It is well suited in cases where you wanna share reports with people that do not have a lot of knowledge in security concepts. It would help as the report has elaborate content explaining the issues and fix recommendations. If you want a SAST tool that gives fewer false positives, there are better options compared to Checkmarx. In cases where you want to do SAST scans regularly and quickly, Checkmarx may hold you back with its high count of false positives and lengthy reports.

We actually use Checkmarx along with the other tools. However, the reason we chose Checkmarx is its wide support for languages and useful fix recommendations. The flowcharts help better understand the data flow and give a clear picture of what needs to be fixed and how. Also, developers can make a note of what should be avoided in the future. Overall, it's a great tool and would be a good investment to make.
