Outdated libraries and frameworks used in long-forgotten web applications can provide attackers with easy entry points into your web infrastructure but keeping track of all of these versions on a large scale is challenging. Netsparker automatically detects all versions of technologies, frameworks, and libraries used by scanned applications. Netsparker has a built-in Technologies Dashboard and uses a passive notification model to report when the technology used becomes outdated and thus vulnerable.
In addition to improving web application security, discovering all your web technologies can help you manage your infrastructure and reduce administration costs. Clear reports make it easy to determine which components need to be upgraded, which must stay but need special care to avoid vulnerable features, and which are no longer used and can be removed from your systems.
