This acquisition reinforces our journey of pioneering in the field of static analysis and honours the work of our passionate team in Bochum. What started out 10 years ago as an open source project evolved into a state-of-the-art security solution that stands out from traditional SAST products. We feel humbled that today RIPS is used by large organizations world-wide to secure their PHP, Java and JavaScript applications.

Our vision and commitment of building best-in-class static analysis products continues and is shared by SonarSource. SonarSource is a Swiss company founded in 2008, and the undisputed leader in the code quality market. Its developer-first products are trusted by more than 200,000 organizations globally and are the de-facto standard for development teams. With an amazing culture and brilliant minds, SonarSource is the perfect fit to unite forces with and to disrupt the SAST market together.

By joining static analysis knowledge and integrating RIPS into SonarSource world-class products, we are excited to become an important part of a new technology that will help all companies and the global developer community to deliver more secure applications. Together, our teams will build the most accurate and powerful code security analyzer of the market, covering the programming languages and technologies that are used globally to build software.

We are thrilled about this next phase and are extremely thankful for your continued support throughout the past years. For more information on this acquisition, we invite you to read this blog post from Olivier, co-founder and CEO of SonarSource.
