Synopsys Inc. has acquired a privately held Australian-based software company that offers static source code analysis tools for minimising security vulnerabilities, improving code quality, and ensuring compliance with industry coding standards. The acquisition of Goanna Software provides Synopsys' Software Integrity Group with additional talent, technology and products that expand the company's presence in the emerging software quality and security market, support its vision of bringing a rigorous software sign-off process to software development, as well as increase its presence in Australia and the broader APAC region, the company indicated.

Goanna Software's highly extensible technology will be used to augment Synopsys' Coverity product, the static code analysis solution at the core of its Software Integrity Platform. With minimal integration effort, Goanna Software's technology will accelerate improvements to Coverity's analysis capabilities and expand its out-of-the-box security and quality coverage. Goanna Software's technology will also accelerate Synopsys' ongoing efforts to provide broader coverage of industry-specific coding standards and guidelines, including a robust MISRA compliance solution for the automotive industry. Additionally, Synopsys will leverage Goanna Software's technology to improve the Coverity software development kit (SDK) to enable customers to more easily develop dedicated static analysis rules and checkers for their specific use cases.

The terms of the deal, which is not material to Synopsys financials, have not been disclosed.

Through its Software Integrity Platform, Synopsys claims to provide advanced solutions for improving the quality and security of software. This comprehensive platform of automated analysis and testing technologies integrates seamlessly into the software development process and enables organisations to detect and remediate quality defects, security vulnerabilities and compliance issues early in the software development lifecycle, as well as gain security assurance and visibility with their software supply chain.
