Many of these applications are built on the TaaS model and allow for industry evaluation and reporting from a particular point of view, such as VeraCode used for security testing at the code level.
The source code analysers can also be automated for you. These source code automators can actually test your source code as it is written or run over night and a scheduled macro or cron and you can meet in the morning to se if the report is viable. This is especially valuable for security testing, perform monitoring and code non-functional static testing.
Frameworks can also be analysed for rejective code allowing for visibility into the functional capability of any given software for the overlay code. This allows game providers and high level application designers to evaluate their code as they go for integration into the lower layer sand whether the code will be efficiently written and will be compliant with the lower framework. This is incredibly important for most businesses and is usually a decision taken without any analysis.
There are many tools available to analyse source code, web applications, systems, and integration code, not forgetting system integration and a design aspect, so western your code and application will work within the present environment ¡, both at a functional level and a code level.
However, a developer needs to be aware of common programming mistakes and how these flaws may compromise security, performance, function and interaction. One benefit of constant SCA is that your software teams start to get a feel for what is functional and how to write code in a more efficient and cost effective manner. This is not a service but a by product of the service we provide. And remember no tool is perfect it is the company that is evaluating the code itself that provides the value we are not yet at a place where we can replace humans completely in SCA.
