In Netsparker Enterprise web application security scanner, you can configure SMS and email notifications so you and your users can be informed instantly about the status of a web application security scan, or when specific vulnerabilities are detected.
Not all web applications and vulnerabilities have the same criticality. The urgency of fixing a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability on a staging website is different than that of a cross-site scripting vulnerability on a live website.
- The live website needs immediate attention because it is available to the public and attackers can easily find such vulnerabilities and exploit them.
- On the other hand, you might expect to find vulnerabilities on a staging website. After all that is the purpose of having and scanning a staging website for vulnerabilities – to identify any possible vulnerabilities before the code is migrated to a live environment.
The Email and SMS Notifications feature in Netsparker Enterprise allows you to receive notifications about important events. For example, you can select to be notified via SMS when one or more critical vulnerabilities are identified on a live website.
