IT Central Station is now PeerSpot: Here's why

Veracode Primary Use Case

Stephen Pack - PeerSpot reviewer
Software development program leader at Vendavo

My company produces a SaaS application that is used by very large customers for pricing analytics and sales workflows. The data that our customers put into our software is very sensitive and confidential. This means that they want a high degree of confidence that our solution is secure.

We use Veracode as one of the pillars that we can point to as helping us to deliver on the promise of having a secure product. We have a multi-dimensional security program and Veracode is one important aspect of that.

There are three areas where we started using Veracode immediately. One is static component analysis. The second is their static application security test, where they take a static version of your code and scan through it, looking for security vulnerabilities. The third piece is the DAST product or dynamic application security test.

We also use their manual pen-testing professional services solution in which they manually hit a live version of your product and try to break it or to break through passwords or try to get to your database layer—all that stuff that hackers typically do.

The use case is that we have quite a few projects on GitHub. As we are a consulting company, some of these projects are open source and others are enterprise and private. We do security investigating for these projects. We scan the repository for both the static analysis—to find things that might be dangerous—and we use the Software Composition Analysis as well. We get notifications when we are using some open source library that has a known vulnerability and we have to upgrade it. We can plan accordingly.

We are using the software as a service.

We have three use cases. We have the dynamic scans that we use to scan the production, public-facing URLs. We also use the static scan where we work with the Dev team and scan the code base for the web application and the mobile application on both iOS and Android. Our third use case is manual penetration tests, which my team manages. We do annual manual penetration tests.

It's deployed to our platform infrastructure, which is in a public cloud.

Manager, Information Technology at Broadcom Corporation

Veracode has both static application security testing as well as dynamic application security testing, also called Dynamic Analysis. Our primary use case was on the static analysis side, not on the dynamic, because we have an automated tool in the dynamic analysis scope. So our primary use was static analysis security testing.

We use it for dynamic scanning and Static Code Analysis as well as for Software Composition Analysis (SCA).

We do use this solution's support for cloud-native applications.

Mauro Verderosa - PeerSpot reviewer
Cybersecurity Expert at PSYND

We use both the static and the dynamic scanning. What we do is run the code through the scanner once we make any modifications. And periodically, we also run the dynamic to connect several applications. We use Veracode to check for specific vulnerabilities such as cross-site scripting. When we are checking for those vulnerabilities, we take a portion of code that is going to be generated and we run the scanner.

We use Veracode primarily for three purposes:

  1. Static Analysis, which is integrated into our CI/CD pipeline, using APIs. 
  2. Every release gets certified for a static code analysis and dynamic code analysis. There is a UAT server, where it gets deployed with the latest release, then we perform the dynamic code scanning on that particular URL.
  3. Software Composition Analysis: We use this periodically to understand the software composition from an open source licensing and open source component vulnerability perspective.

We utilize it to scan our in-house developed software, as a part of the CI/CD life cycle. Our primary use case is providing reporting from Veracode to our developers. We are still early on in the process of integrating Veracode into our life cycle, so we haven't consumed all features available to us yet. But we are betting on utilizing the API integration functionality in the long-term. That will allow us to automate the areas that security is responsible for, including invoking the scanning and providing the output to our developers so that they can correct any findings.

Right now, it hasn't affected our AppSec process, but our 2022 strategy is to implement multiple components of Veracode into our CI/CD life cycle, along with the DAST component. The goal is to bridge that with automation to provide something closer to real-time feedback to the developers and our DevOps engineering team. We are also looking for it to save us productivity time across the board, including security.

It's a SaaS solution.

We use the Veracode SAST solution to scan the Java, Node.js, and Python microservices as part of our CI/CD pipeline, wherein we are using our CI/CD server as Bamboo, Jenkins, and GitLab CI/CD. 

We have teams for both our cloud pipeline and on-prem pipeline, and both teams use this solution. We are using Veracode to constantly run the internal application source code and ensure the code's security hygiene.

R&D Director at a computer software company with 201-500 employees

We focus on these two use cases: 

  1. Our first use case is for Static Analysis (SAST). The purpose of it is to scan our code for any vulnerabilities and security breaches. Then, we get some other reports from the tool, pointing us to the problematic line of code, showing us what is the vulnerability, and giving us suggestions on how to fix or mitigate them.
  2. The second use case is for the Software Composition Analysis (SCA) tool, which is scanning our open sources and third-party libraries that we consumed. They scan and check on the internal database (or whatever depository tool it is using), then they return back a report saying our open sources, the versions, and what are the exposures of using those versions. For any vulnerability, it suggests the minimum upgrades to do in order to move to another more secure version.

We use it for static scans. It is mandatory in our company for every sort of project.

Veracode provides the organization an understanding of security bugs and security holes in our software, finding out if the software is production-ready. It is used as gate management, so we can have a fast understanding if the software is suitable for deployment and production.

My job is to help projects by getting the data integrated in Veracode. I don't own the code or develop code. In this area, I am a little bit like an integration specialist.

We use Azure and AWS, though AWS is relatively fresh as we are now just starting to define guidelines and how the architecture will look. Eventually, within a half year to a year, we would like to have deployments there. I am not sure if dynamic scanning is possible in AWS Cloud. If so, that would be just great.

David Jellison - PeerSpot reviewer
Senior Director, Quality Engineering at Everbridge

Our primary use case for Veracode is SAST and SCA in our SDLC pipelines. We also use it for DAST on a periodic basis and time-based scans on our staging system. We use the trading modules for certifying all our developers annually.

In addition, we use Veracode to scan within our build's pipeline. We do use Greenlight, which is their IDE solution for prevention of issues of vulnerabilities.

 we are FedRAMP certified as a company, so we use this as part of our certification process for Veracode ISO 27001 and various other certifications we have.

We use Veracode for static and dynamic code analysis, as well as software composition analysis (SCA). Using it ensures that our products are compliant, and it also provides an external method to assure our customers that our products are free from any flaws, or application security issues.

Our product resides on the Azure Cloud, and we have Veracode access it directly.

We have a website built on the Microsoft stack, with .NET. Veracode comes in and scans our code and, for the static side of it, we zip up the CS files and the JavaScript files, and upload them for scanning.
