We can do scanning and submit reports straight to the customers when there are new vulnerabilities, then tell them whether they are affected or not.

Key features include: Cloud-based, so the installation is not so tedious. Easily deployed. Highly scalable. Comprehensive reporting.
You can integrate your Burp Suite results and create an integrated report. Also, the way it shows the results - threats and exploit details - makes remediation very easy.

The area of false positives could be improved. There are quite a number of false positives as compared to other solutions. They could probably fine tune the algorithm to be able to reduce the number of false positives being detected.

In terms of the Policy Compliance model which they currently have, not all the platforms are being covered. If they could improve on the Policy Compliance model, since there are policies which are benchmarked against it, this will be helpful for us.

They should try to include business logic vulnerabilities in the scanner testing.
In certain cases, this product does have false positives, which the company should work on.

The GUI could be a little less complicated as it opens a lot of new windows for creating search lists, templates, reports, or for scanning purposes.
