- voke reports that Coverity is in the early stages of transforming the market, acting as a beacon to guide and define testing for the future

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Coverity, Inc., the software integrity leader, announced today that it has been rated as a Transformational company in the voke, inc. Market Mover Array™ Report for Testing Platforms. Coverity's rating is recognition of the impact that Coverity's software integrity strategy is making in shaping the future of the testing market, from the perspective of testing innovation and technology and marketing.

The voke report defines Transformational vendors as those that are changing the tone and direction of the market. These vendors may include newer entrants to the market that have either innovative technology or the ability to take a long view of the market and articulate it. These vendors are typically challenging the pivotal vendors to innovate either in terms of technology or marketing acumen.

The report states, "In six years, Coverity has moved from being a tool provider of static analysis for extremely mature engineering organizations to a company focused on software integrity, solving the most egregious software problems before they are encountered by providing visibility into the quality, safety, and security of the software that operates devices, systems, and business processes."

Coverity earns high marks in the voke testing market report for its innovation and technology vision due to the strength of its flagship offering, Coverity Static Analysis, as well as its movement to solution provider via Coverity Integrity Center, an integrated suite of software analysis products. With recent market moves by Coverity, including the partnership and integration announcement with Armorize, a leader in security analysis, Coverity will provide a single solution for development teams to automate software testing for both quality and security problems, and a unified view to help organizations understand the risk and business impact of software defects.

Specifically, the voke report states that, "Coverity targets organizations with the need for software integrity. Coverity is now able to speak directly with the line of business to show how software integrity aligns with the final business outcome of profitability, customer satisfaction, time-to-market, and brand integrity. Coverity provides visibility into the results, risks, and outcomes of one of the most expensive and proprietary parts of the business: the research and development process and the source code created."

Coverity also earns the top spot for marketing ability among the 13 testing vendors highlighted in the report due to its focus on amplifying the importance of software to the business.

"Coverity is changing the way software is perceived and what the tolerance for a software failure should be," states Theresa Lanowitz, founder of voke, inc. "Coverity is the first company that we have seen in recent years who has successfully changed the conversation from technical to business focused, elevating the importance and business necessity of delivering quality, safe, and secure software. This is a critical step to link software testing with overall business health, and Coverity is leading with the message that will ultimately transform the entire testing market."

"Coverity is very pleased to be recognized among so many prestigious brands and software companies," said Seth Hallem, CEO of Coverity. "This report cements Coverity's leadership and validates software integrity as one of the most important strategic agendas in business."
