When you are a developer, your job is generally much more than simply developing a solution. It is much intricate than it sounds. You have to ensure that the solution developed is secured or not. For this matter, it is important for developers to always keep up with the latest trends in technology and tools that can enhance their quality of development and code quality. With the increasing number of threats, it is becoming important for development professionals to ensure security of the developed solution. Attacks and threats are of many kinds and with the number of hackers also increasing; you never know which aspect of your development is vulnerable where if your code is affected, your entire solution can fall on its face.

5 Developer Tools to Secure Code

CodiScope Jacks

CodiScope Jacks is one of those tools enabling developers to secure their code. When code is debugged in static analysis is your first step towards covering your code from vulnerabilities. With the help of Jacks, you can scan JavaScript programs and can also plan to scan code from Java programs where you will get support for other languages too.


It identifies issues by line number and notifies the event and patches available to secure the code. Every event where the code is insecure is flagged and explained with a reason. It triggers alerts for situation such as insecure scripts or hacks or any server side injection. It can also detect malicious JavaScript Code if executed at the server side.


IBM Security AppScan

To ensure security, IBM has introduced this brilliant tool call IBM Security App Scan that leverages both static and dynamic analysis. For this tool, the application is treated as black box and testing is performed by the tools to look for vulnerabilities.


It also performs interactive analysis where the agent examines how the application reacts to testing at the application server. Also, there is separate analysis created especially for mobile applications so mobile development specialist can make the most of it. If vulnerabilities are found, then AppScan notifies the developer. It also avails reports, feature analytics to reduce false positives.


Rogue Wave Klockwork

It is source code analytics tool for security and reliability for coders and developers. With the help of these tools developers can boost security and create a more reliable software solution by extending the lifetime of complex software. Biggest of the brands among automotive and mobile devices use this tool to enhance their development quality. It uses resources like Elixir Enterprise, OpenLogic Support and Klockwork overview for enabling this tool with amazing security features.


It offer capabilities like predictive analysis, dynamic analysis, Open Source Support, Open Source Auditing and code refactoring. With this tool, developers can ensure security during the development lifecycle resulting in better code quality and heightened security.


FlawFinder

FlawFinder is a tool that examines C/C++source code and reports vulnerabilities. The weakness levels are also reported based on the level of weakness. The tool enables functions that uses built-in database of the scripting language to tell buffer overflow problems, format string issues, race condition and random number acquisition. So before you release the software for public use, this tool can inform you about what needs to be fixed. More than a tool, it is static analyzer that uses algorithm to detect vulnerabilities.

Parasoft Development Testing Platform It is a (DTP) Development Testing Platform enabling developers to conduct testing during the development lifecycle. It performs static analytics leveraging policies and applying software quality practice across teams and throughout the SDLC. It allows left delivering of platforms automated defect prevention and the uniform measurement of risk.


Developers can conduct Unit Testing, Code Coverage Analysis, Peer Review and Development Testing allowing developers to improve their code quality and create cleaner code.


If you are a developer than you must consider using these tools for ensure the security of your developed solutions. Today, due to these resources, testing and figuring vulnerabilities has become very easy. Use these tools and become Software Development Specialist by developing good code quality and system solutions and please your clients. Keep tuned for more.
