Combined with Code Compare and running Review Assistant on the TFS server, it provides a good way to share code and comments amount our team. It does everything we need it to do for code reviews and has a reporting tool.

Within our organization it is clear that when a codebase is available, and in a language that Veracode supports, the use of Veracode (with a particular focus to the static scanning platform) is a great suggestion. The depth of information it can provide with respect to security flaws is valuable, with very little setup required from the developers. When a codebase is unavailable, say in the instance of third-party applications for which you are creating extensions or some form of module, then static code scanning is not an option but even then dynamic scanning (DAST) may prove to be helpful, though potentially less so.

Pros
Devart
  • Review Assistant does everything that I was hoping the default Visual Studio reviews would do. The iterations through accept/reject were the key winner.
  • The functionality for code reviews is great, especially the ability to comment on specific lines of code.
  • You don't have to leave the IDE.

  • The pipeline scan is a very fast way to scan code and inform developers if a new flaw is introduced by their pull requests.
  • Upload & Scan provides an in-depth analysis of the codebase, which features like reporting being made easy.
  • SCA Scans help us not only identify the vulnerabilities but also in helping fix them and in identifying if our application is using that part of the vulnerable library or not.
  • Veracode is very easy to integrate into the CI/CD pipelines (especially Jenkins)

Cons
Devart
  • Integration with JIRA is missing.
  • Ability to search, filter and order comments.
  • There is no support for Visual Studio Code.

  • MPT Results should be segmented from DAST/SAST results.
  • MPT Reports should include more information on scoping and testing dates as generally provided by accounting firms conducting similar tests.
  • Vulnerability readouts should not be so hidden in the platform (It shouldn't take as many clicks to get to and view).

At this time, and we just renewed a month ago, I dont see any products out there overall that can offer what Veracode does. Yes, its not cheap by any means, but for the money its the best application security scanning tool out there.

- Almost no setup required and easy to configure - Very easy to use, intuitive UI with integrated analytics and learning portals. - Seamless to review the results, triage them, generate reports. - Security progression of the product/application is tracked via successive scans. - Privileges/Roles nicely fine grained and tightly controlled to let teams "view" only their products.

At this point, it runs well and mostly in a timely fashion. Dynamic scans take days but this may be a config issue still to be resolved.

Overall, Veracode support is helpful, community support is great, and documentation is available for self-service. Our Customer Success Manager is very helpful and reaches out regularly to see if we need assistance. We have not utilized many of the other resources offered by Veracode, however, in the future we would like to leverage secure coding training for our Development teams.

We use it as a SAS service, so really just getting our teams to mold the use of Veracode into their SDLC has been a process of years in the making. It comes down to what your teams are ready and willing to accept and change. Management is key in getting their groups on board with using it regularly. If it doesnt have management backing, your security teams have little to no influence in getting this process off the ground fully.

Microsoft provides a handy feature for code review inside the Visual Studio IDE. Review Assistant, though providing a similar code review user experience, supports work scenarios that are not covered by the Microsoft's IDE. Moreover, the version control systems support is broader in Review Assistant.

Mend.IO formerly WhiteSource software is a product we used prior to Vericode. It did not have all of the capabilities or depth of Vericode. Additionally, Whitesource did not offer automatic scanning as part of their product and there was no Certification program to speak of.

Return on Investment

  • The tool saves a huge amount of time while reviewing the code. Review Assistant supports threaded comments, so team members can discuss code without scheduled meetings.

  • Developers are now realizing that security is there to help them, not just the people saying NO.
  • When setting up Veracode integrations we found that Devs really like their IDEs and Repos. It's like a personal choice. However, as a company, it was unwieldy without devoting people to Veracode integrations to have so many so we had to slime the available IDEs to 3 and Repos to 3, just to be able to set up and maintain the integrations.
  • Veracode is paying for itself (though through a different cost category). Our Development costs are going down and releases are getting quicker and more agile.
