Synopsys, Inc. announced the general availability of its Code Sight Standard Edition solution for IntelliJ. Code Sight Standard Edition, which was introduced earlier this year for Visual Studio Code, is a standalone version of the Code Sight plugin for integrated development environments (IDEs) that enables developers to quickly find and fix security defects in source code, open source dependencies, infrastructure-as-code files, and more before they commit their code.
Adding support for IntelliJ significantly expands the addressable market for the Code Sight Standard Edition solution. According to the 2022 Stack Overflow developer survey, IntelliJ is one of the most popular IDEs, with 28% of respondents indicating they either use or are planning to use it within the next year.1 Code Sight Standard Edition for IntelliJ currently supports both IntelliJ IDEA and WebStorm. Support for additional IDEs in the IntelliJ family is planned in future releases.
Code Sight Standard Edition, which works independently of centralized security testing tools like Coverity SAST and Black Duck SCA, combines Synopsys’ innovative Rapid Scan Static and Rapid Scan SCA technologies with a seamless user experience that enables developers to test their code in real-time as they write it—without leaving their IDE or running other tools. By enabling developers to fix security defects as they are coding, it prevents costly rework caused by issues discovered later in the software development lifecycle (SDLC).
Code Sight Standard Edition is available for free for a 30-day trial period. Developers can download and install Code Sight directly from the supported IDE marketplaces and start analyzing their code in less than five minutes. Download Code Sight for IntelliJ (New).
