The only issue we have had is sometimes the web app is too slow, and that causes issues with us wanting to continue to use FOSSA over going with another tool. That is the only problem. I noticed it happened more recently, but if that is solved now or will be solved, I would 100% recommend this tool to anyone!

I would say that HCL AppScan is very simple to understand and use since it uses a user-friendly interface and the terminologies that are used in the interface of the application is very clear. We can automate a scan with any third party like Jenkins. The fact, I don't like is the time takes to execute the application, it should be better.

      We have been using AppScan for about 14 years (Before it was acquired by IBM). A few years ago we did an upgrade from the standard edition to the enterprise edition (to allow several users at once) in order to accommodate the growth of our team. Prior to this upgrade we looked at several other products and decided to stay with AppScan. One of the major reasons was our familiarity with this product so that we could upgrade without the need to train our staff on a new product. All of these products were very close in comparison so we found no compelling reason to change.

      Return on Investment

      FOSSA

      • Hard to measure the ROI, but no doubt having licenses be above board is fantastic for protection of your software.
      • Caused developers to make more informed decisions.

      • 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.
