There are some false positives, which need to be removed, but this is common with all types of scanners. One thing which I think can be improved is the CI/CD Integration. There is a CI/CD Integration model, but I guess they are deliberately not using it currently. There are challenges when integrating AppScan with CI/CD because sometimes the activation plus the login mechanism provided doesn't work properly. Sometimes a login mechanism fails and then the whole scan fails. It's difficult to integrate with CI/CD. View full review »

IBM Security AppScan needs to add performance optimization for quickly scanning the target web applications. View full review »
