Avatao

Avatao is an excellent tool for learning about secure coding and IT security in general. It can help you gain a lot of useful knowledge without feeling like it's a chore. The tutorials and challenges cover a lot of topics, at various difficulty levels. The UI looks nice and it's also user-friendly.

CAST Highlight

I think CAST is a great tool to give insight into your applications. The tool can be met with resistance from team members as the tool is going to expose defects that should be addressed. Out of the box, it may need some tailoring to focus on certain areas so that you are not overwhelmed with defects the first time you scan your code. But ultimately, you will want to eliminate all defects in the code and have all violations turned on.

Cons

Avatao

  • They could implement Ruby in the exercises.

CAST Highlight

  • Code scans could be faster. A large application may need to be broken down into smaller sub-applications in order to facilitate faster code scans.
  • We spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to best structure our code base in the application for ultimate performance.

Alternatives Considered

Avatao

What makes Avatao more valuable is the hands-on practices in an easy-to-use web-based environment.

CAST Highlight

These other tools only do a part of what CAST does. CAST gives a comprehensive view into the code looking at all aspects, code quality, security, maintainability, vulnerability, privacy, reuse, etc. These other tools only focus on one or two dimensions.

Return on Investment

Avatao

  • I apply the knowledge gained on the Avatao platform every day, as I ensure that our systems are secure.

CAST Highlight

  • I believe once we had the tool working for our code base, we immediately saw positive ROI.
  • We spent some time getting to where our code code be scanned efficiently but some of that was trying to do things ourselves instead of fully utilizing Cast Professional Services. I highly recommend to do an engagement with CAST to have them help setup the tool in your environment or to run it in the cloud for you.
