Click-and-scan web app security testing

You’ve got a handle on your network vulnerabilities, but what about the security gaps in your applications? Web application vulnerabilities continue to be the most common source of data breaches according to the annual Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, and you need a powerful tool that identifies all those risks—one that crawls your entire application, provides accurate results, and is also easy to deploy, easy to use, and seamlessly works within your existing security operations.


Built upon Rapid7’s Insight platform and leveraging our proven application security testing engine, InsightAppSec combines ease-of-use with powerful application crawling and attack capabilities. You’ll be up and running in no time, getting visibility into your application vulnerabilities within minutes.


5 Minutes To a Scan

Modern UI and intuitive workflows built on the Insight platform make InsightAppSec easy to deploy, manage, and run. 

5 Minutes To a Scan

  • No installation is required to test your applications—just log in, quickly build your app portfolio, and start scanning.
  • InsightAppSec can also scan internal, non-internet facing apps with optional on-premise engines.
  • Modern user interface and intuitive workflows gets you results quicker.

Proven Crawling and Attack Engine

InsightAppSec’s industry-leading and proven DAST scanning engine ensures accurate, comprehensive automated scanning of today’s most modern apps.

Proven Crawling and Attack Engine

  • Single Page Applications (SPA), REST APIs, and apps built with modern JavaScript frameworks are all supported.
  • InsightAppSec’s ability to comprehensively scan the exposed areas of your applications significantly reduces the likelihood you’ll miss a critical vulnerability.
  • High accuracy detection means fewer vulnerabilities missed and fewer false positives.

Disparate Apps, Centralized Results

Application portfolios provide a single view of all results across all scans. 

Disparate Apps, Centralized Results

  • Scan targets can be grouped together so that results are available in a single view.
  • Data is organized to match your organization’s understanding of an application.
  • Development, pre-production test, and production instances of an application can be tracked as the same application within InsightAppSec and results can be viewed individually or all at once.

Live Risk Visibility

Get instant visibility of application risk through live vulnerability views. 

Live Risk Visibility

  • Live vulnerability view provides an up-to-date view of all vulnerabilities for an application, showing results from all scans of that app in one single view.
  • Noise in the data, such as duplicate vulnerabilities, is automatically filtered out.
  • The history of every vulnerability is tracked, showing how many times it’s been detected and in which scans, providing more context for prioritization.
  • InsightAppSec’s intuitive search interface makes it quick and easy to find the vulnerabilities that matter most so that remediation efforts are focused on the high-priority areas first.


Provide actionable insights with reports that speed remediation. 


  • Live vulnerability view results can be easily exported and shared with stakeholders.
  • Reports can be easily tailored to provide custom views of vulnerabilities.
  • Status and severity of vulnerabilities is easily managed, to better reflect your application security operations.
  • Take action by leveraging detailed vulnerability explanations and remediation recommendations.
  • Attack Replay empowers developers to confirm vulnerabilities on their own, and when a fix is implemented, immediately test whether the vulnerability has been remediated.
