HCL AppScan Review

Simplifies our work by allowing us to do multiple website scans together


How has it helped my organization?

IBM AppScan has made our work easy, as we can do four to five scans of websites at a time, which saves time when it comes to vulnerability.

What is most valuable?

Many features are valuable but some features stand out, like using our own scripts, and capturing the authentication.

What needs improvement?

  • It has crashed at times
  • Scans become slow on large websites
  • Many silly false positives are produced

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Yes, sometimes we encounter stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Yes, sometimes we encounter scalability issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

I would rate tech support a seven out of 10.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Yes. We switched because they made our work easier, with fewer false positives.

How was the initial setup?

It was simple, once we watched many video tutorials and read PDFs to learn about it.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes, I used with Acunetix and open source tools.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

v9.0.3
