This video follows John, an IT security team lead, as he builds a consolidated inventory of application assets in AppScan Enterprise 9.0 to improve his organization's application security protection. First, John creates attributes that describe the applications, then he imports a list of existing applications and creates new ones. Lastly, he associates existing AppScan Source and AppScan Standard scans to his new applications and creates new scans, as he discovers areas that lack proper scanning coverage.
