    security testing - recommendations?

    we need recommendations on a good, reliable, high end security testing tool, which allows the programmer to continuously develop while it runs. we need such one that scans on server rather than the developer's workstation, and will not cause any slowdown while scans are running.
    (I'M NOT THE DEVELOPER)
    any recommendations?

    Can you be a little more specific? do you want it to run while coding?

    Yes..
    We work simultaneously so I need others to be able to work while it scans.. I prefer somthing that can work on the server rather then each workstation seperatly

    Ok.. Well as Claire said there are many tools that can do that.. Did you check her link yet?
    I've used few tools.. some where better then others, it depends on what exactly you need... in what language are you coding?

    Mostly Java and C++ (Again I'm not the developer so I'm not 100% sure)..
    There is also the gui and some other things that we use other language for.. The best thing is to find a tool that can work with few languages.. thats what im looking for... If i can't find it I'll have to settle for few different tools but I need to make sure that they won't interrupt each other

    Im currently using checkmarx and I'm pretty happy with it.. Hadn't tried it on anything other then Java, but I think its compatible with C++ aswell. Anyways It runs in the background and I don't really "feel" it.. which is nice
