This section lists new product features and enhancements.

New in HCL AppScan Dynamic Analysis Client version 10.0.0

Test Optimization
The new Test Optimization slider lets you control the extent of tradeoff between issue coverage and scan speed. Test Optimization selectively sends tests most likely to discover significant issues in your application, so during product development you can take advantage of faster scans with a relatively small loss of thoroughness. You can choose between four optimization levels, for various needs such as initial testing, DevSecOps, pre-release, compliance and more. The fastest option includes a Test stage up to 10 times faster than a non-optimized scan, with approximately 70% of the vulnerability coverage. For details, see Test Optimization.
Note: For new scans, the "Fast" setting is selected by default.
Optimized Action-Based Explore with Machine Learning
Improved Explore stage efficiency using Machine Learning. AppScan can predict actions that are likely to lead to already-discovered parts of the site, so it can avoid them. See "Use Machine Learning to analyze and skip redundant actions" check box in Action-Based tab.
The Help file format has been improved and now opens in your default browser. The documentation is now available in English, French, Japanese, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese.
