Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The usability and overall scan results are good.""Picks up weaknesses in our app setups.""The scalability is good. The scalability is more than good because it can operate both as a standalone and it can be integrated as part of applications. So that really makes it a very, very versatile solution to have.""For us, the most valuable aspect of the solution is the log-sequence feature.""It can operate both as a standalone and it can be integrated with other applications, which makes it a very versatile solution to have.""Our developers can run the attacks directly from their environments, desktops.""The vulnerability scanning option for analyzing the security loopholes on the websites is the most valuable feature of this solution.""The automated approach to these repetitive discovery attempts would take days to do manually and therefore it helps reduce the time needed to do an assessment."

"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."

"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."

Cons
"There is room for improvement in website authentication because I've seen other products that can do it much better.""Currently only supports web scanning.""We want to see how much bandwidth usage it consumes. When we monitor traffic we have issues with the consumption and throttling of the traffic.""The solution limits the number of scans. It would be much better if we could have unlimited scans.""When monitoring the traffic we always have issues with the bandwidth consumption and the throttling of traffic.""Tools that would allow us to work more efficiently with the mobile environment, with Android and iOS.""In terms of what needs improvement, the way the licensing model is currently is not very convenient for us because initially, when we bought it, the licensing model was very flexible, but now it restricts us.""It would be nice to have a feature to "retest" only a single vulnerability that the customer reports as patched, and delete it from the next scans since it has already been patched."

More Acunetix Vulnerability Scanner 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."

"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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I would say that Acunetix is expensive because there are products on the market with similar features that are equally or better-priced.""The costs aren't very expensive. It costs around $3000 or $4000.""All things considered, I think it has a good price/value ratio.""The pricing and licensing are reasonable to a point. In order to run multiple scans at a time, we are going to have to purchase a 100 count license, which is an overkill. Though, compared to what we were paying for, the cost seems reasonable.""When we looked at all other vendors and what they were asking for, to provide a third of what Acunetix was capable of doing, it was an easy decision... But now that it's coming to a cost where it's line with market value, it becomes more of a competition... Acunetix is raising the cost of licensing. It's 3.5 times what we were initially quoted.""Acunetix was around the same price as all the other vendors we looked at, nothing special."

"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."

"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."
