HCLSoftware today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing for its offering, HCL AppScan. The evaluation was based on specific criteria that analyzed the company’s overall completeness of vision and ability to execute.

HCL AppScan delivers a fast, accurate, and agile security testing platform that protects businesses, and their customers from cyber threats. HCL AppScan provides comprehensive security testing capabilities including DAST, SAST, IAST and SCA, and offers the right scanning technology for DevOps use cases through a well-designed and simple-to-use experience. Self-correlating findings, targeted guidance, and developer assisted services empower developers to focus on the fix by reducing overall remediation time while enabling organizations to manage large-scale security programs with control, visibility, and governance.

"During 2020, more than 150 new organizations joined our AppScan customer base, including some of the largest banks worldwide, and our existing customers increased their usage of the cloud platform by more than 50 percent,” said Darren Oberst, Senior CVP and Head of HCLSoftware. "As cybercrime becomes more rampant and is affecting all aspects of business, we believe our Leader position is testament that our customers trust the value, investment, and innovation in the AppScan portfolio.”
