Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""When it is set up properly, it can do scanning on web apps with multiple engines automatically.""The setup is usually straightforward."

More Rapid7 AppSpider Pros »

"The initial setup for us was easy enough. We didn't face too many issues. Deployment took maybe 30 minutes. It's quite quick and doesn't cause too much trouble at the outset.""It uses a signature-based method to check for problems with your code and will provide an alert if anything is found.""The templates feature is very easy. You just choose the kind of attack you want on your web application, and you run it against that template and receive a report. It's great."

Cons
"Integration could be better.""AppSpider could improve in the area of integration. They need to add more integration opportunities.""Support response times are slow and can be improved.""The dashboard and interface are crucial and they need some improvement.""The enterprise interface is too simple. It should be more customizable.""The tech support is responsive but issues remain unresolved."

More Rapid7 AppSpider Cons »

"In the future, if they can have integration with a lot of ticketing systems then it would be amazing.""The interface should be a little bit easier to manage. Sometimes, the logic that they use is kind of strange. They need to work a little bit more on their interface to make it more understandable. The interface is the only problem. I'm using Rapid7, which is very intuitive. There are other applications available in the market with a better interface. They can include more techniques or options to test different types of security because the templates are limited. It would be great to see them follow the MITRE ATT&CK framework or what is there in tools like Veracode and Synopsys.""The reporting is definitely an aspect of the solution that's in need of some work. We found that we'd try to use widgets, but often getting them to work for us wasn't very clear. They need to be more user friendly or offer better instructions."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is expensive if you want to buy the Enterprise version that is able to scan multiple applications at once.""The price is pretty fair."
