The main benefit to using this solution is that we find vulnerabilities in our software before the development cycle is complete.

Checkmarx being Windows only is a hindrance. Another problem is: why can't I choose PostgreSQL?

The reports are good, but they still need to be improved considering what the UI offers.

With Checkmarx, normally you need to use one tool for quality and you need to use another tool for security. I understand that Checkmarx is not in the parity space because it's totally different, but they could include some free features or recommendations too.

I think the CxAudit tool has room for improvement. At the beginning you can choose a scan of a project, but in any event the project must be scanned again (wasting time).
Updating and debugging of queries is not very convenient.

It would be really helpful if the level of confidence was included, with respect to identified issues.

It provides us with quite a handful of false positive issues. If Checkmarx could reduce this number, it would be a great tool to use.
