseline measurement of its software security program, which will be used to guide its efforts to continuously improve the security and quality of its products over time.

“As organisations introduce IoT devices into the market, it’s essential to ensure their security and protect customers’ data and privacy,” said Andreas Kuehlmann, senior vice president and general manager for the Synopsys Software Integrity Group. “Dahua’s decision to engage with Synopsys highlights their commitment to provide their customers with IoT devices that incorporate the highest level of security.”
