Coverity Incorporated has announced the availability of its Coverity Prevent Software Quality System, an automated solution that identifies and resolves vulnerabilities in C, C++ and Java source code. A technology (patent pending) the company calls Software DNA Mapping supposedly maps 100% of the paths in any piece of software. According to Coverity, its technology uses multiple code analysis engines, along with a resolution system, which is set up to allow organizations to mirror their existing software quality processes to fix coding defects automatically. Coverity's new tool can be licensed on an annual basis. Pricing is based on the number of lines of code to be analyzed.
"After analyzing one billion lines of code, we have come to understand that identifying software defects is only one part of improving software quality. By understanding build systems automatically, understanding code automatically, and plugging in a workflow system that developers want to use, we now have a new solution to the software quality problem that customers can deploy quickly and easily," said Ben Chelf, chief technology officer of Coverity.
