Netsparker Web Application Security Scanner

Additional Info

Company size (employees)50 to 99
Type of solutionSoftware


The Netsparker web application security solution uses a proprietary Proof-Based Scanning technology that automatically verifies the identified vulnerabilities by exploiting them in a safe and read-only way. Upon exploiting them the scanner generates a Proof of Exploit, proving the identified vulnerabilities are real and not false positives. Since most of the post-scan processes are being automated businesses can scale up their web application security efforts. In fact, when the Proof-Based Scanning technology is paired with the built-in workflow tools of Netsparker, enterprises have a closed-loop web application security solution suite that allows them to ensure the long-term security of all their web applications from the early stages of development until they are in the production environment.

Netsparker also has a fully documented REST API that allows businesses to integrate automated web application security scanning in their SDLC and DevOps processes, thus can identify vulnerabilities even during the early stages of development.

How we are different

• Users do not have to waste hours manually verifying the scanner’s findings and hunting down false positives,
• Users do not need to have the technical expertise to use Netsparker since the vulnerabilities are being automatically verified,
• There is no place for human error. When users have to manually verify the scanner’s findings, if they do not have the required technical expertise they might be unable to reproduce an issue, and conclude it is a false positive.
