IT systems grow and change over time, and you need security solutions that adapt with your business. From network security, to risk management, vulnerability management, identity management, and malware detection, a complete security program with continuous monitoring is a multifaceted undertaking -- even for a small business.

Business is moving to the web and attackers know this: according to the latest Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report, more data breaches begin with a web application exploit than in any other way, hence why cloud security has become vital. Netsparker’s online web application security scanner solution can help your websites and cloud based web applications buck that trend.

Navigating the Market

You know you need a scalable web vulnerability assessment and management tool. You are probably considering a security scanner with a cloud software-as-a-service model, such as Qualys Web Application Scanning, or other Qualys competitors such as WhiteHat Security, Rapid7 InsightAppSec, IBM AppScan or the web application checks in the Tenable.io security suite. It's a crowded market of security providers, and you may be wondering exactly which web vulnerability management solution is the best fit for your goals.

You need a web application security testing tool and solution that fits your environment now, and continues to fit as you grow and your web applications, web services and web APIs evolve. You also need a web vulnerability scanner that provides the most accurate results no matter what web technologies you use.

Platform Independence

You need a website vulnerability scanner that supports a broad range of technologies. Netsparker supports your business no matter what technologies your IT infrastructure and web application environment use. From legacy applications to rich HTML5, Netsparker maps out the entire application and gives you a clear vulnerability picture.

The Scalability of a Cloud Platform

By every definition, Netsparker's cloud platform makes scaling easy.

Environment Size

How many applications do you have now? How many will your business have in the future? We grow with you. The console allows the security team to define, run, and report upon scans for single applications, or for thousands.

Vulnerability Scope

Do you need to do a full vulnerability scan, thorough web penetration testing, or are you worried about doing risk mitigation against one or two bleeding-edge security holes taking the threat landscape by storm? No matter what, Netsparker's cloud edition makes it easy to define the right scan and the right scope.

Growing With Your Team

Our cloud platform grows and changes with your security team. The management software can be accessed from a secure HTTPS console, and managers can change staff and access permissions easily.

The Accuracy of Proof Based Scanning™

Only Netsparker can give you the advantage of Proof Based Scanning™.

The results of our scans go beyond a simple vulnerability assessment because every single result returned by our web application security scanner comes with proof of exploit. In the scan console and in the detailed scan reports, your security team will see the exact content of the HTTP request that exploited the vulnerability in the web application, as well as exactly what data was exposed.

Save Time at Every Stage

Instead of spending hours manually verifying results and setting aside false positives, analysts can see the exploit, understand the risk quickly, make intelligent determinations of the priority of each finding, and move on to other high-value tasks.

The development team can also quickly hone in on the vulnerabilities in the web applications and write more secure source code.
