Audit workbench

SCA 5.0 is the fifth generation of Fortify’s source code analysis software. It incorporates new functionality in the areas of customisation, collaboration and comprehensiveness.

In order to help its enterprise customers customise their application security rules and deployments, Fortify has integrated rule development and management into Fortify SCA 5.0’s Audit Workbench, giving developers flexibility in generating, editing and sorting through the security rules that govern secure development. It features new Rule-Writing Wizards and API ScanView, an interface for presenting the various APIs used within a project, for creating custom rules; a Rulepack Manager for filtering, sorting and editing rules.

For advanced users, Fortify’s XML editor provides syntax highlighting, code completion, validation and inline error reporting for custom rules. This release is the first to include a series of tracking and auditing tools to help developers work on the same project regardless of location and analysis capabilities have been added or enhanced to improve precision.
