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.It is easy it is to use. It is quick to find things, because of the code scanning tools. It's quite simple to use and it is very good the way it reports the findings.It comes with all of the templates that we need. For example, we are a company that is regulated by PCI. In order to be PCI compliant, we have a lot of checks and procedures to which we have to comply.

The most important feature of the product is to follow today's technology fast, updated rules and algorithms (of the product).Micro Focus WebInspect and Fortify code analysis tools are fully integrated with SSC portals and can instantly register to error tracking systems, like TFS and JIRA.I don’t know of any other On-Demand enterprise solution like this one where we can load the details and within a few days, receive the results of intrusion attacks, and work with HP Security Experts when needed for clarificationThe quality of application security testing reduces risk and gives very few false positives.We identified a lot of security vulnerability much earlier in the development and could fix this well before the product was rolled out to a huge number of clients.Audit workbench: for on-the-fly defect auditing.

Cons
It has crashed at times.Scans become slow on large websites.Many silly false positives are produced.We would like to integrate with some of the other reporting tools that we're planning to use in the future.We would like to see a check in the specific vulnerabilities in mobile applications or rooted devices, such as jailbreaking devices.

The biggest deficiency is the integration with bug tracker systems. It might be better if the configuration screen presented for accessing the bug tracking systems could provide some flexibility.With Rapid7 I utilized its reporting capabilities to deliver Client Reports within just a few minutes of checking the data. I believe that HP’s FoD Clients could sell more services to clients if HP put more effort into delivering visually pleasing reporting capabilities.New technologies and DevOps could be improved. Fortify on Demand can be slow (slower than other vendors) to support new technologies or new software versions.The Visual Studio plugin seems to hang when a scan is run on big projects. I would expect some improvements there..NET code scanning is still dependent on building the code base before running any scan. Also, it's dependent on an IDE such as Visual Studio.
