SAST static analysis

Fix faster today and code better tomorrow

With the Code Sight™ IDE plugin, Coverity provides developers all the information they need to fix identified issues—detailed descriptions, categories, severities, CWE information, defect location, detailed remediation guidance, and dataflow traces—as well as issue triage and management features, within their IDE. In addition, Coverity provides context-specific eLearning lessons specific to CWEs identified in their code so they can fix it quickly today and avoid similar defects in the future.

Coverity CWE coverage

Maintain speed without compromising accuracy

With Code Sight, developers get accurate analysis in seconds in the IDE as they code. High-fidelity incremental analysis runs automatically in the background and uses the same comprehensive Coverity analysis engine used for full central analysis, ensuring consistent, accurate results.

Simplify security risk and compliance analysis

With Coverity you can get an aggregated risk profile of your entire application portfolio through built-in reports as well as APIs that allow you to pull results into your existing risk reporting solutions. Easily filter identified vulnerabilities by category, view trend reports, prioritize remediation of vulnerabilities based on criticality, and manage security policy compliance across teams and projects. The Coverity “analysis without build” feature enables security teams to identify security issues in software without building it. Simply specify the location of the project, and Coverity will automatically identify, download, and analyze all required dependencies.

Integrate and automate static analysis in your SDLC

Coverity integrates with popular IDEs, issue trackers, build and CI tools, source code management (SCM) tools, and application life cycle management (ALM) solutions. In addition, REST APIs allow you to initiate Coverity scans in virtually any build automation solution.
