"In terms of secure development, the SAST scan is very useful because we are able to identify security flaws in the code base itself, for the application."
"The policy reporting for ensuring compliance with industry standards and regulations is pretty comprehensive, especially around PCI. If you do the static analysis, the dynamic analysis, and then a manual penetration test, it aggregates all of these results into one report. And then they create a PCI-specific report around it which helps to illustrate how the application adheres to different standards."
"The time savings has been tremendous. We saw ROI in the first six months."
"The main feature that I have found valuable is the solution's ability to find issues in static analysis. Additionally, there are plenty of useful tools."
"Veracode is a valuable tool in our secure SDLC process."
"Another feature of Veracode is that they provide e-learning, but the e-learning is not basic, rather it is quite advanced... in the e-learning you can check into best practices for developing code and how to prevent improper management of some component of the code that could lead to a vulnerability. The e-learning that Veracode provides is an extremely good tool."
"The reporting being highly accurate is pretty cool. I use another product and I was always looking for answers as to what line, which part of the code, was wrong, and what to do about it. Veracode seems to have a solid database to look things up and a website to look things up."
"Integrations into our developer's IDE (Greenlight) and the DevOps Pipeline SAST / SourceClear Integrations has particularly increased our time to market and confidence."
"The usability and overall scan results are good."
"The scalability is good. The scalability is more than good because it can operate both as a standalone and it can be integrated as part of applications. So that really makes it a very, very versatile solution to have."
"There is a lot of documentation on their website which makes setting it up and using it quite simple."
"Overall, it's a very good tool and a very good engine."
"I haven't seen reporting of that level in any other tool."
"Picks up weaknesses in our app setups."
"It can operate both as a standalone and it can be integrated with other applications, which makes it a very versatile solution to have."
"It's very user-friendly for the testing teams. It's very easy for them to understand things and to fix vulnerabilities."
"Our customers use it to check for unauthorized file transfer."
"I would like to see them provide more content in the developer training section. This field is really changing each day and there are flaws that are detected each day. Some sort of regular updates to the learning would help."
"Improve Mobile Application Dynamic Scanning DAST - .ipa and .apk"
"There is much to be desired of UI and user experience. The UI is very slow. With every click, it just takes a lot of time for the pages to load. We have seen this consistently since getting this solution. The UI and UX are very disjointed."
"Veracode has plenty of data. The problem is the information on the dashboards of Veracode, as the user interface is not great. It's not immediately usable. Most of the time, the best way to use it is to just create issues and put them in JIRA... But if I were a startup, and only had products with a good user interface, I wouldn't use Veracode because the UI is very dated."
"It needs better controls to include/exclude specific sections when creating a report that can be shared externally with customers and prospects."
"The solution could improve the Dynamic Analysis Security Testing(DAST)."
"I would ask Veracode to be a lot more engaged with the customer and set up live sessions where they force the customer to engage with Veracode's technical team. Veracode could show them a repo, how they should do things, this is what these results mean, here is a dashboard, here's the interpretation, here's where you find the results."
"Sometimes the scans are not done quickly, but the solutions that it provides are really good. The quality is high, but the analysis is not done extremely quickly."
"The vulnerability identification speed should be improved."
"I had some issues with the JSON parameters where it found some strange vulnerabilities, but it didn't alert the person using it or me about these vulnerabilities, e.g., an error for SQL injection."
"The jargon used makes it difficult for project managers to understand the issues, and the technical explanations used make it difficult for developers to understand issues. These things should be simplified much more. That would be very helpful for us when explaining to them what needs to be fixed. The report output needs to be simplified."
"The solution limits the number of scans. It would be much better if we could have unlimited scans."
"The pricing is a bit on the higher side."
"When monitoring the traffic we always have issues with the bandwidth consumption and the throttling of traffic."
"Currently only supports web scanning."
"We want to see how much bandwidth usage it consumes. When we monitor traffic we have issues with the consumption and throttling of the traffic."
"I would also like to see updates on a more frequent schedule."
