Micro Focus Fortify CloudScan

Fortify CloudScan now ships with a utility to package source code, dependencies, and Fortify Static Code Analyzer translation instructions. The packaging utility allows you to centralize your Fortify infrastructure and create a consistent approach across languages.

  • You no longer have to install and run Fortify Static Code Analyzer on the build server for the following languages: Java, JavaScript, Ruby, Python, and PHP.
  • The packaging utility packages everything necessary, including dependencies, and sends the package directly to the CloudScan CLI. The CloudScan CLI then sends it on to the sensors, which perform both translation and scanning phases of the analysis.
  • The packaging utility intelligently sets what were previously manual translation options. Simply provide the location of the build file (build.gradle / pom.xml). No other configuration options are required for build integration.
  • This new Fortify CloudScan utility supports auto packaging using the Gradle or Maven build tools.
