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

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Veracode is one of the more expensive solutions in the market, but it is worth the expense because of the eLearning and the security consultations; everything is included in the license.""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.""It is very reasonably priced compared to what we were paying our previous vendor. For the same price, we are getting much more value and reducing our AppSec costs from 40 to 50 percent.""Veracode's price is high. I would like them to better optimize their pricing.""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.""Licensing cost is on a yearly basis and there are no additional costs, the pricing is straightforward.""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.""From a cost perspective, it seems okay, although we will probably evaluate alternatives next time it's up for renewal because for us, it's a relatively high cost, and we want to make sure that we are using our resources most appropriately."

"SonarQube price is a little bit higher than Kiuwan's. Kiuwan also gives a little bit of flexibility in terms of pricing.""We use the free version; there are no hidden costs or licensing required.""I requested this license for one million lines of code and they accepted this.""On the pricing side, it's 3,000 Euros for 1 million lines of code.""I was using the Community Edition, which is available free of charge.""Can try developer version for 14 days on the free trial.""We pay €10 per month for this solution, which is good. It provides a good value for money.""The price of the solution could be reduced."

Overview

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.

Our mission is to help everyone involved in software engineering create secure and trustworthy code without slowing down.

Combining the fields of databases, programming languages, data science and security we're making the world’s software truly searchable, so that even deep meaningful questions about security can be answered, helping software organizations better understand their code, engineering processes and people.

SonarQube is the leading tool for continuously inspecting Code Quality and Code Security, and guiding development teams during code reviews. SonarQube provides clear remediation guidance for 27 languages so developers can understand and fix issues, and so teams can deliver better and safer software.
