Coverity is a 300 person pre-IPO company that is growing rapidly. With record growth in 2012, we are part of the Deloitte Fast 500, the San Francisco Fast 100, a 2012 CODiE award winner and 2013 CODie Finalist for Best Security Application. Our experienced leadership team has "been there, done that" in enterprise software.
Our products find bugs and security vulnerabilities in source code before they can crash software in the key systems of such important things as pacemakers, cars, and cell phones -- and before they can be hacked by malicious attackers. We are considered to be the leader in the embedded software testing space -- and we are rapidly expanding into other industries and markets. Among our 1,100 customers are:
7 of the 10 top global brands
All 10 top aerospace and defense companies
All 10 top consumer electronics companies
8 of the 10 top telecommunications companies
7 of the 10 top software companies
You name a product in your daily life, and it is likely that we made it better by improving the software. We are proud that the software of the Mars Rover Curiosity is "Coverity-clean" and our products contributed to the success of the large Hadron Collider. In addition, Coverity provides free code analysis to open source projects through our SCAN initiative and most top universities use us as part of their Computer Science curriculum to demonstrate software testing at its best.
