DefenseCode today announces support for two additional programming languages, Go and ABAP. with its Static Application Security Testing (SAST) solution ThunderScan 2.1.0, designed to highlight security vulnerabilities in source code against published standards including PCI-DSS, CWE/SANS Top 25, OWASP Top 10, along with DefenseCode’s own experience of security vulnerabilities analysis.

With the new additions of Go and ABAP the native language parsing capability of our SAST solution ThunderScan is now grown to support for security analysis of 27 programming languages. With our ongoing approach of native language support and analysis to ensure that false positives/negatives are minimized ensuring that the results are accurate and actionable.

This comes on the back of significantly larger user base requesting in-depth vulnerability analysis for Go for upcoming projects in 2020 and beyond. Go is widely considered as an innovation in conservative programming languages, constantly ranking as top 5 languages skills ‘most in demand’. The need for supporting ABAP, has been based on growing requirements shared with DefenseCode to create a state-of-the-art parser, given that many business-critical systems are based on SAP’s ABAP, having robust support is a necessity.

ThunderScan release 2.1.0 is available from April 20, 2020.
