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 »

"With the Extender Tab, if you know how to code then you can create a plugin and add it to Burp.""You can scan any number of applications and it updates its database.""The most valuable features are Burp Intruder and Burp Scanner.""The most valuable feature is the application security. It also has a reasonable price.""The way they do the research and they keep their profile up to date is great. They identify vulnerabilities and update them immediately.""The suite testing models are very good. It's very secure.""Once I capture the proxy, I'm able to transfer across. All the requested information is there. I can send across the request to what we call a repeater, where I get to ready the payload that I send to the application. Put in malicious content and then see if it's responding to it.""BurpSuite helps us to identify and fix silly mistakes that are sometimes introduced by our developers in their coding."

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 »

"There is not much automation in the tool.""If we're running a huge number of scans regularly, it slows down the tool.""There should be a heads up display like the one available in OWASP Zap.""The Burp Collaborator needs improvement. There also needs to be improved integration.""The biggest drawback is reporting. It's not so good. I can download them, but they're not so informative.""The solution doesn't offer very good scalability.""The biggest improvement that I would like to see from PortSwigger that today many people see as an issue in their testing. There might be a feature which might be desired.""The Auto Scanning features should be updated more frequently and should include the latest attack vectors."

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
"At $400 or $500 per license paid annually, it is a very cheap tool.""There are different licenses available that include a free version.""Licensing costs are about $450/year for one use. For larger organizations, they're able to test against multiple applications while simultaneously others might have multiple versions of applications which needs to be tested which is why we have the enterprise edition.""There is no setup cost and the cost of licensing is affordable.""The yearly cost is about $300.""Our licensing cost is approximately $400 USD per year.""The cost is approximately $500 for a single license, and there are no additional costs beyond the standard licensing fees."

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.

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.

Burp Suite is an integrated platform for performing security testing of web applications. Its various tools work seamlessly together to support the entire testing process, from initial mapping and analysis of an application's attack surface, through to finding and exploiting security vulnerabilities.
