Mendix and Software Improvement Group Launch a New Software Application Quality and Security Scanning Solution


BOSTON, Jan. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Mendix, a Siemens business and global leader in modern enterprise application development, and Software Improvement Group (SIG), an independent technology and advisory firm for software quality, security and improvement, have announced the release of Mendix Quality & Security Management (QSM), a new cybersecurity solution that provides continuous deep-dive insights into security and code quality to immediately address risks and vulnerabilities. The introduction of Mendix QSM enables enterprises to fuel innovation and growth, while managing cyber risks and building future-fit software.

The Mendix low-code development platform enables companies to accelerate the delivery of new innovations. Succeeding the Mendix Application Quality Monitor (AQM), the new Mendix QSM solution provides IT management, quality assurance teams, and software security experts deep visibility across the entire portfolio of Mendix applications. This enables close control of the software development process without compromising the quality and security of software, ensuring that security oversight is always top of mind for customers.

Mendix QSM is powered by Sigrid®, SIG's software assurance guiding platform. Combining more than 20 best-of-class security scanning tools, it provides a comprehensive overview of how security findings impact business objectives. With Mendix QSM, Mendix clients can scan their Mendix applications, including third-party libraries, for vulnerabilities and incorrectly configured security models, rank for compliance with main industry standards such as OWASP, ISO 5055 and PCI, and receive recommendations and clear guidance on risk mitigation.

Mendix QSM is based on static analysis of application models. Mendix models have been mapped to the ISO 25010 Maintainability model by SIG experts based on the Mendix model metadata. This allows for benchmarking of Mendix applications against a database of thousands of projects, including open-source initiatives. Mendix QSM also presents a five-star rating of the software quality. For example, a four-star software rating means issues are resolved three times faster, throughput increases seven-fold, and productivity increases almost 11-fold compared to a two-star rating.

"Mendix and SIG have been Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) partners since 2016," said Hans de Visser, chief product officer at Mendix. "In the past six years, we have strived to empower our customers with fast software development and best-of-industry governance tooling to build future-proof applications. Security is top of mind for our customers, and the new cybersecurity capabilities in Mendix Quality & Security Management is a logical extension to cater to the increasing security demands and requirements of our customers. Mendix and SIG expanded the OEM partnership to help Mendix customers manage the quality of their applications proactively, ensuring faster issue resolution with higher technical quality of software."

Luc Brandts, group CEO at SIG, said, "With the number of cyber attacks growing every day, it is crucial for organizations worldwide to manage the build quality and security of their IT landscapes in a continuous fashion. We are providing this service as part of our quality assurance commitment to our customers. This new and improved joint security solution offers Mendix clients from bit to boardroom the transparency and continuous security insights they require in order to build business-ready applications with total confidence."

SIG inspects and certifies thousands of software systems per year on technical quality according to ISO/IEC 25010 and will continue to add new scanning tools and rules to QSM as part of its ongoing service.
