Synopsys Expands Coverity Support for New Programming Languages, Secure Coding Standards, and DevOps Toolchain Integrations

Latest release adds support for Scala and VB.NET, SEI CERT C Coding Standard, and enhanced Jenkins plugin

Synopsys Inc. announced its Coverity 2018.01 release, the newest version of its industry-leading static analysis tool, which analyses source code to detect critical quality and security defects early in the software development life cycle. Coverity 2018.01 extends the tool’s support for new programming languages, coding standards, and development tool integrations.

Coverity 2018.01 highlights:
* Introduces support for Scala and VB.NET.
* Provides full support for SEI CERT C coding standard rules (2016 edition).
* Includes enhanced plugins for Jenkins continuous integration (CI) server to enable automated testing in DevOps environments.

“Secure, high quality software is becoming increasingly an imperative for business success and the well-being of end users in the face of the growing threat landscape,” said Andreas Kuehlmann, general manager of the Synopsys Software Integrity Group.

“In parallel, the pace and process by which software is developed are changing dramatically. For this reason, the tools used to find defects and potential security vulnerabilities throughout the development life cycle need to evolve as well. By supporting new programming languages, secure coding standards, and out-of-the-box integrations with modern development tools, Synopsys enables organisations to expand their software portfolios and embrace new development paradigms like DevOps with the assurance that their code is high quality and secure.”

Coverity has been recognised as a leading application security testing solution by Gartner, Forrester, IDC, and VDC, and is a core component of the Synopsys Software Integrity Platform.
