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.

It does have its pros but they are outweighed by the cons. There are better scanners out there. WAS gets stuck at scanning a single page for such a long time that it barely covers any part of the application before reaching the 24-hour limit and concluding testing. It could be also because of the nature of our application, but I would expect dynamic scanners to be a bit smarter than this.

They had a support page within the WAS to report any concerns or seek help. But the UI of that is not smooth. Regardless support staff were pretty responsive and helpful. They scheduled calls to understand and address our problems. Email support is good 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.

The Qualys Web Application Scanning (WAS) is integrated with our Qualys Cloud Platform so that we can have all the vulnerabilities in one single place. Also, the reporting capabilities of the Qualys Web Application Scanning (WAS) is way higher than any other vulnerability management tool in the market (especially in terms of compliance reports, such as PCI and SOX).
