Find out what your peers are saying about Parasoft SOAtest vs. Rapid7 AppSpider and other solutions. Updated: July 2020.
430,905 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.
It is really accurate and the rate of false positives is very low.
I would say that it is stable, as I am not aware of any major issues.
The entire solution is interactive and has a point-and-click user experience, which makes it easy to find items or drill down on information. You don't need specialized skills to use the product.
The most valuable feature is the reporting, which is compliant with international standards.
Rapid7 AppSpider is good at managing different applications. It uses applets and generates reports to cover the PCA/GDPR compliance requirements.
I like the ability the product has to detect vulnerabilities quickly, when it has been released in our environment, then displaying them to us.
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.
Support response times are slow and can be improved.
The dashboard and interface are crucial and they need some improvement.
The solution is too slow. It could take a full day to scan. Competitors are much faster.
This price of this solution is a little bit expensive.
Implementing Rapid7 AppSpider requires scanning and self-identification mechanisms. You can add different types of authentication to each scan.
The product needs to be able to scale for large companies, like ours. We have millions of IP addresses that need to be scanned, and the scalability is not great.
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.
It is expensive if you want to buy the Enterprise version that is able to scan multiple applications at once.
