All the different reports security vendors and independent research organizations publish highlight the fact that the majority of websites and web applications on the internet have vulnerabilities. While some security issues might not be exploitable, many have critical vulnerabilities that put their users’ sensitive data at risk.
That's why IT teams and security professionals need to ensure that their organization has a proactive security assessment plan in place, regardless. The first step in building and maintaining secure web applications and cloud services is to employ a reliable and thorough web application scanning tool such as the Netsparker solution. Netsparker is a dead accurate security scanner that works fast and thoroughly crawls and scans websites for known and zero day vulnerabilities. It also scans the web server the application is hosted on, and checks it for security misconfigurations.
Netsparker identifies and reports security vulnerabilities such as Blind SQL injection, Cross site scripting (XSS) and Remote File Inclusions in web applications, web services and web APIs. Netsparker is able to thoroughly crawl all types of legacy and modern custom web applications, regardless of the platform and technology that they are built with. The same applies for web servers. Whether you are using Microsoft Windows IIS, or Apache and Nginx on Linux, Netsparker can scan it and identify possible security issues.
The Netsparker web vulnerability scanner is available in two editions, either as an on premises Microsoft Windows application that features built-in penetration testing and reporting tools, or as an online scalable service to allow you to scan hundreds or thousands of websites with just a few keystrokes. The online edition of the vulnerability scanner is available as a hosted service in the cloud, but also as a self-hosted solution in private clouds.
Netsparker has an API that allows you to initiate new web vulnerability scans automatically via integrations. Also, it supports further team collaboration using enterprise-level workflow tools, and also its own vulnerability management solution, allowing your team to easily share information in order to remediate identified issues faster.
Even though nobody likes reports, they are a vital part of every business, including web security. The Netsparker dashboard gives you an overview of the the security posture of all your web applications. It also allows you to get an overview of how your developers are progressing, in terms of fixing security vulnerabilities, how long it takes them and who is introducing them.
You can also generate reports from the data in the dashboard. You can create any type of technical, executive and compliance reports, including OWASP Top 10, HIPAA and PCI DSS vulnerability scan reports.
Netsparker employs the exclusive Proof-Based TechnologyTM, which automatically verifies the identified vulnerabilities, proving they are real and not false positives. Hence Netsparker generates dead accurate vulnerability scan results.
The Proof-based Scanning TechnologyTM works by exploiting identified vulnerabilities in a read-only and safe manner. It also produces a proof of exploitation, which eliminates the need for manual verification. This saves you time and valuable workforce resources. Identifying and then working to repair your web vulnerabilities before someone else finds them or exploits them helps you keep your organization and its assets secure.
A complete vulnerability management program considers all of the potential issues that could expose your business data or that of your users. See why our clients, leaders across many industries, trust our security scanning tool to identify SQL Injection, Cross-site Scripting (XSS) and other vulnerabilities in their web applications.
