Synopsys Introduces Code Sight Standard Edition to Enable Secure Software Development
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., February 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Synopsys, Inc.. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today announced the general availability of Code Sight™ Standard Edition, a standalone version of the Code Sight plugin for integrated development environments (IDEs) that allows developers to quickly find and fix security flaws in source code, open source dependencies, infrastructure files as as code, etc., before validating their code. Code Sight Standard Edition relies on Synopsys’ Rapid Scan Static and Rapid Scan SCA technology to provide fast, lightweight application security scanning in the developer’s IDE, avoiding costly rework caused by issues discovered later in the software development lifecycle (SDLC).
By allowing developers to fix security flaws while they code, Code Sight Standard Edition reduces the burden on downstream security testing and minimizes costly rework to address issues discovered after developers have moved on to others. projects. Code Sight Standard Edition, which is currently available for the Visual Studio Code IDE, works independently of centralized security testing tools such as Coverity SAST and Black Duck SCA, which are typically used later in the SDLC. Developers can download and install CodeSight directly from the VS Code Marketplace and start analyzing their code in less than five minutes. Code Sight Standard Edition is available for free for a 30-day trial period.
“In the era of modern software development, speed is king and software risk equals business risk,” said Jason Schmitt, Managing Director of Synopsys Software Integrity Group. “This means that developers take on a huge responsibility in protecting their organizations and they don’t have the luxury of stopping and analyzing. Equipping them with technology that helps them write more secure code upfront can dramatically reduce the time spent fixing security flaws in source and code later in the SDLC, however, these benefits cannot be achieved if developers are forced to change the way they work or switch between different Code Sight is unique because it integrates industry-leading open source and code analysis technology, optimized for developers’ demands for speed, all directly into the tool they already use.”
