Netsparker Desktop is available as a Windows application and is an easy-to-use web application security scanner that uses the advanced Proof-Based Scanning
Netsparker automatically exploits the identified vulnerabilities in a read-only and safe way, and also produces a proof of exploitation. Therefore you can immediately see the impact of the vulnerability and do not have to manually verify it.
Netsparker’s unique vulnerability scanning technology has better coverage and finds more vulnerabilities than any other scanner, as proven when tested in head to head independent comparison tests.
The primary goal of a web application security scanner is to eliminate the repetitive drudgery of web security testing, leaving you free to use your skills in areas where you make a real difference. Netsparker Desktop boasts an arsenal of automated security testing weapons that get straight to the point, providing users with the precise information.
Netsparker web application security scanner identified all the direct impact vulnerabilities when tested in third party independent benchmark tests**, thus leading all other scanners. These results are further proof that the Netsparker scanners have the most advanced and dead accurate crawling & vulnerability scanning technology, and the highest web vulnerabilities detection rate. So why settle for the second best?

Netsparker scanners have a unique self-fine-tuning technology. You do not have to configure URL rewrite rules or custom 404 error pages. And when scanning a password protected website you have to simply specify the credentials without the need to record any login macros. With such automation you can scan 100s & 1000s of websites without wasting hours getting bogged down in configuring the scanners.
You do not have to manually verify the vulnerabilities the Netsparker scanner identify during a scan because it automatically exploit detected vulnerabilities in a safe and read-only way. The scanner also generates a proof of exploit highlighting its impact. Netsparker will alert you If a vulnerability cannot be verified automatically.
This is probably the best web-app tool that I have ever seen. Of course, I am not a hacker... Really :) But I have reviewed some penetration test results and other tools, and of course I know a lot of hackers, so I can say that your tool covers all of the most important things.

The software is an important part of my security strategy which is in progress toward other services at OECD. And I find it better than external expertise. I had, of course, the opportunity to compare expertise reports with Netsparker ones. Netsparker was better, finding more breaches.
This is nice to have as it recap what Netsparker is all about. Also, Grant Thornton is the fifth largest accountancy firm in the world, so worth having them.
When you have to scan hundreds of web applications and identify exploitable vulnerabilities on all of them, Netsparker is THE essential easy to use tool that provides professional reports with clear explanations and steps to remedy them.
When we were evaluating web application security scanners, Netsparker was the scanner that identified most vulnerabilities without requiring any configuration changes. It also identified several SQL Injection and Cross-site Scripting vulnerabilities that other scanners did not identify.
