Web Application Asset Discovery Matters

Forgotten and outdated web applications are a common culprit of successful hack attacks. As businesses grow they need to use an asset discovery and management solution to make sure all web applications are scanned and secure.

You know IT asset discovery is important: how can you keep your IT environment secure unless you know what is in it? You understand the importance of network asset discovery and cataloging: how many IP address ranges and hosts you have, what operating systems they run, what services each network device is supposed to run.

But, did you know that keeping an asset inventory of the web applications on your organization's network and the internet is just as important to your information security posture? According to the most recent Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report, nothing causes more data breaches than web application security issues. To have an accurate picture of your vulnerability posture, you need to know the full extent of your web presence.

Netsparker Radar brings the power of web application asset discovery and asset management to you, making it easy for you to do vulnerability assessments.

Crawl the Internet, Find Your Business's Web Footprint

Though you may think you know what web applications your business has, scanning your entire range of IP addresses for web applications on a regular basis is a critical security control. After all, there may be some web applications that are accidentally left out of the scope of regular web penetration testing and updates, including abandoned test beds or ones missed due to record keeping errors. There may be "shadow IT" -- unauthorized software or devices that employees have placed on the corporate network without approval, that add web portals and services that IT Security personnel have neither seen nor assessed.

Netsparker Radar takes the guesswork out of this. We continually scan the entire Internet to gather a database of web applications, gathering asset information in real time and compiling it to our database. The Netsparker web application security solution gives you the power of Netsparker Radar: as soon as you register for Netsparker Enterprise, Netsparker Radar can take your business email address and suggest related websites.

Beyond Discovery to Asset Management

The best catalog of web applications would not be useful without a clear way to take action. Netsparker Radar provides more than just ongoing discovery of your business's web applications. It shows new and existing findings in a secure online portal, with extensive filtering capabilities that allow you to configure a search that fits your needs, and easily send the information to the web vulnerability scanner to be scanned.

The portal also allows you to configure exactly how Netsparker Radar searches for applications that may belong to your business. The Service Discovery Settings functionality allows you to perform asset discovery by IP address, top level domain, second level domain, and organization name, ensuring that you know about any relevant websites that Netsparker's spiders find.

The Most Accurate Web Application Vulnerability Scanning

Netsparker Radar also makes it easy for your IT security team to scan the applications it finds, giving you a quick, clear view of what web security risks each application poses.

Whether the underlying web server is based on Linux, Microsoft Windows, or another operating system, Netsparker can identify common misconfigurations in web servers thanks to its web server security scanner module. Whether the application's business logic is written in a server-side language like PHP, Java, Python, or Ruby, or your business has begun to shift more strongly to client-side JavaScript functionality, Netsparker can identify user input fields and find SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), remote and local file inclusions and thousands of other vulnerabilities.

And, thanks to Netsparker's Proof Based Scanning™ technology, you know that every security vulnerability the scanning solution finds is real and exploitable, and you have the proof of exploit right in the Netsparker console.
