Manage application testing, reporting and policies to prevent potential attacks

Research, including that conducted by IBM® X-Force® Research, consistently reveals that web and mobile applications are the most vulnerable attacks. Organizations need to continuously test their software and applications across their entire portfolio early in the development lifecycle. To reduce and build a strong and secure IT ecosystem, testing and verification need to happen as early as possible.

IBM application security testing solutions provide preemptive protection to enhance mobile and web application security, protect applications from malicious use and help you to remediate potential attacks in the future.


  • Improve application security program management and strengthen regulatory compliance efforts
  • Assess software code and web and mobile applications for vulnerabilities
  • Use a single console for managing application testing, reporting and policies
  • Capitalize on industry‐leading testing capabilities that integrate with a range of IBM Security solutions
