Software Improvement Group (SIG) today announced it has collaborated with Siemens Digital Industries Software on a new, strategic OEM agreement to address cybersecurity compliance needs. The new OEM agreement allows organizations using the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of software to manage their cybersecurity compliance through Siemens’ Polarion ALM™ software for application lifecycle management (ALM) and SIG’s software assurance guiding platform, Sigrid® for full portfolio landscape assessment with deep dive insights into security and code quality.
The integration of Sigrid into the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio brings powerful new capabilities to help clients comply with the ISO 21434 and UN 155 standard, which look set to become a requirement for automotive manufacturers in the coming years to allow clients to create tomorrow’s cars today. Additionally, customers can also benefit from automatic SBOM generation and best-in-class vulnerability scanning, prioritization, and guidance for their own code.
Sigrid provides seamless integration with Polarion so clients can streamline their cybersecurity compliance process. Integration with Polarion allows clients to manage cybersecurity of their own and third-party software directly in their ALM/PLM environment. With its broad support for technologies, particularly C and C++, Sigrid is the platform for cybersecurity management and compliance.
Luc Brandts, Group CEO of Software Improvement Group: “Security breaches in embedded software in cars, airplanes and satellites can have disastrous consequences. Early detection and continuous monitoring of the software is crucial to mitigate these risks. With this new partnership, we offer Siemens Xcelerator clients the possibility to act swiftly on existing and emerging quality and security regulations. We’re excited to extend our cooperation with Siemens on this important subject.”
