Fortify Application Defender Room for Improvement

Tom Haakma
Director of Security at Merito
The biggest complaint that I have heard concerns additional platform support because right now, it only supports applications that are written in .NET and Java. They need better support for applications written in Python or more advanced web service-type implementations. Better support for other architectures is critical. Technical support needs to be improved. It would be helpful to include agent deployment as part of the Azure DevOps marketplace. This would make it really easy for customers to get this plugin and install it within their application centers. View full review »

There are a couple of vulnerabilities not covered by the solution and we are working on how we can improve on these things. An example of this is when we have a static value that is stored in a database. We need to use a workaround when a value is not exposed directly to the code base, where we check that code dynamically. The workbench is a little bit complex when you first start using it.

The solution is quite expensive. There could be little improvements made in the solution's performance, reporting, management, interface, dashboard, etc. Their level of support could also be better. They should be more qualified and quicker to respond, for example. It would be beneficial if the dashboard integrated with JIRA. View full review »
