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.

Microsoft Visual Studio Code

[Microsoft Visual Studio Code] is very flexible and you can code in your preferred language, from C, C++, C# to Visual Basic. It integrates well to third party developed components that make your coding faster. The programs that can be coded using Visual Studio can be run on desktops (Windows Forms), browsers (ASP.NET) or on servers as command line routines. If you are lacking development time and monetary resources to buy components, there maybe other development frameworks that could suit your business better.

Pros

Checkmarx

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

Microsoft Visual Studio Code

  • It is fast and snappy in most cases, unlike IDEs (IntelliJ, Eclipse etc.) that take quite a lot of time to start up and are sluggish even during use (including on high-end Macbook Pros).
  • It provides great and top-notch support for a huge number of languages and web development frameworks. This support is either built-in or provided using first-party (Microsoft) or third-party extensions. E.g. Microsoft provides its own extension for Python, and Golang provides an official Visual Studio Code extension.
  • Microsoft keeps continuously improving Code with new features and performance improvements.

Cons

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

Microsoft Visual Studio Code

  • Similar to all other electron apps, VSCode's memory and battery usage is pretty bad. Better plug in when you use it!
  • No git merging, which many people have come to expect as ST3 and Atom have the ability to do that
  • Default key shortcuts make no sense and I had to reconfigure almost all of them

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.

They seem to have great support for walkthroughs, tutorials, etc on their website. There is also a forum where you can discuss with other users and support staff for issues or feature requests. I've never had to formally request customer service as I've never had any big issues arise. They do make releases pretty frequently which makes me feel like they are ahead of the curve on any major issues that they have found.

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

Microsoft Visual Studio Code is more lightweight than most other options, such as Spyder and MATLAB. These other applications provide strong benefits such as a useful user interface that displays information about variables in in your workspace, as well as a window for built-in plotting. However, they also have longer load times and bog down the user more.Visual Studio code is also free, which is great when you consider how expensive competitors can be. For example, MATLAB has a base cost and then requires that you pay for add-on toolboxes (e.g. The Signal Processing, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning toolboxes will cost you thousands of dollars). You can use free packages in Python with Visual Studio Code to have the same functionality.

Return on Investment

Checkmarx

  • Improved ability to provide high level of IA confidence
  • Improved confidence in application-level security

Microsoft Visual Studio Code

  • We saw an immediate productivity boost moving to VS Code from VS working on our Single Page Applications, especially our Angular apps.
  • VS Code also gave us a much better environment from some of the simpler editors we tried, like Notepad++. The plug-in architecture provides a lot of power that we took advantage of.
  • VS Code has some very nice integrations with Azure if you use the Azure ecosystem.
