Be compliant with industry security standards
Scan your code using a constantly-updated rule set (4K+) based on industry standards including CWE/SANS-25, OWASP Top 10, PCI-DSS, and more. Apply weighting to focus on the rules most important to you.
Integrate with your IDE for continuous protection
Add Code Security to your IDE for instant analysis. Get recommendations on how to code more securely. Available for leading IDEs and over 30 languages.
Target the most important threats first
Calculate your risk index and the hours of effort required to reach your target security level. Use the “what-if simulator” to adjust your target security level and effort, and then generate a custom action plan.
How Static Code Analysis Improves Application Security
A static code analysis checks the source code or executable files of an application without actually running the application. Static code analysis can be done manually during a code review, or using a tool such as Kiuwan Code Analysis.
Static code analysis tools can check for a broad range of common programming errors, in-line comments and documentation, complexity, code styling, and more.
A Static Application Security Testing (SAST) tool is a type of static code analyzer that is designed to search for security flaws. Kiuwan Code Security scans application code using over 4000 rules based on industry standards, including the OWASP Top 10 web application vulnerabilities, CWE/SANS Top 25 most dangerous software errors, PCI-DSS security policies, HIPAA compliance, MISRA-C, and more.
A Kiuwan Code Security scan can be run as a point-in-time audit of your application’s source code. Or, you can integrate Kiuwan Code Security with your IDE for continuous scanning.
Focus Remediation Efforts for the Best Results
There are a lot of static code analysis tools on the market. But what makes Kiuwan unique is its powerful tools for managing and remediating security vulnerabilities.
In a perfect world, you’d fix 100% of the vulnerabilities found during static code analysis. Unless you have unlimited resources and time, you need to make informed decisions about which vulnerabilities must be fixed to meet your goals.
Kiuwan helps with Action Plans that include an estimated level of effort to reach your goal. Review your current risk level and an estimated effort to reach your goal risk level. Manually create an action plan by selecting just the vulnerabilities to fix, using filters for priority, type, etc. Or, let Kiuwan generate an automatic action plan for you.
Perform a “what if” analysis by adjusting your available resources and target risk level. Set rule weights to focus on the security vulnerabilities most important to you, or adjust the built-in assumptions used to calculate effort.
