Overall, the ability to find vulnerabilities in the code is better than the tool that we were using before.Our static operation security has been able to identify more security issues since implementing this solution.The main benefit to using this solution is that we find vulnerabilities in our software before the development cycle is complete.The most valuable features of Checkmarx are the Best Fix Location and the Payments option because you can save a lot of time trying to mitigate the configuration.

Checkmarx being Windows only is a hindrance. Another problem is: why can't I choose PostgreSQL?It would be really helpful if the level of confidence was included, with respect to identified issues.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.It is an expensive solution.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.
