Web Application Scanning Tool With Javascript and Flash Support

Qualys : 16 February, 2011  (New Product)
QualysGuard security-as-a-service now benefits from Web Application Scanning version 2.0 with support for JavaScript and Flash for detecting potentially vulnerable software flaws
Qualys has released QualysGuard WAS 2.0 with several major enhancements to help customers catalogue their web applications on a global scale and scan them for vulnerabilities that can lead to exploitation. The new release, delivered via the QualysGuard SaaS platform and its new Java-based backend, comes with a new Web 2.0 User Interface (UI) that raises the bar in terms of ease-of-use, flexible reporting and automation of scanning tasks.



“Software flaws are a significant source of loss through security and safety incidents, and they also result in greatly increased development and maintenance costs.” Moreover, “dynamic testing — and Web application scanning in particular — is an important component of software assurance and security testing — one that plays an increasingly important role in enterprise software security programs,” said Ramon Krikken, research director for Gartner.*



Major enhancements in QualysGuard WAS 2.0 include:



    * Cataloging and scanning of web applications in the enterprise (Intranet, Internet) or in the cloud, including Amazon EC2 and VPC platforms (see related release)



    * Fully interactive UI with flexible workflows and reporting



    * Supports scanning HTML web applications with JavaScript and embedded Flash



    * Comprehensive detection of custom web application vulnerabilities including:



    * Customizable scanning options:



“Based on our new Java-based backend that makes use of Web 2.0 UI technologies, this release brings web application scanning to an unprecedented level of automation and functionality,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO for Qualys. “This new release allows customers and service providers to catalogue and scan thousands of web applications within the enterprise or in the cloud at a price point any organization can afford.”
