Synopsys offers the Protecode automated software composition analysis (SCA) tool that enables organizations to gain visibility into the composition of purchased software, make better buying decisions, and manage the ongoing risk of operating complex systems and software.
We also offer a comprehensive set of static analysis solutions with a holistic approach to application security. Our static application security testing (SAST) managed services offering provides scale with reach across the breadth of an organization’s application portfolio as well as elasticity to dynamically respond to evolving threats, shifting business priorities, and workload ebbs and flows.
The source code analysis provided by SAST is inherently more capable in contextually analyzing multi-tier development frameworks with their associated diverse components such as back-end business logic, client-facing views, and various configuration files. The manual inspection step of SAST can more effectively identify subtle vulnerability patterns. This is possible through a human understanding of context from deep-dive analysis of the components in scope. Additionally, manual inspection eliminates noise and false positives during the assessment, resulting in discovery of important vulnerabilities with actionable remediation guidance for each one.
