Considerations when choosing Sonatype
  • It’s been over two years since Sonatype last updated their comparison page against JFrog, and the information is not up to date and contains several inaccuracies.
  • Sonatype focuses a lot of its criticism on JFrog’s support team, however the facts speak for themselves:
    • JFrog has an industry-leading support team, which is highly professional and proficient in our products.
    • JFrog is the only DevOps vendor to offer HTS support.
    • Our average response time is 2 hours for critical cases, and 23 hours for non-critical and for non-paying customers.
    • Over 100 support engineers with open calendars according to the customer’s schedule.
    • Most cases are scheduled within the same day.
