Coverity makes debugging code faster and easier, which is a key reason developers across the world use it to improve code integrity. From financial services to telecommunications to aerospace and defense, developers in different verticals use Coverity to build quality and security into their code.
Embedded code in the automotive industry, for example, has different quality and security needs than code designed to store customer data for banks. For this reason, Coverity is easy to configure, producing relevant results for developers writing code in different languages, on different frameworks, and for different purposes. Developers can tailor Coverity’s analyses to find the security weaknesses and quality defects that matter most to them—making their debugging efforts efficient and easy.
Similarly, Coverity’s low false-positive rate allows developers to focus on real weaknesses and defects, rather than spending time separating false positives from important issues. False positives are simply incompatible with the pace of modern software development, which is why accuracy is crucial to development’s adoption of static analysis. When developers have confidence in the integrity of the results, static analysis can become an essential element of the SDLC.

Accurate results paired with precise triage information and remediation advice enable developers to act quickly on issues. Coverity provides developers with actionable information to simplify code review. Security weaknesses and quality defects are not always an obvious fix, so if issues are to be solved, rather than just identified, information on remediation strategies is important.
