My advice for anybody who is considering Fortify Application Defender is to try it before you buy it. It is one of those things that once you see it in action, it is pretty impressive. Considering there is a free trial available, I think that more people should try it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

We've been using the private cloud deployment model. If you need a huge impact, a business impact, then I think I would recommend HP Fortify. However, if a user is looking for a small scale application with less business impact, I would go with a free solution. I would rate the solution ten out of ten. Aside from the cost, the application is pretty good.
