It's reduced operational costs as we minimized security incidents and ensured all vulnerabilities are remediated during the development lifecycle.


What is most valuable?

It's saved us a lot of time as we focus primarily on security consultancy work rather than tool operational work.

Finally, it's reduced operational costs as we minimized security incidents and ensured all vulnerabilities are remediated during the development lifecycle.

How has it helped my organization?

The results it provides are more than 95% accurate, helping us to focus on the right things first.

Our new software procurement process benefited as well as we use this as a central control to provide security assurance and evaluate the quality of our deliverables.

Its ease-of-use has influenced developer behavior and enabled them to follow security principles.

What needs improvement?

It would be useful if they could integrate secure design reviews, security user stories in Fortify on Demand Portal, and also look for possible options to get just one view of risks for given services (Covering Application, Infrastructure, Pen. Test, etc.).

For how long have I used the solution?

I’ve used it since 2010.

Customer Service:

Customer service is excellent.

Technical Support:

The technical support is very good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We've used various other tools, including the Fortify on-premise solution. We chose Fortify on Demand as it is cost effective, scalable, easy to deploy, and helps us to manage our vulnerabilities centrally.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was very easy and straightforward. We were able to roll out this service to all our business units.

What about the implementation team?

We performed the installation in-house.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There is no setup cost as it is an on-demand solution. However, if there is any firewall change required for an internal application, we would need to raise that from our end.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We considered SonarQube, MSFox, and CodeInspect.

What other advice do I have?

Fully utilize this product and its feature as it covers almost everything required for software security assurance.
