HP launches vulnerability inspection tool

By on

WebInspect updated.

HP has launched the new version of its WebInspect technology to help identify vulnerabilities in web applications.

The tool replicates real-world attacks through a guided testing process which allows teams to distribute security intelligence and remediation guidance early in the development process, according to HP.

It includes an interactive testing process based on an adaptive component recognition technique for analysing modern complex web applications and JavaScript.

HP said the Guided Scan feature leads novice users and professional security testers in adapting tests to specific scenarios in custom environments where test configuration is difficult to troubleshoot.

Fortify HP vice president Mike Armistead said testing for critical threats needs to occur from the onset of app development.
