Pros
"Good reporting functionalities."

More JFrog Xray Pros →

"WhiteSource is unique in the scanning of open-source licenses. Additionally, the vulnerabilities aspect of the solution is a benefit. We don't use WhiteSource in the whole organization, but we use it for some projects. There we receive a sense of the vulnerabilities of the open-source components, which improves our security work. The reports are automated which is useful.""The solution boasts a broad range of features and covers much of what an ideal SCA tool should.""The license management of WhiteSource was at a good level. As compared to other tools that I have used, its functionality for the licenses for the code libraries was quite good. Its UI was also fine.""We set the solution up and enabled it and we had everything running pretty quickly.""Its ease of use and good results are the most valuable.""WhiteSource helped reduce our mean time to resolution since the adoption of the product.""We use a lot of open sources with a variety of containers, and the different open sources come with different licenses. Some come with dual licenses, some are risky and some are not. All our three use cases are equally important to us and we found WhiteSource handles them decently.""I am the organizational deployment administrator for this tool, and I, along with other users in our company, especially the security team, appreciate the solution for several reasons. The UI is excellent, and scanning for security threats fits well into our workflow."

Cons
"Lacks deeper reporting, the ability to compare things."

More JFrog Xray Cons →

"It should support multiple SBOM formats to be able to integrate with old industry standards.""The only thing that I don't find support for on Mend Prioritize is C++.""They're working on a UI refresh. That's probably been one of the pain points for us as it feels like a really old application.""Mend supports most of the common package managers, but it doesn't support some that we use. I would appreciate it if they can quickly make these changes to add new package managers when necessary.""The initial setup could be simplified.""I would like to see the static analysis included with the open-source version.""It would be good if it can do dynamic code analysis. It is not necessarily in that space, but it can do more because we have too many tools. Their partner relationship support is a little bit confusing. They haven't really streamlined the support process when we buy through a reseller. They should improve their process.""The solution lacks the code snippet part."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "The solution involves a yearly licensing fee."
  • "As we were using an SaaS-based service, the solution must be scalable, although my understanding is that this is based on the licensing model one is using."
  • "WhiteSource is much more affordable than Veracode."
  • "This is an expensive solution."
  • "When comparing the price of WhiteSource to the competition it is priced well. The cost for 50 users is approximately $18,000 annually."
  • "Its pricing model is per developer. It depends on the number of developers in the company. The license is for a minimum of 20 developers. So, even if you are a small startup with less than 10 developers, you have to buy a license for 20 developers on a yearly subscription, which makes it quite expensive for startup customers. I provide consultation to startup accelerators. They're small at the beginning, and only once they grow to 20 developers, they can afford this tool. As a result, WhiteSource is missing this target audience. Their licensing is not flexible."
  • "We always negotiate for the best price possible, and as far as I know, Mend has done an excellent job with their pricing. Our management is happy with the pricing, which has led to renewals."
  • "Pricing and licensing are comparable to other tools. When we started, it was less than our existing solution. I can't go into specifics, but it isn't cheap."
