Coverity: an MRI for your software.

Code is complex. Ensuring its quality and security shouldn’t be. We’ll shine a light into your code and give you critical insight into where you have quality and security issues, and where to focus your testing efforts. So you know that the critical issues are fixed, and the code that matters is tested. Before it even leaves development.

COVERITY MEANS:

  • Early visibility into software risk. So you have an opportunity to correct it.
  • Predictable releases. Whether it’s a fixed date or continuous delivery.
  • Accountability for quality and security in development. It’s everyone’s job.
  • Confident decisions. When it comes to testing, know when ‘done’ really means ‘done’.

The business impact.

Learn how we transformed our testing process through automation to ship over 50% faster and reduce customer-found defects by 50%.

Monitor. Measure. Manage.

Geographically distributed teams. Offshore and outsourcing partners. Open source. With all of these moving parts in the software supply chain, you need continuous visibility into code—and risk—to make intelligent decisions.

Define quality, security and testing policies, with metrics that matter to your business.

Monitor and pinpoint hotspots of risk, such as critical defects outstanding or untested code, so you know where to focus your resources.

Measure and benchmark teams against each other—and against industry averages—to continually improve quality and security over time.

Manage projects and teams to determine when projects are ready for release and what areas need your attention.

What to test. When to test. We'll tell you.

Every code change is an opportunity to introduce new defects—and risk. With limited testing time and resources in development, simple coverage metrics that lack intelligence is like throwing darts at a dartboard blindfolded. Through our code intelligence and patented change impact analysis, we’ll tell you where your testing gaps are—and prioritize the tests you need to run—based on the impact of the code change.

Use your precious testing time wisely. Focus your resources on the high-risk code. Gain assurance that you have tested what matters.

Make every developer an “A” player.

Developers love Coverity. We help them find and fix critical quality and security defects in their code. Quickly. We have the industry’s most accurate code analysis. So developers don’t waste time with noisy results. We take the guesswork out of fixing issues with our intuitive source code navigation and remediation guidance. So developers can fix issues in minutes. And we integrate into your development workflow, not the other way around. So you get clean code from your developers the first time around.

Maximum productivity. Minimum disruption.

Waterfall. Agile. Hybrid. No problem.

Whether you’re agile, waterfall or somewhere in-between, we’ll help you get your code right the first time. Our platform works seamlessly within your current process, and is flexible to adapt as your process evolves over time. And because testing becomes a shared responsibility across Development and QA, we help your teams work better together, toward a common goal of delivering better software. Read our white paper to learn more about development testing for Agile enterprises.

Enforceable process. Integrated workflow.

Developer accountability for code quality and security requires an enforceable process. Our platform provides a single workflow for development teams to collaborate and manage issues to closure. And you can track the entire process, from automatic assignment of issues to the appropriate developer to enforcement of defect fix SLAs.

We adapt to the way you work. Not the other way around. Our platform provides integrations with the market-leading SDLC tools you use today. View our full list of SDLC integrations.

Multiple tools. One process.

We know you probably use multiple analysis tools—no one tool can find every type of defect. That’s why our platform is open, so you can import third party analysis results into our workflow to view and manage all types of defects in the same way. Your developers are more productive by not having to deal with multiple tools and workflows. And you get a single view of software risks.

Verify compliance. Check.

Regardless of industry, meeting external regulations and internal standards that call for software verification and validation is now a natural course of business. Our platform enables you to easily demonstrate compliance with a variety of regulations and standards—including but not limited to DO-178C, MISRA, ISO 26262, FDA, PCI and OWASP—as part of your development process.

 

  • Define code quality, security and testing policies aligned to the regulations and standards that matter to your business
  • Automate code and test analysis for assurance that software has been tested and defects removed according to your policies
  • Enforce a process for managing issues to closure for consistency and traceability
  • Generate reports—we provide out of the box templates or create your own—to document compliance for audit purposes

Developer-first security.

With the complexity of software and attacks on the rise, security can no longer be left to the security team to tackle on their own. Security teams don’t have the scale or knowledge of the code to find or fix all of the issues. Development must become part of the solution and make security part of its culture. Our platform helps developers build-in security from the start, effectively and efficiently, and build a bridge between development and security teams.

Set policies for code security and testing aligned to OWASP, PCI or other standards

Automatically identify critical security defects as code is written

Help developers fix security issues quickly with prescriptive remediation guidance

Gain early and continuous visibility into security risks against your defined policies
