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

Pros
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.The DDoS testing module is useful and quick to use.

t's a cloud-based solution, so there was no installation involved.The static code analyzers are the most valuable features of this solution.The solution scans our code and provides us with a dashboard of all the vulnerabilities and the criticality of the vulnerabilities. It is very useful that they provide right then and there all the information about the vulnerability, including possible fixes, as well as some additional documentation and links to the authoritative sources of why this is an issue and what's the correct way to deal with it.I do not remember any issues with stability.The licensing was good.The installation was easy.It improves future security scans.Fortify helps us to stay updated with the newest languages and versions coming out.

Cons
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.I would appreciate some preconfigured network neighborhoods, which are predefined settings for testing networks.

The solution has some issues with latency. Sometimes it takes a while to respond. This issue should be addressed.The reporting capabilities need improvement, as there are some features that we would like to have but are not available at the moment.Primarily for a complex, advanced website, they don't really understand some of the functionalities. So for instance, they could tell us that there is a vulnerability because somebody could possibly do something, but they don't really understand the code to realize that we actually negate that vulnerability through some other mechanism in the program. In addition, the technical support is just not there. We have open tickets. They don't respond. Even if they respond, we're not seeing eye to eye. As the company got sold and bought, the support got worse.There were some regulated compliances, which were not there.Sometimes when we run a full scan, we have a bunch of issues in the code. We should not have any issues.We would like a reduction in the time frame of scans. It takes us three to five days to run a scan now. We would like that reduced to under three days.It's still a little bit too complex for regular developers. It takes a little bit more time than usual. I know static code scan is not the main focus of the tool, but the overall time span to scan the code, and even to set up the code scanning, is a bit overwhelming for regular developers.If you have a continuous integration in place, for example, and you want it to run along with your build and you want it to be fast, you're not going to get it. It adds to your development time.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We have a one year subscription license for $25,000 US Dollars.There is no differentiation in licenses for Breaking Point. For one license, you will get all the features. There is no complexity in that.

It's a yearly contract, but I don't remember the dollar amount.The licensing was good because the licenses have the heavy centralized server.The subscription model, on a per-scan basis, is a bit expensive. That's another reason we are not using it for all the apps.
