With the Netsparker Enterprise web application security scanner, you can configure SMS and Email notifications so that you and your users are instantly informed about the status of a web application security scan or when specific vulnerabilities are detected by it.
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. Attackers can easily find vulnerabilities on such websites 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.
