For me, as a manager, it was the ease of use. Inserting security into the development process is not normally an easy project to do. The ability for the developer to actually use it and get results and focuses, that's what counted.

It highlights, with several grades of severity, the types of vulnerabilities, so we can focus on the most severe security vulnerabilities in the code.

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.

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.

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.

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. ​

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.

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.

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

There is not a central management for static and dynamic.
