Researched PortSwigger Burp but chose Veracode: Increased productivity, helped build and improve security and development departmental relationships
Find out what your peers are saying about Parasoft SOAtest vs. PortSwigger Burp and other solutions. Updated: July 2020.
431,024 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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.
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.
They have a feature where they can record traffic and create tests on the report traffic.
Parasoft SOAtest has improved the quality of our automated web services, which can be easily implemented through service chaining and service virtualization.
We can automate our scenarios in a data driven format, which shows there is no rework on scripts. We only need to update the test data and run for a number of scenarios.
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.
The Spider is the most useful feature. It helps to analyze the entire web application, and it finds all the passes and offers an automated identification of security issues.
Some of the extensions, available using Burp Extender, are also very good and we have found issues by using them.
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.
Veracode should make it easier to navigate between the solutions that they offer, i.e. between dynamic, static, and the source code analysis.
The product is very slow to start up, and that is a bit of a problem, actually.
Reports could be customized and more descriptive according to the user's or company's requirements.
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.
The number of false positives need to be reduced on the solution.
I would like to see a more optimized solution, as it currently uses a lot of CPU power and memory.
Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
They do have a confusing licensing structure.
We are completed satisfied with Parasoft SOAtest. The ROI is more than 95%.
The license price is a little expensive, but it provides a better outcome in terms of the end-to-end automation process.
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.
