Techopedia explains Code Analyzer

A code analyzer primarily automates most of the software code analysis process within a software testing life cycle. It scans and analyzes static code. Typically, a code analyzer is designed to review source code for known errors, programming context and overall program structure. It enables an understanding of the code behavior, program logic and relationships between components of the program.

The analysis is used by software testers, quality assurance staff and developers to remove errors and improve the overall code structure. It is also used as means to identify security vulnerabilities within a program.
