We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
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. Using these tools can save you a lot of time.It is a stable product.Most valuable features include: ease of use, dashboard. interface and the ability to report.It shows in-depth code of where actual vulnerabilities are.It gives the proper code flow of vulnerabilities and the number of occurrences.

It's a well-known platform for doing dynamic application scanning.I've found the centralized dashboard the most valuable. For the management, it helps a lot to have abilities at the central level.Technical support has been good.Guided Scan option allows us to easily scan and share reports.

Cons
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.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.

The solution needs better integration with Microsoft's Azure Cloud or an extension of Azure DevOps. In fact, it should better integrate with any cloud provider. Right now, it's quite difficult to integrate with that solution, from the cloud perspective.I'm not sure licensing, but on the pricing, it's a bit costly. It's a bit overpriced. Though it is an enterprise tool, there are other tools also with similar functionalities.The initial setup was complex.One thing I would like to see them introduce is a cloud-based platform.We have often encountered scanning errors.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We have a subscription license that is on a yearly basis, and it's a pretty competitive solution.It is an expensive solution.Be cautious of the one-year subscription date. Once it expires, your price will go up.We got a special offer for a 30% reduction for three years, after our first year. I think for a real source-code scanning tool, you have to add a lot of money for Open Source Analysis, and AppSec Coach (160 Euro per user per year).Before implementing the product I would evaluate if it is really necessary to scan so many different languages and frameworks. If not, I think there must be a cheaper solution for scanning Java-only applications (which are 90% of our applications).

It’s a fair price for the solution.

Whitepaper: I, II

Most enterprises rely heavily on the Web to conduct their normal operations, whether providing services, a mechanism for retail sales, or a host of other functions. Yet, most still struggle with efficiently managing their application security risks. For one thing, they need solutions of scale that can be used to manage thousands of active sites and assessments while also tracking discovered vulnerabilities, retesting procedures, and more. They need to perform repeated security tests to address compliance with regulations, legislation, and internal security policies and also see how their risk posture has changed over time. The enterprises have to protect their data, brand, and bottom line from the harsh impacts of what successful vulnerability exploitation could bring. Micro Focus WebInspect Enterprise enables organizations to solve these security problems quickly, efficiently, and intelligently.
