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.

SonarQube

SonarQube has a friendly UI that is easy to use and understand. The admin's control panel is very good and It's not really difficult to get through the settings. Its possible to build many rules that apply for each programming language, for example, .NET, and Java. You can easily set up rules and even with the community version. It's a great tool but you have to have a good project plan before being introduced to the tools. I would recommend using the SonarQube open-source version to get used to it before purchasing the license. Before we go with an enterprise product, we have to know the terms and how things are done to run software quality

SonarQube

  • Local dashboard wont work without java installed on your machine
  • If talking about the local ui the configuration may be quite complex. Needs an experts advise
  • Its enterprise edition cost a fortune depending on a company size or users that may use it.

We we easily able to integrate the SonarQube steps into our TFS process via the Microsoft Marektplace, we didn't have the need to call SonarQube support. We've used their online documentation and community forum if we ran into any 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.

I personally evaluated klocwork in a previous company and it worked well for Static Code Analysis for C++ applications but the Java support was not as good as SonarQube. Also the overall tooling and integrations provided by SonarQube is stellar and very other competitors can provide such services and IDE integrations.The output results from SonarQube tests can be easily read, including by other services for automation purposes, and creating reports for audits or other teams is nice and easy.
