What is Rapid7 AppSpider?

SPAs, APIs, mobile—the evolution of application technology is measured in months, not years. Is your web application security testing tool designed to keep up? AppSpider lets you collect all the information needed to test all the apps so that you aren’t left with gaping application risks.

Our dynamic application security testing (DAST) solution crawls to the deepest, darkest corners of even the most modern and complex apps to effectively test for risk and get you the insight you need to remediate faster. With AppSpider on your side (or, rather, all of your sides), you’ll be able to scan all the apps today and always be ready for whatever comes next.

The identification mechanism can enhance each scan through consideration options

What is our primary use case?

We put Rapid7 AppSpider on the application scans for our network.

Pros and Cons

  • "Rapid7 AppSpider is good at managing different applications. It uses applets and generates reports to cover the PCA/GDPR compliance requirements."
  • "Implementing Rapid7 AppSpider requires scanning and self-identification mechanisms. You can add different types of authentication to each scan."

What other advice do I have?

All aspects of Rapid7 AppSpider are good. On a scale from one to ten, I would rate this product an eight.

I like the ability the product has to detect vulnerabilities quickly, but the product needs to be able to scale

What is most valuable?

I like the ability the product has to detect vulnerabilities quickly, when it has been released in our environment, then displaying them to us.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The product needs to be able to scale for large companies, like ours. We have millions of IP addresses that need to be scanned, and the scalability is not great.

What other advice do I have?

It has good features.
