"Innovation of problem solutions for source codes"

What do you like best?

It is a quite simple software to use, it provides quite complete reports regarding the information of the problems found in the source code of my page. It is fast and authentic, the analysis is comprehensive, contributes in this way to find solutions quickly and easily to prevent future complications with the website.

What do you dislike?

The interface is a little charged, which has made using it difficult and complicated to understand. Sometimes it has happened that the analysis throws some erroneous information and it has had to be inspected manually, this delays and complicates the work.

Now the codings of the company will have a high quality thanks to this software, it is very useful because, anyone likes to be warned before any error occurs, and Coverity gives you that great possibility. You can find solutions to errors so that your codes will always be in good condition and your product will be free from unsafe faults.

"The best quality for the analysis of the code."

What do you like best?

I like how easy it is to use and the great capacity of immediate analysis that this software provides with respect to the source code. It explains quickly the errors and defects that the code can contain.

What do you dislike?

There has been a small number of cases in which it gives a false alarm of error in the code, and complicates the work. Interface a bit complicated to use.

It is a very useful software that will help to keep away from your codes the defects and any vulnerability that may exist, in this way you will find faster solutions and all your codifications will be of the best quality.

"Coverity scan static analysis"

What do you like best?

It is effective when it comes to finding defects, errors and security vulnerabilities in the source code. The analysis of the corresponding code is effective which allows to correct the errors quickly in order to find solutions, thus representing a great utility for my company.

What do you dislike?

In my opinion, the interface is a bit overloaded. It presents some faults when presenting the analysis of the codes and we had to redo the work of looking for defects because we found deficiency in the analysis of small errors.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is really useful to maintain the quality when you want to have a large and long-term project in which the equipment has different encodings, with the great help of Coverity it is possible to achieve the codification of all of them before existing vulnerabilities to achieve a clean and smooth job any error.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Many things were achieved in my company, in which customers, colleagues and business partners are satisfied.

Security risks have been avoided

Ease of use of our product, also with a better quality

"Best Static Code analyzer"

What do you like best?

Coverity is the best static code analyzer. It's actually a beast with so many functionalities. It's a must-have tool for all enterprises. I like the following features the most.

- Nice Graphical interface

- Plugins/integration with different code repositories/build frameworks.

- SSO / LDAP integration to login.

- Not very tough to learn the controls.

- Detailed information for each defect.

- Generation of detailed Coverity reports

- Ability to filter / control various issues / defects.

What do you dislike?

The entire coverity System is not a simple product. You need to spend some time to get used to their controls and all the functionalities. Sometimes, we see a lot of false negatives in the static code analysis. Even after marking some defects as invalid, we still see the same issues again and again.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main use of Coverity is to do static code analysis. It helps to discover a lot of issues with the badly written code (buffer overflows, NULL de-reference, dangling pointer etc). This also helps to fix major security issues in the code which is very very important in the software development life cycle.

More suggestions on how to solve the security bug and sometimes fail to want to upload a project.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recommended for new developers of any language that need to find a security flaw.

"Coverity"

What do you like best?

It scrutinizes code with somewhat blind logic and address weak point of the code. It is good at identifying vulnerable points and helps toward future proof coding. Automatic backround run also make its integration into code flow seamless. Code analysis and suggestion is quite amazing and accurate so help the fix or improvement a lot.

What do you dislike?

By nature, it runs blind test to many degree so usage based limits are not well honored. It's like double edge of sword so it is its own strong point but at the same time somewhat stubburn point also. Review or coordinated work support is one of lacking capability. It just has tracking capability currently.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For longer term projects, across large group of teams with different coding level background, coverity can be a great tool to maintain quality and plug possible vulnerable coding practice through through check.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Robustness in code in general. Great help in achieving uniform coding quality across multiple team with diverse background.

"Coverity - Static Code Analysis Tool of Choice"

What do you like best?

The 2017 version of Coverity scans the latest of version of C++ and Javascript (ES6) better than the other SAST tools.

What do you dislike?

Coverity's licensing is based on the number of developers who work on a component that is scanned, rather than the number of developers who actually use the tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Business problems being solved by using Coverity are to uncover security vulnerabilities in code before code is released. We have caught security vulnerabilities before code has been released to the livesite.

"Detailed and Complete "

What do you like best?

Specific feedback broken down to the line of code where the opportunity for improvement has been found. Can easily track which issues have been addressed and what the resolution was, or that code is as expected or otherwise won't be updated and it will quit flagging that issue.

What do you dislike?

Adds overhead to the build, slowing them down a bit. I also understand that it is fairly expensive although I don't manage the budget so I just try to make good use of the results.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We also considered using Visual Studio Team System tools, NAnt and SonarQube.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Shipping code with fewer bugs. We also used it to evaluate changes from one compiler version to the next.

"Great tool for finding code defects"

What do you like best?

Coverity was able to find code defects that other products were unable to find.

It was incorporated in our build easily and support was great.

What do you dislike?

We hit a few defects when looking at our million+ lines of code project. Some were

not code defects but flagged as defects. Others we would like to pass certian

constructs without warning, but were unable.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to increase reliability of our product which made our customers very happy.
