Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. announced its position as a leading vendor in GigaOm’s inaugural Radar for Cloud Network Security.
Azul announced Code Inventory, a new feature of Azul Vulnerability Detection that provides developers and DevOps teams a precise catalog of the source code actually used in production by Java applications, making it easy to accurately identify dead and unused code for removal.
Code Inventory reduces the time and burden of maintaining and testing code that is not being used, significantly improving developer productivity and ultimately saving money.
Available now, Code Inventory collects information in production with no performance penalty, requires no changes to Java applications and is included at no additional charge for Azul Vulnerability Detection customers.
“Application developers want to remove dead and unused code to make maintenance easier but are terrified to remove anything for fear of breaking the application,” said Martin Van Ryswyk, chief product officer at Azul. “With Code Inventory, developers now have a sophisticated tool to help pinpoint areas for cleanup. Code Inventory is the only solution that collects highly granular information about the code run by the JVM in production with no performance overhead, creating a new, highly accurate way to find dead code for removal.”
Code Inventory is a feature of Azul Vulnerability Detection, an agentless cloud service that continuously detects known security vulnerabilities in Java applications and infrastructure in production. Code Inventory requires no changes to the application or additional monitoring software.
