Coverity offers native, high-confidence, high-impact scan analysis to deliver only the most actionable results to developers. Security pros who want complete coverage and have a higher tolerance for false positives can dial up analysis through a scan configuration setting. Software Risk Manager centralizes results for all scan types and results from other vendors. Security pros use the tool to determine the highest-priority issues across their portfolios and weed out possible false positives by applying filter options such as policy, age, predicated status, and an ML confidence rating based on triage history. Custom checkers also help Coverity maintain its ‘very low false-alarm rate,’ as one customer reference put it."
