SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 12, 2012

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Coverity, the development testing
leader, today announced that Coverity^® Quality Advisor, Coverity^® Security
Advisor and Coverity^® Test Advisor--three core products within the Coverity
Development Testing Platform--have been validated Ready for IBM Rational,
including support for IBM^® Rational^® Team Concert (RTC). As part of Ready
for IBM Rational software validation, IBM has verified that Coverity meets the
Ready for Rational software requirements for integration between the Coverity
Development Testing Platform and the IBM Rational Software Delivery Platform.

Through this integration, Coverity-identified quality and security issues are
surfaced within RTC, providing a new level of visibility into code quality and
security early in development, as the code is written, and a unified workflow
for a new level of collaboration between Development and QA. By integrating
the industry's most accurate and widely adopted development testing platform
into IBM's industry-standard platform for collaborative change management and
application lifecycle management (ALM), organizations can significantly reduce
the risk of application quality and security issues in production without
negatively impacting agility or cost.

"Development testing is an integral part of the software development lifecycle
to help reduce the time, cost and risk associated with software issues," said
Anthony Bettencourt, Chief Executive Officer at Coverity. "We see the
emergence of a new market where uncovering software quality and security
issues with a single, integrated platform is becoming a mission-critical need
of all enterprises. Collaborating with IBM will bring our joint customers
shared visibility into software issues early in the process and provide a new
way to collaborate across Development, QA and Security to meet increasing
business demands for resilient and fast software delivery."
