We bough Cenzic almost a year ago and thus far are happy with the product.
Having said that, there really is no replacement for a well seasoned
penetration tester. I did not try Appscan so I cannot speak to how they

Subject: Cenzic Hailstorm vs Rational AppScan from IBM


We are currently evaluating two web vulnerability scanning products:  Cenzic
Hailstrom and IBM's appscan.

Has anyone ever used Hailstorm before?  If so, do you like their product?
Did you run a comparison against Appscan?

Cenzic seems to be a new player to this market.  Their product seems fairly
robust, but we are a little unsure of it.  Our team has used Appscan in the
past, but we are open to change.
