It is best suited for integrated security testing of applications which are hosted on web servers. The most important thing is the integration of DevSecOps which is crucial in today's fast paced environment of rapid development. The core of Acunetix is application scanning which is really great and I highly recommend this product to everyone

Has other features built-in beyond just scanning for vulnerabilities. Read full review AppScan works well in finding application vulnerabilities such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting and all of the OWASP top 10. Flexible reporting allows us to generate executive reports for application owners as well as separate technical reports for developers and system engineers. Technical reports include remediation information and cross reference CVSS scores Because it maintains data on all repeated assessments it helps us to do trending and metrics on compliance Read full review Cons Configuration of DevSecOps can be improved for ease Dashboard can have API integration Broaden the scope of vulnerabilities Read full review It can have a FAQ session in the Application itself. It can recommend the fix for the error that occurred during the scan. Like its storing multiple manuals explore, It should have the capability of storing multiple logins.

ZAP is a free tool, and adequate. But it is to that extent less friendly. I would not be as confident of the results and it definitely can't produce reports on par with Acunetix. There would be a lot of legwork on our end if we desired to switch to this tool.

Both solutions are decent, however, I had team members who had the experience working with HCL AppScan. Also, the product was priced nominally which suited our budget. Further, HCL AppScan's user community was bigger and many learning resources were freely available which helped junior peers learn quickly and eliminate any issues
Read full review Return on Investment Saved money compared to other commercial scanners, especially over the long run. Scan speed seems to be pretty good compared to some of the bulkier commercial products out there. However, that largely has to do with proper configuration. A downside is that is requires a bit of extra work just to get it set up to scan APIs, web services, etc. Read full review There are countless implementations to accomplish the same thing, and so many configurations are required. Even if you test it finished and find no vulnerabilities, there is no point if you just get the error screen. Until now, I was worried about vulnerabilities and security in software development, but I think it was good to find the vulnerability problem quickly with HCL AppScan.
