According to a report from SkyBox Security, 50% of organizations do not have a vulnerability management program in place. A lack of foresight in this area can put a company at risk for outside web infiltration through exploitation of existing web vulnerabilities. The cybersecurity threat landscape is ever changing, therefore to better secure web applications that reside in a mixture of on premises and cloud environments, IT security professionals should be looking towards automating and augmenting manual penetration testing (pen testing). The best way to do this is with automated web application security tools to keep up with the rapid introduction of new vulnerabilities.
Vulnerability scanning alone simply focuses on security vulnerabilities, however, and does not provide IT security teams the tools they need to track, manage and improve their security posture over time. But vulnerability management software focuses on doing just that -- providing security teams with the much needed visibility and insight to manage and track vulnerabilities from discovery to remediation. That's why Netsparker's web vulnerability scanners integrate with your other vulnerability management tools.
There is no single security solution that can protect an IT ecosystem from all type of hack attacks. Some security tools work to secure a network perimeter. Others focus on vulnerability assessment. So in order to establish a holistic security program, tools with varied functions must be integrated. Those looking to infiltrate your web applications and networks are looking for critical weaknesses and vulnerabilities, therefore having a robust vulnerability management plan in place can help you proactively secure your assets.
When partnered with your vulnerability management software, Netsparker's web application security scanner can feed important scan results to other tools that can then manage the results and help you determine next steps to remediate any issues identified. Netsparker has partnered with multiple vulnerability management software providers, allowing you to integrate our vulnerability scanning tool into your existing system.
