Vulnerability Scanning & Management

AppCheck is a top-tier web application and infrastructure vulnerability scanner, developed, meticulously maintained and continually updated by experienced penetration testers.

The advanced scanning engine excels in the precise discovery of vulnerabilities, employing a combined network and browser-based scanning approach. Internal, external, cloud or self-hosted, AppCheck is designed to cover and test each layer of an organisation’s key IT systems for vulnerabilities, in one seamless and intuitive solution. 


Vulnerability Scanner Features

Benefits of AppCheck

Continuous Vulnerability Discovery

Discover new vulnerabilities as they arise with year-round 24/7 scanning capabilities. Why wait for annual reports when you can continuously scan your web applications to catch new vulnerabilities as soon as they are introduced. AppCheck emulates the process of a manual penetration with the frequency of an automated tool to discover zero days, OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities, and 100,000+ known security flaws.

Complete Vulnerability Management

All vulnerabilities are tracked and managed through the vulnerability management platform, giving you a complete system overview to show you what the outside world sees. With just a click you can produce professional penetration testing style reports which include a detailed technical narrative and remediation steps for all findings. AppCheck provides the full picture.

Scalable Solutions

AppCheck allows you to scan for vulnerabilities at scale with the click of a button. Discover the latest security flaws like a team ten times the size. Whether you are scanning 1 or 1,000 web applications, AppCheck has a solution to fit your needs. Each licence offers unlimited scans and unlimited users so you can share findings across all teams and scale as you grow.

Advanced Configuration

Whether you just want to run a quick scan or are a power user who needs ultimate control, AppCheck allows complete flexibility. Scans can be run in a few clicks using profiles built by our security experts or built from scratch using the profile editor.

Cover Internal and External Estate

AppCheck provides a comprehensive vulnerability scanning platform that is designed to cover and test each layer of an organisation’s key IT systems for vulnerabilities, in one seamless and intuitive solution.

Scan in Production

Catch vulnerabilities early to avoid costly mistakes. Continuous assurance from automated scanning repeated as often as every code deploy. Quicker fixes take the strain off your team and shorten the attack window.

Uncover vulnerabilities overlooked by other tools

As well as using a database of static signatures of known weaknesses, the AppCheck platform applies a rigorous test methodology and sends payloads to tease out even previously unknown weaknesses in the same way a hacker or penetration tester would. 

Detect hidden issues which can only be identified through advanced out-of-band detection techniques

Automated detection of vulnerabilities often thought to require manual penetration testing, such as Insecure Direct Object Reference (IDOR)

Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) gathers information that can be seeded into the assessment process

How does Vulnerability Scanning work?

Website security scanners work by checking your website for common pitfalls and security issues that could be prone to attack.

Accurate and efficient component discovery (crawling) is commonly cited as one of the key challenges when performing an automated web application assessment.

The AppCheck scanning engine employs two integrated crawling technologies to overcome this challenge. Our HTTP/HTML based crawler is used to discover components quickly and to identify hidden components through forced browsing. A second integrated crawling engine then executes webpages in the same way a normal browser would. Any embedded scripts or components are then able to run as intended whilst allowing full visibility to the discovery engine.


Why use a vulnerability scanner?

Using a vulnerability scanner is a proactive and cost-effective approach to identifying, prioritizing, and mitigating security vulnerabilities.

Due to their large and complex attack surface and the difficulty in ensuring they are secure, web applications continue to be a prime target in attacks for malicious hackers and infrastructure components, owing to their expansive and intricate nature, pose a persistent attraction for malicious hackers.

A single fault in an application, its framework, or even some third-party units or a single vulnerability within your infrastructure, whether it’s a critical server, network component, or even a third-party service, has the potential to jeopardize the entire host or network. 

Using a comprehensive vulnerability scanning tool not only aids in identifying vulnerabilities but also supports continuous monitoring capabilities, early detection to prevent potential security incidents, risk mitigation, effective patch management, enhances the efficiency of security teams, and ensures compliance with industry standards.

Why choose AppCheck?

More basic vulnerability scanners may solely identify CVEs – common cybersecurity vulnerabilities that are identified based on recognised patterns and software versions. AppCheck breaks the mould, blending a repository of known weaknesses with an exhaustive testing approach that mirrors the strategies of hackers and penetration testers. Powerful DAST testing coupled with hourly updates from our VulnFeed service enables you to protect your whole organisation from zero-days and 100,000+ known security flaws.

The AppCheck crawling engine uses a combination of application modelling techniques and subtle heuristic cues to automatically discover the complete attack surface of any given application in the shortest time possible. The algorithms are designed to model how a penetration tester or attacker would explore the application, to detect subtle vulnerabilities that other tools often miss and opening up attack vectors that are inaccessible to less sophisticated crawlers.

AppCheck’s cutting-edge out-of-band detection techniques unveil concealed vulnerabilities that typically require manual penetration testing, delivering uncompromising security for your systems.
