Veracode: Linux
Manager, Information Technology at Broadcom Corporation

When it comes to the speed of the pipeline scan, one of the things we have found with Veracode is that it's very fast with Java-based applications but a bit slow with C/C++ based applications. So we have implemented the pipeline scan only for Java-based applications not for the C/C++ applications.

For C++ based languages, or languages where there is a platform dependency—for example, if I write C language code it is dependent on whether I'm executing that on Windows, or on Linux, or another platform—and with some of these platforms-specific languages, Veracode makes something called debug symbols that are introduced into the code. That gets cumbersome. They could improve that or possibly automate. If Veracode could quickly analyze the code and make file-line flags, that would be great. It is easy to do for Java, Python, and Pearl, but not so easy for C++. So when it comes to the debug symbols, guidance or automation could be improved.

Also, scan completion, as well scanning progress, is not reported accurately. Sometimes the scan says it will complete in two to three hours but it will take four or five hours. That is one of the areas where they can give a more accurate estimate.

Acunetix by Invicti: Linux
Senior Test Engineer II at a financial services firm with 201-500 employees

I think it needs to expand to other operating systems because most organizations use a Linux- based environment, which it currently doesn't support. I think that's a big problem.

Compliance Manager at a tech services company with 201-500 employees

The company had been using InMap and was using manual vulnerability assessment practices, using Kali Linux and some open source applications. But once I joined the company, we changed to a different level because we are an ISO 27000 certified company as well as being PCI DSS application certified with a PCI DSS certified data center. We host payment applications on behalf of Sri Lankan and Malaysian banks. Because of that we introduced these automation systems. We use Acunetix and we use PortSwigger and some other tools.

We used Nessus and we have experience with QualysGuard as well, but Acunetix gives us code-level identification of vulnerabilities and a good understanding of the code-level vulnerability fixes. It is much more helpful for us because we can understand how to fix the vulnerabilities at the code level. The vulnerability identification is much more powerful in Acunetix than in any other tool.

Security Engineer at Secure Network

It was very easy to set up Acunetix, as they give you an installer that does everything. You just need to click: "Install".

It takes a maximum of 10 minutes to deploy, if you want to read everything.

We did other configurations to enable the IP address to talk to all the networks.

We also used Acunetix on a Linux server. The deployment process was the same as Windows. It was just another installer, but for Linux.

Micro Focus Fortify on Demand: Linux
Executive Manager at PepsiCo

Micro Focus Fortify on Demand cannot be run from a Linux Agent. When we are coding the endpoint it will not work, we have to use Windows Agent. This is something they could improve.

Currently, when we are running a security scan or Azure DevOps pipeline Micro Focus Fortify on Demand will give an overall status. People have to click on the link to read the in-depth results. If there could be some output of the report that can be passed in the pipeline and based on that we can control the next step of the pipeline. For example, if Micro Focus Fortify on Demand is saying the report is critical, do not go any further. If we can have that critical variable as a pipeline output that can be used later it would be really helpful.

SonarQube: Linux
Security consultant at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees

The initial setup was simple for me. It was very straightforward and to the point. The documentation was also very much to the point and perfectly explained.

There are open source solutions for the Linux environment that let you automatically deploys everything in the new environment by using a specific file, but SonarQube doesn't have that file. That would be a plus point.

Chief Solutions Officer at CleverIT B.V.

I am now working in a consultancy company and I work with different clients in different industries. For this reason I implement, for example, a delivery pipeline with the process whereby we need to validate the quality gate of the quality code. Meaning, the developer creates the unit testing and the code coverage, but grants the code coverage for a specific person. In other cases, we used to see what the technical depth was to see if if there are any bugs in the applications - the web application, mobile application and different languages, like, C-Sharp, JavaScript or Java, et cetera.

We deploy SonarQube on-premise on a Linux server and our pipelines were created with GitLab and Azure DevOps. Meaning that Azure DevOps and GitLab are the tools that do the build and release process.

