Empower your Application Security Testing with AppScan V10.0.1

It’s hard to believe that AppScan V10 was announced more than three months ago. You may recall my March 17th blog, which recapped all of our V10 enhancements. We can agree that a lot has changed during the past three months, but HCL AppScan’s commitment to technological innovation has remained extremely consistent. And. I’m really proud to say the AppScan Team didn’t miss a beat adjusting to the new normal of working from home.

In this blog, I spotlight key AppScan V.10.0.1 enhancements, by product line. I also encourage you to attend our “AppScan Tuesdays” special event on June 30th, where we will provide additional details about many of the new capabilities that are outlined below.
