With the recent announcement of IBM Rational AppScan Source Edition V7.0, a major release providing significant improvements on the previous version, IBM will withdraw the previous IBM Rational AppScan Source Edition V6.2. IBM Rational AppScan Source Edition V7.0 is entirely based on IBM assets and allows us to provide and maintain premium support for this solution.

IBM Rational AppScan offerings include analysis techniques to traverse an application or its source code, analyzing and testing the application or its code, validating the findings, and then reporting results.

IBM Rational AppScan Source Edition helps avert a data breach by finding security flaws in the source code of networked applications. Security teams can strengthen application security, protect confidential data, and improve compliance. Combining this source code testing tool with Web application security scanning provides the most comprehensive coverage for addressing vulnerabilities in applications.
