Firefox code gets vetted

Security has always been one of the major concerns for the enterprise, and when it comes to Web-based services, be it e-mail or even simple browsing, there is always that something more which the organisation may want.

Mozilla seems to have understood this need of the enterprise. The company has licenced Coverity to make sure that there is automated detection of source code for flaws in the browser. Coverity is already being used by security majors like McAfee, Symantec and others. This may add credibility to Mozilla’s plans.

What this means to the enterprise is simple. They get an open source browser that already has the bugs checked, thus cutting down on the need to deploy further security checks. This is because flaws in the code may be the same ones that make it easier for the blackhat hacker to attack a client.
