What is Xcalscan?
1.0 What is Xcalscan?
latest update: 2021-06-17
Xcalscan is a next generation vulnerability scanning tool for Static Application Security Testing (SAST). It identifies vulnerabilities in source code early in the development process. It goes beyond the traditional approach of pattern analysis and analyses the source code at the earlier stage of the compiler process. With more in-depth analysis of the intermediate representation of the source code, Xcalscan endeavours to provide more accurate and efficient reporting.
Xcalscan has four main benefits:
- Ensure that you prepare high quality source code
- Ensure that you adhere to software compliance standards
- Ensure that the number of vulnerabilities in the source code is reduced
- Together with proper integration into the development process it can improve efficiency and enhance productivity
Xcalscan currently supports the analysis of projects developed in C/C++ and Java.
This version of userguide is for Release 2.0 of Xcalscan.
