SAFE Corporation Awarded Patent Number Six for its CodeSuite Software Forensics Tool
The CodeCross function of CodeSuite compares functional source
code to commented-out source code
CUPERTINO, CA (February 9, 2015) - Software
Analysis & Forensic Engineering Corporation, the leading
provider of forensic tools for software copyright and trade secret
analysis, had its sixth patent allowed covering its CodeSuite tool
for comparing software code to help detect copyright infringement.
This latest patent is entitled "Detecting Plagiarism in Computer
Source Code" and covers the CodeCross functionality that compares
functional code to non-functional code. CodeSuite is the only commercially
successful tool for comparing computer source code and object code
to find infringement that has been accepted by the courts. It has
been used successfully in over 70 intellectual property litigations
worldwide. CodeSuite has been recognized by the USPTO as a unique
invention. Our customers agree.
"Other programs that compare software don't provide any understanding
about the comparison or the results," according to Gary Stringham
of Gary Stringham & Associates, who has used CodeSuite in his
expert witness cases. "Things match or they don't. Only CodeSuite
allows me to delve into the reasons for the matches, search the
Internet for comparable third-party code, and then systematically
filter out false positives. This means I can focus on possible infringement
very quickly. Or, if nothing is left after filtering, I have a very
strong argument against infringement."
"CodeSuite has survived every challenge in court that it's
ever faced," says Bob Zeidman, president of SAFE Corporation
and inventor of CodeSuite. "Judges and juries like the quantitative,
objective measurements produced by CodeSuite when they're produced
by a qualified expert trained in the tool. We provide online certification
courses that give lawyers confidence that the expert knows how to
use the tool and produce rock solid results that will stand up to
scrutiny in court."
CodeSuite 4.7 is available now and can be purchased on a term license
or project basis. Project pricing is based on the size of code analyzed
and the specific function used for the analysis. Pricing varies
from $10 per megabyte for CodeCross to $400 per megabyte for CodeMatch.
A six-month unlimited use license for CodeSuite is $50,000. A limited
feature version of the program, CodeSuite-LT, is available for a
six-month unlimited license for $3,000. Free trial licenses can
be requested by contacting sales@SAFE-corp.com.
