Coverity Review

Good security analysis features but it should support more languages and the user interface is not user-friendly

What is our primary use case?

We use the on-premise deployment model of this solution. Our primary use case of this solution is for auditing. 

What is most valuable?

The security analysis features are the most valuable features of this solution. 

What needs improvement?

The quality of the code needs improvement. They should develop a better code. 

The interface, efficiency, and the performance also need improvement as well as the languages that it offers. It should have more language options.

The user interface is not user-friendly.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for around three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have 30 users licensed for this solution. We use it when we need it. 

How are customer service and technical support?

Their technical support isn't so good. That needs improvement. They don't address the problems I bring up. It's not a priority for them. 

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used an open-source solution before Coverity. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was easy. The solution is complex to use but not complex to deploy. 

What about the implementation team?

We deployed the solution ourselves. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Licensing is on a yearly basis. 

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution depending on the language you're using, Java and C++.

I would rate it a five out of ten. Not a ten because it's not efficient for the language we use.
