Parkeon, one of the world's largest parking and transport management solution providers who are present in 40 countries, has announced that they are using Fortify Software's expertise to check their latest state of the art electronic ticketing solutions to ensure their software is secure and vulnerability free.

Parkeon are world renowned for their parking and transport management solutions, and have developed over 150 software systems, process 550,000 payment transactions per month and centrally monitor 21,000 terminals. It was therefore essential that at the very early stages of designing their latest electronic ticketing and transaction product that the developers were building stringent and secure software, with code that was watertight, free of flaws and would prevent any future hacking incident or breaches. Fortify's expertise was engaged very early on in the development process as it was a natural choice being the application security and testing provider chosen by government, the forces such as the US Air force, many of the major banks such as ABN-AMBRO and JP Morgan, and many of the Fortune 500 companies.

Parkeon are now on target to move quickly through the audit process that will test that their latest innovative and cutting edge payment systems are secure for the customers waiting to use them.

Luc Porchon, at Parkeon, said "We have clients all around the world who currently use our products and the market has needed a reliable and secure payment system. We decided in order to provide one that we trusted and would be up to the demands and scrutiny that our clients required, we would need to design and build it in-house. With the latest compliancy regulations it was imperative from the very early stages that our software was secure and bug free. Using Fortify's expertise to test our software right at the code development stage for vulnerabilities and then removing those flaws has been essential in getting our product to market on time. We will continue to use Fortify software to test all our software to make sure it is secure at all times."

Gael Barrez, Country Manager for France, said "For the last 3 months we have been consulting with Parkeon to check and scrutinize their software to make sure that it gets through the stringent standards expected of the latest PCIDSS and PADSS standards. Our latest software can quickly and easily check all code at source to test for flaws and then seal any vulnerabilities which is what most common hackers are looking for in order to breach the system. We are satisfied that using our award winning software, Parkeon will be able to bring to market their excellent and very exciting new secure payment systems on time and on budget."
