Rogue Wave Software announced today that it has acquired Klocwork Inc., a global leader in software development tools for creating more secure, reliable code. Klocwork offers tools that analyze source code on-the-fly, simplify peer code reviews, and extend the life of complex software. The addition of the Klocwork tools to TotalView and the OLEX open source scanning solution complements and expands the Rogue Wave solutions for developers, enabling them to write better – more secure – code, faster.
“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’s innovative team and technologies are an incredible addition to the Rogue Wave family.”
Klocwork Insight is a source code analysis tool that seamlessly integrates into a developer’s personal workflow on their desktop. It alerts developers to potential security vulnerabilities or reliability issues in real-time, as they are typing. Combined with Klocwork Cahoots, a simple yet powerful code review platform, developers have solutions to assist with application security, source code analysis, code review, reporting and metrics, code refactoring and code architecture.
Klocwork’s customers will continue to receive the same outstanding service and support, and benefit from the tremendous depth of Rogue Wave’s products and resources. “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 applications, is the perfect fit for Klocwork.”
