HCL Appscan has been ranked a leader in an IDC Marketscape report for worldwide application testing, security and quality.
At a time when the application attack surface has become more vulnerable than ever, and quality and security are top-of-mind of most businesses, HCL AppScan is making its presence felt in the marketplace.
“Software drives competitive advantage and innovation, and quality and security are pressing business-critical issues as deployment speeds increase, development time frames compress, and application attack surface is a key risk area (made more vulnerable by the ability to easily find susceptible code),” said Melinda Ballou, research director for IDC’s Application Life-Cycle Management, Quality, and Portfolio Strategies service.
“HCLSoftware has demonstrated its capabilities by providing its customers the breadth of coverage of quality and security testing and making the products both attainable and consumable.”
According to one IDC report, HCLSoftware customers emphasized the strong product support offered by the company, suggesting that consistent meetings with product management around experiences and suggestions influenced product road maps.
Customers also relayed to IDC significant impacts after adopting HCLSoftware’s products. One customer cited the time taken for DAST (dynamic application security testing) reduced from days to one hour after noting that more than 50 percent of its more than 1,400 applications were being scanned automatically.
