Effectiveness of Automated Web Security Scanners: Netsparker

Mark your calendars: this February 28th 2017, the Netsparker and eLearnSecurity teams will unite to host the technical webinar, Effectiveness of Automated Web Security Scanners. The event – kicking off at 1 PM ET – will be hosted by none other than Netsparker’s Product Architect, CEO, and founder, Ferruh Mavituna.

Automated web app scanners at a glance

Web application scanners are tools used to automatically identify security vulnerabilities in websites, web applications and web services. Scanners are able to look for, detect, and report about technical vulnerabilities such as the ever-present SQL Injection and Cross-Site Scripting (XSS). It does so in a fraction of the time it takes when performed manually, saving IT security teams hundreds of man hours.

Netsparker’s approach to web app security takes the ease of using scanners one step further through Proof-Based Scanning. Once a flaw has been detected, this technology automatically (and safely) tries to exploit the vulnerability to confirm that it’s not just a false positive reading. Thus freeing the team from the drudges of having to double check each identified vulnerability.

Ferruh will also be showing you the Netsparker Web Application Security Scanner and their unique and dead accurate Proof-Based scanning technology at work. And, as usual, it’s best to prepare your questions ahead of time – he’ll be fielding your queries towards the end of the webinar.
