What is Software Reliability?

Software reliability is the probability that software will operate failure-free for a specified period of time in a specified environment. It is an important contributing factor impacting system reliability (which includes hardware and human reliability). Various approaches can be used to improve the reliability of software with an appropriate balance between development time and budget. High software reliability is extremely critical in cyber security applications.

What’s the payoff?

Robust software reliability design, development, test and support approaches help to ensure optimized system performance and total life cycle cost.
