HCL AppScan Primary Use Case
Principal Architect, Application Build Security. at a transportation company with 10,001+ employees
HCL AppScan is primarily used to improve application security. We are transitioning from DevOps to DevSecOps.
We are attempting to integrate these tools into our CICD pipeline in order to meet our business use cases. And if we notice that the tool is missing any business features or a feature, we will highlight them and work to have them fixed or implemented. That is how we go about it. We don't go for any generic features because that will be handled by the product team. We are here to identify our gaps and then have them implemented by the vendor team.
AppScan is only used for web scanning; we do not use it for anything else.View full review »
General Manager at a consultancy with 51-200 employees
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.View full review »
