GrammaTech, a provider of software assurance tools and cybersecurity solutions, announced the availability of CodeSonar 5.2. The features in this latest version of CodeSonar provide software development organizations use of a single tool to perform Static Application Security Testing (SAST) to further increase code security, quality, and safety covering both embedded and enterprise applications.

CodeSonar supports AUTOSAR C++14, the latest C++ coding guidelines from AUTOSAR. While also supporting MISRA compliance, the addition of AUTOSAR support now sets a merging of standards with MISRA and AUTOSAR for CodeSonar.

The release also includes improved compiler support and open standards,  with support for new versions of the IAR, GNU C, and CLANG compilers. Updates to C, C++-17, and C++-20 standards have also been incorporated, providing customers with the confidence that CodeSonar support spans from old to new language features. GrammaTech continues its work on open standards including contributing to and supporting SARIF version 2.1. This support also means that CodeSonar can work with the latest versions of IDEs such Microsoft VS Code.

CodeSonar continues its integration with JuliaSoft by supporting the latest release of the Julia engine, which provides high recall, high precision detection of security vulnerabilities in Java and C#.
