Sentar’s CodeValor Approved for DoD One Iron Bank Platform Use
HUNTSVILLE, Alabama–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sentar Inc. (Sentar), a women-owned company specializing in advanced cybersecurity and intelligence solutions and technologies, is proud to announce that its software assurance tool, CodeValor™ has been approved for use by the DoD and will be included in the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Platform One Iron Bank Repository.
Iron Bank is the DoD repository of secure containers approved for DoD DevSecOps use. As part of the submission process, CodeValor underwent a rigorous audit and approval process to obtain a continuing Authorization to Operate (ATO). Approved containers in Iron Bank have DoD-wide reciprocity between classifications. This allows DoD developers to easily acquire and integrate CodeValor into their DecSecOps continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines to secure their code base and reduce ATO delays..
CodeValor is currently used by the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) to ensure that legacy applications and new code applications are developed and deployed securely. DoD partners and software development teams will now have access to advanced CodeValor features, including a command-line interface to enable integration, POA&M reports for compliance documentation, and the ability to scan languages legacy such as Ada and Fortran.
“We are excited to have CodeValor available for use across the DoD,” said Gary Mayes, director of research and development at Sentar. “The DoD’s initiative to improve secure software development practices aligns directly with ours. With this success, we are further protecting the applications that our nation’s critical missions depend on.
Approved CodeValor images are available at ironbank.dso.mil and Registry1.dso.mil. To obtain a CodeValor license for your software development team, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
