Klocwork K7 “Best Source Code Analyzer” for C, C++, and Java
BURLINGTON, Mass. — Jan 9, 2007 — Klocwork Inc., the proven leader of automated software for improving software security and quality, announced today they have won the 2007 InfoWorld Technology of the Year Award in the Application Development category. Selected by InfoWorld Test Center editors and reviewers from more than 230 products tested during 2006, Klocwork’s K7 automated static analysis suite and 40 other hardware and software products represent the best and most innovative in their class.
“Klocwork K7 is a robust and scalable analytical suite for C, C++ and Java, featuring excellent defect discovery and extensive tools for managing the many results. 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.
“Klocwork’s strategy is all about making developers more productive, and the InfoWorld Technology of the Year Award, combined with our strong customer momentum, is great validation of this strategy,” said Mike Laginski, CEO of Klocwork. “By providing the developer insight into their code at the individual level, system level and architectural level, Klocwork is uniquely positioned to facilitate developers focusing on innovation, rather than spending their critical time fixing problematic code.”
Klocwork’s K7 has been widely recognized for its value to the extended development team. K7 outperformed and outscored a competitive offering in a review published by InfoWorld last year, and scored a 9 out of 10 on defect management and overall value.
