Earlier this summer, my colleague Larry Gerard shared the news about the IBM Security AppScan 8.6 release. In that release, we announced a re-architected next-generation dynamic analysis security testing engine as part of IBM Security AppScan Enterprise. The new engine, at the heart of any web application security analysis scanner, is an integral part of IBM Security AppScan. Now, with the release of IBM Security AppScan Standard 8.6, I’m excited to share with you more details of the new engine and our continued improvement on product features.Not only is IBM Security AppScan Standard 8.6 now capable of exploring and testing web applications at greater speed, but it is incredibly scalable, allowing it to interact and produce results like never before. Improved speed means a shorter scan time, quicker testing phases, and swift development cycles – saving budget through use of sophisticated tooling abilities. When used throughout the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC), IBM Security AppScan Standard verifies that vulnerabilities are caught quickly, thus minimizing damage down the road.
Improved Speed & Scalability
Enhanced Usability & ReportingThe IBM Security AppScan portfolio offers two dynamic application security testing (DAST) products: IBM Security AppScan Standard and IBM Security AppScan Enterprise. With the release of 8.6 these two products have become more integrated and more aligned, allowing more mobility of features from one product to another.
To complement the deep architectural changes, IBM Security AppScan Standard and Enterprise user interfaces offer sleek and clever improvements that users familiar to IBM Security AppScan Standard will quickly notice. IBM Security AppScan’s reports have been completely re-designed to an attractive and easy-to-read format. Reports now expose more actionable results to be easily delegated throughout the organization.
Even better vulnerability detection with improved XSS AnalyzerLast, but absolutely not least, IBM Security AppScan Standard 8.6 features a secret weapon dubbed “XSS Analyzer”, which was previously detailed in the release of IBM Security AppScan Enterprise 8.6. Why are we mentioning it again? Because we’ve improved its accuracy to find even more XSS vulnerabilities in greatly sophisticated angles, perspectives and contexts.
This latest release of IBM Security AppScan Standard brings with it sophistication like never before: from the next-gen engine to the innovative XSS Analyzer.
