We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"There is a single area on the dashboard where you can get a full view of all of the tests and the results from everything. There is a nice, very simple graphic that shows you the types of vulnerabilities that were found, their severity, the scoring, and in what part of the code they were found. All the details are together in one place.""The main feature that I have found valuable is the solution's ability to find issues in static analysis. Additionally, there are plenty of useful tools.""The findings of their security analysis are wonderful. You can easily go through all the analyses done by Veracode. You can see what are the flaws and what could be the best possible resolution to minimize those flaws in the application. When an application is being used by the public, security is a challenge. Veracode helps us to analyze all the security flaws, discrepancies, and vulnerabilities inside the application. It provides good reports.""Good static analysis and dynamic analysis.""It is SaaS hosted. That makes it very convenient to use. There is no initial time needed to set up an application. Scanning is a matter of minutes. You just log in, create an application profile, associate a security configuration, and that's about it. It takes 10 minutes to start. The lack of initial lead time or initial overhead to get going is the primary advantage.""The dynamic scanning tool is what I like the best. Compared to other tools that I've used for dynamic scanning, it's much faster and easier to use.""The time savings has been tremendous. We saw ROI in the first six months.""It is easy to use for us developers. It supports so many languages: C#, .NET Core, .NET Framework, and it even scans some of our JavaScript. You just need the extension to upload the files and the reports are generated with so much detail."

"Acunetix is the best service in the world. It is easy to manage. It gives a lot of information to the users to see and identify problems in their site or applications. It works very well.""The most valuable feature of Acunetix is the UI and the scan results are simple.""Overall, it's a very good tool and a very good engine.""The most valuable feature of the solution is the speed at which it can scan multiple domains in just a few hours.""There is a lot of documentation on their website which makes setting it up and using it quite simple."

"The most valuable features of Tenable.io Web Application Scanning are the integration into specific use cases and scanning. All of the features of the solution are useful.""Tenable provides the end analysis results covering all the published vulnerabilities and information on the market.""Tenable.io Web Application Scanning is very easy to use.""The solution is stable.""It collects the vulnerabilities on the hostnames and sends them to the Tenable.io cloud. Tenable has its own cloud where Tenable.io is running, but there are many connectors to other cloud solutions. Tenable can do vulnerability scanning for other cloud managers such as Azure, Amazon, and so on.""It is fully automated."

Cons
"The UI could be better. Also, there are some scenarios where there is no security flaw, but the report indicates that there is a security flaw. The report is not perfectly accurate. So, the accuracy of the scanning reports needs improvement.""I think if they could improve the operations around accepted vulnerabilities, we would see improvements in our productivity.""The pricing for qualified startups such as Neo4j could be improved.""The product has issues with scanning.""Sometimes the scans are not done quickly, but the solutions that it provides are really good. The quality is high, but the analysis is not done extremely quickly.""There is much to be desired of UI and user experience. The UI is very slow. With every click, it just takes a lot of time for the pages to load. We have seen this consistently since getting this solution. The UI and UX are very disjointed.""The reports on offer are too verbose.""When it comes to the speed of the pipeline scan, one of the things we have found with Veracode is that it's very fast with Java-based applications but a bit slow with C/C++ based applications. So we have implemented the pipeline scan only for Java-based applications not for the C/C++ applications."

More Veracode Cons →

"The solution can be improved by adding the ability to scan subdomains automatically, and by providing reports that can be exported to external databases to share with other solutions.""The only problem that they have is the price. It is a bit expensive, and you cannot change the number of applications for the whole year.""The pricing is a bit on the higher side.""There are some versions of the solution that are not as stable as others.""While we do have it integrated with other solutions, it could still offer more integrations."

More Acunetix Cons →

"The dashboard could be more user-friendly.""The reporting has a very limited customization capability.""They have a general dashboard for web application scanning, but the dashboards and reporting can be improved. They probably have some features in their roadmap.""It isn't easy to manage vulnerabilities in Tenable.""Tenable.io Web Application Scanning could improve by offering faster fuzzing.""The report customization needs to be better."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The pricing is really fair compared to a lot of other tools on the market."
  • "It is very reasonably priced compared to what we were paying our previous vendor. For the same price, we are getting much more value and reducing our AppSec costs from 40 to 50 percent."
  • "Veracode is one of the more expensive solutions in the market, but it is worth the expense because of the eLearning and the security consultations; everything is included in the license."
  • "Licensing cost is on a yearly basis and there are no additional costs, the pricing is straightforward."
  • "From a cost perspective, it seems okay, although we will probably evaluate alternatives next time it's up for renewal because for us, it's a relatively high cost, and we want to make sure that we are using our resources most appropriately."
  • "The pricing is a little on the high side but since we combine our product into one suite, it is easy to do and works well for us."
  • "It is quite good. If you adapt it for the whole organization, it is quite affordable. The pricing plans are good as compared to the other competitors, and any small, medium, or big company can easily adopt Veracode. Its cost includes deployment, training, and support for one year."
  • More Veracode Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "It is a bit expensive. If you need to check five applications, you have to pay almost 14,000. It is an agreement for two years at 7,000 per year for only five applications. You cannot change the applications in the license. So, you are stuck with the same license for the five applications for one full year."
  • "The cost is based on two types of licenses, ConsultLite, and ConsultPlus, as well as the number of domains that are scanned."
  • More Acunetix Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "It follows the same licensing scheme as Tenable.io and Tenable. sc."
  • "The price of the solution is reasonable compared to the competitors. The license cost is based on the number of users and the annual usage."
