Micro Focus Fortify on Demand Valuable Features

DV
Senior System Analyst at Azurian

One of the top features is the source code review for vulnerabilities. When we look at source code, it's hard to see where areas may be weak in terms of security, and Fortify on Demand's source code review helps with that.

Another reason I like Fortify on Demand is because our code often includes open source libraries, and it's important to know when the library is outdated or if it has any known vulnerabilities in it. This information is important to us when we're developing our solutions and Fortify on Demand informs us when it detects any vulnerable open source libraries.

Once we have our project created with our application pipeline connected to the test scanning, it only takes two minutes. The report explaining what needs to be modified related to security and vulnerabilities in our code is very helpful. We are able to do static and dynamic code scanning.

When we are exploring some of the endpoints this solution identifies many loopholes that hackers could utilize for an attack. This has been very helpful and surprising how many vulnerabilities there can be.

Almost all the features are good. This solution has simplified designing and architecting for our solutions. We were early adopters of microservices.

Their documentation is good. You don't need to put in much effort in setting it up and learning stuff from scratch and start using it. The learning curve is not too much.

AP
Project Analyst at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees

The most valuable feature is the capacity to be able to check vulnerabilities during the development process. The development team can check whether the code they are using is vulnerable to some type of attack or there is some type of vulnerability so that they can mitigate it. It helps us in achieving a more secure approach towards internal applications.

It is an intuitive solution. It gives all the information that a developer needs to remediate a vulnerability in the coding process. It also gives you some examples of how to remediate a vulnerability in different programming languages. This solution is pretty much what we were searching for.

The feature that I find the most useful is being able to just see the vulnerabilities online while checking the code and then checking suggestions for fixing them.

The most valuable feature of Micro Focus Fortify on Demand is the information it can provide. There is quite a lot of information. It can pinpoint right down to where the problem is, allowing you to know where to fix it. Overall the features are easy to use, you don't have to be a coder. You can be a manager, or in IT operations, et cetera, anyone can use it. It is quite a well-rounded functional solution.

The allocations to different members of a team are good. If you find a problem, you can delegate the task to patch the particular code.

It is a very easy tool for developers to use in parallel while they're doing the coding. It does auto scanning as we are progressing with the CI/CD pipeline. It has got very simple and efficient API support.

It is an extremely robust, scalable, and stable solution.

It enhance the quality of code all along the CI/CD pipeline from a security standpoint and enables developers to deliver secure code right from the initial stages.

There is not only one specific feature that we find valuable. The idea is to integrate the solution in DevSecOps which we were able to do. We were working with a different solution called SolarCloud previously and it was limited. We are trying to find the right level of security for our needs.

The UL is easy to use compared to that of other tools, and it is highly reliable. The findings provide a lower number of false positives.

It is easy to install, and the cost is fair.

Fortify supports most languages. Other tools are limited to Java and other typical languages. IBM's solutions aren't flexible enough to support any language. Fortify also integrates with lots of tools because it has API support.
