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.
There is a major shift happening right now, and it's something no company can afford to ignore today. In this whitepaper, we outline why the solution to staying fast, staying competitive, and staying secure is shifting the responsibility of application security left in the software development lifecycle (SDLC).
What characteristics should you look for to give you greater accuracy and ease of use in securing modern web apps? This buyer's guide outlines the 15 key features and capabilities to consider for security buyers looking to adopt or migrate to a DAST solution.
Despite your best intentions, chances are good that your application is going live with dangerous security flaws. But some application security solutions are able to address modern applications. With a little bit of analysis and the right solution, your developers can continue to release state-of-the-art modern applications and you can confirm that your solution is reliable and effective in assessing your applications by following these four simple steps.

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 over 95 attack types and best practices; you can also create custom checks to address issues and risks that are custom to your environment.
The Universal Translator provides Rapid7’s Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) solutions—InsightAppSec and AppSpider—with the flexibility that enables maximum test coverage for the web applications of today and tomorrow.
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.
