CAST
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.

Veracode
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.

  • 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
CAST
  • 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.

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.

- 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.

Alternatives Considered
CAST
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.

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
CAST
  • 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.

  • 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.
