Coverity® Security Advisor surfaces security defects in the developer workflow, with accuracy and actionable remediation guidance.
Coverity Security Advisor helps organizations lower their risk and decrease project costs by identifying critical defects that could lead to security vulnerabilities during development.
Coverity Security Advisor utilizes the Coverity SAVE® static analysis verification engine to intelligently test code with a deep understanding of behavior and criticality. It accurately identifies defects in Java web applications, including injection errors such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), path traversal and many more.
One of the primary reasons that legacy security tools have failed in development is due to high false positives, or inaccurate results. We designed and built our engine from the ground up to address the complexity of today's modern applications, which leads to more accurate results.
Coverity SAVE analysis innovations for Java web application security include:
Coverity Connect is the collaborative issue management console that efficiently manages all issues surfaced by Coverity development testing solutions to resolution within a unified workflow.

Another key reason legacy security tools have failed in development is because they require security expertise and lack actionable remediation guidance. Through a deep understanding of the code and application, the Coverity Security Advisor remediation engine provides precise guidance with specific information about the right way to fix a defect and the best place to fix it in the code. This ensures your developers remediate defects faster, and 'get it right the first time.'
Coverity Security Advisor provides bi-directional integration with existing lifecycle tools to make development testing a natural part of the SDLC process.
