Why Static Analysis?
Humans Make Mistakes.
For every 1,000 lines of code, there are between 15 and 50 defects1.
Static analysis can identify those defects, vulnerabilities, and compliance issues as you code. That means you can locate vulnerable code and coding flaws right away. And you can fix them faster, for lower overall costs.

Which Flaws Do Static Analysis Tools Detect?
Coding Rule Violations. Compliance Issues. Security Flaws.
Static analysis inspects your source code without having to run any programs. It’s also known as static code analysis and source code analysis. And, tools that do this type of analysis are often simply known as code quality tools.
You can run source code analysis as soon as you’ve written code. And, you can use it on legacy code as well to identify existing errors or establish a baseline.
When you run source code analysis, the code is automatically scanned for vulnerabilities and flaws. And, this solution can find errors missed by compilers and manual code reviews.
Typically, source code analysis solutions can generate thousands of diagnostics. But, you can apply filters, suppressions, and baselines to help target the most critical defects. This enables you to fix what needs to be fixed, and deliver a quality product on time.
