We are excited to announce the launch of HCL AppScan Standard from HCL Products & Platforms - Application Security group. HCL AppScan Standard, based on IBM AppScan® suite of products, is a dynamic analysis testing tool designed for security experts and pen-testers to use when performing security tests on web applications and web services. HCL AppScan Standard runs automatic scans that explore and test web applications using one of the most powerful scanning engines in the world.
Testing your web applications before deployment and continuously assessing their risks in your production environment can help prevent expensive web application security breaches. This is where HCL AppScan Standard comes to your assistance.
HCL AppScan Standard helps you tackle complex security scanning challenges with a wide set of features and capabilities. At its core is the scanning engine which includes industry leading security rules and validation logic. HCL AppScan Standard is capable of scanning web-applications built with a variety of technologies and based on the latest frameworks available in the wild. Extensive configuration and adaptation options allow the experts to tailor the scans to their needs and to optimize for speed, coverage, etc. depending on the requirements.
HCL AppScan Standard helps you quickly triage and prioritize issues using the wealth of information provided, including test descriptions and vulnerabilities found. Issue remediation is easy using the advisories and fix recommendations for each issue detected. The Issue Information feature puts all issue related information in a unified location to quickly capture what the test did, why an issue was reported, view evidence in a glance, and get instruction on how to validate the issue yourself.
As an expert tool, HCL AppScan Standard allows you to perform additional manual testing and add those results into the final scan. Creating custom rules for specific issues is also easy with the User Defined Tests capabilities.
Finally, HCL AppScan Standard provides the means to generate various security, compliance, and industry standards reports. You can share the results with other members of the organization with configurable level of details. This can be a highlight of all the issues to assess risk, a detailed listing of the tests with traffic to development for resolution, and everything in between.
