Netsparker: Your Best Alternative to Pentest Tool

Penetration testing tools focus mostly on network security. To secure web applications you need a solid pentest tools alternative. You need Netsparker, an automated & scalable web security solution that can integrate in your secure SDLC.

I’ve long been an advocate of Netsparker because I believe it’s the easiest on-demand, do it yourself dynamic security analysis tool.

More data breaches begin with a web application exploit than in any other way, according to the most recent DBIR. This means that your business's arsenal of penetration testing software is incomplete without a web vulnerability scanner. Netsparker Web Application Security Scanner is that tool you need.

Popular open source security tools like nmap and Metasploit Framework can be useful for network discovery and exploitation, but they are not purpose-built for web application security testing. Only a pentesting tool made to assess web applications like Netsparker will give you an accurate picture of that part of your attack surface.

Find What Attackers Are Exploiting

During web penetration testing, your cyber security team needs to find the vulnerabilities that real-world attackers are exploiting. From SQL injection, to cross-site scripting (XSS), to the vulnerabilities listed in the OWASP top 10, Netsparker helps you find web application security issues so you can fix them before the attackers exploit them.

Platform Independence

Your web penetration testing tools need to adapt to your environment, and Netsparker does exactly that.

Netsparker identifies vulnerabilities in web applications regardless of the technology they are built with. Whether the backend is written in Python, Ruby, Java, PHP, or any other language, whether the application is based on a popular open source project like WordPress or Joomla!, or was custom-built for the business, Netsparker can crawl it and identify critical flaws in it.

Netsparker is also a web server security software. It checks that your HTTPS / HTTP implementation is secure, and whether your web servers are running on a Linux or Microsoft Windows operating system, our vulnerability assessment solution identifies common misconfigurations that could lead to security breaches.

Proof of Exploit

Exploit lies at the heart of pentesting, and our exclusive Proof Based Scanning™ technology supports that goal. Vulnerabilities identified by the Netsparker Web Application Security Scanner come with a proof of exploit: Netsparker automatically exploits identified vulnerabilities in a safe and read only manner, proving they are not false positives.

Unmatched Accuracy

A recent web vulnerability scanner comparison test by independent security researcher Shay Chen proves it: Netsparker is the most accurate of the web security tools on the market. In a baseline designed to reflect real-world security issues, only Netsparker found every vulnerability in the test bed, including very hard variants of SQL Injection and DOM Cross-Site Scripting (DOM XSS) vulnerabilities. And, it did so without reporting a single false positive.

Red Teams and Blue Teams Benefit

Netsparker's dead accurate results benefit security professionals on both the red team and the blue team.


For those focused on attacking web applications and network security flaws, having proof of exploit for each identified vulnerability can help penetration testers further analyse the network and other entry points more quickly. More accurate scan results mean that a red team can pivot more quickly into manual exploration with tools like nessus, wireshark and other command-line free open source pentesting tools found on distros like Kali Linux.


For those focused on securing the web application environment, the proof of exploit means that Netsparker's results help builders zoom in on the insecure code and develop fixes faster.

In my years as a security specialist I’ve used many different tools for DAST and Netsparker has consistently been at the forefront of both experience and results. It’s simple to use without sacrificing capability.
Scott HelmeSecurity Researcher and Entrepreneur,

You’ve invested a lot of resources into creating the best websites and web applications for your business and you want them to be secure. An antivirus or a firewall can't protect your web assets. You need special software that works with the web.

Leading-edge technology
You want the best solution for your web assets and Netsparker is the best. Netsparker's Proof-Based ScanningTM technology can prove identified vulnerabilities are real and not false positives, saving security teams hundreds of man-hours.
Automation and integration
With Netsparker, you can automate and integrate with CI/CD and other systems found in the SDLC and DevOps environment. This allows your experts to focus on what's most important and eliminate security issues at the earliest stages.
Reliability and trust
Netsparker is a solution you can trust and constantly top rated in 3rd party benchmarks. Its engine is dead accurate and gives you all the information that you need to fix security issues.

Web Scanner Comparisons

In the 2018 independent web vulnerability scanners comparison, Netsparker was the only scanner to identify all vulnerabilities and to report zero false positives.

I had the opportunity to compare external expertise reports with Netsparker ones. Netsparker was better, finding more breaches. It’s a very good product for me.


Perry Mertens

As opposed to other web application scanners, Netsparker is very easy to use. An out of the box installation can detect more vulnerabilities than any other scanner.
