Categorized vulnerability severity with remediation
Easy to use checklist
All OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities check
More reasons for continuous HIPAA 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 HIPAA scan
The HIPAA automated penetration testing allows you to perform vulnerability scans that adhere to the HIPAA Security Rule. Take advantage of the HIPAA security software when you:
- Are a healthcare provider, health insurer, or a healthcare organization.
- Have a web application or website where you store patients’ personal and health data or healthcare records.
- You don’t know much about cyberattacks, but you want to protect your web assets and customers.
- Manual penetration testing seems too expensive and time-consuming.
Note: It’s important that you own and you have the permissions to set the HIPPA scanner. The HIPPA tool can generate different HTTP Requests that can be considered as attacks (even if they are completely inoffensive) so consider that you need the authorization to run this scanner.
HIPAA vulnerability assessment for modern web applications & teams
- Crashtest Security’s vulnerability scanner can also scan third-party components in your web application and assesses their security level.
Applications, Microservices, and APIs.
- CI/CD pipeline: Integrate your DevOps process with Circle CI, Jenkins, Team City, Bamboo, Travis CI, Buildbot, GoCD, Codeship, Buildkite, or Buddy.
- Ticketing systems manage your remediation in the same place as all your other tickets via Jira, Asana, or DefectRojo.
How we can help you to do a penetration testing for HIPAA
When you scan for specific HIPAA compliance vulnerabilities, you are closer to preventing dangerous attacks that permit hackers to acquire patient data such as social security numbers, passwords, credit cards, emails, etc.
Businesses with the Crashtest Security Certificate demonstrate to their customers that they are proactively protecting them and their data with regular state-of-the-art security scanning.
- Access to a tool with an established process of testing a variety of attack vectors and finding loopholes that need to be closed.
- You’ll have access to an exclusive wiki where you will find all the possible types of attacks vectors, with explanations on how to fix them and, above all, how to prevent them.
- We have an excellent support team, one of our strengths as a company. Our experts will help you to run the scanners correctly.
How should I use the security application testing for HIPAA compliance
To start scanning your web app or API, you need to register and follow the steps:
- Add and verify ownership of your scan domain/target (your web application, website, or API).
- Go and get coffee. We’ll email you when the scan is done.
- Visit the dashboard and see the results.

Is penetration testing required for HIPAA compliance?
Not necessary. You should conduct a complete risk analysis to secure the protection of the health data of your customers, which can be performed following different scenarios. HIPAA security can be reached while you control the risk and vulnerabilities. This means setting audit controls, authentication controls, access controls, or transmission security controls, among others.
Suppose you perform HIPAA testing using our automated penetration test scanner. In that case, it guarantees the protection of weaknesses within your information and development systems, and we firmly believe this is an excellent way to achieve these goals while saving time and money, as it is a friendly budget software with very low false-positive cases.
Does vulnerability scanning help other regulatory or certificate compliance?
Yes, continuous security is a prerequisite in the following:
- ISO2700 compliance
- GDPR compliance
