Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The static scan is the feature that we use the most, as it gives us insight into our source code. We have it integrated with our continuous integration, continuous delivery system, so we can get insight quickly.""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 centralized view of different testing types helps reduce our risk exposure. The development teams have the freedom to choose their own libraries and languages. What happens is sometimes developers feel like a particular library is okay to use, then they will start using it, developing some functionality around it. However, as per our mandate, for every new repository that gets added and scanned, a report gets published. Based on that report, we decide if we can continue. In the past, we have found, by mistake, some developers have used copyleft licenses, which are a bit risky to use. We immediately replace these with more permissive, open-source licenses, so we are safe in the end.""Veracode is a valuable tool in our secure SDLC process.""One of the features they have is Software Composition Analysis. When organizations use third-party, open source libraries with their application development, because they're open source they quite often have a lot of bugs. There are always patches coming out for those open source applications. You really have to stay on your toes and keep up with any third-party libraries that might be integrated into your application. Veracode's Software Composition Analysis scans those libraries and we find that very valuable.""Integrations into our developer's IDE (Greenlight) and the DevOps Pipeline SAST / SourceClear Integrations has particularly increased our time to market and confidence.""The solution's ability to prevent vulnerable code from going into production is perfectly fine. It delivers, at least for the reports that we have been checking on Java and JavaScript. It has reported things that were helpful.""The visibility into application status helps reduce risk exposure for our software. Today, any findings provided by the DAST are reviewed by the developers and we have internal processes in place to correct those findings before there can be a release. So it absolutely does prevent us from releasing weak code."

"The way they do the research and they keep their profile up to date is great. They identify vulnerabilities and update them immediately.""We use the solution for vulnerability assessment in respect of the application and the sites.""I have found this solution has more plugins than other competitors which is a benefit. You are able to attach different plugins to the security scan to add features. For example, you can check to see if there are any payment systems that exist on a server, or username and password brute force analysis.""The active scanner, which does an automated search of any web vulnerabilities.""There is no other tool like it. I like the intuitiveness and the plugins that are available.""The solution has a pretty simple setup.""The feature that we have found most valuable is that it comes with pre-set configurations. They have a set of predefined options where you can pick one and start scanning. We also have the option of creating our own configurations, like how often do the applications need to be scanned.""The solution has a great user interface."

"The most valuable feature is the reporting, which provides a good level of detail with respect to vulnerabilities.""Tenable.io Web Application Scanning is very easy to use.""Our customers adopt this solution because of the replication testing and the vulnerability assessment it can do. It is a multi-faceted product."

Cons
"The triage indicator was kind of hard to find. It's a very small arrow and I had no idea it was there.""The reports on offer are too verbose.""The ideal situation in terms of putting the results in front of the developers would be with Veracode integration into the developer environment (IDE). They do have a plugin, which we've used in the past, but we were not as positive about it.""The solution could improve the Dynamic Analysis Security Testing(DAST).""I think for us the biggest improvement would be to have an indicator when there's something wrong with a scan.""The policies you have, where you can tune the findings you get, don't allow you not to file tickets about certain findings. It will always report the findings, even if you know you're not that concerned about a library writing to a system log, for example. It will keep raising them, even though you may have a ticket about it. The integration will keep updating the ticket every time the scan runs.""The product has issues with scanning.""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."

More Veracode Cons →

"It should provide a better way to integrate with Jenkins so that DAST (dynamic application security testing) can be automated.""The use of system memory is an area that can be improved because it uses a lot.""We wish that the Spider feature would appear in the same shape that it does in previous versions.""The solution doesn't offer very good scalability.""I am from Brazil. The currency exchange rate from a dollar to a Brazilian Real is quite steep. It is almost six to one. It would be good if it can be sold in the local currency, and its price is cheaper for us.""There is not much automation in the tool.""One thing that is not up to the mark in PortSwigger is web application testing. I found some issues with its performance and reporting. They should work on these and give us a better outcome.""There should be a heads up display like the one available in OWASP Zap."

More PortSwigger Burp Suite Professional Cons →

"The reporting has a very limited customization capability.""I would like for them to add proxy filtering, where you can transfer and alter the package. It is fully automated. Other web application testers programs are actually proxy software, and the proxy software gives you the flexibility of modifying the outgoing package, which will actually help you in exploiting any vulnerability in detail.""It would be great if there were a dashboard that is more user-friendly."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "For the value we get out of it, coupled with the live defect review sessions, we find it an effective value for the money. We are a larger organization."
  • "I don't really know about the pricing, but I'd say it's worth whatever Veracode is charging, because the solution is that good."
  • "Veracode's price is high. I would like them to better optimize their pricing."
  • "If I compare the pricing with other software tools, then it is quite competitive. Whatever the price is, they have always given us a good discount."
  • "Veracode is expensive. Some of its products are expensive. I don't think it's way more expensive than its competitors. The dynamic is definitely worth it, as I think it's cheaper than the competitors. The static scan is a little bit more expensive, around 20 percent more expensive. The manual pen test is more expensive, but it is an expensive service because it's a manual pen test and we also do retests. I don't think it is way more expensive than the competitors, but it's about 15 to 20 percent more expensive."
  • "We use this product per project rather than per developer... Your development model will really determine what the best fit is for you in terms of licensing, because of the project-based licensing. If you do a few projects, that's more attractive. If you have a large number of developers, that would also make the product a little more attractive."
  • "The pricing is really fair compared to a lot of other tools on the market."
  • "It is very reasonably priced compared to what we were paying our previous vendor. For the same price, we are getting much more value and reducing our AppSec costs from 40 to 50 percent."
  • More Veracode Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "There are different licenses available that include a free version."
  • "At $400 or $500 per license paid annually, it is a very cheap tool."
  • "PortSwigger is reasonably-priced. It's fair."
  • "It has a yearly license. I am satisfied with its price."
  • "We are using the community version, which is free."
  • "It is expensive for us in Brazil because the currency exchange rate from a dollar to a Brazilian Real is quite steep."
  • "The price for the solution is expensive and could be cheaper. We pay an annual license and our team has several of them."
  • "It's a lower priced tool that we can rely on with good standard mechanisms."

  • "The pricing is okay."
