Just about every web application has a security vulnerability that can be easily exploited by bad actors. Without robust web application security, users' and cardholder data — including sensitive financial and personal information — is at risk of being leaked. That's why it's so important to actively try to mitigate your website's risk of attack. One effective way to cut down on security vulnerabilities is to utilize top-of-the-line web security scanning software, such as vulnerability scanners.
These automated online web security scanners can help locate security holes in your web applications or web services automatically, so you'll know as soon as there's a security issue.
The best offense is a good defense, as the saying goes. This holds true for cyber security too. Vulnerability scanners consistently monitor the online threat landscape, flagging threat risks so your IT team can address them as soon as possible instead of playing catch up once a security hole has already been exploited. Regular vulnerability assessments with a vulnerability scanner is one of the most important ways you can keep your web server secure. One of the reasons it's so valuable is that vulnerability scanners drastically cut down the time it takes to check websites for security issues. This makes it possible to scale up your online security as your website or web application grows.
The world of website vulnerability scanners is vast, and includes tools like like Detectify, and Qualys Freescan. But anyone serious about online security should have Netsparker as their vulnerability scanner of choice.
It also scans the web server for possible security misconfigurations, including SSL / TLS issues.
