We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
This solution saves us time due to the low number of false positives detected.The static scans are good, and the SaaS as well.It provides a better integration for our ecosystem.You can easily find particular features and functions through the UI.We leverage it as a quality check against code.We are now deploying less defects to production.Usually when we deploy the application, there is a process for ethical hacking. The main benefit is that, the ethical hacking is almost clean, every time. So it's less cost, less effort, less time to production.It has certainly helped us find vulnerabilities in our software, so this is priceless in the end.

Cons
IBM Security AppScan needs to add performance optimization for quickly scanning the target web applications.There is not a central management for static and dynamic.Visibility is an issue for us. Our partners do not know we have integrations with some of IBM products.I would like to see the roadmap for this product. We are still waiting to see it as we have only so many resources.I would love to see more containers. Many of the tools are great, they require an amount of configuration, setup and infrastructure. If most the applications were in a container, I think everything would be a little bit faster, because all our clients are now using containers.​IBM Security AppScan Source is rather hard to use​.There are so many lines of code with so many different categories that I am likely to get lost. ​It's a little bit basic when you talk about the Web Services. If AppScan improved its maturity on Web Services testing, that would be good.
