An international financial institution such as ING Insurance that has offices all over the world, remote employees, and a sophisticated infrastructure, depends heavily on web applications. Web applications such as internal portals, external portals, life insurance and investment management websites, as well as, online banking web applications are used to share data among all of the corporation's offices and employees.
Web applications are also used by ING customers and other businesses to access their bank accounts and finances.
The above implies that a great focus has to be put on security to protect all this information that is extremely valuable for the institution and its clients.
The IT Security Audit team at ING performs audits to ascertain whether numerous websites and web applications are solid and secure. Most of these web applications are custom built, using a wide variety of commonly used web frameworks as underlying infrastructure.
The need was evident for a solution that could meet the financial institution requirements and that could be implemented seamlessly.
When a company has the need to audit many web applications on a continuous basis, they need to make sure that the right tools are used to detect all web application vulnerabilities possible, to keep malicious hackers out and make sure their customers' money is secure at all times.
The ING EurASIA Audit team chose Netsparker over several other web application security scanners because:

Netsparker enables our team to quickly identify vulnerabilities by launching scans after code gets committed. This is vital in helping us ensure we catch vulnerabilities early in our development process."Read the inFactor
“We like Netsparker not only because it is able to be configured quickly, but also the scans themselves are completed quickly, reliably and without false positives (a large timesaver in and of itself).”Read the Sumeru
