Automatically Finding Vulnerabilities in Their Custom Web Applications
T4G started using Netsparker to automatically find vulnerabilities and security flaws on their own websites and custom web applications. It all worked very well for them; Netsparker helped uncover some vulnerabilities during the early stages of development, before an update or a web application is used in a live environment.

Scanning A Wide Variety of Web Applications and Web Technologies
T4G has customers from a number of different industry verticals such as retail, hospitality, energy, finance and also government agencies. Even though the majority of the websites they scan are built on Java and run on Apache, with such a varied customer base T4G scans any type of web application and web technology. Their engineers has seen it all.
Identifying Vulnerabilities in Web Applications Before Deployment
Automated web security and vulnerability scanning have evolved in the last few years. Nowadays it is not just about scanning a web application before it is deployed in a live environment, but one has to ensure security is thought for, and the code is secure even during the early stages of development. If security is not thought for during the early stages of development, it might be too expensive or sometimes even impossible to fix a security flaw at a later stage.
Following the best security practices, T4G are a proof that automated scans are indeed needed at different and early stages of development. In fact it is not the first time that Netsparker identified significant vulnerabilities during a routine web security scan of web applications which are still being developed.
