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.

Netsparker

Netsparker is very thorough but can take a very long time to scan a web application. It can also take a long time to learn and configure. Its thoroughness is a very good part of the product but if the application does [not] need this thoroughness it is probably a waste of time to run Netsparker on the website.

Netsparker

  • NetSparker has excellent customer service. When our team had to learn to use it for the first time, we had to communicate directly with NetSparker consultants.
  • NetSparker is very user-friendly. It's UI is organized and keeps all the different scans we have set-up in a very clean visual.
  • Netsparker has a selection of workflows and integration tools that make it useful for keeping all of my teammates on the same page.

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

Netsparker

  • Netsparker Cloud is expensive and restricts the number of website URLs that you are allowed to scan. This restricts us from scanning all of the websites that we create and only allows us to scan a small subset of number of the website we produce.
  • Netsparker is difficult to configure and I often need to open a ticket with support to figure out how to use the product. I have been vulnerability testing websites for over 10 years and I still don't think I really know how to use Netsparker.
  • Netsparker can take a very long time to complete a scan due to the number of items it can scan for. Be certain to reduce the technologies that your scan will be looking at. Also, expect a large website to possibly take over two days to complete. Not something you really want to have happen on a developer checking on some source code.

Netsparker 10.0
Based on 1 answer
NetSparker support is amazing. When first introducing this software to the team, there was a lot of communication going on between Netsparker consultants and our team. They have answered our questions very efficiently and have had consultants come to our department for training. They are open to suggestions for improvements and enhancements as well.

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.

Netsparker

I currently use OWASP ZAP, Burp Suite Professional and Veracode Dynamic Scan. ZAP is very easy to use and the web developers use it regularly. Burp Suite is very customizable as is Netsparker but usually take much less time to scan a website. Both of these tools are programmable and allow me to add special items to a scan when I need it. They are also much better documented. Veracode also has a static code analysis tool that we use much more often then the dynamic analysis tool but we do use both parts of Veracode.
