Rogue Wave Software has acquired Klocwork Inc., forming a new source code analysis proposition for developers looking to analyze source code on-the-fly and simplify the peer code review process.
In the pursuit of new "complex software environments", the companies say the addition of the Klocwork tools to Rogue Wave's TotalView is also benefited by the OLEX open source scanning solution complements.
"Rogue Wave has consistently provided market-leading frameworks and tools used by developers to enable software everywhere," said Brian Pierce, CEO of Rogue Wave. "With the addition of Klocwork, we greatly enhance our customers' ability to create secure and reliable code, while expanding our offering from the enterprise to the embedded development market."
Klocwork Insight is a source code analysis tool that integrates into a developer's personal workflow on the desktop. This tool is designed to alert developers to potential security vulnerabilities or reliability issues in real-time, as they are typing.
Combined with the Klocwork Cahoots code review platform, developers here have solutions to assist with application security, source code analysis, code review, reporting and metrics, code refactoring, and code architecture.
"Bringing these great teams and technologies together benefits our customers and advances the Rogue Wave developer toolset," said Mike Laginski, CEO of Klocwork. "Rogue Wave's long history of providing products to improve developers' ability to write secure, reliable enterprise, and embedded applications is the perfect fit for Klocwork."
