Web Application Scanning
Address vulnerabilities with web application scanning
As organizations rely more heavily on digital marketing and online communication, web application scanning can help IT teams to monitor the web perimeter and limit risk exposure more effectively.
Your company’s digital marketing and web communications are constantly evolving. Web pages, websites and web applications are created and taken offline by different departments and business lines on a daily basis, and it can be difficult to know many web pages and websites your company has live at any given time. Monitoring your web perimeter is critical to security, but it’s also time-consuming, expensive and complex. Most point solutions won’t scale to cover all of your web applications, and including scanning functionality in the software development lifecycle (SDLC) is a challenge.
That’s where Veracode’s Web Application Scanning can help. As part of Veracode’s comprehensive application security offerings, Web Application Scanning provides a unified solution that lets you quickly discover, secure and monitor all of your web applications — not just the ones you are aware of.
