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
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.
