Checkmarx One

Checkmarx vs Veracode:
AppSec Platform Comparison

Unified AppSec for #DevSecTrust  

Veracode is a legacy AppSec company with a lack of native integrations and historically has only focused on the needs of security teams— not development teams. Checkmarx One provides a unified experience for the DevSecOps model and equips all developers with the best experience they need to reduce and mitigate risk.   

Faster Risk Mitigation

Veracode only scans compiled code, requires two builds to scan, and struggles to point to the line of code in question.

Checkmarx has faster
code-to-remediation time, and more developer resources.

Seamless integrations

Veracode has separate plugins for SCA and SAST, making integration a challenge.

With Checkmarx, integrations with IDEs, SCMs, CI Build tools, and feedback apps are frictionless.

A truly consolidated  AppSec platform  

Veracode has separate scans for SAST and their acquired SCA solution. Veracode uses APIs to connect to SCM tooling.

With Checkmarx, a single event can trigger multiple scans, and results are consolidated into a single view.

Feature Spotlight

Veracode can’t identify malicious packages, leaving you exposed to the most critical attacks.

Not only can Checkmarx identify malicious packages; we can identify whether the package is simply vulnerable or if it has malicious intent, making sure you have full visibility to the attacks that can have the most impact. Checkmarx Software Supply Chain Security monitors all published packages, and we provide the intelligence you need to protect your organization from infected code that attackers have planted in open-source packages.

No matter who your SCA provider is today, you can take advantage of the Checkmarx Supply Chain Threat Intelligence API for the best coverage of the most malicious packages.

Why Checkmarx Stands Out

Find more vulnerabilities

A large FinTech, with more than $15B in revenue, recently migrated from Veracode SAST and SCA to Checkmarx. Checkmarx facilitated all migration and integration plans and provided optimization via a custom managed solution.

The result? In less than six months, Checkmarx optimized nearly 50% of the applications in their portfolio and identified over 12,000 critical vulnerabilities missed by Veracode.

Complete coverage and visibility

Veracode has limited functionality in core areas like IaC, Supply Chain Security, and DAST. They only scans binaries and lacks SCM integration. Without access to the source code, results lack context, and cannot be easily integrated into the CI/CD pipeline.

Checkmarx One provides a consolidated AppSec approach that encompasses multiple layers of the SDLC, so organizations can ensure that they catch vulnerabilities at every stage.


SAST query customization

Tuning SAST to your unique application increases accuracy and reduces false positives and false negatives.

Veracode doesn’t allow you to customize queries. Checkmarx does.

Powered by the Checkmarx AI Query Builder for SAST, AppSec teams can use AI to write custom SAST queries, or fine-tune and modify existing queries, increasing accuracy and reducing false positives and negatives by up to 90%.

Focus your AppSec teams and developers on the most critical issues, by prioritizing API vulnerabilities based on their business value and risk.
