GrammaTech Achieves Record Growth in 2009

GrammaTech, Inc., manufacturer of the most in-depth source-code analysis technology, today announced record product sales for 2009

GrammaTech, Inc., manufacturer of the most in-depth source-code analysis technology, today announced record product sales for 2009. The company also increased the staff by more than 40% in 2009. Privately held, and profitable every year since its inception, the company has thrived since the introduction of its CodeSonar® static-analysis tool. CodeSonar’s popularity among developers of critical embedded systems is the catalyst that has fueled several years of growth, in spite of the recent global recession.

“During a time when some competitors retreated, the company has continued to achieve record growth,” said GrammaTech’s CEO Tim Teitelbaum. “Based on the results of the last six months, we anticipate significant increases in both CodeSonar sales and professional services in 2010. We also have some exciting R&D in the pipeline that we intend to productize this year.”

In early 2009 GrammaTech expanded both its domestic sales force and its global distributor network, including the addition of offices in Europe. Sales in 2009 came from a variety of critical industries, including medical, industrial control, defense, aerospace, telecom, datacom, and electronics.

Building on the record success of 2009, GrammaTech started 2010 strong, releasing CodeSonar 3.5 in the first week of January. CodeSonar 3.5 incorporates a variety of new features, most of which were developed based on feedback and demand from existing customers. For example, many customers are using CodeSonar for security reviews, so the number of security-related checks performed by CodeSonar has been increased significantly.

Among these new enhancements are the “Build Security In” checks, which enforce C/C++ secure coding rules provided by the Build Security In (BSI) software assurance initiative of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Another new feature is broader platform support. CodeSonar is now fully supported on all current versions of Windows, as well as Linux, Solaris, and Mac OS X. Among the other advances in CodeSonar 3.5 are various improvements to performance and the user interface.
