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.

Microsoft Visual Studio Code

As per my experience to improve the productivity of UI applications it is one of the best tools as it is lightweight and very fast plus it supports all the web technology stuff like HTML, CSS, SCSS, Less, JavaScript, TypeScript, and JSON. We can open more than one instance of it without any without even performing the overall system performance as it takes very less memory in RAM. Quickly opens and closes without annoying users to wait for it.

Pros

Checkmarx

  • Supports a large number of languages
  • Finds a large variety of potential risks
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Visual Studio Code

  • Code analysis of applications or systems already implemented is of great help to detect syntax errors or functions that are obsolete
  • The automatic linking of functions or procedures installed in programming blocks is fantastic, since we must not remember the address or the name of the file where the definition of the function or procedure is.
  • The customization of the entire environment provides accelerated productivity by being able to choose the extensions or plugins that best suit our development pace

Cons

Checkmarx

  • Scan duration
  • False positives
  • Integration with other tools like Jenkins comes with some inconveniences.

Microsoft Visual Studio Code

  • Lack of button bar like ones found in Visual Studio.
  • Lack of integrated help that could link to YouTube, Channel 9, or other Microsoft videos on how to learn about features.
  • Integration with Team Foundation Server.
  • Would like to see it having some sort of integration into a Web API testing harness.

Solid tool that provides everything you need to develop most types of applications. The only reason not a 10 is that if you are doing large distributed teams on Enterprise level, Professional does provide more tools to support that and would be worth the cost.

This is a tool for programmers and it works like many others. If you are in the development world already then you will be sailing in no time with Microsoft Visual Studio Code. It is also great for new developers and it is very easy to use and you can get all the tools you need in one place as you begin to learn.

Active development means filing a bug on the GitHub repo typically gets you a response within 4 days.There are plugins for almost everything you need, whether it be linting, Vim emulation, even language servers (which I use to code in Scala).There is well-maintained official documentation.The only thing missing is forums. The closest thing is GitHub issues, which typically has the answers but is hard to sift through -- there are currently 78k issues.

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.

Microsoft Visual Studio Code

When you start using [Microsoft Visual Studio Code], it lands more on the "text editor" side of the spectrum, akin to Vim/Emacs/Sublime. Aligned with this, it's fast and easy to install and setup, and competes with the best of them as a great general purpose tool. But then it surpasses that group with its huge ecosystem of extensions, which provide strong integrations for most coding platforms and build environments-- in this way, it stretches (as needed) into being a full-featured IDE. But then unlike the "big" IDEs, as it grows it retains is super fast startup time and ease of use-- it doesn't get bogged down.
Even in an environment where there is a large IDE platform in use, VSCode is a complementary tool that fits in and nicely handles the plethora of files and code types that your main IDE isn't specialized in.
