Quotes From Members Comparing IBM Security AppScan vs WebInspect

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
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.I like the recording feature.

Cons
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.I think being able to search across more containers, especially some of the docker elements. We need a little tighter integration there. That's the only thing I can see at this point.

One thing I would like to see them introduce is a cloud-based platform.We have often encountered scanning errors.

Pricing and Cost Advice
AppScan is a little bit expensive. IBM needs to work a little bit on the pricing model, decreasing the license cost.

It’s a fair price for the solution.

Overview

IBM Security AppScan enhances web application security and mobile application security, improves application security program management and strengthens regulatory compliance. By scanning your web and mobile applications prior to deployment, AppScan enables you to identify security vulnerabilities and generate reports and fix recommendations.

Most enterprises rely heavily on the Web to conduct their normal operations, whether providing services, a mechanism for retail sales, or a host of other functions. Yet, most still struggle with efficiently managing their application security risks. For one thing, they need solutions of scale that can be used to manage thousands of active sites and assessments while also tracking discovered vulnerabilities, retesting procedures, and more. They need to perform repeated security tests to address compliance with regulations, legislation, and internal security policies and also see how their risk posture has changed over time. The enterprises have to protect their data, brand, and bottom line from the harsh impacts of what successful vulnerability exploitation could bring. Micro Focus WebInspect Enterprise enables organizations to solve these security problems quickly, efficiently, and intelligently.
