Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The reporting being highly accurate is pretty cool. I use another product and I was always looking for answers as to what line, which part of the code, was wrong, and what to do about it. Veracode seems to have a solid database to look things up and a website to look things up.""Veracode's cloud-based approach, coupled with the appliance that lets us use Veracode to scan internal-only web applications, has provided a seamless, always-up-to-date application security scanning solution.""The source composition analysis component is great because it gives our developers some comfort in using new libraries.""Integrations into our developer's IDE (Greenlight) and the DevOps Pipeline SAST / SourceClear Integrations has particularly increased our time to market and confidence.""Veracode is a valuable tool in our secure SDLC process.""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.""I have used this solution in multiple projects for vulnerability testing and finding security leaks within the code.""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."

"This solution saves us time due to the low number of false positives detected."

More HCL AppScan Pros »

"The solution has many protocols and options, making it very flexible.""There is a virtual version of the product which is scaled to 100s of virtual testing blades.""We use Ixia BreakingPoint for Layer 7 traffic generation. That's what we like."

Cons
"The triage indicator was kind of hard to find. It's a very small arrow and I had no idea it was there.""One feature I would like would be more selectivity in email alerts. While I like getting these, I would like to be able to be more granular in which ones I receive.""I think for us the biggest improvement would be to have an indicator when there's something wrong with a scan.""Improve Mobile Application Dynamic Scanning DAST - .ipa and .apk""It needs better controls to include/exclude specific sections when creating a report that can be shared externally with customers and prospects.""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.""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.""I would like to see expanded coverage for supporting more platforms, frameworks, and languages."

More Veracode Cons »

"IBM Security AppScan needs to add performance optimization for quickly scanning the target web applications."

More HCL AppScan Cons »

"The solution originally was hard to configure; I'm not sure if they've updated this to make it simpler, but if not, it's something that could be streamlined.""The production traffic simulations are not realistic enough for some types of DDoS attacks.""The quality of the traffic generation could be improved with Ixia BreakingPoint, i.e. to get closer to being accurate in what a real user will do."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""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.""They have just streamlined the licensing and they have a number of flexible options available, so overall it is quite good, albeit pricey.""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.""Veracode has been fair. We use their SaaS solution and it's just an annual subscription.""No issues, the pricing seems reasonable."

Information Not Available
"or us, the pricing is somewhere around $12,000 a year. I'm unsure as to what new licenses now cost.""We have a one year subscription license for $25,000 US Dollars."

Overview

Veracode covers all your Application Security needs in one solution through a combination of five analysis types; static analysis, dynamic analysis, software composition analysis, interactive application security testing, and penetration testing. Unlike on-premise solutions that are hard to scale and focused on finding rather than fixing, Veracode comprises a unique combination of SaaS technology and on-demand expertise that enables DevSecOps through integration with your pipeline, and empowers developers to find and fix security defects.

IBM Security AppScan enhances web application security and mobile application security, improves application security program management and strengthens regulatory compliance. By scanning your web and mobile applications prior to deployment, AppScan enables you to identify security vulnerabilities and generate reports and fix recommendations.

By simulating real-world legitimate traffic, distributed denial of service (DDoS), exploits, malware, and fuzzing, BreakingPoint validates an organization’s security infrastructure, reduces the risk of network degradation by almost 80%, and increases attack readiness by nearly 70%.
