New Solar appScreener 3.7 Supports Integrated Development Environments

Solar Security LLC has unveiled an upgrade of its app code analyzer, Solar appScreener 3.7, with its key new feature being the support of integrated development environments (IDE) IntelliJ IDEA by JetBrains and Microsoft Visual Studio to fix vulnerabilities at earlier software development stages.

IntelliJ IDEA by JetBrains is a development environment that supports various programming languages, including Java, JavaScript, and Python. Microsoft Visual Studio is a software development tool used to create web apps, websites, mobile apps, and Windows programs. Thanks to IDE support capability, the new analyzer integrates static application security testing (SAST) into the development process as early as the code building stage.

In addition to earlier vulnerability detection, Solar appScreener 3.7 starts scanning faster. User Accounts now have a Settings subsection for creating scan settings templates so that users can define their own presets and use them to quickly configure projects.

“Our upgraded product not only supports more programming languages than any other similar solution available in the market and features expanded integration capabilities, but also provides improved functionality. Keeping in mind our customers’ needs, we strive to make Solar appScreener the most user-friendly code scanner,” said Daniil Chernov, Head of Solar appScreener Practice at Solar Security LLC.

This is why Solar appScreener 3.7 offers expanded and significantly improved user interface functionality. For example, the About page now has an admin guide allowing users to download all instructions for installing, updating and configuring the system from the interface, with no need to request them from the vendor.

The Detailed Results section now loads faster, making it more convenient to work with a large number of vulnerabilities. In the section "Forms for creating/editing project groups, rule sets, patterns", the less intuitive "... for all users" checkboxes were replaced with "Private ..." and "Public ..." radio buttons to make any project elements visible to either all users or certain users only.

Moreover, to detect vulnerabilities more effectively, the developers supplemented vulnerability descriptions and vulnerability search rules for supported programming languages.
