Virtual Scan Appliance

Applications behind the firewall are an important part of your overall threat surface. They’re vulnerable to attack not only from malicious insiders but from outsiders who gain credentialed access to internal systems.

The Virtual Scan Appliance (VSA) is a pre-configured virtual appliance that implements our DynamicDS (Deep Scan) engine to probe web applications behind the firewall.

  • Start Scanning Immediately: The VSA is easy to deploy: there’s no hardware to purchase and the virtual appliance is based on the standard Open Virtualization Format (OVF).

  • Integrated with Central Cloud Platform: The VSA uploads all test results to our cloud platform — via encrypted communication — so that threat intelligence about internal applications can be aggregated with other results and evaluated using a single set of centralized policies and reports.

  • Application Security at Scale: You can install VSAs in an unlimited number of data centers to scale across your entire application infrastructure.

  • Policy-Based: Central Policy Manager ensures minimum acceptable levels of risk are uniformly applied across all applications based on their business criticality— independent of testing technique or stage in the lifecycle—including compliance-related controls for PCI, HIPAA, SOX, NIST and MAS.

  • Verified Results: Our security experts examine VSA results to distinguish real problems from false positives.

  • Actionable Information: Delivers complete threat information enabling development and QA teams to easily recreate and remediate flaws.

  • Remediation Guidance: Our security experts provide development and security teams with detailed information on how to fix flaws uncovered in security testing.
