This new offer from Coverity is designed for companies that want to reduce product failures and recalls caused by software problems, to make software changes faster and with less risk, and to achieve breakthroughs in product innovation through highly efficient development.
“We live in a world where the integrity of your business and competitive advantage is directly dependent on the integrity of your software,” said Seth Hallem, Coverity CEO. “Our recent record quarter is evidence that companies worldwide are shifting their investments to driving integrity into the software that runs their products, systems and business. The launch of Coverity Integrity Center marks the next stage of our software integrity strategy and enables customers to leverage the full power of all our software analysis capabilities.”
The Coverity Integrity Center provides a full set of precision software analysis products in a single offer. This combination enables customers to identify and eliminate the root cause of problems during the design, code, build, and test phases of software development. Coverity’s new offering will benefit organisations that employ agile or waterfall methodologies, regardless of whether their development environment is centralised or highly distributed.
For example, at GlobalLogic, the company’s award-winning Velocity platform is a leading standard for distributed Agile-based software product engineering. According to John Hitchcock, vice president of marketing at GlobalLogic, “The Coverity Integrity Center will be a valuable addition to the GlobalLogic Velocity platform. We are excited to work with Coverity to incorporate their software integrity products into our Velocity platform to power the innovative product engineering initiatives we are delivering with our clients worldwide. We are also excited to help Coverity deliver high integrity software products to their own customers through our product engineering services.”
Coverity Integrity Center – Precision Software Analysis
The Coverity Integrity Center provides precision software analysis for architects, developers, build engineers, and quality and delivery teams. It includes the following core capabilities:
• Architecture Analysis – Analyse software design to ensure changes can be made with less risk and components can be easily reused for maximum business agility. Use architectural visualisation and enforcement to identify hidden security backdoors that can cause costly breaches and data losses.
• Static Analysis – Analyse source code for defects that can cause product delays or recalls. Expose security flaws early in the lifecycle so security audit teams don’t slow developers with expensive rework or slow them from working on product innovation.
• Build Analysis – Analyse software builds to identify problems and inefficiencies in the assembly of software that can cause costly product delays. Ensure that all open source components in the final product are documented and secure.
• Dynamic Analysis – Analyse applications as they execute in test environments to identify complex concurrency defects in multi-threaded applications and other crash causing software problems that can cause major delays in testing and delivery.
Software Integrity Strategy
The Coverity Software Integrity Strategy embodies the company’s commitment to help customers ensure the quality, security and performance of software throughout all product development initiatives. The two part strategy is designed to ensure that customers can achieve maximum business value from their investments in software integrity products and to provide an ecosystem of software integrity technology and service providers.

“Coverity’s software integrity strategy is ambitious, unique, and forward thinking. The strategy complements existing application lifecycle management solutions and helps to identify the problems in software brought on by increasing complexity, “said Theresa Lanowitz, founder of voke, inc. “Today, software runs the business; therefore the integrity of software directly impacts the integrity and competitiveness of a business. Software complexity is only increasing, so the most successful development shops in the coming years will be those that identify and adopt new technologies that build quality, performance, and security into every stage of the application lifecycle.”
