No matter what your industry, you will often want or need to demonstrate compliance with established web security standards. This may be driven by regulatory requirements, customer and business partner expectations, or internal security policies. Netsparker provides many compliance-oriented reports out-of-the-box to simplify the process.
If you operate in a regulated industry or are seeking information security certification, Netsparker can help you meet web security requirements. To get started, simply run a scan and then select one of the predefined reports to see which vulnerabilities you need to address for your chosen standard. Common regulatory compliance reports provided by Netsparker include PCI DSS, HIPAA, and ISO 27001.
Even if you’ve addressed all the relevant vulnerabilities, having a Netsparker compliance report is only the first step on the road to formal certification. For PCI DSS compliance, which is required for entities that process payment card transactions, Netsparker has teamed up with a PCI Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) to provide one-click PCI DSS certification. That way, you can simply run the official PCI DSS scan from Netsparker and get certified without the hassle of engaging an ASV separately.
To define a baseline for web application security best practices, organizations like OWASP and the SANS Institute maintain lists of the most common web security weaknesses. Netsparker includes reports for the OWASP Top 10 and the SANS Top 25 to provide you with a starting point for demonstrating your web security posture to customers and business partners. While this is not an official certification, saying that your application is, for example, OWASP Top 10 compliant, means that you know about web security and take care to address all the major vulnerabilities.
For many organizations, the OWASP Top 10 is only a starting point for defining more detailed web security requirements. Netsparker provides configurable scan profiles and reporting templates so you can precisely align your security checks and reports to internal security policies. By defining and centrally managing custom scanning and reporting profiles, you can enforce uniform web security standards across the organization and keep your scan results directly comparable across time and between different website groups.
