We're just customers. We don't have a business relationship with the company. I would recommend WebInspect to enterprise-level organizations. to use. For a smaller company, I'd recommend something more automated. WebInspect has far more manual work, however, it does have good documentation. Overall, I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

While we generally like WebINspect, if a client has a smaller budget, we might suggest Acunetix simply because it is cheaper. However, if a customer's priority was better scanning for their application, we would suggest WebInspect. We like to give our clients options and choices. We prefer to provide them with options that meet their needs and address their pain points. Overall, I would rate the solution seven out of ten. If the price was a bit better, I would rate them higher.

We are using this WebInspect in conjunction with Fortify. We're not using the client-host based deployment, but rather, a web-based one. The agent is not installed on my machine. The suitability of this product depends on your use case. If you're trying to do what we're doing in QA and security then it's probably great. If, however, you want to do things on external sites then I would suggest an external cloud-based one. I would rate this solution a four out of ten.

Yes, I would recommend WebInspect. It is a good product, comparable to AppScan. It is quite scalable, and good cost/value with the support and backing from Micro Focus. It's good and I definitely recommend it. On a scale of one to ten, I would give it an eight.

We're using the public cloud deployment model. Our provider is Microsoft. We just chose the solutions for dynamic scanning and static scanning, but we haven't performed any scanning yet. I'd recommend it; I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.

I am currently evolving, going through the product. We have yet to go through all the features and functionalities of the product. The way it checks for vulnerabilities helps a lot. It makes the most of the check for vulnerabilities. The centralized dashboard for the management is good but I'm still looking into it. That and other features we are yet to be discovered. I'm still trying to get to know all the features. Looking at an enterprise level product is good. With it, you get a centralized board, you have a management view, enroll management and access management. Everything is there. But still, check your requirements, what you need. If you use it for a certain amount of applications, you might not need such a heavy tool. Our requirement is 10 or 20 times more than a regular company and hence we went with an enterprise solution and had somebody who could implement this. If your requirement is a little less, it might just call for some other scanners based on your requirements. If you do need such an extensive requirement, ensure that you also have the data servers and systems for such tools. It will be easy to implement in any environment if you do. I would rate this solution 7 out of 10.
