    Application Inspector is a source code analysis tool developed by Positive Technologies. The tool combines dynamic code analysis and static code analysis based on Abstract interpretation.[1]. It enables security specialists and software engineers to detect source code and application configuration flaws, find and verify security vulnerabilities in source code written in Java (including JSP and JSF),C#, VB.Net, ASP.NET, PHP, JavaScript, Objective-C, Swift, C\C++, SQL (PL/SQL. T-SQL. MySQL), HTML5, Python and Go.

    Application Inspector is available in two different versions: Desktop Edition and Enterprise Edition. Desktop Edition was designed for code audit and a single user, while Enterprise Edition is for secure development and multi-user access.


    Application Inspector was released in the end 2014. First product Desktop Edition supported Abstract interpretation and exploit generation to confirm vulnerabilities during SAST analysis for Java, C #, PHP.

    Since 2018 Application Inspector is supporting C\C++ and languages used in mobile applications.

    Since 2018 Application Inspector started featuring in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing[2].

    In 2019 Application Inspector Enterprise Edition was launched. It started supporting integration with CI/CD tools, a role-based access control model, and teamwork capabilities with unlimited number of users[3]

    • It is also featured on the National Institute of Standards and Technology list of Source Code Security Analyzers[5]
