Thales selects Rogue Wave Software Klocwork as static code analysis tool
Rogue Wave Software, the largest independent provider of cross-platform software development tools and embedded components, announces that Thales in the UK has selected Klocwork as its static code analysis tool.
“Because of Klocwork we have increased confidence in our code, the desktop analysis features will reduce costs associated with fixing errors further down the line. Therefore, we are able to get products to the market faster, and can adhere to internal and external compliance,” says Jack Cunningham, director of software engineering for Thales in the UK.
With the help of Klocwork, Thales continues to make people, property, transport and information safer and more secure. Protecting vital data and proving standards compliance is important for any system. The focus on the convergence of military and civil technologies for both domestic and export markets makes the requirements for Thales nothing short of mission-critical.
“Unlike any other static code analysis tool, Klocwork supports standards compliance for MISRA, OWASP, CWE, DISA STIG, CERT, SAMATE, and FDA and is ISO 26262 certified,” says Ian McLeod, chief product officer at Rogue Wave Software. “We pride ourselves on providing mission and safety-critical companies with the tools they need to confidently release software.”
Klocwork is used extensively to support the globally-recognized MISRA coding standards, a mandatory requirement in automotive systems. MISRA is now being adopted for safety critical systems by companies in all industry and Thales UK will employ Klocwork to ensure that its code satisfies both MISRA C++:2008 and MISRA C:2012 along with its internal code standards.
