Veracode Review

We use scan results for training to increase sensitivity to security issues during development

What is our primary use case?

Static code scan.

How has it helped my organization?

We have used the results of scans to train our people and make them more sensitive to security issues during development, although we haven't done any specific integration of Veracode into our software development cycle. Engineers are better trained, so we hope to see increased compliance with our security guidelines.

We do incorporate the suggested course of action from the Veracode report (AppSec best practices and guidance) in our best practices.

Also, our customers benefit from the fact that the application is more secure.

What is most valuable?

We use the results of the scan to identify vulnerabilities in the product.

What needs improvement?

Calypso (our application) is large and the results take up to two months. Further, we also have to package Calypso in a special manner to meet size guidelines.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Because our application is large, it takes a long time to upload and scan.

How are customer service and technical support?

Based on limited usage, we are satisfied.

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

We did not have a previous solution. We picked this product because our partner (SAP) uses it.

How was the initial setup?


What was our ROI?

There are no directly measurable cost savings. We see security improvement as a key part of our product development.

What other advice do I have?

When asked, we let our customers and partners know that we use Veracode and that we are happy with it.
