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

This application is well suited for all web applications with the primary difficulty being that is does not handle federated logins.
However since we have validated our federation and vetted it well it is not a critical issue to bypass federation for scanning a site, only an inconvenience as we have to setup bypass authentication and then remove so that is cannot be used by an attacker.
