You hear about threats every day. Here is your chance to do something about it.

You and your fellow developers have changed the world. In fact, a very strong argument can be made that we are as dependent on your application software as we are on oil. Your code touches every aspect of our lives and that makes AppSec an absolute mandatory requirement.

Ironically, by making our world better with your inventions, you have paved a direct path for hackers into our lifestyle and our most personal moments. Not only can hackers damage your product, your company and your brand, they can put lives at risk by adjusting the braking system on a car, messing with pacemakers and worse. You have to take responsibility for the security of your code, your product, your brand, and your livelihood.

Klocwork Insight automates the detection of hundreds of potential security vulnerabilities in source code from the convenience of your desktop. It gives you and your fellow coders a consistent, best practice approach to identifying, fixing and managing real security vulnerabilities as the code is being written. Here is your chance to do something about it. To make a difference in the end-users experience. That is why we say AppSec demands Insight.

Built-in checkers for secure coding standards

Most businesses need to comply with multiple coding standards to ensure software security. Klocwork Insight includes built-in checkers to support all of the leading standards:

  • CWE
  • CWE/SANS Top 25
  • CERT
  • OWASP
  • DISA STIG
  • MISRA

A configurable arsenal of AppSec checkers out of the box, or create your own

Klocwork Insight ships with hundreds of checkers. Our source code analysis engine can be tailored to enforce the rules for compliance with each standard by enabling or disabling individual checkers or full checker groups to meet the specific needs of your own software development environment and processes. We also worked with some of the largest consumer, military, communications, electronic, mobile and other companies in the world to create a checker API, providing you and your team members with the ability to quickly and easily create your own custom AppSec checkers.

Examples of weaknesses Klocwork Insight is engineered to detect:

  • Buffer overflows
  • Un-validated user input
  • Injection
  • Cross-site scripting
  • Information leakage
  • Vulnerable coding practices
  • Banned APIs
  • Memory and resource leaks
  • Concurrency violations
  • Infinite loops
  • Dereferencing NULL pointers
  • Usage of uninitialized data
  • Resource management
  • Memory allocation errors

Spreading security standards across the organization

Consistency across the team is critical. That's why Klocwork Insight pushes the chosen security coding standards and their associated checkers and taxonomies to every developer's desktop. By doing this, everyone is notified as they write their code if they have violated the standards or introduced any vulnerabilities or defects. The win - you and your team members can fix any potential AppSec problems immediately, before you check-in your code. This frees up valuable developer time to work on more critical assignments.

To help you get new team members up to speed as quickly as possible, Klocwork Insight provides issue specific links to our help knowledge base, allowing the entire team to share and learn from industry best practices for each specific defect type, explaining the risk of each and how to mitigate against them.
