HCL AppScan recently released HCL AppScan Source 10.0.8. In this blog, I highlight some of the new releases for AppScan V.10.0.8, by product line.

What’s new in HCL AppScan® Source 10.0.8

The AppScan® Source command line interface (CLI) has been containerized, thus allowing the application and security scanning to be more efficient and more robust. Once installed and configured, a testing environment can be created on-demand, and quickly, and scans can be run concurrently.

AppScan® Source provides a License Manager utility that is used for loading and updating license information on your client machine.

V10.0.8 enhancements for AppScan Source include the following:
