I’ve long been an advocate of Invicti because I believe it’s the easiest on-demand, do it yourself dynamic security analysis tool.


Continuously scan your web applications and APIs to minimize risk

Web assets are under constant attack from cybercriminals, making continuous external vulnerability scanning critical to minimize the risk of data breaches. Invicti provides a dynamic application security testing (DAST) solution for web vulnerability scanning across entire web environments, including websites, web applications, and APIs:

Invicti Enterprise Recent Scans

Maximize visibility into your attack surface with advanced crawling and discovery

You can’t secure what you don’t know about, so Invicti’s industry-leading scan engine is combined with a built-in web asset discovery service and an advanced crawler. Web apps and APIs identified during discovery, crawling, and manual setup are automatically and safely scanned for hundreds of types of vulnerabilities:

Scale your web application security with the accuracy of proof-based scanning

When dealing with hundreds of apps and thousands of scan results, often from multiple vulnerability scanning tools, deciding where to take action requires accuracy and ruthless prioritization. Invicti uses proof-based scanning to automatically confirm the majority of high-impact vulnerabilities. Confirmed issues have been safely exploited by the scanner, so they cannot be false positives – they are remotely exploitable and you need to address them before they are targeted by malicious hackers:

  • Rely on accurate automation combined with remediation guidance to smoothly scale vulnerability scanning as your application development grows, even with a small security team.
  • Use the same scanning process to cover any new website or application that can run in a modern browser, regardless of the specific technologies or frameworks. This includes JavaScript-heavy single-page applications (SPAs).
  • Use Invicti in a deployment model that suits your business and growth, whether cloud-based (SaaS), on-premises, or a combination of the two.

What’s the difference between a web vulnerability scanner and a network vulnerability scanner?

A web vulnerability scanner runs security checks in the application layer, sending HTTP requests to test websites, apps, and APIs for vulnerabilities. Network vulnerability scanners are used to probe external and internal networks for open ports and detect applications and operating systems with known vulnerabilities.

What is an external vulnerability scanner?

External vulnerability scanners are cybersecurity tools that test the external attack surface of a system or app. For websites, web applications, and APIs, external vulnerability scanning is done using dynamic application security testing (DAST) tools.

Should I use external vulnerability scanning or penetration testing?

Ideally, you should use both types of testing. External vulnerability scanners are automated tools that can test thousands of targets and run fully autonomously if needed. Manual penetration testing by security experts is far slower and more expensive but can find advanced security vulnerabilities that scanners might miss.

Can Invicti find known vulnerabilities like CVEs?

Yes, Invicti can find both known and new vulnerabilities in web applications. The core security scanner comes with hundreds of security checks to identify exploitable weaknesses by safely simulating attacks and analyzing app reactions. This is accompanied by a vulnerability database of products with known vulnerabilities (CVEs) that are also reported when identified during a scan.
