Scooter Software
Beyond Compare is extremely good at the task of comparisons, whether that is text file comparisons or folder comparisons. It does a great job of easily highlighting the differences for users, and giving them the option of merging (in the case of text files) or synchronizing (in the case of folders.) In either case, no one on my team has ever had any reason to reach for another different tool.

Veracode is good at identifying flaws that does not adhere to the OWASP top 10 security controls. Therefore, a Junior developer could produce code and flaws will be caught. There is also the software composition analysis that provided a view into third-party dependencies. Veracode may not be suited in cases where you need to have your scan results in a short amount of time.

Pros
Scooter Software
  • Folder diffing. It allows you to see differences in deeply nested folder structures.
  • File diffing. It allows you to see differences in files no matter their complexity.
  • Diffing rules. It allows you to set rules to include/exclude files, folders and lines from your comparison.

  • Veracode's static code analysis platform provides in-depth information as well as very useful suggestions regarding mitigation for flaws it discovers. This is very helpful in assisting developers towards a speedy and complete mitigation.
  • Veracode does well to keep connected with their customers, ensuring the success of their customers on their platform is evidently one of their goals which they hold highly. This responsiveness continues into their technical support which is both helpful and fast to respond.
  • Veracode continues to update their platforms, their capabilities, and their research often; the promise of continuous improvement from all facets provides value to us as an organization.

Cons
Scooter Software
  • For date formatting discrepancies the software does not automatically mark the dates as equivalent; for instance ‘2019/10/15’ vs. ‘15-OCT-2019’. This would be considered a difference.
  • The columns/report must be ordered similarly. If extra data is available in one file, it should be removed or extra rows will be marked as differences.
  • For spreadsheet comparison, the user must save the file on the proper tab and then “recompare” within the tool. There is no way to switch between sheets in the software.

  • 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.

Usability
Scooter Software
Again, given the intuitive nature of this program, there is barely any learning curve needed. It is simple, reliable, accurate, and just one of those tools you always have with you and rarely think about until you don't have it. Then it is a case of OMG what was I thinking? This program is just very easy to use, and that makes it more valuable to me than some of my other software tools that cost significantly more.

- 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.

Support Rating
Scooter Software
I have never needed support for this product other than learning how to use a new feature I was not familiar with. User forums and user groups that have used this product for their own purposes have always sufficed for anything that I needed help using with the product. Some of the features could be a little better outlined, but overall very easy to use.

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.

We've tried many: Code Compare, Meld, UltraCompare, and WinMerge. None of them have the depth of features and speed to handle the work we throw at Beyond Compare. The multi-tabbed interface allows us to sync multiple servers at the same time. It understands multiple file types, metadata, and encodings. It's the best tool for the job.

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
Scooter Software
  • It's made it quick and easy to compare and synchronize directories when restoring a backup or copying code from one environment to another one.
  • There are times when it would be a painstaking task to manually compare or sync two different directories, but BeyondCompare made it a trivial task.

  • 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.
