New web apllication scanning solution for complex Web 2.0 technologies
S.P.I. Dynamics announced the release of WebInspect 7, delivering faster scanning capabilities, broader assessment coverage, and the industry’s most accurate results. WebInspect 7 is powered by the new “Phoenix” architecture that uniquely addresses the requirements associated with complex Web 2.0 technologies.
Product highlights available with WebInspect 7 built on the Phoenix architecture:
— Faster Scans, More Accurate Results – SPI Dynamics’ new patent-pending simultaneous crawl and audit (SCA) technology combines the application crawl and audit into a single fluid process. By conducting these activities in parallel instead of sequentially, scan times are reduced by 50 percent or more.
— Immediate Results — This new auditing approach provides results to the tester within seconds of starting an assessment and continues to report in real time throughout the scan.
— Broader Coverage, Reduced False Negatives — WebInspect 7 includes intelligent scanning engines capable of analyzing complex Web 2.0 technologies to provide broader testing coverage than possible with earlier legacy scanning architectures. WebInspect 7 exposes application logic that was previously hidden, revealing security vulnerabilities undetectable through automated security testing.
— Simultaneous Scans — Users can now launch and manage multiple concurrent scans, greatly increasing testing throughput with WebInspect 7.
— Advanced Authentication Management — New automated mechanisms eliminate the complexities of authentication even with applications using advanced technologies such as two-factor authentication or CAPTCHA. WebInspect 7 can both authenticate with secure web applications and detect when re-authentication is required. This is essential to ensure complete coverage.
— Tabbed Interface — WebInspect 7’s all new tabbed interface provides easy single-point access for multiple scans and reports.
— Integrated Support Channel — Users can easily submit false positives and other feedback directly to SPI Dynamics from within the product with just one click.
— Support for IPv6 — WebInspect 7 is ready for the future Internet with full support for IPv6.
