Today we are happy to announce an important update to our Netsparker Enterprise product. From today, all Netsparker Enterprise users can enable two-factor authentication to add an extra layer of security to their Netsparker Enterprise account. We have also included some additional improvements in this update which are outlined in this post below.

Two-Factor Authentication in Netsparker Enterprise

Your Netsparker Enterprise account contains sensitive information about your websites and web applications, e.g. a 'to do' list of vulnerabilities that could still be exploited, etc. This is exactly the type of information that you do not want to end up in the wrong hands, therefore, ensuring the security of your sensitive data in Netsparker Enterprise account is a top priority.

We added two-factor authentication support in Netsparker Enterprise to help you further protect your information. Therefore incase your password is ever stolen or guessed, the attacker still cannot get access to your sensitive data as they will also need a one-time code. This one-time code is only generated via an application running on your mobile device. Follow our guide to setup two-factor authentication on Netsparker Enterprise.

Other Netsparker Enterprise Improvements

Ability to resend invitation emails: We added a button next to each invited user in the Netsparker Enterprise dashboard so the account administrator can resend the invitation email should the user fail to received the first invitation email.
