Getting Started With Web Application Scanning
WAS provides comprehensive vulnerability scanning for modern web applications. Its accurate vulnerability coverage minimises false positives and false negatives, ensuring that security teams understand the true security risks in their web applications. It offers safe external scanning that ensures production web applications are not disrupted or delayed.
This document explores the differences between WAS and Nessus scanning, various approaches to launching web application scans and prioritizing vulnerabilities, and a detailed view of the architecture and deployment methodology underlying WAS.
