One of the features I like about this program is the low number of false positives and the support it offers.

The most attractive feature was the reporting review tool. The reporting review was very impressive and produced very fruitful reports.

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.

The scanner itself should be improved because it is a little bit slow.

The proxy review, the use report views, the current use tool and the subset requests need some improvement. It was hard to understand how to use them.
