Perforce Software, a provider of solutions to enterprise teams requiring productivity, visibility, and scale along the development lifecycle, today announced the general availability of the latest version of its static code analysis solution, Helix QAC.
With the latest release, Helix QAC now offers complete CERT C++ rules coverage. This provides development teams that work in tightly regulated and safety-critical industries — including automotive, aerospace and defense, medical device, and rail — with greater software security.
This enhancement is especially critical for the automotive industry. Helix QAC is considered by many of the leading automotive parts developers to be the de facto static code analysis tool for functional safety and standards compliance — especially compliance with MISRA® and AUTOSAR C++14.
With complete CERT C++ coverage, Helix QAC can provide automotive developers with the peace of mind that their software will be safeguarded against security vulnerabilities.
“Helix QAC has consistently delivered comprehensive functional safety and security compliance for embedded software development industries, and these improvements have helped to solidify it as the industry leading Static Analysis tool for C/C++,” said Product Manager Stuart Foster.
“Now with complete CERT C++ compliance rules coverage, Helix QAC delivers coverage for not only breadth, but depth of analysis results for the most accurate, precise security and issue detection.”
In addition to complete CERT C++ rules coverage, the latest release expands compliance coverage for the following standards:
- 100% CERT C rules coverage.
- 100% CERT C POSIX rules coverage.
- 100% MISRA C:2012 including Amendment 2 coverage.
- 98% ISO/IEC TS 17961 (C Secure) coverage.
- 91% AUTOSAR C++14 coverage.
While Helix QAC is already known for its in-depth and high-accuracy analysis of C and C++ programming languages, these improvements have helped solidify static code analysis tool as the most accurate and precise comprehensive testing solution for functional safety, standards compliance, and compliance traceability across all embedded software development teams that work in tightly regulated and safety-critical industries.
