Qualys Web Application Scanning (WAS) is a robust cloud-based application security product that continuously discovers, detects, and catalogs web applications and APIs. It performs comprehensive and accurate scans to uncover runtime vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, PII exposures, and web malware across modern web applications and APIs. It can also insert vulnerability scanning into the DevSecOps and CI/CD pipelines through native integrations to Jenkins, AzureDevOps, Bamboo, and Team City.
With Qualys WAS, implement shift left and shift right methodologies to address security issues with speed. Qualys WAS helps you to automate scanning in CI/CD environments enabling you to perform shift left DAST testing. Accelerate risk reduction and mitigation by leveraging ITSM ticketing automation after scans complete and reduce MTTR.
Discover, monitor, and reduce your entire modern web app and API attack surface. Modern Web apps, plagued by vulnerabilities and misconfigurations due to poor coding and deployment checks, can be deployed across production environments. Large organizations have hundreds, even thousands of them. Qualys WAS gives you visibility and control by finding official, ‘unofficial’, and forgotten applications, OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities, and APIs throughout your environment for triage and scanning.
Find approved, unapproved, and forgotten web apps and APIs in your network with continuous, comprehensive discovery and cataloging in any cloud-native or on-prem architecture environment.
Organize your data and reports using your labels with customizable web application asset tagging.
Import vulnerabilities from 3rd party manual penetration tests (Burp, ZAP, BugCrowd etc.,) for a unified view of web app and API security for better attack surface management.
Provides better alignment between risk and compliance activities.
Prevents ad hoc risk assessments and switching between tools, improving organizational efficiency, reducing time spent in testing, and lowering operational costs.
Reduces the chances of a data breach by using the power of automated scanning alongside business logic attacks through manual penetration testing.
Scan web applications and APIs to find where PII is collected or exposed, which if left exposed could result in reputational damage, loss of brand value, security breaches, and compliance failures.
Scanning of web applications and APIs to find where PII is collected or exposed leads to reduced risk of PII related security breaches, compliance failures, and financial losses due to PII data theft and fines.
The new attack surface for malicious actors is your organization’s APIs. Over 83% of web traffic is now API traffic, powering web applications, microservices, and mobile apps. Scanning REST and SOAP APIs has been a core capability of Qualys WAS since 2017. In 2018, WAS added support for Swagger version 2 specification files. In 2019, WAS adopted Postman Collection support for parsing API endpoints and operational methods. In 2020, WAS added support for OpenAPI. Additionally, WAS can also scan SOAP APIs through WSDL files.
Scan REST and SOAP APIs and reduce your organization’s attack surface. Qualys WAS supports Swagger version 2 specification files and adopted Postman Collection support for parsing API endpoints and operational methods.
Runtime vulnerabilities in REST and SOAP APIs can be found before attackers can exploit them. Scan API-based business-to-business connectors and microservices quickly and easily.
Scan websites to find malware, including known and novel malware, via signatures, reputational checks, heuristics, and behavioral analysis to protect your reputation and brand value.
Detailed malware infection alerting, and reports find infected websites for remediation. In addition, a central dashboard displays scan activity, infected pages, and malware infection trends so users can initiate actions directly from its interface.
Malware detection leads to better data theft prevention, business reputation, and brand value. It also prevents financial loss due to malware data theft.
Shift left and shift right to address security issues with speed for faster remediation.
Shift left: WAS can insert security testing into development, testing, and production environments. With a robust API and native connectors for Azure DevOps, Jenkins, Team City, and Bamboo, Qualys WAS provides everything needed to automate scanning in CI/CD environments.
Shift right: Leverage ITSM ticketing automation after scans complete to start remediation immediately and reduce MTTR.
Shifting left and shifting right to address security issues as part of pre-scan and post scan vulnerability activities results in accelerated MTTR (Mean-time-to-remediate), improved security, increased productivity, and reduced downtime.
