Coverity, Inc., the leader in improving software quality and security automatically in C/C++/C# and Java, today announced the company’s customer base has grown to more than 500 customers.In addition to Coverity’s growth, in 2008 the company has made the following accomplishments:
* New Software Readiness Product – Coverity Software Readiness Manager™ allows QA, development managers and executives to objectively assess the release readiness of their critical code by combining essential data from multiple sources including Prevent, Coverity’s industry-leading static analysis product. Software Readiness Manager helps development teams deliver high-integrity code that successfully meets quality standards to align product development with business goals.
* New Dynamic Analysis Product – Coverity Thread Analyzer™ for Java observes code as it is executed and automatically and predictably identifies race conditions and deadlocks. The product is unique in the field of dynamic analysis because its sophisticated technology detects not only problems that will occur in limited testing environments, but also problems that have the potential to occur over extended operations in field environments.
* Codefast Acquisitioni – Coverity acquired build management vendor Codefast in 2008. The technology acquired from Codefast will be enhanced to take advantage of Coverity’s patented Software DNA Map™ analysis system, further expanding the company’s platform of products that enable software development teams to ensure the integrity of their code.
* Scan Report on Open Source Software 2008 – The Scan site (www.scan.coverity.com) is an outgrowth of Coverity’s relationship with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to help improve the quality and security of open source software. This year, Coverity released a report on the Scan project based on 2 years of recurring analysis of over 250 popular open source code bases with Coverity Prevent™. The report detailed the continuing improvement of open source software, representing a collection of code analysis data unlike anything else in the world, spanning 14,238 individual project analysis runs for a total of nearly 10 billion lines of code over a 2 year period.
