Fortify Software Security Center (SSC) & Fortify Static Code Analyzer (SCA) 19.2.0 Product Announcement 

Fortify SSC and SCA 19.2.0 release emphasizes the evolving needs to enhance existing languages, improve integration/automation capabilities and support new constructs and frameworks. We continue to build on our vision to continue our market leadership by providing key enterprise enhancements that focus on improvements in speed, automation and usability.

Fortify Static Code Analyzer (SCA) 19.2.0 Key Highlights

    • React Support: Support for React 16.5 JavaScript Library has been added. 
    • Modular Analysis: Tech preview of modular analysis for Java only has been added. Modular analysis allows you to pre-scan libraries and sub-libraries. You can then include these pre-scanned libraries when you scan the core project. Fortify Static Code Analyzer can follow dataflow through the libraries without including the source code of the libraries in the core application scan or requiring rules for these libraries. This results in a high quality scan without having to scan the dependencies each time you scan the core application.

    • Performance improvements.
