London, UK, 8 January 2014 – Mavituna Security Ltd announced today that it has changed its name to Netsparker Ltd. The new name reflects the company’s vision to embark on the next steps of reaching new markets with a stronger brand for their Netsparker Web Application Security Scanner.

Mavituna Security started in 2009 to market the results of a software project by Ferruh Mavituna, Netsparker Ltd CEO. Mr Mavituna’s vision was to help security professionals, penetration testers and developers circumvent the process of manually verifying the results from automated security tools by developing a full automated false positive free web vulnerability scanner. This vision brought the Netsparker Web Application Security Scanner to life.

Thanks to its new and innovative approach towards automated web security scanning and vulnerability detection, the Netsparker Web Application Security Scanner has earned its place among the leading web vulnerability scanners and today is used by thousands of security professionals and developers around the globe.

Netsparker Web Application Security Scanner has gained a lot of popularity in the web security industry because it enables security professionals and developers to automate much more of their work while still identifying vulnerabilities and security issues in their web applications that could leave them and their business exposed,” said Ferruh Mavituna, Netsparker CEO. “Now is the right time to take our company to the next level and reach new markets. The company name change was the next natural step for a much stronger and recognizable brand in the web application security industry,” continued Mr Mavituna.
