While today’s malicious attackers pursue a variety of goals, they share a preferred channel of attack—the millions of custom web, mobile, and cloud applications companies deploy to serve their customers. AppSpider dynamically assesses these applications for vulnerabilities across all modern technologies, provides tools that speed remediation, and monitors applications for changes. Keep your applications safe and secure—now and moving forward.
In today’s world, highly accurate automated web application scanning is a complex thing, but it does exist. What characteristics should you look for in a scanner to give you more coverage, greater accuracy and ease of use? In this paper, we describe the requirements that we think are the most important when selecting a scanner and some of the techniques you can use to get the most out of your evaluation period.

Dynamic application security testing (DAST) is the process of systematically analyzing an application to uncover weaknesses from the outside in, just as an attacker would see it. This enables you to get a realistic view of the exploitable vulnerabilities in your application. With today’s sophisticated and complex applications, now more than ever, it is important to choose the right vendors. You need a partner capable of performing effective testing against your modern applications with a comprehensive set of application attacks.
Rapid7’s research and product teams keep up with the latest application security attacks and best practices, so you don’t have to. With InsightAppSec and AppSpider, you can go way beyond the OWASP Top 10 to test for 93 attack types and best practices; you can also create custom checks to address issues and risks that are custom to your environment.
With the technology landscape rapidly evolving, Microsoft foresaw that the homegrown solution it had previously relied upon for application security would soon struggle to keep pace with modern applications with rich, dynamic clients and numerous APIs on the back-end. So the team undertook an extensive, thorough evaluation that spanned several months and settled on AppSpider as one of its Web App Vulnerability Scanners, based in large part on the product’s roadmap towards being able to handle complex application ecosystems that have rich clients and RESTful APIs.
