Checkmarx vs WhiteSource: What are the differences?
What is Checkmarx? Unify your application security into a single platform. It is a provider of state-of-the-art application security solution: static code analysis software, seamlessly integrated into development process.
What is WhiteSource? *Continuously monitoring open source libraries for vulnerabilities *. It automatically identiﬁes all the open source components and dependencies in your build by constant and automatic cross-referencing of your open source components.
Checkmarx and WhiteSource belong to "Security" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Checkmarx are:
- Evaluate Your Exposure with a Holistic Platform
- Gain Full Visibility
- Secure Your Entire SDLC
On the other hand, WhiteSource provides the following key features:
- Open Source Code Identification
- Vulnerable Components Mapping
- License & Identity Risks Discovery
I'm beginning to research the right way to better integrate how we achieve SCA / shift-left / SecureDevOps / secure software supply chain. If you use or have evaluated WhiteSource, Snyk, Sonatype Nexus, SonarQube or similar, I would very much appreciate your perspective on strengths and weaknesses and how you selected your ultimate solution. I want to integrate with GitLab CI.
