Security Assessment
Qinetics has engaged independent 3rd party auditor to perform product assessment which is inclusive of security assessment as 1 of the core assessment. The Malaysia MSC Product Assessment & Rating Standard was developed by TUV Rheinland Malaysia Sdn. Bhd., in collaboration with Macrofirm Technology Sdn. Bhd., under the commissioning of the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC). TUV Rheinland Malaysia is a member of TÜV Rheinland Group, a global leader in independent testing and assessment services. The TÜV Rheinland Group was established in 1872, and has offices located in over 490 locations in 61 countries on all five continents.

Existing software quality evaluation standards were used as the basis for the development and endorsement of the software quality criteria and sub-criteria to be assessed in MSC Malaysia Software Product Assessment and Rating Standard. This is also referred to as the “As-is Situation”. The standards used as the basis for development of this assessment standard are as follows:
CMMI (Capability Maturity Model Integration) Ver. 1.3 Dev
ISO⁄IEC 9126 (Software Engineering Product Quality)
ISO⁄IEC 14598 (Information technology - Software product evaluation)
Common Criteria (CC)

In the product assessment, a total of 13 main requirements or criteria, divided into 6 process-related criteria (criteria in which the process of development of the software product is assessed) and 7 product-related criteria (criteria in which the developer’s methods to manage and ensure the actual performance of their software product is assessed), were identified for inclusion in the Standard. These criteria in turn were divided into a further 44 process-related sub-criteria and 32 product-related sub-criteria to make a total of 76 sub-criteria.

Evaluation Report
This evaluation report is based on the findings of the MSC Malaysia Product Assessment & Rating on-site product evaluation. As a supplement to the awarded rating, this report provides recommendations to improve the company’s methods of ensuring product quality.

2) Seven (7) Product-related criteria, ie. criteria in which the developer’s methods to manage and ensure the actual performance of their software product itself is assessed.

Results of the evaluation are as below:
Overall % Compliance 97%
Process-Related Requirements:
- Requirements Management 95%
- Technical Solution 100%
- Product Integration 100%
- Validation 98%
- Verification 100%
