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.

Nessus

Nessus is well suited for performing vulnerability assessments on small and medium scale applications. Its best suited for internal applications within a firm to find its security gaps.Not well suited for large, global applications. Better tools than Nessus are available in the market, which can do the job faster and better. Since large data sets boil the tool down to very slow pace testing, it is not well suited for enormous applications.

  • Starting with the cost of Nessus, though it is available for free also it has some restrictions for the free version. Nessus essential which is a free version does not allow to perform internal/external PCI scan policies, config audits which I think is a drawback. As many security researchers, small organizations use this tool for vulnerability scans I think some additional features should be added into free version as Nessus professional version is not cost-friendly for everyone.
  • I think Nessus can improve the way it shows scan status while the scan is ongoing. Once scans are started and running, it sometimes failed to show exactly how much percent of scan is completed, for example, it shows scan status from 0% completed to 100% completed directly without showing the in-between completion percentage.

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.
