Synopsys Web Scanner

Fast and easy DAST optimized for the needs of developers

Dynamic application security testing (DAST) is an essential tool in any AppSec toolbox. Synopsys Web Scanner™ makes it easy for developers and security teams to test web applications for known and zero-day vulnerabilities.

AppSec testing optimized for the needs of web application developers

Five-minute setup

Easy integrations and simple setup help you start scanning in five minutes.

Issue-tracker integrations

Synopsys Web Scanner pushes vulnerabilities directly into issue-trackers like Jira for easy access.

One-click verification

You can replay attacks and rescan vulnerabilities with one click. Immediate feedback will show you how a vulnerability affects your site and if you’ve fixed it.

Continuous security

Synopsys Web Scanner integrates into your current continuous integration or security process with easy-to-use APIs to scan each time a new version of your site is deployed.

Authenticated scanning

Synopsys Web Scanner can log into any website—including SAML / single sign-on authenticated sites. 

How it works

Using the same techniques as malicious hackers, Synopsys Web Scanner systematically tests all the access points of your web applications through a headless browser to intercept and analyze JavaScript and AJAX requests, even as newly created forms are populated. It checks for the OWASP Top 10 web application security risks as well as other known security weaknesses and vulnerabilities, providing step-by-step instructions on how to eliminate any detected issues.

Synopsys Web Scanner is constantly being updated, so you can rest assured that you are protected against the latest threats. We regularly incorporate new tests, and Synopsys Web Scanner consistently scores higher than any other scanner on open source benchmarks.
