Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"When we are integrating it with SSC, we're able to scan and trace and see all of the vulnerabilities. Comparison is easy in SSC.""The solution is able to detect a wide range of vulnerabilities. It's better at it than other products.""The solution is easy to use.""The accuracy of its scans is great.""Reporting, centralized dashboard, and bird's eye view of all vulnerabilities are the most valuable features."

More Fortify WebInspect Pros →

"I've tried many open source applications and the remediation or correction actions that were provided by Kiuwan were very good in comparison.""I like that it provides a detailed report that lets you know the risk index and the vulnerability.""The solution offers very good technical support.""I like that I can scan the code without sending it to the Kiuwan cloud. I can do it locally on my device. When the local analyzer finishes, the results display on the dashboard in the cloud. It's essential for security purposes to be able to scan my code locally."

More Kiuwan Pros →

Cons
"It requires improvement in terms of scanning. The application scan heavily utilizes the resources of an on-premise server. 32 GB RAM is very high for an enterprise web application.""The scanner could be better.""Our biggest complaint about this product is that it freezes up, and literally doesn't work for us.""Lately, we've seen more false negatives."

More Fortify WebInspect Cons →

"The solution seems to give us a lot of false positives. This could be improved quite a bit.""The integration process could be improved. It'll also help if it could generate reports automatically. But I'm not sure about the effectiveness of the reports. This is because, in our last project, we still found some key issues that weren't captured by the Kiuwan report.""Kiuwan's support has room for improvement. You can only open a ticket is through email, and the support team is outside of our country. They should have a support number or chat.""The configuration hasn't been that good."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Our licensing is such that you can only run one scan at a time, which is inconvenient."
  • "Its price is almost similar to the price of AppScan. Both of them are very costly. Its price could be reduced because it can be very costly for unlimited IT scans, etc. I'm not sure, but it can go up to $40,000 to $50,000 or more than that."
  • "The price is okay."

  • "It follows a subscription model. I think the price is somewhere in the middle."

    Questions from the Community
    Top Answer:I would like to recommend Checkmarx. With Checkmarx, you are able to have an all in one solution for SAST and SCA as well. Veracode is only a cloud solution. Hope this helps.

    Top Answer:Kiuwan is not as expensive as the other solutions. We pay according to the number of lines of code that have been hired to scan, whether it scans or not. That's the downside.
    Top Answer:Kiuwan should charge based on usage

    Overview

    Fortify WebInspect is an automated DAST solution that helps security professionals and QA testers uncover security vulnerabilities and configuration concerns by providing complete vulnerability detection. This is accomplished by mimicking real-world external security attacks on a live application in order to discover and prioritize concerns for root-cause study. Fortify WebInspect provides a number of REST APIs for easier integration, as well as the ability to be maintained via an intuitive UI or totally automated.

    Fortify WebInspect may be used as a completely automated solution to suit DevOps and scaling requirements, and it integrates seamlessly with the SDLC. REST APIs aid in closer integration by automating scans and ensuring that compliance standards are satisfied. Users can make use of pre-built integrations for Micro Focus Lifecycle Management (ALM) and Quality Center, as well as other security testing and management platforms.

    Teams may reuse current scripts and tools thanks to powerful connectors. Any Selenium script can be simply integrated with Fortify WebInspect. Fortify WebInspect supports Swagger and OData formats via the WISwag command line tool, allowing it to work with any DevOps workflow. A scan template can be pre-configured by ScanCentral Admin and sent to users to scan their apps, with zero security knowledge required.

    Fortify WebInspect Features

    Fortify WebInspect has many valuable key features. Some of the most useful ones include:

    • Security testing of functional applications (FAST): FAST can use all of the functional tests in the same way as IAST does, but it will continue crawling. FAST will not miss anything that a functional test misses.
    • Insights from a hacker's perspective: View discoveries such as client-side frameworks and version number. These are findings that, if not addressed, could lead to vulnerabilities.
    • Workflow macros HAR files: Fortify WebInspect can scan workflows with HAR files, ensuring that crucial content is not missed.
    • Management of compliance: Preconfigured policies and reports for all key online application security compliance regulations, such as PCI DSS, DISA STIG, NIST 800-53, ISO 27K, OWASP, and HIPAA.
    • Horizontal scaling can help you speed up your work: Using Kubernetes, horizontal scaling creates little versions of WebInspect that only process JavaScript. This allows the scans to run in parallel, resulting in significantly faster scans.
    • Scan any API for better accuracy: Get the complete picture on APIs, including SOAP, Rest, Swagger, OpenAPI, and Postman.
    • Managing the security of enterprise applications: To meet DevOps requirements, monitor trends within an application and take action on the most critical issues first.
    • Deployment options: With the flexibility of on-premise, SaaS, or AppSec-as-a-service, you can get started immediately and scale as needed.

    Fortify WebInspect Benefits

    There are many benefits to implementing Fortify WebInspect. Some of the biggest advantages the solution offers include:

    • Vulnerabilities are discovered faster and earlier.
    • Automation and agent technology can help you save time.
    • Users can utilize crawl web technologies and modern frameworks.
    • ScanCentral DAST helps you manage enterprise app security risk.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Fortify WebInspect stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. One major one is its robust centralized dashboard, which gives insight into all vulnerabilities.

    Milin S., an Information Security Architect at a real estate/law firm, writes of the product, “Reporting, centralized dashboard, and bird's eye view of all vulnerabilities are the most valuable features. The vulnerability management part of it is very easy. We can suppress or comment on each vulnerability and assign a vulnerability to an individual risk owner, which makes the work easy.”

    Software analytics technology with a breadth of third party integrations that takes into account the wealth of applications your teams are currently using.

    We facilitate and encourage work between unlocalized teams. We understand the complexity of working on multi technology environments, constantly striving to increase the number of programming languages and technologies we support.
