When it comes to secure application development, HCLSoftware continues to be a leader with a proven track record of prioritizing user experience. With Version 2.0 of HCL AppScan Go!, featuring a new user flow, updated user interface, and added features, this new release helps users to easily configure the application security scans they need to secure their software.

HCL AppScan Go! supports cross-platforms (Windows, macOS, Linux) and the latest version provides a smooth and convenient process to both create scans and to upload them to HCL AppScan on Cloud.

Compared to using CLI (command line interface), HCL AppScan Go! allows users to conveniently include and exclude files within a table which visually displays the targets projects in an organized presentation. Users can easily generate IRX file, configuration file and create a SAST (Static Application Security Testing) scan to AppScan on Cloud for SAST analysis.

Summary of what is new in HCL AppScan Go! v2.0:

  • Responsive sleek user interface and updated user flow
  • Streamline selection of scan targets
  • Support for multiple scan types including SAST issues only and secrets scanning

Now let’s dive into details of what is new in HCL AppScan Go! v2.0.

Responsive Sleek User Interface and New User Flow

From the start screen, users have three options: run a scan now, create an archive (IRX format), and create configuration file for scan automation.

Run a scan now allows users to select files, configure the scan and send it to HCL AppScan on Cloud for SAST analysis directly.

Create an archive (IRX format) allows users who work in an offline or secure environment to choose folders and files and generate an IRX file. The IRX file is an encrypted file that secures the project information users select, such as folders, files and codes. After generating the IRX file, users can upload the IRX file to HCL AppScan on Cloud for SAST scanning at their own convenience.

Create configuration file for scan automation is for users to generate a configuration file and associate it with a plugin to automate their scans. The configuration file contains settings and configurations to tailor the scan to the users' needs. Scans can be refined further by including or excluding certain files and paths in the configuration file.

Streamline Selection of Scan Targets

HCL AppScan Go! 2.0 has a redesigned table interface and displays data in a directory structure to help the users easily locate the folders and files they need. With this new format, users can easily view what to include and exclude in terms of files and folders.

We added a filter for languages to narrow the scope for inclusions and exclusions.

Support for Multiple Scan Types

Users can select to scan SAST issues, SCA* (open source/third-party) issues, and hardcoded secrets such as passwords, credit card numbers, and social security numbers (SSN).

*SCA licensed separately from SAST
