Researched Coverity but chose Veracode: Source code composition analysis helps with vulnerabilities and license compliance
Straightforward to install and reports few false positives, but it should be easier to specify your own validation and sanitation routines

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"One of the valuable features is that it gives us the option of static scanning. Most tools of this type are centered around dynamic scanning. Having a static scan is very important."
"It has an easy-to-use interface."
"We are using the Veracode tools to expose the engineers to the security vulnerabilities that were introduced with the new features, i.e. a lot faster or sooner in the development life cycle."
"The most valuable feature comes from the fact that it is cloud-based, and I can scale up without having to worry about any other infrastructure needs."
"I have used this solution in multiple projects for vulnerability testing and finding security leaks within the code."
"We used it for performing security checks. We have many Java applications and Android applications. Essentially it was used for checking the security validations for compliance purposes."
"Veracode is a valuable tool in our secure SDLC process."
"Integrations into our developer's IDE (Greenlight) and the DevOps Pipeline SAST / SourceClear Integrations has particularly increased our time to market and confidence."
"The solution has helped to increase staff productivity and improved our work significantly by approximately 20 percent."
"The security analysis features are the most valuable features of this solution."
"The features I find most valuable is that our entire company can publish the analysis results into our central space."
"Coverity is quite stable and we haven’t had any issues or any downtime."
"The most valuable feature is the integration with Jenkins."
"The most valuable feature is that there were not a whole lot of false positives, at least on the codebases that I looked at."
"They have a feature where they can record traffic and create tests on the report traffic."
"We would like a way to mark entire modules as "safe." The lack of this feature hasn't stopped us previously, it just makes our task more tedious at times. That kind of feature would save us time."
"Veracode should make it easier to navigate between the solutions that they offer, i.e. between dynamic, static, and the source code analysis."
"I would like to see expanded coverage for supporting more platforms, frameworks, and languages."
"Ideally, I would like better reporting that gives me a more concise and accurate description of what my pain points are, and how to get to them."
"One of the things that we have from a reporting point of view, is that we would love to see a graphical report. If you look through a report for something that has come back from Veracode, it takes a whole lot of time to just go through all the pages of the code to figure out exactly what it says. We know certain areas don’t have the greatest security features but those are usually minor and we don’t want to see those types of notifications."
"It needs better controls to include/exclude specific sections when creating a report that can be shared externally with customers and prospects."
"Improve Mobile Application Dynamic Scanning DAST - .ipa and .apk"
"I think for us the biggest improvement would be to have an indicator when there's something wrong with a scan."
"They could improve the usability. For example, how you set things up, even though it's straightforward, it could be still be easier."
"The quality of the code needs improvement."
"The setup takes very long."
"I would like to see integration with popular IDEs, such as Eclipse."
"Ideally, it would have a user-based license that does not have a restriction in the number of lines of code."
"It should be easier to specify your own validation routines and sanitation routines."
"The product is very slow to start up, and that is a bit of a problem, actually."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"Veracode has been fair. We use their SaaS solution and it's just an annual subscription."
"No issues, the pricing seems reasonable."
"They just changed their pricing model two weeks ago. They went from a per-app license to a per-megabyte license. I know that the dynamic scan was $500 per app. Static analysis was about $4500 yearly. The license is only for the number of users, it doesn't matter what data you put in there. That was the old model. I do not know how the new model works."
"They have just streamlined the licensing and they have a number of flexible options available, so overall it is quite good, albeit pricey."
"For the value we get out of it, coupled with the live defect review sessions, we find it an effective value for the money. We are a larger organization."
"I don't really know about the pricing, but I'd say it's worth whatever Veracode is charging, because the solution is that good."
"Coverity is quite expensive."
"The licensing fees are based on the number of lines of code."
"The price is competitive with other solutions."
"They do have a confusing licensing structure."
