Sophos for Virtual Environments

For our small and medium-sized businesses Sophos Virtualization Security has been a perfect fit. I barely recognize it is even in place as an end user, and as a manager my team never complains - it just works and works very well.If you want an easy to use and seamless solution, this is it.

Well Suited
  • Well suited for modern programming languages
  • Super good for organisations which do not have a big IT budget to spend on infrastructure
  • Veracode Security consultation is invaluable for teams/Business Units which do not have a dedicated security team
  • These culminate and make it ideal for a startup to quickly benefit from Veracode's setup leanness to get going on Security scanning
Less Appropriate
  • For scanning large legacy applications/software (huge code base, multiple platforms to build, platform specific languages used)

Pros

Sophos for Virtual Environments

  • Antivirus is old hat for Sophos - we haven't had a single breach since its implementation
  • Managing and deploying Sophos was very seamless
  • Its non-intrusive nature to the end user has been better than any of our prior options.

Veracode

  • The tool seems to have been build for automation.
  • As a security engineer, I prefer the types of findings discovered through DAST or IAST since I can easily verify findings, but the SAST findings may be easier for the developers since it points to the area of code.
  • While it's hard to get developers to take advantage of the consultation calls, I like the fact we can get a highly technical person to walk us through any type of Veracode question.

Cons

Sophos for Virtual Environments

  • Instead of automatically installing our previous solution, we had to manually do it, but it may have been that solution that caused the issue.
Jon Shurtliff | TrustRadius Reviewer

  • Although an improvement to what was there previously, the Analytics section using Looker, could still use some improvement. It does seem that what Veracode has deployed is a very limited version of Looker. While helpful and useful, there seems to be so much more that Looker does (such as dynamic querying), however, the version that Veracode employs doesn't seem to offer this.
  • More user control of administrative functions such as user adding/deleting. Veracode still uses a 'soft delete'/'hard delete' functionality. This can become cumbersome for self-user-administration when a deleted user has to be re-added. A support call is then necessary to have this done.
  • Their idle timeout process needs work. While using the Looker tool, you must save your work every few minutes, as their 'Shark-attack-like' idle timeout will sneak up on you and redirect you away in an instant causing you to lose any unsaved work.

This used to be terrible. Had a difficult time figuring out where information was. Partly this was due to duplicative features, jargon labels, and user navigation. However, in the seven years I've been using the product, it has gotten better.Some of my issues were associated with trying to get scans to work unassisted. Now that scans, once set up, just run periodically, I don't have to deal with that as much. Part of this might also be that I've learned what I need to know about getting around. And still part of this assessment is in comparison to other tools out there that are even worse. Still, they could benefit from an investment in a full useability redesign from someone with an outside perspective, modernizing the UX but also studying and working through the bigger usability concerns. I would love to see better diagnostic tools around getting scans to work so I wouldn't need their tech support people to get scans to work. However, as long as the scheduler keeps going, my needs on this get ever rarer.

Veracode Support has been great. Any time I have had a question, they have responded in a prompt manner. I'd say nine out of ten times they are able to resolve any issues that have come up with a short email exchange. For issues requiring a bit more investigation, their consultants are tops.

Alternatives Considered

Sophos for Virtual Environments

Sophos Virtualization Security has the brand recognition and the customer support that really sold us on the solution. The pricing was also very competetive and Sophos came highly suggested from our vendor and references.

Have also evaluated services by GitHub and Snyk. I will say that we continue to use Veracode because of its brand recognition and vendor status in the financial services industry. However if my current company was not operating in this industry I would be tempted to use the less-expensive security analysis services provided by GitHub and Snyk.

Return on Investment

Sophos for Virtual Environments

  • Security is like life insurance - you can spend as much as you want and still not be fully covered... but with Sophos, you don't have to overly spend to feel covered.
Jon Shurtliff | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veracode

  • As I already stated, the cost per application is very high which makes the use of Veracode too expensive for many of out applications.
  • The analysis report is accepted by our clients as a proper SSAT report.
  • Most of out competition does not perform any type of SSAT on the applications they create. This is something we offer and be the only one out there doing this type of testing.
