Oracle to use Fortify's tools to secure source code

Oracle has announced plans to use tools developed by source-code security technology developer Fortify Software to seek out holes in Oracle's database and middleware software. According to Oracle Chief Security Officer Mary Ann Davidson, Fortify is the first company to deliver just what Oracle needs.

Fortify was the first company to listen to Oracle's description of its development process and to tailor its software to meet Oracle's needs, Davidson said.
Fortify's software is an integrated collection of tools that will be able to scan code for secure coding policy violations and other weaknesses in Oracle's 30 million lines of code.
