This application helps to perform Dynamic Application Scan, in which the HCL AppScan dynamically navigates through the site and finds any vulnerabilities or fixes that can be done to prevent any future attack. The best thing about this application is the variety of configurations we can do depending on the scenario and the ping capacity.

HCL AppScan is an automated and integrated platform that provides a holistic visibility into the security posture of an application. It enables protection of business-critical applications from security threats, vulnerabilities, and compliance violations. It offers best protection in the market right now. HCL AppScan enables our organizations to secure our mobile and web apps by identifying vulnerabilities and flaws before they are deployed into production environment.

For years I have compared it with products from other companies and free products, but to be honest, the test patterns have become commoditized and I don't think there is a big difference in any product. In addition, the report can be shared with development members, leading to problem-solving.

HCL AppScan (formerly from IBM) is an application security solution that helps my team to review security flaws and bugs in developing applications. HCL AppScan is a source code analysis tool usually known as Static Application Security Testing (SAST) Tool. The solution is well-engineered and is rated among the leaders in the market. It helped my team reduce errors and ensure we followed security best practices in our software development cycle.

We use IBM AppScan as part of our overall vulnerability management program. These assessments are in depth and use several tools, AppScan being the tool we use to look for application vulnerabilities in our Web applications.
We do a pre-production security assessment on all applications before they go live in our environment. In addition we do regularly repeated scans which primarily look for patching compliance and new vulnerabilities that may affect these applications.
