Why Static Analysis, Code Quality Tools?

Static Analysis for C, C++, C#, Java, JavaScript, Python, Kotlin

For Safe, Secure, High-Quality Code. Faster.

Static code analysis identifies defects, vulnerabilities, and compliance issues as you code. It finds issues that are often missed by other tools and methods, such as compilers and manual code reviews. With static code analysis, you can fix coding issues earlier — lowering overall costs and enabling you to deliver a quality product on time.

Benefits of Perforce Static Analysis


Coding Standards Compliance

Ensure your software is compliant with published, well-established coding standards, such as MISRA and CERT. Or, your own internal standard.


Functional Safety Certification

Perforce static code analyzers are pre-qualified for use in safety-critical applications. This makes it easier for you to gain certification for industry standards, such as ISO 26262 and IEC 62304.

Static Application Security Test (SAST)

Build continuous code security monitoring into your development process. SAST tools help to ensure that secure coding practices are properly implemented and that vulnerabilities are removed at the earliest opportunity. Review our SAST tutorial to help you understand more about this testing and why it is important.

Code Quality Management

Automate reporting on code quality trends and compliance status to effectively measure code quality metrics and track defects.

Large-Scale Projects

Manual code reviews are time-consuming and often vulnerable to human error. Perforce’s static code analyzers quickly inspect millions of lines of source code, identifying vulnerabilities in both legacy and new code.s

Developer Productivity

Perforce’s static analyzers provide developers with feedback as they code, which reduces the number of mistakes and time spent on rework – lowering overall project costs.
