Vulnerability Findings Overview
The DAST vulnerability scanner report lists the attack vectors tests the scanner has performed, their classifications and possible ways to fix them.
Practical Remediation advice
In each report, you will find all vulnerability findings, remediation advice and a checklist to easily mark what was already fixed.
More reasons for continuous DAST testing
Perform regular black box pentests on your web assets and spend less on infrequent manual penetration tests.
Cybersecurity Risk Reduction
Benchmark your next release against OWASP Top 10 and other known vulnerabilities.
Match vulnerability scanning to your agile dev cycle.
Scan every new release before deployment and ensure compliance with regulations and standards (HIPAA, GDPR, ISO, and many more).
Faster Vulnerability Detection
Detect and mitigate vulnerabilities quicker by scanning your web assets regularly.
Integrated Dev Pipeline
Integrate vulnerability scanning into your dev process and environment and shift security left.
What is a DAST Software?
DAST software is a type of software that helps companies manage their data storage and are mainly used to test application security. It allows companies to store data securely and efficiently. Those tools normally can not access the source code of applications.
Ethical hacking accesses applications from outside and therefore use DAST tests. This allows them to test for critical vulnerabilities and possible future security flaws on exposed attack surfaces. Subsequently, security information about the application is collected by these Ethical hackers. This information is based on what responses are received to the simulations. DAST may or may not be performed on production instances, although it is performed on running code. QA analysts and security teams use these tests to try to gain insights about the applications without having to simulate attacks on production.
DAST falls into the category of black-box security testing. This type of security testing is a method used to detect potential security issues. In addition, DAST has a lower false-positive rate relative to other security testing software you may be considering.
The DAST scanner offers you savings:
- Around 100 hours per year using an automated scanner with remediation advice.
- Up to 40% on your manual penetration tests by establishing continuous security.
Note: It’s important that you own and you have the permissions to set the DAST scanner. The DAST tool can generate different HTTP Requests that can be considered as attacks (even if they are not malicious) so consider that you need the authorization to run this scanner.
Why should I start a DAST vulnerability test?
DAST helps businesses find and fix web application vulnerabilities that were overlooked during code development and verification. Such tools also demonstrate how the application responds to an attack, which hackers exploit to gain more access.
A DAST implementation ensures not only good security posture and attack prevention, but also standardizes web app and API development governance and compliance.
How DAST works
Dynamic Application Security Testing analyses the application at runtime and needs no access to the source code. The application behavior is observed (it inputs attack payloads and observes if the application behaves in a defined way to determine if it is vulnerable) and this testing method is similar to an outside hacker without internal knowledge of the web application.
It is important to note that DAST should be used in combination with different testing approaches (e.g. SAST, IAST) as they can detect different categories of vulnerabilities.
How do I run a DAST scan?
Set up and start scanning in less than 2 minutes.
- Check the fastest setup on the market. After you register, create a Single-Page Application, Multi-Page Application, API, or Microservices scan target, verify ownership and run a Quick or Full Scan. We scan your web application and provide a report with all vulnerabilities found.
- Schedule a scan to run on a regular basis. Web apps, APIs, or some of their modules are updated often. Scan regularly to ensure you have identified vulnerabilities before your update goes to production.
- Excellent support team of security. We verify your DAST test to be sure you are setting up our vulnerability tool correctly.
- Test all Top 10 OWASP vulnerabilities. You’ll get exactly the types of attacks you are exposed to and the risk levels they have.
Is DAST secure?
The DAST Scanning Tool simulates the same techniques of hackers to exploit a web app while the code is running. Also, platform-independent testing applications independent of their hardware, design, internal architecture, or programming language means it is practical to scan for Web API threats or find every Top 10 listed risks.
SAST vs DAST. Which are the differences?
For these AppSec technologies, the main difference is that each one uses unique testing mechanisms to find vulnerabilities and weaknesses. For example, SAST uses a white-box testing approach by leveraging the elemental source code and performing internal scans while the code remains static. It tests for application/source-code vulnerabilities. SAST is primarily used to assess the application architecture and design environment, mobile applications, and real-time systems. And DAST, on the other hand, uses a black-box testing approach, where the tester discovers an application’s vulnerabilities from an external ecosystem during application runtime. It tests for runtime and environment issues. DAST is used to evaluate security risks in web apps, databases, servers, and services.
Is DAST part of DevSecOps?
Yes, using DAST Software is a great way to secure your code while application time runs. In addition, the tool sends you a notification every time a vulnerability is found so that you can keep coding without issues that should be fixed in the future, with the corresponding waste of money and time.
