Synopsys Enhances Coverity
June 12, 2018
has released several new product features that enable developers to
build secure applications faster. The latest Coverity release,
recognized by Gartner and Forrester as a leading static application
security testing (SAST) tool, features seamless integration with
Synopsys' completely rebuilt eLearning platform, an on-demand security
training solution for developers. The integration provides developers
with convenient access—directly from the Coverity interface—to short,
context-relevant training modules to help them address security issues
Coverity detects in their code. The Coverity release also includes
security analysis enhancements for detecting more vulnerabilities across
a variety of programming languages and frameworks, including the ability
to identify code patterns vulnerable to the highly publicized Spectre
The integration uses a proprietary vulnerability analysis tool to match detected CWEs with relevant eLearning course content based on a highest-confidence-level algorithmic assessment. Unlike other training tools, eLearning links to specific lessons in a course to ensure developers receive the most relevant information.
eLearning includes 37 courses covering a wide range of application security topics, including risk analysis, authentication, security standards, defensive programming for web and mobile apps, threat modeling, security testing strategy, and more.
