SonarCloud Security Assessment


Hope everyone is safe and healthy!

Just like some here, we are glad to inform you that we have completed our POC regarding SonarQube and SonarCloud, and will happily proceed with the Cloud Version.

However, in order for us to proceed with the next steps, we wanted someone who could assist us in filling up our Third-Party Security Assessment.

We understand that SonarCloud is really designed to be self-service and there are documentations and security links for us to go-through, but there are some instances it cannot be answered with those documentations.

We wanted to use SonarCloud before January ends.

We also talked with your Sales Team and told us that they also do not entertain any calls.

Hope you could help us with this.

Appreciate all the response.

Thank you so much!

Hi @ge_na

Welcome to this forum !
As you mentioned, SonarCloud is a shared platform with all security and privacy items explained directly on the website documentation:

You can describe here what are your questions regarding SonarCloud, if we can help you at some point answering them.

Hello @ge_na,
Did you get any form of answer from Sonarsource’s side. I’m looking for any certification and audit documentation of Sonarcloud and -qube, yet could not find anything.
Thank you!
