Netsparker is an easy to use and fully automated web application security scanner that uses the advanced Proof-Based ScanningTM technology to identify SQL Injection, Cross-site Scripting (XSS) and thousands of other vulnerabilities in web applications, web services and web APIs. The Netsparker web vulnerability scanner also has built-in security testing tools, reports generator, and can be easily integrated in your SDLC, DevOps and other environments.GET A DEMO
Netsparker automatically exploits the identified security vulnerabilities in a read-only and safe way and also produces a proof of exploit. Therefore you can immediately see the impact of the web application vulnerability and be sure it is not a false positive, so you do not have to waste hours manually verifying the scan results.
Both the on-premises and hosted editions of Netsparker utilize a unique scanning technology that has better coverage and finds more security vulnerabilities than any other web application vulnerability scanners, as proven when tested in head to head independent comparison tests. During a web security scan, Netsparker also checks the web server. It has server configuration checks for open source web servers such as Apache and Nginx which run on Linux, and IIS which runs on Microsoft Windows, to ensure there are no misconfigurations that might lead to security issues.
The primary goal of a web application security scanner is to eliminate the repetitive drudgery of application security testing, leaving you free to use your skills in areas where you make a real difference. Netsparker boasts an arsenal of automated security tools that get straight to the point, providing users with the precise information. It also has its own vulnerability management solution or can be integrated with third party ones so you can automate most of the post-scan processes and ease the vulnerability triaging process.
You need the right security tools to get the job done without an extended learning curve. The Netsparker security scanning solution is just that. It has an intuitive user interface with which you can start scanning your web applications within seconds without requiring access to the source code. Just specify the URL and the protocol (HTTP or HTTPS) and Netsparker will scan it.
Netsparker web application security scanner identified all the direct impact vulnerabilities when tested in third party independent benchmark tests**, thus leading all the other scanners. These results are further proof that the Netsparker scanner has the most advanced and accurate crawling & vulnerability scanning technology, and the highest web vulnerabilities detection rate. It can identity thousands of different security vulnerabilities including DOM XSS, SQL Injection, Local File Inclusion and those listed in the OWASP Top 10 list. So why settle for the second best?

The Netsparker scanning solution has 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 just have to specify the credentials without having to record a login macro. With such automation you can scan 100s & 1000s of websites without wasting hours getting bogged down in configuring the blackbox scanner.
You do not have to manually verify the vulnerabilities the Netsparker scanner identifies during a security 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 and confirming it is not a false positive. 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.
