Veracode Primary Use Case

Marcello Teodori
Software Architect at Alfresco Software

The use case is that we have quite a few projects on GitHub. As we are a consulting company, some of these projects are open source and others are enterprise and private. We do security investigating for these projects. We scan the repository for both the static analysis—to find things that might be dangerous—and we use the Software Composition Analysis as well. We get notifications when we are using some open source library that has a known vulnerability and we have to upgrade it. We can plan accordingly.

We are using the software as a service.

Information Assurance Manager at xMatters

We have three use cases. We have the dynamic scans that we use to scan the production, public-facing URLs. We also use the static scan where we work with the Dev team and scan the code base for the web application and the mobile application on both iOS and Android. Our third use case is manual penetration tests, which my team manages. We do annual manual penetration tests.

It's deployed to our platform infrastructure, which is in a public cloud.

Manager, Information Technology at Broadcom Corporation

Veracode has both static application security testing as well as dynamic application security testing, also called Dynamic Analysis. Our primary use case was on the static analysis side, not on the dynamic, because we have an automated tool in the dynamic analysis scope. So our primary use was static analysis security testing.

We use it for dynamic scanning and Static Code Analysis as well as for Software Composition Analysis (SCA).

We do use this solution's support for cloud-native applications.

Engineering Security Manager at Nextiva

Our primary use case of this solution is for static and dynamic analysis along with the source gear for the third party dependency (not IDM). 

We were looking into actually moving towards IDM, but that's the extent of my knowledge. They are licensed as two separate products. They're part of the same platform, but they are licensed separately.

We have Veracode, Veracode Developer Training, Veracode Software Composition Analysis, and SourceClear. SourceClear and SCA are pretty much the same. They just support different languages. Veracode as a whole, the top option, is the one that includes everything.

Deepak Naik
Product Owner - DevOps at Digite

We use Veracode primarily for three purposes:

  1. Static Analysis, which is integrated into our CI/CD pipeline, using APIs. 
  2. Every release gets certified for a static code analysis and dynamic code analysis. There is a UAT server, where it gets deployed with the latest release, then we perform the dynamic code scanning on that particular URL.
  3. Software Composition Analysis: We use this periodically to understand the software composition from an open source licensing and open source component vulnerability perspective.

Mauro Verderosa
Cybersecurity Expert at PSYND

We use both the static and the dynamic scanning. What we do is run the code through the scanner once we make any modifications. And periodically, we also run the dynamic to connect several applications. We use Veracode to check for specific vulnerabilities such as cross-site scripting. When we are checking for those vulnerabilities, we take a portion of code that is going to be generated and we run the scanner.

We use the Veracode SAST solution to scan the Java, Node.js, and Python microservices as part of our CI/CD pipeline, wherein we are using our CI/CD server as Bamboo, Jenkins, and GitLab CI/CD. 

We have teams for both our cloud pipeline and on-prem pipeline, and both teams use this solution. We are using Veracode to constantly run the internal application source code and ensure the code's security hygiene.

R&D Director at a computer software company with 201-500 employees

We focus on these two use cases: 

  1. Our first use case is for Static Analysis (SAST). The purpose of it is to scan our code for any vulnerabilities and security breaches. Then, we get some other reports from the tool, pointing us to the problematic line of code, showing us what is the vulnerability, and giving us suggestions on how to fix or mitigate them.
  2. The second use case is for the Software Composition Analysis (SCA) tool, which is scanning our open sources and third-party libraries that we consumed. They scan and check on the internal database (or whatever depository tool it is using), then they return back a report saying our open sources, the versions, and what are the exposures of using those versions. For any vulnerability, it suggests the minimum upgrades to do in order to move to another more secure version.

Sr. Security Architect at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees

We are using Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST), Static Application Security Testing (SAST), and Static Component Analysis (SCA). We use different types of scanning across numerous applications. We also use Greenlight IDE integration. We are scanning external web applications, internal web applications, and mobile applications with various types/combinations of scanning. We use this both to improve our application security as well as achieve compliance with various compliance bodies that require code scanning.

Senior Security Analyst at a wellness & fitness company with 1,001-5,000 employees

Veracode is a cornerstone of our Development Security Operations Program, particularly scanning automation and remediation tracking.

We've been able to monitor the release cycle and verify our Security Standards are met by setting policy and ensuring scans are taking place. If a scan fails to meet our standard the build breaks and the flaws are remediated before releasing to Stage and ultimately Production -  where the potential impact is much more costly. 

We have discovered opportunities to make our code even better thanks to Veracode!

This was intended to scan all of our custom development efforts to ensure a certain level of (secure) code quality. Right now the scope of that effort is limited to web exposed systems but with maturity, we hope to increase that scope.
