HCL AppScan

HCL AppScan (formerly from IBM) is well suited for reducing security flaws in my team's secure code development. The software identifies a lot of issues automatically which helps us reduce delivery time and prevent security breaches. HCL AppScan (formerly from IBM) lacks innovation and automation functionalities, while other tools offer artificial intelligence-driven analysis that helps the team reduce time and money. Also, there is a need to reduce false-positives generated by the solution

  • 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

Alternatives Considered

HCL AppScan

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.
