Automating Web Application Security Services

To meet the ever growing needs of its customers, keep on identifying web vulnerabilities such as SQL injection, and be more efficient while still providing an excellent service to its customers, the team of experts at Layers-7 had to automate web application security.

They required an automated web application security scanner that:

  • Is fast and reliable;
  • Can scan websites running on Apache web server;
  • Identifies web application vulnerabilities in web applications built in PHP, .NET and Java;
  • Generate industry standard reports, such as developer and executive reports;
  • Reports no false positives, ensuring that their team can spend their time securing web applications and not verifying false positives.
