AppScan Presence

An AppScan Presence on your server enables you to scan sites not accessible from the Internet, and to incorporate scanning as part of your functional testing.

The AppScan Presence includes two components, a Private Site Server for scanning private sites (web or mobile), and a Proxy Server (web apps only) for incorporating scanning as part of your own functional testing.
Private Site Server

For web apps that are not accessible from the Internet, and mobile apps that connect to a back-end server that is not available from the Internet, you must create an AppScan Presence, with access to the web app or back-end server, and to the Internet, to be able to scan. Then follow the regular instructions for mobile or dynamic scanning. The same presence can be used for Android apps, iOS apps and websites. Proxy connections are supported.

Proxy Server

In the world of DevOps it's increasingly important to be able to incorporate security scans in the functional testing process for your web apps. If you use an automation framework (such as Selenium), you can take advantage of the scripts that are already written to create tailor-made scans. The requests from the automation framework to the web app are sent through the Proxy Server proxy. The server records the traffic and saves it as a .config file. You then upload the file to be used by Application Security on Cloud as Explore data for a scan. You can also send traffic through the automation server proxy manually, to create a .config file.
