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.

Qualys Cloud Platform

It is well suited for environments that are looking for a solution that is top notch for vulnerability scanning, and is the most accurate at doing so. It would also fit environments that have a lot of endpoints to scan or like to have scanning done on an automatic basis.It is less appropriate in environments that want to use a platform right away, without getting training in how to use it, or reading documentation on the product.

Cons

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.

Qualys Cloud Platform

  • Price tag
  • Have the license based on live IPs, not on entire subnets, so then you pay for the exactly amount of servers you have.

We feel Qualys provides required perimeter security for our infrastructure which is hosted on multiple clouds. Together with a comprehensive scanning and continuous monitoring, Qualys is cloud agnostic which gives us flexibility to use it across multiple clouds. We also like the daily reporting and its integration with other productivity tools.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Qualys Cloud Platform

Qualysguard gave us the tools we needed that were benificial to our job without us having to do too much manual interaction such as with Nmap, Metasploit , etc. It was a very efficient platform that I would go to again.

Return on Investment

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.

Qualys Cloud Platform

  • Provides the business the information needed to prioritize security requirements and secure appropriate budget.
  • Provides self-service capabilities for users to perform their own scans.
  • Provides visibility for asset discovery which was previously a difficult task.
