HCL AppScan Review

We are now deploying less defects to production

What is our primary use case?

It is used as a last check before moving code to production. Therefore, it is used as a developer tool.

How has it helped my organization?

With AppScan, we are now deploying less defects to production.

What is most valuable?

We leverage it as a quality check against code.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No stability issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have a strong partnership with IBM. Their tech support is very knowledgeable.

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

We were using something else (a competing product of IBM), but we switched to AppScan because it is reliable.

What other advice do I have?

Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: At the end of the day, it would have to be the support and relationship. There are a lot of smart people out there building products which do things. However, not everyone can use them, and without having someone to call, it is sort of its own disadvantage.
