Kiuwan supports the work of developers in two ways: with an IDE Plug-In and with CI Integrations.
To see which CI integrations are supported, please visit this page: Developers - Integrations
Kiuwan IDE Plug-In
Kiuwan allows for a true shift-left approach by integrating with all the main IDEs.
Kiuwan for Developers is a plug-in for development IDEs that facilitates and automates compliance with security normatives, quality standards and best practices for several languages.
It provides the following benefits:
The Kiuwan IDE Plug-in monitors and reports on the security, quality, and efficiency of your code at the point that it is written. This immediate feedback provides you with the opportunity to improve your code before it is delivered.
The Kiuwan IDE Plug-In can work in two different modes:
It allows you to analyze your application source code directly within (and fully integrated into) your IDE. You can analyze the whole project (or just some specific files), then review the detected vulnerabilities and defects, fix them and re-analyze, without exiting your IDE.
The plug-in also lets you "download" the vulnerabilities and defects stored in Kiuwan (in the last Baseline, or in a specific Delivery, or even the issues to be fixed according to a defined Action Plan). This way, you can go directly to the issues you must fix, just double-click on the defects and go directly to the offending line of code.
By using both modes, you can get a comprehensive understanding of:
Analyzer and Remote Viewer modes are separately licensed.
Please check your Kiuwan License to see available modes.
