Companies today are perpetually confronted with a barrage of new and evolving threats, making the need for up-to-date application security practices more crucial than ever. In the dynamic landscape of cybersecurity, there can be a real risk in complacency. Simply conducting periodic scans to fulfill compliance obligations is no longer sufficient in safeguarding against the ever-adapting tactics of malicious actors.

This is why HCL AppScan released 10.0.x in 2020. Since its release, 10.0.x has evolved through multiple version releases, each reflecting the needs of customers in their preparedness to remain vigilant and proactive in their approach to application security.

To ensure all of our valued customers and future customers are on a journey towards robust application security that extends far beyond the confines of regulatory mandates, we are providing notice of End of Market / End of Support of 9.0.x of HCL AppScan On-Premise Products (HCL AppScan Enterprise, HCL AppScan Source and HCL AppScan Standard) which will occur on February 28, 2025. AppScan 9.0.x has been in the Market since 2013, and the latest update was introduced in 2019. Please visit our HCL Software Product Lifecycle website for additional release information.
