What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the crawler because it can found many links and generate close to a full sitemap. It correctly parses DOM and JS and has really good support… more »

How has it helped my organization?

Netsparker has done an awesome job with its crawler, as it has found all of the links (also thanks to its good DOM parser). It has helped me a great deal on a first try… more »

What needs improvement?

The scanner itself should be improved because it is a little bit slow. CPU usage should be improved due to my PC's fan going mad. RAM usage also should be improved as… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I think that price it too high, like other Security applications such as Acunetix, WebInspect, and so on.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have used Burp Suite Professional and Acunetix. I switched to Netsparker just to try it and understand how it works.

What other advice do I have?

You can use Netsparker but use it carefully as some payloads can be dangerous in production. This is the same as Acunetix, WebInspect, and others. Every scanner should… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I did not evaluate other options.

What is most valuable?

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

What needs improvement?

The program uses technology that is different from application scanners. It's not an incremental solution. It could be a new product, but I'm not that knowledgeable to know which products are part of a suite. Netsparker doesn't provide the source code of the static application security testing. I would love to see a completion of the offering with statistical analysis. Every customer has its own… more »

What other advice do I have?

There are many average products on the market, but I prefer Netsparker because to me wasting time after false positives is the worst thing that can happen. Accuracy is the most important thing to me. I rate Netsparker eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features that I've found in this solution was the level of accuracy and also that the process of scanning was very quick and we're easily able to change the frame of a scan. I use the many applications and security management tools and the accuracy is important for me. Other solutions like NetBus don't have such an accurate timeline.

What needs improvement?

Improvement could be made in the area of production. Features like macro recording that I've used in other solutions would improve this product. Recording macro for complex applications, especially web applications where there is a complex web application for login or logout format. We could record the macro for login to make a dynamic scanning process, which makes it easier to scan methodology… more »

What other advice do I have?

This is not a simple solution, there is a complexity there. A lot of companies here don't like the idea of using a cloud provider or cloud application for scanning. We prefer to have stand-alone applications and not use the cloud. It's something they could offer, like Qualys. I would rate this solution an eight out of 10.

What is most valuable?

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

What needs improvement?

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.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used a different tool, but it was also a demo, like Netsparker. We wanted to try Netsparker, so we moved to their demo.

What other advice do I have?

We're using a demo of the latest version for a POC. We used the on-premises deployment model. I'd recommend Netsparker for anyone who wants to make a security assessment for web applications. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. The tool… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I tried some different tools. Some of them were full versions whereas others were demo versions like Netsparker.
