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."

"The feature that I find the most useful is being able to just see the vulnerabilities online while checking the code and then checking suggestions for fixing them.""Fortify on Demand is easy to use and the reporting is good.""The most valuable feature is that it connects with your development platforms, such as Microsoft Information Server and Jira.""This product is top-notch solution and the technology is the best on the market.""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."

More Micro Focus Fortify on Demand Pros »

"The product has a friendly UI that is easy to use and understand.""The overall quality of the indicator is good.""It's a great product. If you are in a hurry and just want to focus on the functional requirements of any kind of project, SonarQube is highly helpful. It enables the developers to code securely. SonarQube has a Community edition, which is open source and free. There are also three proprietary or paid versions: Enterprise edition, Data Center edition, and Developer edition.""It is a very good tool for analysis despite its limitations.""There is a free version.""Before you even compile, it can catch known vulnerability issues or patterns.""The most valuable features are the segregation containment and the suspension of product services.""The most valuable feature is the security hotspot feature that identifies where your code is prone to have security issues."

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 »

"The thing that could be improved is reducing the cost of usage and including some of the most pricey features, such as dynamic analysis and that sort of functionality, which makes the difference between different types of tools.""The vulnerability analysis does not always provide guidelines for what the developer should do in order to correct the problem, which means that the code has to be manually inspected and understood.""This solution would be improved if the code-quality perspective were added to it, on top of the security aspect.""The technical support is actually a problem that needs to be addressed. Since the acquisition and merger with Hewlett Packard, it has been really hard to know who the technical or salesperson to talk to.""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."

More Micro Focus Fortify on Demand Cons »

"The documentation is not clear and it needs to be updated.""I am not very pleased with the technical debt computation.""If I configure a project in SonarQube, it generates a token. When we're compiling our code with SonarQube, we have to provide the token for security reasons. If IP-based connectivity is established with the solution, the project should automatically be populated without providing any additional token. It will be easy to provide just the IP address. It currently supports this functionality, but it makes a different branch in the project dashboard. From the configuration and dashboard point of view, it should have some transformations. There can be dashboard integration so that we can configure the dashboard for different purposes.""There are limitations to the free version that limit development options as far as languages.""Our developers have complained about the Quality Gates and the number of false positives that this product reports.""I would like to see improvements in defining the quality sets of rules and the quality to ensure code with low-performance does not end up in production.""In the next release, I would like to have notifications because now, it is a bit difficult. I think that's a feature which we could add there and it would benefit the users as well. For every full request, they should be able to see their bugs or vulnerability directly on the surface.""The reporting can be improved."

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."

More Veracode Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It is quite expensive. Pricing and the licensing model could be improved.""The pricing can be improved because it is complex when compared to the competition.""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."

More Micro Focus Fortify on Demand Pricing and Cost Advice »

"We are using the open-source community version, but there are enterprise licenses available.""For the Community edition, there is no extra cost. It's totally free. The Enterprise edition, Data Center edition, and Developer edition are the paid versions.""There is both a free and licensed version. The free version has limitations on development languages and support.""We are using the open-source version, which is available free of cost.""The developer edition is based on cost per lines of code.""I was using the Community Edition, which is available free of charge.""I am satisfied with the pricing.""A low cost long-term solution for non-critical situations."
