According to a recent report by Positive Technologies, 77% of tested web applications exhibit a security vulnerability. In addition, according to Verizon's 2018 Data Breach Report, not only do the majority of outside attacks occur via web application, but 68% of those breaches took months--or longer--to discover.

Web application vulnerabilities can pose a serious threat to the safety and privacy of users' data, including financial and confidential business and personal information. In order for users to be confident in the security of their sensitive information, companies must have a solid vulnerability management plan in place in which they do frequent security testing, one that works in real-time, not on a delay.

Netsparker, a vulnerability assessment and scanning tool, can help you automate penetration testing of web applications to automatically identify security vulnerabilities before your company falls victim to a hack.

Web Vulnerability Assessment Tools Can Help with Your Security Management Plans

The security testing you do with vulnerability assessment software enables you to easily identify any weaknesses in your web applications, web services, and web APIs, which may be either on-premises or in the cloud. There are many testing tools available that allow you to automate penetration testing and vulnerability scanning. A Vulnerability assessment software such as Netsparker can run comprehensive security testing automatically to identify flaws and threat risks in web applications, so they can be addressed promptly by your IT team.

Even though web security is always a priority, most IT teams do not have the dedicated resources available to constantly and consistently monitor the threat landscape. Vulnerability assessment software can help shoulder that burden.
