Coverity Announces Certified Partner Program

Coverity (News - Alert), Inc., a major player in development testing, has introduced its Certified Partner Program, which expands its development testing ecosystem by integrating multiple types of code quality, security and compliance analysis solutions into the Coverity Development Testing Platform workflow.

"As development organizations adopt multiple best-of-breed analysis solutions to gain intelligence into code - and risks - they quickly find the management of multiple point solutions is neither effective nor efficient," said Jennifer Johnson, chief marketing officer for Coverity, in a statement.

"The Coverity Development Testing Platform is embedded in the software development workflow at more than 1,100 of our customers, enabling development to find and fix critical quality and security issues as code is written,” said Johnson.

“With the introduction of the Coverity Certified Partner program, we are making it as easy as possible for our customers to find and fix an even wider range of software risks in their existing development workflow, quickly and efficiently," she said.

Officials with Coverity said that the Certified Partner Program includes a range of industry-proven code testing solutions.

Company officials said that new partner integrations include the Black Duck Suite from Black Duck Software (News - Alert), which automates open source governance and compliance, and QA-C, QA-C++ and QA-Verify from PRQA | Programming Research, which identify coding standards and best practice compliance issues with MISRA (Motor Industry Software Reliability Association) and other key standards.

"The benefit of using open source in projects is undeniable, and so is the need for visibility as early as possible in the software development lifecycle to ensure compliance with licenses, obligations and company policies,” said Phil Odence, vice president of corporate and business development for Black Duck.

Odence said that by becoming a Coverity Certified Partner, Black Duck is able to offer a truly integrated governance solution for the Coverity Development Testing Platform, enabling mutual customers to fully realize the power of open source technologies and methods to achieve business objectives faster.
