Web applications are often business-critical and must be secure and available at all times. Applications might be complex, but your application security testing tool doesn’t have to be. On the contrary, it should be easy, fast, and reliable. That’s why we use Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST). A rather complex name for a not-so-complex approach. DAST mimics attacks on your applications, fully controlled, of course, so that we can detect security weaknesses. We try to gain access to your app and the user data it hosts.
Rapid7’s DAST tool - InsightAppSec - requires no installation of on-premise components. Instead, developers can simply log in and start scanning for vulnerabilities. The platform provides detailed technical information on each identified vulnerability, along with some recommendations for remediation. In addition, you can generate customized vulnerability reports for different business stakeholders.
