Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Veracode is a valuable tool in our secure SDLC process.""One of the features they have is Software Composition Analysis. When organizations use third-party, open source libraries with their application development, because they're open source they quite often have a lot of bugs. There are always patches coming out for those open source applications. You really have to stay on your toes and keep up with any third-party libraries that might be integrated into your application. Veracode's Software Composition Analysis scans those libraries and we find that very valuable.""Integrations into our developer's IDE (Greenlight) and the DevOps Pipeline SAST / SourceClear Integrations has particularly increased our time to market and confidence.""Good static analysis and dynamic analysis.""There are quite a few features that are very reliable, like the newly launched Veracode Pipelines Scan, which is pretty awesome. It supports the synchronous pipeline pretty well. We been using it out of the Jira plugin, and that is fantastic.""The visibility into application status helps reduce risk exposure for our software. Today, any findings provided by the DAST are reviewed by the developers and we have internal processes in place to correct those findings before there can be a release. So it absolutely does prevent us from releasing weak code.""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.""My experience with Veracode across the board every time, in all products, the technology, the product, the service, and the salespeople is fabulous."

"It is an easy tool that you can deploy and configure. After that you can measure the history of your obligation and integrate it with other tools like GitLab or GitHub or Azure DevOps to do quality code analysis.""The fact that the solution does security scanning is valuable.""The most valuable features are the dashboard, the ability to drill down to the code, user-friendly, and the technical debt estimation.""SonarQube is designed well making it easy to use, simple to identify issues and find solutions to problems.""I am only interested in the security features in SonarQube. There are plenty of features other features, such as test coverage, code anomalies, and pointer access are handled by the business logic teams. They get the reports and they have to fix them in JIRA or Bugzilla.""It provides the security that is required from a solution for financial businesses.""Apart from the security point of view, I like that it makes it easy to detect code smells and other issues in terms of code quality and standards.""It helps our developers work more efficiently as we can identify things in a code prior to it being pushed to where it needs to go."

"The most valuable feature is the reporting, which provides a good level of detail with respect to vulnerabilities.""Tenable.io Web Application Scanning is very easy to use.""Our customers adopt this solution because of the replication testing and the vulnerability assessment it can do. It is a multi-faceted product."

Cons
"One feature I would like would be more selectivity in email alerts. While I like getting these, I would like to be able to be more granular in which ones I receive.""Sometimes, I get feedback from a developer saying, "They are scanning a Python code, but getting feedback around Java code." While the remediation and guidelines are there, improvement is still required, e.g., you won't get the exact guidelines, but you can get some sort of a high-level insights.""The product has issues with scanning.""I think for us the biggest improvement would be to have an indicator when there's something wrong with a scan.""I would ask Veracode to be a lot more engaged with the customer and set up live sessions where they force the customer to engage with Veracode's technical team. Veracode could show them a repo, how they should do things, this is what these results mean, here is a dashboard, here's the interpretation, here's where you find the results.""The pricing for qualified startups such as Neo4j could be improved.""The solution could improve the Dynamic Analysis Security Testing(DAST).""Another problem we have is that, while it is integrated with single sign-on—we are using Okta—the user interface is not great. That's especially true for a permanent link of a report of a page. If you access it, it goes to the normal login page that has nothing that says "Log in with single sign-on," unlike other software as a service that we use. It's quite bothersome because it means that we have to go to the Okta dashboard, find the Veracode link, and log in through it. Only at that point can we go to the permanent link of the page we wanted to access."

More Veracode Cons →

"Technical support and the price could be better.""Monitoring is a feature that can be improved in the next version.""SonarQube's detail in the security could be improved. It may be helpful to have additional details, with regards to Oracle PL/SQL. For example, it's neither as built nor as thorough as Java. For now, this is the only additional feature I would like to see.""In terms of what can be improved, the areas that need more attention in the solution are its architecture and development.""I am not very pleased with the technical debt computation.""In the next release, I would like to have notifications because now, it is a bit difficult. I think that's a feature which we could add there and it would benefit the users as well. For every full request, they should be able to see their bugs or vulnerability directly on the surface.""The pricing could be reduced a bit. It's a little expensive.""Their dashboarding is very limited. They can improve their dashboards for multiple areas, such as security review, maintainability, etc. They have all this information, so they should publish all this information on the dashboard so that the users can view the summary and then analyze it further. This is something that I would like to see in the next version."

More SonarQube Cons →

"It would be great if there were a dashboard that is more user-friendly.""The reporting has a very limited customization capability.""I would like for them to add proxy filtering, where you can transfer and alter the package. It is fully automated. Other web application testers programs are actually proxy software, and the proxy software gives you the flexibility of modifying the outgoing package, which will actually help you in exploiting any vulnerability in detail."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "For the value we get out of it, coupled with the live defect review sessions, we find it an effective value for the money. We are a larger organization."
  • "I don't really know about the pricing, but I'd say it's worth whatever Veracode is charging, because the solution is that good."
  • "Veracode's price is high. I would like them to better optimize their pricing."
  • "If I compare the pricing with other software tools, then it is quite competitive. Whatever the price is, they have always given us a good discount."
  • "Veracode is expensive. Some of its products are expensive. I don't think it's way more expensive than its competitors. The dynamic is definitely worth it, as I think it's cheaper than the competitors. The static scan is a little bit more expensive, around 20 percent more expensive. The manual pen test is more expensive, but it is an expensive service because it's a manual pen test and we also do retests. I don't think it is way more expensive than the competitors, but it's about 15 to 20 percent more expensive."
  • "We use this product per project rather than per developer... Your development model will really determine what the best fit is for you in terms of licensing, because of the project-based licensing. If you do a few projects, that's more attractive. If you have a large number of developers, that would also make the product a little more attractive."
  • "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."

  • "I was using the Community Edition, which is available free of charge."
  • "The developer edition is based on cost per lines of code."
  • "We are using the open-source version, which is available free of cost."
  • "There is both a free and licensed version. The free version has limitations on development languages and support."
  • "For the Community edition, there is no extra cost. It's totally free. The Enterprise edition, Data Center edition, and Developer edition are the paid versions."
  • "We are using the open-source community version, but there are enterprise licenses available."
  • "SonarQube is an open-source product that can be used free of charge."
  • "I am satisfied with the pricing."

  • "The pricing is okay."
  • "It follows the same licensing scheme as Tenable.io and Tenable. sc."
