Static Code Analysis is the technique of automatically analyzing the application’s source and binary code to find security vulnerabilities.

Two categories exist in this realm:
Binary – or byte- code analysis (BCA) analyzes the binary/ byte code that is created by the compiler.
Source code analysis (SCA) analyzes the actual source code of the program without the requirement of retrieving all code for a compilation.

Both offerings promise to deliver security and the requirement of incorporating security into the software development lifecycle (SDLC). Faced with the BCA vs SCA dilemma, which should you choose?
