About Netsparker

Netsparker web application security solution automatically identifies XSS (cross-site scripting), SQL Injection and various other vulnerabilities and security flaws in all modern and legacy websites, web applications and web services. PoCs (proof of concepts) are produced to ensure they are not false positives, eliminating the need for users to double check vulnerabilities. Netsparker finds and reports on every type of web application, regardless of the platform or technology they were built with.

Netsparker offers built-in enterprise workflow tools that allow users to scan from 500 to 1000+ web applications at once. Users can configure every detail of the security scan including attack options, scan policies, HTTP options, authentication options, URL rewrite rules, and more. The solution's web service based REST API allows users to remotely trigger web vulnerability scans anywhere, and anytime. Organizations can also integrate automated security scans in their development environment, and launch vulnerability scans throughout all stages of the software development lifecycle.

Netsparker enables administrators to add multiple team members as users and assign specific access privileges, allowing them to collaborate and share their findings with the entire team. The dashboard allows users to keep track of the security of each web application at a glance, with correlated trending reports to help users monitor the productivity and quality of work done by developers.

Netsparker is the only end-to-end web application security solution that lets you scale and automate your web security program. The world's largest companies trust Netsparker with their web application security.

    NetSparker - Security Vulnerabilty Scanning Tool and Helper

    Netsparker is comparatively cheaper, and you can bargain i believe, compare to other tools like Accunetix etc. We compare a couple of them and decided this.

    Pros

    This tool has both web and desktop versions, with some licensing limitations. It scans your website, for issues and reports the issues and ways to fix them, online can leave it to run from cloud and do your work.

    Their pricing is not that high.

    Cons

    The desktop version when run on your system, it slows down everything in your system, so better to use the cloud base one. But these two versions have some difference i think. But overall we were happier with the package, but later as we did not need much, we did not renew it further.

    I use Netsparker as a Consultant for my clients. I'm very satisfied about the product and how this software help our client to check the security level of the web applications. We also help our clients to build a remediation plan (through the report of Netsparker is very easy and quick perform that task) and through Netsparker checks that all the remediations implemented are in place

    Pros

    I like Netsparker because is very easy to use, but at the same time has a lot of options that allow an expert user to customize the level of scanning. Also make authenticated scan is very easy (several options are available). Report templates are different and cover all your needs.

    Cons

    When do concurrent scans it consumes a lot of resources.

    Response from Netsparker

    Thank you for your review of Netsparker, this is much appreciated. We are glad to hear the software satisfies your and your clients' needs.

    We are required to run weekly vulnerability scans on many of our production websites and we try to use Netsparker to do these scans. We can schedule when the scans will run and they usually do run. The problem is, if the scan has a problem it must be canceled, otherwise it will never finish and no report will ever be generated.

    Pros

    Netsparker comes with an automation API so it is possible to include it as part of a Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) system. It usually works but not always.

    Cons

    There is almost no documentation about how to use the product. You are expected to open a support ticket and ask how to do some of simplest things and it usually take a day to get a response back from support. Often the response is, "We don't support that", or "We don't have a sample that does that". I one time asked for .Net Framework sample code to pull a report from Netsparker and the answer I got was "Go toe the GUI and select these buttons. The report will download." The problem was I needed to download the reports problematically. Other times I asked for .Net samples and was given Python code. They are the same, correct?

    Response from Netsparker

    Hello,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    I am sorry to hear you have encountered such issues. Rest assured that this is not the norm, hence why I am personally reaching out to you.
