Viewing Recent Technologies

This document is for:
Invicti Enterprise On-Demand, Invicti Enterprise On-Premises

All detected technologies discovered in recent web application scans are displayed on the Recent Technologies page.

Using outdated technologies introduces serious risks and can pave the way for attackers to exploit vulnerabilities in order to induce harm to your system. That means even if your application has no vulnerabilities, the application will not be secure if it uses even a single vulnerable external library.

  • So, Invicti can track and report on issues to help you secure your third-party components, such as JavaScript libraries and off-the-shelf web applications, on your website.
  • These issues can be out-of-date technologies or vulnerabilities.
  • Invicti can identify these problems thanks to its vulnerability database package.

The Recent Technologies displays all technology issues identified by Invicti.
