What is Tenable Web App Scanning?
Tenable Web App Scanning (Formerly Tenable.io Web Application Scanning) is a dynamic application security testing (DAST) that provides simple, scalable and automated vulnerability scanning for web applications. It is a part of comprehensive Cyber Exposure solution that offers comprehensive and accurate comprehensive and accurate vulnerability assessment, thereby better understand the true cyber risks in your web applications.
1. Improve Scanning Confidence
Tenable Web App Scanning is capable in providing highly accurate results with minimal false positive and negative, allowing you to have confident with scanning report thus mitigate risk better.
2. Reduce Manual Work Efforts
Tenable Web App Scanning’s touch automated scanning enables you to understand your web application security risks as your environment changes without the manual effort and time unless required.
3.Remove Security Blind Spots
4. Rapid Security Assessments
Tenable Web App Scanning delivers immediate value. The fast web application scans feature of Tenable web App Scanning enables you to discover common security hygiene issues that run in two minutes or less.
5. Reduce Product Sprawl
Tenable Web App Scanning allows you to gain visibility into your true cyber risks across your modern attack surface as to decrease complexity and product sprawl.
Understand Your Web Applications
Tenable Web App Scanning helps in gaining insight into the structure and layout of your web applications. Significantly it’s overview scan rapidly provides you with the key basic findings enabling you to can plan for a full assessment more effectively.
Advanced Dashboard Capabilities
Dashboards in Tenable Web App Scanning provide you with unified visibility into scanned web applications which include viewing vulnerabilities over time and based on risk level, OWASP Top 10 security issues, and descriptions of all vulnerabilities with comprehensive remediation instructions for developers.
Additionally, Pre-configured executive summary dashboards enable you to share critical business-level details with leadership. Furthermore, Customizable dashboards assist you to clearly communicate application security metrics that matter most to your team.
Safe Scanning of Web Applications
Tenable Web App Scanning allows to exclude parts of the web application to be scanned by providing the URLs or file extensions to be excluded from the scan. This makes the scanning process do not interrupt the performance latency of your web applications.
Automated Web App Scanning
Tenable Web App Scanning allows you to easily and quickly assess all of your web applications with a highly automated solution that reduces your manual work effort.
Coverage of Modern Web Application Frameworks
Rapidly Detect Cyber Hygiene Issues
Tenable Web App Scanning offers two pre-built scanning templates for common and potentially costly web
application misconfigurations. The scanning template are:
- SSL/TLS Scan – determine invalid, expiring or improperly issued certificates that trigger browser warning messages and user bounce rates.
- Config Audit Scan – identify for overly descriptive responses to HTTP calls that provide valuable reconnaissance information to would-be hackers.
Importantly, the two scans complete in several minutes for near-immediate results.
3rd-Party Component Scanning
Third-party and open source which make up 85% of web applications often contains harmful vulnerabilities. Tenable Web App Scanning helps identify third-party components in an application and assess them for vulnerabilities as part of a comprehensive web application scan.
Advanced Authentication Support
Tenable Web App Scanning supports a broad range of authentication options including form-based authentication, cookie-based authentication, NTLM support, and Selenium-based authentication that enables vulnerability scanner to assess application.
Unified Web App Scanning and Vulnerability Management
Tenable Web App Scanning delivers comprehensive and accurate web application scanning to gain a complete
view of your security and compliance exposure, making you able to remove data silos and minimize the burden of product sprawl. With this capabilities, you can better understand your cyber risk and protect your organization through one solution.
