"Please with Microfocus for over a decade"

What do you like best?

Automation has been extremely easy to learn for our offshore vendor partners and our onsite employee leads. Script re-use has increased as well.

What do you dislike?

steep learning curve but powerful set of tools.

The execution is very slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its great and meets all of our needs. PE technical and core teams including the sales teams have been very prompt at addressing our needs. We were able to chart the course to maturity as an organization by complementing our vision with their products.

Great products and saas service. Excellent communications and followup from HPE account manager

The tool is effective in object identification of a variety of applications but is slow overall.

"Great experience!"

What do you like best?

The response time for analysis report is pretty fast and very well detailed. The reports are very granular and the communication with the vendor is pretty much instantaneous.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the level of effort to fight a "red flag" in the code can be overwhelming. This requires engaging senior level people to agree on something. It feels like going through an audit and having to fight the major discrepancies. That is very time consuming.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would defeinetly recommend this product to anyone looking to validate the security and the quality of the code of any custom application. I probably would recommend the SaS versus the on premises solution.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our code must meet certain security standards that must be validated by a third party such as HPE Fortify. That gives our customers the assurance that our code is secure and optimized to meet their requirements and security standards.

What Static Code Analysis solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"A great component of the SDLC"

What do you like best?

We use the HP Fortify on Demand SaaS, this allows us to free up resources from having to spend time maintaining the infrastructure.

The product allows for RBAC, which helps in allowing appropriate access at all levels.

We have implemented a process of Scan-at-Build, this allows us to ensure that continuous testing is performed.

Additionally, we have enabled SSO, so that developers are able to login to check results as well as add commentary information.

What do you dislike?

One thing that I would like to see improved is the capability for the platform to be able to send alerts on detection of findings. This would allow for stakeholders to be made aware, and take action

Recommendations to others considering the product

A good option for Static Analysis, helps close the application layer gaps as well as provides reporting

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have compliance requirements for code review, and the department runs fairly lean. The product has allowed us to setup continuous testing as well as self-service

"Great Saas with the flexibility to growth "

What do you like best?

The ability to scale and growth from a on site centralized location, to a more of SaaS cloud based. The ability to have a centralize location for all security monitoring and testing within one system and application. While also having the ability to develop any new processes.

The application is very flexible in regards to setting up shop. Meaning it gives an entity the flexibility to develop according to their respective budget, company direction in regards to Portal Web Based, in house hosting, or a matrix or both.

What do you dislike?

If the application is set as a self-service tool, SaaS., it takes away some of the leverage of in-house fixes. Yes the cost is much more attractive to a smaller organization. However, for a larger entity. The upfront cost of setting the infrastructure for the application to be in house, would out weight some of the troubles of migrating later in time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Truly test and each case scenario for implementation. Meaning just because on option is cheaper up-front, it does not necessarily will be the best solution for the next 3, 5, 10 years. Think of all the possible outcomes and what the company needs not just today but years down the road, to avoid possible migrations and added cost due to poor internal planning.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

continuous process improvement within the security layer of the enterprise. The ability to test and obtain real time information on issues, while gaining recommendations.

"Overall a good experience"

What do you like best?

There is a good flexibility of the demand ability

What do you dislike?

Customer service has not been great. Not intuitive so takes some time to get really into it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I guess it works great for securing data, but it takes time to really learn how to use it. If you have problems are basically left to figure it out yourself.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is a great tool as part of the «toolbox». We use the software for testing for us to meet the security standards. It benefits us in the sense that we feel confident that we meet the requirements of the security standards.
