We perform more dynamic scanning using AppScan. We set up a scan, perform it and get the results, and then give the results back to our customer. Within our organization, there are four members of the team who are using it. Currently, we are satisfied with AppScan but I am sure there are better alternatives available because this is a very old product. It's been on market for more than ten years now. I am sure there are a lot of new age products that are more scalable and cloud-based. Although we are using it and will probably continue to do so moving forward, I think there are better alternatives on the market now.

The primary use case is to detect time-based Blind SQL Injection attacks, as well as Error-Based Injection attacks. The SQL injection attack is my favorite and I have more expertise in this vulnerability.

Our clients use it to try to find errors in base code, and also to find how solutions work together. I believe they have on-premise usage; they are local government, so they are not very used to using the cloud.
