Overall Satisfaction with HCL AppScan (formerly from IBM)

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.

  • Reduce number of false poitives
  • Add automation tools to reduce manual effort

  • prepare dynamic dashboards
  • DevSecOps
  • Static Code Analyzer
  • Application security reporting
  • Reduced manual effort by 20-30%
  • Integrate 3-4 security solutions with other tools in the system
  • prevent sql injection attacks in our business
Both solutions are decent, however, I had team members who had the experience working with HCL AppScan. Also, the product was priced nominally which suited our budget. Further, HCL AppScan's user community was bigger and many learning resources were freely available which helped junior peers learn quickly and eliminate any issues.

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
