Likelihood to Recommend

Checkmarx

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.

Codacy

Codacy is a great solution for any SaaS company that ships production code. I would say every situation is well suited for it if you care about quality code, catching potential security risks, and having a solid way to measure code test coverage across your stack. May not be as appropriate for a small non-revenue generating project.

Alternatives Considered

Checkmarx

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.

Codacy

Codacy provides a good support mechanism and has very intuitive UI. Even a newbie can understand the details of a code base. The best part is you don't have to manually update everything. Once you have connected the git repository, it will automatically rate the code and updates according to your commits.

Codacy

  • The best part after implementing the tool is that we now stand a benchmark. Our clients are more than happy to have a good quality of code.
  • Increased efficiency, decision making, code reach, privacy, and standards which means it is easily acceptable internationally.
  • Even you enter private information in a piece of code, it automatically asks you to remove any vulnerable information which can harm your privacy.
  • Pricing is a bit high for personal customizations.
