Perforce Software
While Perforce Helix is the best version control software out there, it can also be used to track your documentation, training videos and materials, and requirements. If you have strict compliance requirements, it can be used to ensure that those requirements are satisfied. Perforce Helix is incredibly flexible and can meet the needs of individual users as well as companies with thousands of users.

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
Perforce Software
  • The branching mechanisms in Perforce allow for an enormous codebase to be duplicated into release versions weekly with little impact upon things such as the speed of queries against the version control.
  • Action triggers permit such things as automated builds of software versions, dynamic messaging when issues are identified either within or prior to a build process, and much more.
  • Locking provides the ability to prevent modifications of stable, tested versions in order to ensure validity when they are released.

  • 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
Perforce Software
  • Perforce tends to feel backwards in how it approaches certain tasks, like branching and integrating - even once you figure out how it wants you to perform these tasks, you will likely forget when it comes around to the next time you need to do them again.
  • Perforce has a higher price tag, comparatively.
  • Perforce make some tasks very easy, and yet other tasks very difficult - it doesn't always seem to have found its target user's proficiency.

  • 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).

We are fully committed to our use of Perforce. It works well within our organization and our desire to share our code base with our customers. Their support staff are responsive, inquisitive, and eager to improve their software. I feel like we have a direct line to their design/feature team as they often solicit our feedback.

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.

Usability
Perforce Software
With Perforce Helix, you can use it via the command line, via P4V, or any of the other APIs included with the product. It is extremely easy for new users to get up and running. Users of Perforce Helix only have to pull in the files of interest to them. Also, Perforce is very easy to script and integrate into your CI/CD pipeline. Streams allows you to have pinpoint control of your workflow, and P4Search is the absolute best--I wish Perforce (the company) would talk more about this. It is absolutely fabulous!

- 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.

Reliability and Availability
Perforce Software
In our large environment, Perforce is rarely "down". We have regular maintenance windows and from time to time Perforce can feel a little slow, but its always available. Tech support has always worked with our engineers and IT department to make sure that any real performance or stability issues are addressed quickly.

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.

Support Rating
Perforce Software
I had two representatives from Perforce contact me after downloading it but never responded when I had questions. I also had a difficult time finding good training material for getting started. There is a lot of available support material when running into issues, though, because of how many large companies use it.

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.

Implementation Rating
Perforce Software
This rating is related to setting up an environment from an existing Perforce repository. Initial setup of Perforce as the repository for the company was done by a separate team long prior to my inception.

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.

Git is great, I love Git. But it's not great for dealing with binary assets, even when using Git LFS. Locking is not as simple as on perforce. Git presents some problems on using for non-tech people it can get overwhelming and tech people have to come by and help.

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
Perforce Software
  • Decreased our implementation costs by allowing versioning and back out of customizations made in the field.
  • saves developers time through automation of changes between branches - they think less of the plumbing and have more time to write code.
  • Downside is training/managing expectations of new developers who come in assuming they will use Git.

  • 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.
