Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Coverity is scalable.""The most valuable feature of Coverity is the wrapper. We use the wrapper to build the C++ component, then we use the other code analysis to analyze the code to the build object, and then send back the result to the SonarQube server. Additionally, it is a powerful capabilities solution.""The ability to scan code gives us details of existing and potential vulnerabilities. What really matters for us is to ensure that we are able to catch vulnerabilities ahead of time.""The app analysis is the most valuable feature as I know other solutions don't have that.""One of the most valuable features is Contributing Events. That particular feature helps the developer understand the root cause of a defect. So you can locate the starting point of the defect and figure out exactly how it is being exploited.""I encountered a bug with Coverity, and I opened a ticket. Support provided me with a workaround. So it's working at the moment, or at least it seems to be.""We were very comfortable with the initial setup."

"CyberFlood's best features are its user-friendliness and scheduling function."

More Spirent CyberFlood Pros →

"We'd like it to be faster.""Right now, the Coverity executable is around 1.2GB to download. If they can reduce it to approximately 600 or 700MB, that would be great. If they decrease the executable, it will be much easier to work in an environment like Docker.""When I put my code into Coverity for scanning, the code information of the product is in the system. The solution could be improved by providing a SBOM, a software bill of material.""Coverity is not stable.""The solution could use more rules.""Coverity could improve the ease of use. Sometimes things become difficult and you need to follow the guides from the website but the guides could be better.""Coverity is far from perfection, and I'm not 100 percent sure it's helping me find what I need to find in my role. We need exactly what we are looking for, i.e. security errors and vulnerabilities. It doesn't seem to be reporting while we are changing our code."
