Continuously looks at application traffic, adding to the coverage of our manual pen testing

What is our primary use case?

We use the solution for application vulnerability scanning and pen-testing. We have a workflow where we use a Contrast agent and deploy it to apps from our development team. Contrast continuously monitors the apps. When any development team comes to us and asks, "Hey, can you take care of the Assess, run a pen test and do vulnerability scanning for our application?" We have a workflow and deploy a Contrast agent to their app. Because Contrast continuously monitors the app, when we have notifications from Contrast and they go to the developers who are responsible for fixing that piece of the… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "We use the Contrast OSS feature that allows us to look at third-party, open-source software libraries, because it has a cool interface where you can look at all the different libraries. It has some really cool additional features where it gives us how many instances in which something has been used... It tells us it has been used 10 times out of 20 workloads, for example. Then we know for sure that OSS is being used."
  • "Contrast Security Assess covers a wide range of applications like .NET Framework, Java, PSP, Node.js, etc. But there are some like Ubuntu and the .NET Core which are not covered. They have it in their roadmap to have these agents. If they have that, we will have complete coverage."

What other advice do I have?

If you are thinking about Contrast, you should evaluate it for your specific needs. Companies are different. The way they work is different. I know a bunch of companies that still have the Waterfall model. So evaluate and see how it fits in your mode. It's very easy to go and buy a tool, but if it does not fit very well in your processes and in your software development lifecycle, it will be wasted money. My strongest advice is: See how well it fits in your model and in your environment. For example, are developers using more of pre-production? Are they using a Dev sandbox? How is QA working…

Scans our thousands of dependencies every time we build and rechecks them daily, making us aware of what's going on

What is our primary use case?

Our use case is basically what Snyk sells itself as, which is for becoming aware of and then managing any vulnerabilities in third-party, open-source software that we pull into our product. We have a lot of dependencies across both the tools and the product services that we build, and Snyk allows us to be alerted to any vulnerabilities in those open-source libraries, to prioritize them, and then manage things. We also use it to manage and get visibility into any vulnerabilities in our Docker containers and Kubernetes deployments. We have very good visibility of things that aren't ours that… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "We're loving some of the Kubernetes integration as well. That's really quite cool. It's still in the early days of our use of it, but it looks really exciting. In the Kubernetes world, it's very good at reporting on the areas around the configuration of your platform, rather than the things that you've pulled in. There's some good advice there that allows you to prioritize whether something is important or just worrying. That's very helpful."
  • "There is always more work to do around managing the volume of information when you've got thousands of vulnerabilities. Trying to get those down to zero is virtually impossible, either through ignoring them all or through fixing them. That filtering or information management is always going to be something that can be improved."

What other advice do I have?

My advice is just try it. If you've got a modern development pipeline, it's really easy to wire up, if you've got somebody with the right skills to do that. We found with a development community, it's really easy to build these things. Get on with it and try it. It's really easy to trial and see what it's telling you about. That's one of the great upsides of that model: Play with it, convince yourself it's worth it, and then talk to them about buying it. It's hard to judge Snyk's vulnerability database in terms of comprehensiveness and accuracy. It clearly is telling us a lot of information. I…

Straightforward to install and reports few false positives, but it should be easier to specify your own validation and sanitation routines

What is our primary use case?

I am a consultant and I work to bring solutions to different companies. Static code analysis is one of the things that I assist people with, and Coverity is one of the tools that I use for doing that. I worked with Coverity when doing a couple of different PoCs. For these, I get a few different teams of developers together and we want to decide what makes the most sense for each team as far as scanning technologies. So, part of that is what languages are supported, part of that is how extensible it is, and part of that extensibility is do the developers have time to actually create custom… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is that there were not a whole lot of false positives, at least on the codebases that I looked at."
  • "It should be easier to specify your own validation routines and sanitation routines."

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is considering this product is to first look around your organization to see if it has already been implemented in another group. If you're a big organization then Coverity or a similar tool may already be in use. In cases like this, I would say that it is best to adopt the same tool because your organization has already gone down that path and there are no huge differences in the capabilities of these tools. Some of them do it in different ways and some do things that others don't, but you won't have the initial bump of the learning curve and you can leverage their…

Easy to deploy and applicable for various uses

What is our primary use case?

I am now working in a consultancy company and I work with different clients in different industries. For this reason I implement, for example, a delivery pipeline with the process whereby we need to validate the quality gate of the quality code. Meaning, the developer creates the unit testing and the code coverage, but grants the code coverage for a specific person. In other cases, we used to see what the technical depth was to see if if there are any bugs in the applications - the web application, mobile application and different languages, like, C-Sharp, JavaScript or Java, et cetera. We… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "It is an easy tool that you can deploy and configure. After that you can measure the history of your obligation and integrate it with other tools like GitLab or GitHub or Azure DevOps to do quality code analysis."
  • "In terms of what can be improved, the areas that need more attention in the solution are its architecture and development."

What other advice do I have?

I do recommend SonarQube because it is an easy tool that you can deploy and configure. After that you can measure the history of your obligation and integrate it with other tools like GitLab or GitHub or Azure DevOps to do quality code analysis. On a scale of one to ten, I would give SonarQube an eight. To give it a 10 and not an eight, I would like to see architecture development and the QA area improved.

Great at reporting vulnerabilities, helps with security, and reveals development threats well

What is our primary use case?

Currently, we build our products for the banking industry and use this solution in that process. From a development cycle, we update the SQL injections that basically shows what a developer may have to address. Then, if there is still a problem, we're concerned at the architect level. That's at least initially reported by the customers when they do another round of review after we deliver our code.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is good at reporting the vulnerabilities of the application."
  • "It would be ideal if I could try some pre-built deployment scenarios so that I don't have to worry about whether the configuration sector team is doing it right or wrong. That would be very helpful."

What other advice do I have?

We are an IT service provider, which means that we use a variety of tools based on what our customer preferences are. There's all, at most, I would say, about 20 companies that we would have the funds to use the solution with. OWASP is definitely in the top three as a tool that we would probably recommend to our team, as a frequent users' tool, however, I don't believe we have any kind of a formal relationship with the company. Multiple teams use it. I have not heard of anybody complaining about anything to do with this particular solution. I would say it's pretty good. I would give it a…
