Largest global manufacturer of antenna systems and electronic components selects Insight® for desktop SCA
BURLINGTON, MA– December 16, 2013 – Klocwork® Inc., a global leader in software development tools for creating secure code, today announced that Kathrein, the oldest and largest automotive antenna manufacturer in the world, has selected Insight® desktop Static Code Analysis (SCA) for use in its automotive division.
Kathrein has some 80 years of experience in automotive antenna systems. In addition, they continue to play a leadership role in the development of new technologies for in-car communications and entertainment systems.
As the rapid development of such new systems continues, Kathrein recognized the need to balance security and reliability with cutting edge technology. They wanted a tool that would enable their software development teams to analyze their source code, help them find and fix security vulnerabilities and other defects, and ensure they remained compliant with the most current industry standards, in the most efficient way possible.
Insight® is rapidly becoming that tool of choice for software developers in the automotive market. With advanced code analysis, including deep data flow and structural analysis, Insight works within the developer’s IDE, as they write their code. It supports MISRA-C and MISRA-C++ coding standards, the latest security vulnerability detection, and has received both ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 certifications. It is the only SCA product to deliver such enhanced control and productivity right to the developer desktop.
“Application security and functional safety requirements in the automotive world continue to grow as the degree of automation in vehicles increases,” said Gwyn Fisher, Klocwork Chief Technology Officer. “This applies to almost all components of the modern automobile. More intelligent vehicles mean more software in those vehicles. The need to protect that software from malicious attacks or standards violations or failures of any type grows proportionally. In today’s world, we all rely on embedded code. Now developers can rely on desktop SCA to help them write applications that are secure and reliable and will stand the test of time,” he continued.
