Announcing the Invicti White Paper: Flexible Deployment Options with Invicti Scan Agents

Invicti provides flexible deployment options to align vulnerability scanning with internal development and testing structures. This technical white paper highlights the challenges of dynamic application security testing in complex environments and includes deployment scenarios to show how Invicti scan agents can be used in a wide variety of situations.

Announcing the Invicti White Paper: Flexible Deployment Options with Invicti Scan Agents

Enterprise web application environments can be as complex as the organizations themselves, which makes deploying automated security testing solutions a major challenge. This technical white paper shows how Invicti’s flexible deployment options make it possible to align vulnerability scanning with internal development and testing structures. Beyond an outline of the challenges and benefits, the paper also showcases specific deployment scenarios, such as scanning containerized web assets in dynamic cloud environments.

A common misconception related to dynamic application security testing (DAST) is that it is limited only to simple application environments and architectures. While this may have been true for early DAST products, decentralized Invicti deployments with internal scanning agents can provide consistent vulnerability scanning results with centralized visibility in a wide variety of environments.

By decoupling the scanning engine from the management and reporting systems, you can deploy Invicti’s industry-leading DAST capabilities to match your application development infrastructure and integrate them into existing workflows. Highlights from this technical white paper include:

  • The challenges of ensuring consistent and accurate vulnerability scanning and enforcing web security policies in distributed and highly dynamic application environments.
  • How Invicti Enterprise uses scan agents to combine distributed vulnerability scanning with centralized security management.
  • The benefits of deploying Invicti with scan agents, such as maximized security testing coverage, centralized visibility, improved operating efficiency, and automatic scaling.
  • Typical use cases and deployment scenarios with network diagrams, including a multinational setup and containerized web services in the cloud.
