Challenges for Web Application Scanning

  • Where are we exposed? Only a subset of web applications are assessed for vulnerabilities
  • Where should we prioritize based on risk? Many security teams lack application security specialists
  • Web application scans yield an overwhelming number of web application vulnerabilities Web application scans yield an overwhelming number of web app vulnerabilities

The Tenable.io Solution

Tenable.io Web App Scanning provides easy-to-use, comprehensive and automated vulnerability scanning for modern web applications. Tenable.io WAS allows you to quickly configure and manage web app scans in a matter of minutes with minimal tuning.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Tenable.io Web App Scanning?
Tenable.io WAS is a dynamic application security testing (DAST) application. A DAST crawls a running web application through the front end to create a site map with all of the pages, links and forms for testing. Once the DAST creates a site map, it interrogates the site through the front end to identify any vulnerabilities in the application custom code or known vulnerabilities in the third-party components that comprise the bulk of the application.
What kind of vulnerabilities does Tenable.io Web App Scanning identify?
Tenable.io WAS identifies OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities such as cross-site scripting (XSS) and SQL injection in custom application code and vulnerable versions of third-party components running on your site. Both categories of vulnerabilities are essential to ensure comprehensive vulnerability coverage in modern web applications.
Does Tenable.io Web App Scanning identify misconfigurations or certificate issues?
Yes, you can use Tenable.io WAS to identify a number of cyber hygiene issues in web applications in two minutes or less through the use of predefined scan templates. The SSL/TLS scan template checks for improperly issued or soon-to-expire SSL/TLS certificates, which helps users avoid costly and embarrassing browser warnings and redirects. The Config Audit scan template checks for a number of server-side misconfigurations that leave web applications vulnerable to hacker reconnaissance or man-in-the-middle attacks.
Can I tailor information that Tenable.io Web App Scanning users have access to?
Yes. Tenable.io WAS includes role-based access control. Administrators have the option of creating user groups and assigning user permissions to view and launch scans on an individual scan basis. Users will only see relevant scan data, allowing them to more easily focus their efforts and prioritize which vulnerabilities to remediate.
Can I create custom reports in Tenable.io Web App Scanning?
Yes. Tenable.io WAS gives users the ability to create a variety of dashboards to tailor their reporting needs. Pre-configured, executive-level reports are available to keep business stakeholders informed of team remediation progress without getting lost in technical details. Tenable.io WAS also allows users to create fully-custom dashboards of scan data to track metrics that are relevant to their teams. Tenable.io and Tenable.io WAS users can also create fully integrated dashboards combining IT, cloud and web application vulnerabilities for unified visibility across their attack surface.
Does Tenable.io Web App Scanning scan single page applications?
Yes. Tenable.io WAS scans modern web applications including single page applications. While no scanning tool can guarantee 100% coverage of all application types and vulnerabilities, Tenable.io WAS crawls and scans many of the most popular single page application frameworks.
How often are new vulnerability detections added to Tenable.io Web App Scanning?
Tenable’s world-class Research Team built Tenable.io WAS. Tenable Research continuously analyzes vulnerabilities and the threat landscape and adds new detections for third-party components and custom code vulnerability detection as new security issues are discovered.
Can I use Tenable.io Web App Scanning to perform code reviews?
No. Tenable.io WAS is a dynamic application security testing (DAST) tool, meant to test running applications and does not perform static code reviews. Static application security testing (SAST) tools perform code reviews.
