  • Execution date and time added to scan details, so that duration represents Scan Execution time, excluding any queue or pending time.
  • Quick filter on the Fix Groups tab changed to ‘Non-Compliant’ (instead of ‘Active Status’).
  • Link to IAST documentation added to Create IAST Scan dialog.
  • New API added for getting count of issues by severity.
  • Webhooks added to the API, to receive notifications about events that occur in AppScan On Cloud. Two event types are supported: completion of scan execution and change in application counters or status. For more details see Webhooks.
  • Improved filtering of duplicate issues for SAST scans: The Hash algorithm used to uniquely identify SAST Issues has been improved to reduce duplicate Issues. New Issues will be stored with the new internal hash. However the hash value of existing Issues will not be changed.
  • Reports: Fix Groups ID added to the Fix Group sections on the report.

  • IAST Scans: Our latest scan technology uses an agent deployed on the web server of the tested application to monitor traffic sent during runtime, and report vulnerabilities it finds. Unlike other ASoC scans, an IAST scan doesn't generate its own traffic, but monitors your system tests, or traffic sent during a DAST Scan. So you can have ongoing identification of runtime issues without the need to send dedicated test requests. See Interactive (IAST) Scans.
  • Test Optimization for DAST Scans: The DAST scan setup wizard has a new Test Optimization slider that 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. See Test Optimization.
  • Test Policy for DAST Scans: The AppScan Standard Default Test Policy is now applied to all DAST scans configured using the wizard. You can apply a different Test Policy by configuring the scan in AppScan Standard, or through the API.
