Likelihood to Recommend

Acunetix

It is suited well for ad-hoc and scheduled application vulnerability scans. You must review the results to manually filter out false-positives. You must always keep in mind that this is only a vulnerability scan. It can only find a certain class of vulnerabilities, and it can only do that so well. You should definitely not rely on this tool alone for identifying problems. That being said, I have used it along with every other major commercial vulnerability scanner and find it to the best overall ROI compared to more expensive commercial scanners that don't necessarily give you a better user experience or better vulnerability results. I rarely need support from the vendor, but when I do, they have been responsive and able to solve the issue quickly.

SonarQube

SonarQube has been well suited for us when new devleopers start working on our projects. With SonarQube checking code smells and our custom coding stardards, new developers write better code with less errors as outlined by our development standards.It is also very handy to have SonarQube built right into our continuous integration process. Doing it this way results in having less worry around whether our coding standards have been followed. They are automatically applied before code is checked in.

Cons

Acunetix

  • Does not support multiple endpoints well (e.g. apps and services that do not reside at the same URL).
  • Has authentication problems with modern enterprise apps which involve a lot of redirects to unrelated endpoints, federated IDs, SSO, etc. This is related to the first point.
  • The vulnerability detection capability is not as robust as Burp Suite Pro + extensions, Metasploit + auxiliary modules, Nmap + scripts, etc.

SonarQube

  • Have a way to ignore the issues that the team decides not to fix.

SonarQube 9.0

We we easily able to integrate the SonarQube steps into our TFS process via the Microsoft Marektplace, we didn't have the need to call SonarQube support. We've used their online documentation and community forum if we ran into any issues.

Alternatives Considered

Acunetix

Every year, we re-evaluate the tools we are using and licensing. We balance the ever-changing vendor licensing-models, costs, tool features/usability, etc. For the last few years, this has been the best overall commercial tool for our specific use case. However, this is only one of many tools that we use and need.

SonarQube

Gitlab, if you have the right license, ships with a static analysis tool. It integrates better with Gitlab, but didn't seem to have the same quality output that Sonarqube did. Sonarqube's community version is plenty suitable for day to day analysis operations.

Return on Investment

Acunetix

  • Saved money compared to other commercial scanners, especially over the long run.
  • Scan speed seems to be pretty good compared to some of the bulkier commercial products out there. However, that largely has to do with proper configuration.
  • A downside is that is requires a bit of extra work just to get it set up to scan APIs, web services, etc.

SonarQube

  • It became easy to identify the bugs and issue generation.
  • It is open source thus saving money.
  • Enhances the code quality and standard.
