PVS-Studio detects various errors – typos, dead code, and potential vulnerabilities (Static Application Security Testing, SAST).
The analyzer matches warnings to the Common Weakness Enumeration, SEI CERT Coding Standards, and supports the MISRA standard.

Over the years, we have built a team of proven code analysis experts. Clients get support directly from our analyzer developers.
We publish bug reviews of open-source projects to demonstrate the analyzer's abilities. It’s easy to download and try the analyzer on your project. All this helps us get real feedback from users and offer them what they need.
To take a quick peek at the analyzer, use the compilation monitoring system. It is designed for Windows and Linux and does not require you to integrate PVS-Studio into a project.
We have developed more than 600 diagnostic rules and add new ones every month.
Many apps are created for several platforms to meet the current market's demand. Our cross-platform analyzer provides such clients with full code coverage.
The analyzer reports are available in Html, Xml, Csv, Txt, Json, CompileError, TaskList, TeamCity formats. The report generator itself is posted on GitHub for custom modifications.
You can choose one of the three easy approaches: run the analyzer from the command line, integrate it into a build script or CI.
To enhance interaction with the analyzer, we provide plugins for Visual Studio, IntelliJ IDEA, Rider, SonarQube, Jenkins, and other similar products.
Some clients are uncertain about introducing an analyzer into their development process because of the large code base. PVS-Studio accommodates these clients by introducing Legacy code checking mode. You can install PVS-Studio, hide warnings for old (Legacy) code until later, and use the analyzer to check new code.
Static analysis implies you’ll get false warnings. In addition to contacting our support, users have many ways to deal with false positives. This makes the work with the analyzer very convenient.
