Chose Veracode
Acunetix was too difficult to set up and some features were useless for our product. The results weren't clear, so definitely Veracode is better than Acunetix. We use WhiteSource because the level of detail is much better than Veracode. We didn't choose Veracode over them but …
Chose Veracode
Veracode was brought in to supplement services previously provided by other vendors. As our org recently acquired another organization, we identified Veracode as a 'go-forward' system needed to consolidate security tooling in the organization.
Chose Veracode
Veracode is an all-in-one solution, whereas the others have various tools, but not an all-encompassing solution.
Chose Veracode
1. We need only a few features and detailed reporting for static analysis. Veracode is enough to suit that need.
2. We have not used other products since 2013. So Veracode became de-facto standard for us.

Invicti Security
It is best suited for integrated security testing of applications which are hosted on web servers. The most important thing is the integration of DevSecOps which is crucial in today's fast paced environment of rapid development. The core of Acunetix is application scanning which is really great and I highly recommend this product to everyone

Within our organization it is clear that when a codebase is available, and in a language that Veracode supports, the use of Veracode (with a particular focus to the static scanning platform) is a great suggestion. The depth of information it can provide with respect to security flaws is valuable, with very little setup required from the developers. When a codebase is unavailable, say in the instance of third-party applications for which you are creating extensions or some form of module, then static code scanning is not an option but even then dynamic scanning (DAST) may prove to be helpful, though potentially less so.

Veracode
  • The pipeline scan is a very fast way to scan code and inform developers if a new flaw is introduced by their pull requests.
  • Upload & Scan provides an in-depth analysis of the codebase, which features like reporting being made easy.
  • SCA Scans help us not only identify the vulnerabilities but also in helping fix them and in identifying if our application is using that part of the vulnerable library or not.
  • Veracode is very easy to integrate into the CI/CD pipelines (especially Jenkins)

Cons
Invicti Security
  • Configuration of DevSecOps can be improved for ease
  • Dashboard can have API integration
  • Broaden the scope of vulnerabilities

Veracode
  • MPT Results should be segmented from DAST/SAST results.
  • MPT Reports should include more information on scoping and testing dates as generally provided by accounting firms conducting similar tests.
  • Vulnerability readouts should not be so hidden in the platform (It shouldn't take as many clicks to get to and view).

At this time, and we just renewed a month ago, I dont see any products out there overall that can offer what Veracode does. Yes, its not cheap by any means, but for the money its the best application security scanning tool out there.

Veracode
- Almost no setup required and easy to configure - Very easy to use, intuitive UI with integrated analytics and learning portals. - Seamless to review the results, triage them, generate reports. - Security progression of the product/application is tracked via successive scans. - Privileges/Roles nicely fine grained and tightly controlled to let teams "view" only their products.

At this point, it runs well and mostly in a timely fashion. Dynamic scans take days but this may be a config issue still to be resolved.

Overall, Veracode support is helpful, community support is great, and documentation is available for self-service. Our Customer Success Manager is very helpful and reaches out regularly to see if we need assistance. We have not utilized many of the other resources offered by Veracode, however, in the future we would like to leverage secure coding training for our Development teams.

We use it as a SAS service, so really just getting our teams to mold the use of Veracode into their SDLC has been a process of years in the making. It comes down to what your teams are ready and willing to accept and change. Management is key in getting their groups on board with using it regularly. If it doesnt have management backing, your security teams have little to no influence in getting this process off the ground fully.

ZAP is a free tool, and adequate. But it is to that extent less friendly. I would not be as confident of the results and it definitely can't produce reports on par with Acunetix. There would be a lot of legwork on our end if we desired to switch to this tool.

Mend.IO formerly WhiteSource software is a product we used prior to Vericode. It did not have all of the capabilities or depth of Vericode. Additionally, Whitesource did not offer automatic scanning as part of their product and there was no Certification program to speak of.

Return on Investment
Invicti Security
  • 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.

  • Developers are now realizing that security is there to help them, not just the people saying NO.
  • When setting up Veracode integrations we found that Devs really like their IDEs and Repos. It's like a personal choice. However, as a company, it was unwieldy without devoting people to Veracode integrations to have so many so we had to slime the available IDEs to 3 and Repos to 3, just to be able to set up and maintain the integrations.
  • Veracode is paying for itself (though through a different cost category). Our Development costs are going down and releases are getting quicker and more agile.
