Cover all your in-house and third-party web apps and APIs
An accurate web vulnerability scanner is a crucial security tool to probe your entire attack surface and fix security flaws before malicious hackers can find and exploit them. Invicti Enterprise provides an on-demand SaaS platform for running cloud-based vulnerability tests across all your web applications and APIs. In addition to identifying vital OWASP Top 10 security vulnerabilities such as SQL injections and cross-site scripting (XSS), Invicti also protects your web server by checking for misconfigurations. The security scanner also checks for security issues in any third-party products, including open-source PHP-based CMS solutions like WordPress. As a dynamic application security testing (DAST) solution, Invicti can check for website vulnerabilities regardless of the back-end technologies powering your websites, applications, and APIs.
Fix issues faster by integrating web application scanning into DevOps
The real goal of vulnerability scanning is remediation, and that means reporting security issues to developers. In large enterprise environments with thousands of websites, applications, and API endpoints, the most efficient way to do this is to integrate website security scanning into your software development life cycle (SDLC) to create a DevSecOps ecosystem. Unlike many other vulnerability scanning tools, Invicti is specifically designed to be used in such workflows, with an industry-leading set of built-in integrations and a full internal API for custom deployments. Extensive automation includes the ability to create bug tickets from scan results directly in popular issue trackers and to trigger scans from CI/CD tools. You can also integrate with web application firewalls (WAFs) to temporarily block attacks until a vulnerability is fixed.
Eliminate noise and get rapid results with automated vulnerability confirmations
What is a web vulnerability scanner?
A web vulnerability scanner is an automatic tool that examines websites and web applications from the outside and tests them for common security vulnerabilities like cross-site scripting (XSS), SQL injection, server-side request forgery (SSRF), and misconfigurations. Web vulnerability scanners are classified as dynamic application security testing (DAST) tools and are crucial for finding and fixing web security weaknesses before malicious hackers can exploit them.
Who needs to use web vulnerability scanning?
Periodic web vulnerability scanning is a vital part of ensuring cybersecurity for any organization that runs websites, web applications, or APIs. In the past, vulnerability scanning was often performed only sporadically as part of penetration testing or vulnerability assessment. With most sizeable businesses now running large web environments that are frequently updated, regular vulnerability scanning is a major part of maintaining a good security posture.
Is a web vulnerability scanner the same as a network scanner?
Web vulnerability scanners such as Invicti are used to test websites, web applications, and API endpoints for vulnerabilities that malicious users could exploit using a web browser or another tool communicating over HTTP. Network scanners such as nmap are a different class of tools, used to probe networks for open ports to find vulnerable services and systems. A network vulnerability scanner is not designed to detect application vulnerabilities such as cross-site scripting (XSS) or SQL injection.
Is vulnerability scanning legal?
Any type of active scanning where the scanner sends probes or mock attacks to the asset being tested requires the permission of the owner. Organizations can and should run vulnerability scans on their own web environments (or entitle a third party to do it), but scanning a website, web application, or any other computer system without the owner’s knowledge and permission is illegal. In some jurisdictions, any unauthorized security testing (including using a vulnerability scanner) may be treated as a cyberattack, regardless of the ethical motivation.
