Overall Satisfaction with HCL AppScan

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.
  • Test the application
  • Explore the application for vulnerabilities
  • Runs automatic scans
  • 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.
  • Automate the scan
  • Instant and detailed report
  • The configurations in the application
  • The time takes to execute the scan.
  • Sometime it pings the DB much frequently that it may come down.
  • It does not sends any notification referring that the scan is completed.

Did implementation of HCL AppScan go as expected?


Would you buy HCL AppScan again?


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.
