If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Codebashing, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
My advice for anyone considering using Codebashing is to try the free version on their web page first. I would advise them to use the free version to understand the concept and to play with the program and only then to consider purchasing it. On a scale of one to 10, I would rate Codebashing a nine.
We're just customers. We don't have a business relationship with the company. I'm pretty sure that the company is using the latest version. I didn't really check the version number, however, I think it's the latest. While we do use a cloud version now, it was previously deployed on-premises. It is a great solution. It's easy to integrate into and it is very common, very popular, here. Anything you need to do, you can do it on the platform. For example, if you're looking to add it to your CITD pipeline, there's a plugin to do that. It's great. Overall, out of ten, I'd rate it at a nine.
I have tested several areas of Codebashing and have used some of the labs that they provide. The labs are useful because you can find examples of flags and known vulnerabilities. It is different from other products. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.
We are not a customer of the solution at my current organization. We are currently running a POC. However, in my previous position, I was a customer. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. It's a hard solution for developers to just start using. It's not so easy to just jump into. It takes time.
This is a solution that I recommend to people who have a Checkmarx socket implementation because it is good to have a platform with this training program included. Otherwise, it depends on the customer. If they have a lot of their own code development then training is needed. However, in some cases, where they have good experts with a lot of knowledge, then their own experts can teach the staff. For companies that do not have information security experts available for training, then this is a very good platform to have because it has very clear and quick lessons. This product is good and it is reliable. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
