Netsparker Launch False Positive Free Online Web Application Security Scanner

Press Release | Netsparker Enterprise is the new online web application security scanner by Netsparker. It is built on the already proven false positive vulnerability scanning technology that automatically identifies vulnerabilities and security flaws in websites and web applications. Netsparker Enterprise is specifically tailored to help large organizations secure their websites and web applications.

11th March 2015, London – Netsparker Ltd today announced the launch of their new enterprise online service offering Netsparker Enterprise. The new online web application security scanner is built on the already proven false positive free scanning technology of Netsparker Web Application Security Scanner, which already helps Fortune 500 and other world renowned organizations to keep their websites secure.

“Netsparker Enterprise aims to help large organizations address a number of shortcomings they typically encounter while trying to secure their websites,” Ferruh Mavituna, Netsparker CEO.

Problems Large Organizations Encounter

Large organizations typically have hundreds and sometimes even thousands of web applications that are constantly used by their own employees, business partners and customers. Therefore it is impossible for the security team to audit each and every website individually. Many try to build their own in-house custom web application security scanning solutions, though most of them fail at it.

Such in-house solutions typically have a lot of shortcomings and introduce a lot of problems, hence leaving organizations exposed to malicious hack attacks, as can be seen every day on the news. The problem lies within these in-house built and highly customized solutions. Usually they are very difficult to use and not tested, thus making them very unreliable. The costs of building, running and managing them are also very high.

Scale Up Web Application Security

By using Netsparker Enterprise organizations can simultaneously scan hundreds and thousands of websites for vulnerabilities and security flaws. They can also leverage the features and tools of Enterprise Cloud to organize web security scans and keep track of the security state of each individual website, web application and web service in the organization.

When using Netsparker Enterprise large organizations also save on costs. They do not need to hire people to build, test and maintain their own elaborate in-house solution; they can rely on the expertise of the leading web application security experts, Netsparker.

Boost Productivity and Collaboration

Netsparker Enterprise is a web based service and is available 24/7. It allows users to launch new web security scans or check the progress and results of existing ones from anywhere with an internet connection.

Netsparker Enterprise is also a multi-user service allowing all developers, QA team, managers and security professionals from the same organization to login with their own user and collaborate on web application security projects.

The team can use the vulnerability management feature in Netsparker Enterprise to assign open vulnerabilities to developers for fixing, similar to a bug tracking system. Once the developers fix the vulnerability Netsparker Enterprise automatically rescans the target to confirm the fix the developers committed.

Integrate Web Application Security in the Development Environment

Netsparker Enterprise has a web service based API that allows users to trigger web security scans and other actions remotely. The API allows organizations to easily integrate automated web application security scans at every stage of their SDLC (software development lifecycle) and in their development environment.

Take Advantage of the Cloud

Netsparker Enterprise brings along all the advantages of the cloud; no installation, no setup, no maintenance and available 24/7 from anywhere in the world. Getting started is very easy; subscribe and launch as many web application security scans as you like.
