We have used SonarQube quite a lot and this is great to check code quality, security hotspots much earlier in the SDLC and fix those. The community edition is free to use, can be used on-premises and is integrated seamlessly with Jenkins and others. The Enterprise and Developer commercial editions offer a lot more rules and functionalities.

Veracode is mostly in space of security testing and amongst the leader in this space. It's a commercial product and has no community edition, to the best of my knowledge. 

Depending on your use cases, you will need both of these areas to be covered through these or other tools.

Feels like a false choice to me. They each are trying to do different things as other posters have suggested. What are the outcomes you are looking for?

Both products in the industry are practiced slightly for different purposes. If you are after the code then SonarQube and if you are after the security then Veracode.

They are mainly two different products. 

If your goal is to set the quality on code then SonarQube is your answer. 

On the other side, if your main goal is to set high-quality standards in terms of cybersecurity (i.e. both security and compliance with regulations), then Veracode is a better match.
