Coverity tool’s 8.7 version expands and enhances analysis via plugins with IDEs like Android Studio, Microsoft Visual Studio, IntelliJ and Eclipse.
Synopsys has released the 8.7 version of its Covertiy static analysis tool that features enhanced security analysis for mobile and web applications. Along with the recent acquisitions of Cigital and Codiscope, this latest version aims to provide enterprise-level security analysis and broad programming language support for today's application security demands, according to the company.
The 8.7 version expands and enhances its desktop analysis for mobile and web applications through plugins with popular IDEs including Android Studio, Microsoft Visual Studio, IntelliJ and Eclipse.
"Mobile and web applications are used widely across organisations to conduct business and process sensitive information, so addressing critical security vulnerabilities before they cause disruption for employees or customers is essential," said Andreas Kuehlmann, senior vice president and general manager of Synopsys' Software Integrity Group.
