Most Helpful Review
Usually when we deploy the application, there is a process for ethical hacking. The main benefit is that, the ethical hacking is almost clean, every time. So it's less cost, less effort, less time to production.
Crawling feature: Netsparker has very detail crawling steps and mechanisms. This feature expands the attack surface.
Attacking feature: Actually, attacking is not a solo feature. It contains many attack engines, Hawk, and many properties. But Netsparker's attacking mechanism is very flexible. This increases the vulnerability detection rate. Also, Netsparker made the Hawk for real-time interactive command-line-based exploit testing. It's very valuable for a vulnerability scanner.
When we try to manually exploit the vulnerabilities, it often takes time to realize what's going on and what needs to be done.
Scan, proxify the application, and then detailed report along with evidence and remediations to problems.
Visibility is an issue for us. Our partners do not know we have integrations with some of IBM products.
I would like to see the roadmap for this product. We are still waiting to see it as we have only so many resources.
I would love to see more containers. Many of the tools are great, they require an amount of configuration, setup and infrastructure. If most the applications were in a container, I think everything would be a little bit faster, because all our clients are now using containers.
It's a little bit basic when you talk about the Web Services. If AppScan improved its maturity on Web Services testing, that would be good.
It would be better for listing and attacking Java-based web applications to exploit vulnerabilities.
The higher level vulnerabilities like Cross-Site Scripting, SQL Injection, and other higher level injection attacks are difficult to highlight using Netsparker.

IBM Security AppScan enhances web application security and mobile application security, improves application security program management and strengthens regulatory compliance. By scanning your web and mobile applications prior to deployment, AppScan enables you to identify security vulnerabilities and generate reports and fix recommendations.
Netsparker finds and reports web application vulnerabilities such as SQL Injection and Cross-site Scripting (XSS) on all types of web applications, regardless of the platform and technology they are built with. Netsparker's unique and dead accurate Proof-Based scanning technology does not just report vulnerabilities, it also produces a Proof of Concept to confirm they are not false positives, freeing you from having to double check the identified vulnerabilities.
