Clean Code benefits: the software qualities

On this page

Clean Code leads to software that is secure, reliable, and maintainable. These three aspects - security, reliability, and maintainability - are called software qualities in the Sonar Solution, and they contribute to the long-term value of your software.


Security is the protection of your software from unauthorized access, use, or destruction. 


Reliability is a measure of how your software is capable of maintaining its level of performance under stated conditions for a stated period of time.


Maintainability refers to the ease with which you can repair, improve and understand software code.
