TAS increases the security level of its software thanks to Synopsys’ best in class solutions

Milan, June 23rd 2022 – Given the unstoppable increase in cybersecurity risks, no organization can avoid constantly investing in the security of its systems to protect itself and its customers. Hence, it is increasingly important for software developers to have products and services that analyse and test the robustness of applications against fraud attacks.

This is even more true for companies like TAS, whose core business is linked to the development of mission critical solutions for customers in the Finance world, a sector where security is a top priority, considering the potential implications of vulnerability on the stability of the entire payments ecosystem.

In fact, Tas is one of the few Fintech providers admitted to the Italian CERTFin community, which brings together banks and technology suppliers relevant to the Payment Systems, in order to increase the IT risk management capacity of financial operators and the cyber resilience of the Italian financial system as a whole.

To further improve the security of its applications, TAS has recently signed an agreement for the entire Group with Synopsys, a global company headquartered in the United States, which has worked in recent years on the expansion of their suite of Application Security Testing tools with a great response from the market, proving the high quality of their solutions.

According to Gartner, by 2025, 70% of cyber-attacks will come from known vulnerabilities and misconfigurations that could have been fixed earlier. At TAS, due to the nature of our business, we are even more attentive than others to these issues and we like to “play ahead” whenever possible. For this reason, we have decided to adopt the complete suite of Synopsys solutions. Synopsys is the undisputed world leader in all areas concerning the secure development of the code, so we are convinced that we have made the right choice for us, but above all, to be able to offer a really important added value to all our customers” – comments Fabrizio Brintazzoli, Cybersecurity Officer of TAS.

“Synopsys specializes in Application Security. Always alongside our Partners, we offer advanced BSIMM (Building Software In Maturity Model) tools and methodologies in the development of secure code. Synopsys invests every year in R&D and acquisitions in order to expand the product portfolio by guaranteeing complete SDLC solutions. We are honoured by the agreement signed with TAS which will offer its customers software developed with a safe methodological approach” – adds Emanuele Burali d’Arezzo, Regional Sales Manager at Synopsys Software Integrity Group.

The adoption of Synopsys solutions by TAS Software Factory has already begun in Italy and it will be extended in the coming months to the other European TAS Group branches.
