The Advantages

No need to guess behavior

  • Since the static tools look directly into source code, they don't need to do any guesswork for functionality.

Full access to all possible scenarios

  • Static tools explore all the logical flows and all scenarios are visited.

Scales well

  • These tools can be used for an application of few hundred lines of code, and also application with millions of lines of code.

Developer friendly

  • Developers can integrate static analysis tools in the IDE, and it becomes part of the coding and unit testing cycle. No separate environment is required.

Uncovers all instances of a vulnerability

  • If a static analysis tool uncovers a particular vulnerability then it will find out all the instances of that particular vulnerability.
