I am not very familiar with SonarQube and their solutions, so I can not answer.
But if you are asking me about which tools that are the best for for Static Code Analysis, I suggest you have a look at the Gartner Maqic Quadeant for Application Security Testing (AST) .
In the latest Gartner Quadrant for AST (Static and Dynamic App Security testing) these are the "Leaders" as per April 2020 according to Gartner ranking:
3. MicroFocus (Fortify)
5. WhiteHat Security
I used to work as a Fortify Sales Specialist in HP before Fortify was acquired by MicroFocus a few years ago.
I can strongly recommend Fortify because they have both the Static and Dynamic testing - and you can even choose to have the solution(-s) deployed as an "on-premise " or "Cloud" solution . In fact you can even have a "hybrid" between Cloud and On-Prem if you want depending on your organisations need and need for automation in different countries.
I can see you work for ACCENTURE? That is a big WW org. with different requirements for app testing accross different countries, I imagine?
So you can decide to have e.g. a Fortify "on-premise" version in one country and in another country you can have the solution deployed as a "Cloud service" so you get full freedom and the flexibility for automation and continous AppSec testing of the development teams coding.
This will also educate the Developer teams into becoming better coders because they will learn from the corrections in the coding done by Fortify.
And remember that you can also use this in your Sales advertising, because you can get a report to document that your coding and DevOps has been Security tested and analysed by the Fortify solution and therefore you can advertise your services are proved and documented as " Secure by design" by the Fortify solution.
I can help connect you directly with my old collegue from HP. He is today Fortify EMEA Global Head of Sales (based in UK).
Let me know if you want me to connect you or if you want to look at some other AppSec (AST) solution from the Gartner AST MQ report I mentioned above instead?
SonarQube is one of the widely used and easy-to-use tools.
With some easy plug-ins, it would provide some very good insights into code quality, code coverage, static security, pattern-based errors, and performance engineering lapses in code.
But it is not a comprehensive static security-focused tool, like Veracode or Fortify. Also, the usability depends on whether you are using the free version or the enterprise edition (It has some associated cost) but not to the extent of other commercial tools. Hope this helps.
We have been using SonarQube and SonarLint (IDE) for quite some time on multiple projects and it is one of the best if not the best.
It can handle multiple tech stacks, gives a good view of the static code in terms of vulnerabilities, hotspots, code smells, bugs, etc. Allows adding plugins, integrate with CI/CD even with the community edition. Developer and Enterprise additions allow branch-level integration as well for pull requests.
@Evgeny Belenky Yes. We have used it for typescript, java, .NET, SQL. Coverage depends on the rules available for each language. It is possible to import more rules if required. My experience has been great till now.
Please have a look at the TICS framework, offered by www.tiobe.com, it is heavily used in the embedded industry, like Philips, ASML, Porsche, etc, to check the quality of the code. This framework also combines various other tools, like Coverity, Fortify and others.
There are many tools that can work for static code analysis, both in open source as well as in-licensed segments. It would be good to know your requirements for the tool. Are you just looking to have a static code analyzer and integrate it in the DevOps pipeline?
It is also important to know which programming language/code has been used for your application.
Additionally, SCA functionality is also important, if you are working for a big corporation, wherein open source libraries/components are not allowed.
I wanted to check with those who have experience in using both SonarQube Community Edition and SonarQube Enterprise Edition.
What real advantages do you see in spending money to procure an enterprise license vs using community edition which is free?
