Attackers are increasingly exploiting web application vulnerabilities to breach security defenses. As the importance and number of web applications has increased, the challenge of identifying security vulnerabilities and fixing them has become one of scale. Many organizations have hundreds or even thousands of web properties that need to be triaged for security weaknesses, but until now the solutions available have not supported the scale required to automatically and accurately scan all the web properties that today’s enterprises rely on. Organizations need a highly scalable and easy-to-use vulnerability scanning solution to enable their growing web application security programs. Qualys WAS 3.4 provides organizations with the capabilities they need to meet these new demands and execute a best practices web application scanning program on all their web properties.
Feature highlights include: Support for scanning thousands of web applications with MultiScan, consolidated tag management within Asset View (formerly Asset Management), and additional usability enhancements. Together, these new features enable organizations to support high volume and fully automated web application scanning across their complete web application portfolio.
