OWASP TOP 10

Find & Remediate the Most Prevalent Vulnerabilities

Insecure web applications are an easy way for hackers to access your data. Protect your IT environment by running continuous vulnerability scans– quickly, efficiently, and easily. Our Web Application Scanning tool checks for common vulnerabilities, such as injection flaws and Cross-Site Scripting bugs, as well as vulnerabilities specific to certain CMSs and REST APIs. Once identified, you can create a clear report detailing all recorded issues. Our solution is easy to use, reliable, and can be deployed within your IT infrastructure.

frequent questions

FAQ

Here we answer the most frequent questions about Web Application Scanning.

Do You Scan All Types of Web Applications?

Yes, we scan all types of web applications, such as commercial websites, intranets, portals, admin interfaces, and more.

Do You Scan for OWASP Top 10 Vulnerabilities?

Yes, we scan for OWASP top 10 vulnerabilities according to the latest version, 2021

Do You Support Authenticated Scanning?

Yes, we support both authenticated and unauthenticated scanning. With authenticated scanning, we scan the “inside” of your applications.

How Long Does It Take to Get Started?

It only takes a few hours to get started with our powerful and easy-to-manage platform. Contact us and we will help you get started today.

What Scan Technology is Used?

Our web application scanner is based on DAST (Dynamic Application Security Testing) and SCA (Software Composition Analysis). This means that we find vulnerabilities in the running application and in components used like WordPress and JavaScript libraries.

Is There any Software or Hardware Required?

If you choose the Holm Security cloud deployment option no 3rd party software or hardware is required. But for local scanning, you need to install one or multiple Scanner Appliances, which is a virtual appliance. If you choose to deploy on-premise you will need to install a minimum of two virtual instances. One core appliance and one Scanner Appliance. 

How Does a Web Application Security Testing Tool Work?

A web application security testing tool scans the web application for vulnerabilities and other issues. The scanner will run through the entire application, starting at the front end and moving to the back end. It will look for HTTP headers and cookies, as well as HTML content and form data. It tests for cross-site scripting (XSS), SQL injection, and other common security holes. Then it will assess these items against known vulnerabilities to determine any issues with the application.

How Do I Start Using Your Web App Scanner For My Web Security Testing?

You can start using our web app scanner by signing up for a demo account. Once you've signed up, you'll be able to log in to your account and start scanning your web applications. We also offer a free trial so that you can test out our product before committing to anything long-term.

How Long Time Does It Take to Perform a Web Application Security Test?

The length of time it takes to perform a web application security test depends on how large your application is and how many different types of tests need to be run against it. The more complex your site is, the longer it will take. 

What is Static Application Security Testing?

Static Application Security Testing (SAST) is a security testing method that looks for software vulnerabilities. SAST does not test the software in action but analyzes the source code for potential vulnerabilities. This means that you can use SAST to find vulnerabilities in software that's already been deployed, and you don't need access to the production environment. Security issues like SQL Injection and Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) are common types of vulnerabilities found using static application security testing. 

What is Dynamic Application Security Testing?

Dynamic application security testing (DAST) is a security testing method used to threat assess a web application while in runtime and identify any security vulnerabilities or weaknesses. Using DAST, a tester examines an application while it's working and attempts to attack it as a hacker would.