We use Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform a little.

We haven't used it with the microservices or containers to check the scalability. We have used it on a Windows Server or Linux Server.

Manager, Software Development Engineering at a computer software company with 51-200 employees

I looked at Checkmarx but it wasn't as straightforward as SonarQube because it's only supporting Linux and maybe Windows, but I wasn't able to find any local scanning support for Mac computers, and that was an issue. I'd like to learn more about Checkmarx.

Sonatype Nexus Firewall: Linux
Senior Cyber Security Architect and Engineer at a computer software company with 10,001+ employees

For people who don't have a lot of Linux knowledge—including myself, I'm purely a Windows guy—it can be very tricky. It did take us a long time to stand up the environment.

The fact they don't have professional services to implement it for you is a big gap. I have a good relationship with everyone on the Sonatype team. I sent them an email and they made time to jump on a call and help us build it. That is what is expected from a large, enterprise-level company. We have Azure Sentinel and F5 and these companies have professional services. They help you from end-to-end, starting with the implementation. Sonatype does not have been at the moment. It does become challenging when you're not a Linux guy and you need to learn and implement it and to make sure that you're deploying it securely.

To be fully ready, it took us two months. I was involved, along with one of my engineers, and we had the help from Sonatype team.

In terms of an implementation strategy, we had the whole high-level architecture set up, which was not very hard. But to engineer it and do it was a little challenging for me, but it could be different for people who have Linux knowledge.

There are about 200 people using it across our organization. Most of them are developers and data scientists. I take care of the day-to-day maintenance. The upgrades are easy, the directions are easy. If you do need help, you can reach out to the support.

Sonatype Nexus Lifecycle: Linux
IT Security Manager at a insurance company with 5,001-10,000 employees

The central IT service organization in our firm manages all our Linux setups and stuff like that. He primarily repackages the installer into an RPM for our Linux service. Usually, the upgrade is just totally painless and right off the books.

Senior Architect at a insurance company with 1,001-5,000 employees

They have good documentation about how to configure things and get it set up, and it's easy to find what you're looking for, generally speaking. I found the setup to be pretty straightforward. I had to spearhead that effort, solo, and get it socialized out to all the teams. Most people seemed to be able to configure it pretty well without a lot of hand-holding. The rollout went really well.

We run it on our own Windows box. It's a little tricky to get it to run as a Windows service, but they have instructions for it and we finally figured out how to get that working. I think they intend for it to be run on Linux, but it's Java, so it runs on either. It's running fine on Windows.

I just used the online documentation and did it all myself. It took about three months to roll it out.

Engineering Tools and Platform Manager at BT - British Telecom

One area of improvement, about which I have spoken to the Sonatype architect a while ago, is related to the installation. We still have an installation on Linux machines. The installation should move to EKS or Kubernetes so that we can do rollover updates, and we don't have to take the service down. My primary focus is to have at least triple line availability of my tools, which gives me a very small window to update my tools, including IQ. Not having them on Kubernetes means that every time we are performing an upgrade, there is downtime. It impacts the 0.1% allocated downtime that we are allowed to have, which becomes a challenge. So, if there is Kubernetes installation, it would be much easier. That's one thing that definitely needs to be improved.

Some of our engineers came from outside of BT, and there are some features that they are used to from rival products, but they are currently not there in Sonatype IQ. For example, Snyk has a feature to stop a particular check-in from happening at the merge stage in case something is different or wrong. This feature is still in the development phase in IQ. Such a feature would be handy in IQ.

Another area where Nexus can severely improve is the licensing model. I am not worried about the licensing cost, but the way they calculate the number of licenses being used needs to be improved. They have been quite ambiguous in terms of how they calculate who is using Nexus or IQ, and this ambiguity has not been good. At times, we think we have a certain number of customers, but Sonatype says that it is not true, and we have some other number. They haven't been able to explain very well how they calculate that number, which has been a challenge for us.
