Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The OWASP's tool is free of cost, which gives it a great advantage, especially for smaller companies to make use of the tool.""The reporting is quite intuitive, which gives you a clear indication of what kind of vulnerability you have that you can drill down on to gather more information.""The scalability of this product is very good.""Automatic updates and pull request analysis.""Simple to use, good user interface.""The interface is easy to use.""The solution is good at reporting the vulnerabilities of the application.""The stability of the solution is very good."

More OWASP Zap Pros »

"We are using the Veracode tools to expose the engineers to the security vulnerabilities that were introduced with the new features, i.e. a lot faster or sooner in the development life cycle.""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.""I have used this solution in multiple projects for vulnerability testing and finding security leaks within the code.""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.""Veracode is a valuable tool in our secure SDLC process.""Integrations into our developer's IDE (Greenlight) and the DevOps Pipeline SAST / SourceClear Integrations has particularly increased our time to market and confidence.""The source composition analysis component is great because it gives our developers some comfort in using new libraries.""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."

Cons
"There's very little documentation that comes with OWASP Zap.""The automated vulnerability assessments that the application performs needs to be simplified as well as diversified.""I'd like to see a kind of feature where we can just track what our last vulnerability was and how it has improved or not. More reports that can have some kind of base-lining, I think that would be a good feature too. I'm not sure whether it can be achieved and implement but I think that would really help.""I prefer Burp Suite to SWASP Zap because of the extensive coverage it offers.""Deployment is somewhat complicated.""Too many false positives; test reports could be improved.""The documentation needs to be improved because I had to learn everything from watching YouTube videos.""It would be ideal if I could try some pre-built deployment scenarios so that I don't have to worry about whether the configuration sector team is doing it right or wrong. That would be very helpful."

"Veracode should make it easier to navigate between the solutions that they offer, i.e. between dynamic, static, and the source code analysis.""I would like to see expanded coverage for supporting more platforms, frameworks, and languages.""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.""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.""It needs better controls to include/exclude specific sections when creating a report that can be shared externally with customers and prospects.""Improve Mobile Application Dynamic Scanning DAST - .ipa and .apk""I think for us the biggest improvement would be to have an indicator when there's something wrong with a scan.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"OWASP Zap is free to use.""This app is completely free and open source. So there is no question about any pricing.""This is an open-source solution and can be used free of charge."

More OWASP Zap Pricing and Cost Advice »

"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.""They have just streamlined the licensing and they have a number of flexible options available, so overall it is quite good, albeit pricey.""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.""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.""Veracode's price is high. I would like them to better optimize their pricing.""If I compare the pricing with other software tools, then it is quite competitive. Whatever the price is, they have always given us a good discount.""Veracode is expensive. Some of its products are expensive. I don't think it's way more expensive than its competitors. The dynamic is definitely worth it, as I think it's cheaper than the competitors. The static scan is a little bit more expensive, around 20 percent more expensive. The manual pen test is more expensive, but it is an expensive service because it's a manual pen test and we also do retests. I don't think it is way more expensive than the competitors, but it's about 15 to 20 percent more expensive.""We use this product per project rather than per developer... Your development model will really determine what the best fit is for you in terms of licensing, because of the project-based licensing. If you do a few projects, that's more attractive. If you have a large number of developers, that would also make the product a little more attractive."

Overview

Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) is a free, open-source penetration testing tool being maintained under the umbrella of the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP). ZAP is designed specifically for testing web applications and is both flexible and extensible.

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.
