There were times when we had to run the login sequence several times in order to capture it properly. It took us between eight and ten hours to scan an entire site, which is somewhat slow and something that I think can be improved.

Creating reports is very slow and it is something that should be improved. In the future, I would like to see better integration between static analysis and dynamic analysis.

Right now, it's kind of bulky. There are a lot of newer generation tools coming out that are easier. Also, when it comes to the installation and deployment, they inspect the enterprise. It was ok with the scale, but still I think they can make it a little lighter in nature.

The solution needs better integration with Microsoft's Azure Cloud or an extension of Azure DevOps. In fact, it should better integrate with any cloud provider. Right now, it's quite difficult to integrate with that solution, from the cloud perspective.

The solution needs improvements from the scanning and the technical perspective. In the next release, we would love to see smooth scale mobile testing - if it has similar to testing with wider applications for different technologies as well because people are moving towards mobile. If the solution can integrate AI and also understand the application by itself, this will be great.

The service can be improved by creating a reduction of false positives.

Fortify Static Code Analyzer is actually NOT an SCA (Software Composition Analysis) tool! It competes more with Checkmarx and Veracode
