LeoVegas Gaming Group offers casino, live casino, and sports betting under several global and UK brands. LeoVegas is a leading online casino operator with a focus on mobile gaming technologies.
Operating in the regulated online and mobile casino industry requires close attention to cybersecurity. LeoVegas relies on its websites and applications to provide gaming services while securely processing user data and financial transactions, so a vulnerability in any of these could mean financial losses, reputational damage, or even legal consequences. Ensuring web application security is a critical requirement for the company.
At the same time, LeoVegas operates in a fast-paced and competitive industry where frequent application changes and updates are vital for success. Prior to adopting Netsparker, vulnerability scans could take hours to complete and were not fully integrated with the development process, making it harder for security to keep pace with application development. With high-value data and regulatory compliance at stake, compromising on security is not an option, so a new approach to web application security testing was needed.
After trying many tools on the market, LeoVegas chose Netsparker for its accuracy, performance, and deployment flexibility. Netsparker offered a strong combination of vital features, notably out-of-the-box integration with tools already used in the software development pipeline and fully trustworthy vulnerability testing results with Proof-Based Scanning™. LeoVegas built Netsparker into its CI/CD pipeline, integrating vulnerability testing and management into its existing development automation and issue tracking systems to streamline security testing and remediation.
The ability to optimize scans and customize the deployment model was also important to meet the company’s workflow and performance requirements. LeoVegas used manually deployed scan agents to ensure efficient and scalable security testing across multiple locations around the world. With vulnerability testing during development being focused on checking incremental changes, the company’s security experts took advantage of Netsparker’s customizability to optimize these recurring scans for maximum coverage and shorter scan times.
By feeding Netsparker’s confirmed scan results into its CI/CD pipeline, LeoVegas was able to streamline security testing. With optimised deployments and scan settings, scanning takes less time, while automatically confirmed vulnerability results go directly to the developers for maximum work efficiency. On top of that, Netsparker’s rich set of built-in reports provides stakeholders with full visibility into vulnerability management and the current security compliance status.
Thanks to Netsparker, application security testing at LeoVegas can now keep up with the pace of development, allowing the company to quickly and securely build new functionality to stay on top of its game.

"As opposed to other web application scanners we used, Netsparker is very easy to use and does not require a lot of configuring. An out of the box installation of Netsparker Web Application Security Scanner can detect more vulnerabilities than any other web application..."Read the ING
“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
