Netsparker, from the UK company of the same name (formerly Mavituna Security, named for CEO Ferruh Mavituna), is an application security and testing platform.https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/W1/nc/OHZMXRW0B0TD.pngNetsparker Cloud does a lot but can take a lot of time.Netsparker is used by the Application Security Group at Mathematica to dynamically scan development and production websites on a regular basis. It currently scans all applications that we have an authority to operate assigned to. This allows us to make certain that the number of vulnerabilities in the application are not easily discovered and allows us to share the Netsparker vulnerability report with our government clients. By running Netsparker on a regular schedule we can be certain that new vulnerabilities have been introduced into our applications even though we have not modified the application since the last scan was performed. Netsparker also allows us to mitigate false positive reports once they have been reported to us.,Netsparker is a product that many security companies use to scan their clients websites. This means it has good reputation and we can use that reputation when we show our Netsparker scan to our clients. Netsparker is very customizable and allows us to reduce the scan time by making sure we do not spend time scanning technologies that are not being used in the application. Once a set of customizations are configured they can be applied to similar types of applications. This allows us to quickly setup a vulnerability scan of new applications. Netsparker includes numerous vulnerability points to test for. This means that sometimes thousands of possible vulnerabilities are tested. Other scanners to do not always scan for all of these types of vulnerabilities.,Netsparker Cloud is expensive and restricts the number of website URLs that you are allowed to scan. This restricts us from scanning all of the websites that we create and only allows us to scan a small subset of number of the website we produce. Netsparker is difficult to configure and I often need to open a ticket with support to figure out how to use the product. I have been vulnerability testing websites for over 10 years and I still don't think I really know how to use Netsparker. Netsparker can take a very long time to complete a scan due to the number of items it can scan for. Be certain to reduce the technologies that your scan will be looking at. Also, expect a large website to possibly take over two days to complete. Not something you really want to have happen on a developer checking on some source code.,5,Netsparker can perform a very deep vulnerability of a website if you have the time for it to run and the time to learn the product. We need this thoroughness on a number of our websites and the clients are willing to pay for this thoroughness. For this reason, it is quite useful and does what we need. Netsparker can be run through automation but the documentation is lacking in this area. If they had better documentation it wouldn't take so long to get the system running.,,Visual Studio IDE, Netwrix Auditor, Microsoft SQL Server,Yes,Product Features Product Reputation Vendor Reputation,I would want to take a lot more time to work with Netsparker to decide if this is the tool to use for our vulnerability scans. In the end, it might have been the best tool for what we needed, however, I am looking at other competing products to throw into the mix of scanners along with Netsparker.

Netsparker is very thorough but can take a very long time to scan a web application. It can also take a long time to learn and configure. Its thoroughness is a very good part of the product but if the application does [not] need this thoroughness it is probably a waste of time to run Netsparker on the website.
