What is vulnerability scanning

Vulnerability scanning is commonly considered the most efficient way to compare your site with a huge list of known vulnerabilities and identify potential weaknesses in your applications’ security. Vulnerability scanning can be used as part of a standalone assessment or a continuous overall security monitoring strategy. 

What is a web vulnerability scanner

Vulnerability scanners are automated tools that scan web applications to look for security vulnerabilities. The scanners test web applications for common security problems such as cross-site scripting (XSS), SQL injection, and cross-site request forgery (CSRF).

There are more capable scanners that may be able to delve further into an application by utilising more advanced techniques. Pioneering application system testing techniques mean that Burp Scanner, the engine powering Burp Suite application security testing products, can find vulnerabilities many other scanners would miss, including asynchronous SQL injection and blind SSRF.

The Challenges Of Web Application Scanning

Web application scans are critical to an organisation’s overall security posture. Attackers are increasingly targeting digital assets, including websites and other public-facing portals that often transmit sensitive information. SQL injections, cross-site scripting, and different types of attacks used consistently and effectively because organisations develop web applications to serve their customers.
