Static Code Analysis

Detect security, safety, and reliability issues as you type

As teams develop code with more features, more connectivity, and stricter standards than ever before, it gets increasingly difficult to find bugs and fix security flaws. As teams adopt agile strategies and continuous integration, the pressure mounts to deliver functional, safe, and compliant code on time.

In this environment, how do you stop data breaches and application crashes before they're passed on to the customer? How do you show conformance to standards when they’re difficult to understand and take valuable time to prove? Finding issues earlier in the process is not only simpler and cheaper, it opens up resources to spend more time creating real value for your customers rather than fixing defective code.

Static code analysis is where it all begins. Through complete program analysis of syntax, semantics, variable estimation, and control and data flow, static code analysis finds issues that are difficult or impossible to find through manual testing. That’s because SCA is based on application structure and data, covering a much broader set of scenarios than a developer ever could.

Klocwork takes static code analysis to the next level – making it happen on-the-fly. By bringing the power of analysis to the developer’s desktop and displaying results while lines of code are being written, problems are discovered (and fixed) at the earliest possible point before the build. This means less testing later on and fewer downstream impacts to cost and schedule. Klocwork also broadens analysis coverage well beyond syntax and semantics, identifying critical security, safety, and coding standards issues in front of developers' eyes well before check in. And all this is done within many common IDEs, including Eclipse, Visual Studio, and IntelliJ IDEA.
