IBM Security AppScan Enterprise Edition (AppScan) offers advanced application security testing and risk management with a platform that drives governance, collaboration, and security intelligence throughout the application life cycle. While configuring and running scans using AppScan, novice security testers might encounter problems such as improper scan coverage, excessive scan times, failed or suspended scans, communication errors, and so on. The practices described in this white paper will help security testers configure and run more successful scans with IBM Security AppScan Enterprise Edition.

When it comes to scanning applications for security vulnerabilities, no two web app owners want to do the exact same thing. Invasive or non-invasive? Automated or Free-form? Single tester or a team of testers. So no single instance of an application scanning tool is going to satisfy everyone's requirements. That's why AppScan Enterprise supports a multi-plexed install of IBM Security AppScan Enterprise. Each business unit can have their own instance of AppScan Enter[prise, manage access to it, maange access to its reporting dashboard, and set their own standard for what is and isn't scanned and how often.
Lalitha Saravana Prasad and Adarsh Thampian have published a white paper documenting their design and implementation notes for setting up a multiplexed instance of AppScan Enterprise called "Implementing an AppScan Enterprise-based Web Security Solution" which you can use to plan your enterprise's multiplexed install of AppScan Enterprise.
