SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Coverity, Inc., the leader in development testing, today announced that Coverity® Security Advisor has been selected by SC Magazine as a finalist in the "Innovation" category for the SC Awards Europe 2013.

Coverity Security Advisor, released in October 2012, builds on Coverity's core strength in static analysis technology. The solution empowers development teams to find and fix critical security defects that can lead to the most commonly exploited vulnerabilities, including SQL injection and cross-site scripting. Coverity Security Advisor includes patent-pending innovation for defect remediation, providing precise and specific guidance to developers so they can easily understand how to fix security defects correctly and efficiently.

"Although code-level defects are an increasingly common attack vector, we often see that developers are left out of the security equation," said Jennifer Johnson, Vice President of Marketing at Coverity. "Providing developers with technology they can use to effectively fix security issues while writing code was a natural extension of our roots in development and software quality. This nomination recognizes not only our innovation, but also the importance of development testing as a means to ensure software security and reduce business risks."

Coverity Security Advisor is a product within the Coverity Development Testing Platform which enables software development organizations to unify quality and security testing with an integrated, developer-ready solution.

Winners of the SC Awards Europe will be announced on Tuesday, April 23, at the Hilton Park Lane Hotel in London. More information about the awards can be found here.
