In addition, it provides superior code navigation and analysis tools," wrote InfoWorld judges. "This is a comprehensive and very impressive package."

Klocwork's automated solutions identify software and security defects, as well as architectural and system flaws, and automate the code review process. Klocwork provides the only solution combining these capabilities together into one integrated suite of products that allows a holistic view of the development process. By seamlessly integrating into the developer's IDE of choice, Klocwork can help detect and eliminate software security vulnerabilities and quality defects before the code is entered into the build process.
