Micro Focus Fortify on Demand Primary Use Case

DV
Senior System Analyst at Azurian

We create technology solutions for clients and on one project we were requested to use Fortify on Demand after the client had read a good report about it. They sent us the report and recommended its use.

In this case, we were using Java to program the client's solution and so we used Fortify on Demand alongside our Java development operations, for the purpose of improving the application's security.

The work we were doing for the client involved creating a billing system that they would use to manage payments and taxes for other companies in Chile. We've only used Fortify on Demand for this one client so far. 

Because Fortify on Demand was so new to us, we decided to go with the trial version first and figure out the costing at a later stage.

All in-house developed code or a third-party developed code on our behalf is scanned via Fortify on Demand. Any results for unsecure code, vulnerabilities, or issues are passed back to the development teams for remediation.

Executive Manager at PepsiCo

Whenever we have a new application we scan it using Micro Focus Fortify on Demand. We then receive a service connection from Azure DevOps to Micro Focus Fortify on Demand and the information from the application tested.

We are using Micro Focus Fortify on Demand in two ways in most of our processes. We are either using it from our DevOps pipeline using Azure DevOps or the teams which are not yet onboarded in Azure DevOps, are running it manually by putting in the code then sending it to the security team where they will scan it.

We use two solutions for our application testing. We use SonarQube for next-level unit testing and code quality and Micro Focus Fortify on Demand mostly for vulnerabilities and security concerns.

Principal Solutions Architect at a security firm with 11-50 employees

Our clients use it for scanning their applications and evaluating their application security. It is mostly for getting the application security results in, and then they push the vulnerabilities to their development team on an issue tracker such as Jira.

I usually have the latest version unless I need to support something on an older version for a client. We're not really deploying any of these solutions except for kind of testing and replicating the situations that our clients get into.

BS
R&D at a tech services company with 51-200 employees

We are using Micro Focus Fortify on Demand because in the beginning we were using the on-premise version and it was very limited. We thought we could do everything wanted with the on-premise solution. However, it was not easy to use. 

We are testing the Micro Focus Fortify on Demand solution to improve security.

We are using the on-premise version of this solution for the static code for developers. For the dynamic code, we're using Micro Focus Fortify on Demand.
