Cigital was established in 1992 with funding and contracts from DARPA and NASA.  The creation of Cigital Labs Research in the mid 1990’s resulted in some of the most important advancements in software security including the development of the first ever commercial Static Analysis tool, ITS4.  The technology in this product was eventually licensed to Kleiner Perkins and used as the basis for the creation of Fortify Software in 1999. Fortify went on to become the global leader in  the Static Analysis tool marketplace and was sold to Hewlett Packard in 2010.  Cigital Labs has been awarded 8 different patents in areas dealing with software security.
