Automate your Web application security testing with IBM® Rational® AppScan®.

Organisations are increasingly leveraging web based applications and solutions delivered via web services, to improve efficiencies, drive better collaboration and open new channels to market. Unfortunately, as web applications get more complex, so do their inherent vulnerabilities. As they become more useful and pervasive, they become higher value targets for hackers and cyber criminals.

Rational AppScan provides an automated means of detecting these potential vulnerabilities and provides advice on how to evaluate, understand and resolve the underlying security issues. Appscan minimises the cost of conducting risk assessments and analysis and reduces business risk by providing visibility into issues that impact security best practice and regulatory compliance.
