Web Application Security Testing

Powered by the Insight Cloud

Modern web applications are at the core of most business operations and outputs.
Do you really know if your application development is secure?  Agile development practices means frequent, rapid changes to our applications, meaning the security posture of your application changes often.

‘You can’ be confident in your security posture, through leading edge dynamic application security testing that demonstrates immediate return on investment.

InsightAppSec by Rapid7

Your web applications may be complex, but your application security testing tool does not need to be. InsightAppSec is Rapid7’s Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) technology, combining powerful application crawling and attack capabilities. This cloud-based tool provides flexible scans, scheduling, lew false positives, a modern UI, intuitive workflows, and sensible data organization.

InsightAppSec is delivered via the cloud so you are up and running in minutes, identifying the critical security risks that exist in your applications.


Identify web application risks quickly and painlessly

With InsightAppSec, there is no installation of on-premise components required—just log in and start scanning – simple!  The intuitive workflows make it easy for you to test your applications passively (without service interruption) or during downtime prior to new releases or updates being released.

Simple does not mean less powerful. Scans in InsightAppSec can be configured to meet your testing needs and ensure comprehensive coverage of your applications and all without the steep learning curve of other application testing solutions.


Effective scan coverage for modern applications and APIs can be a problem for some DAST tools, but InsightAppSec’s scan engine has been developed with these challenges in mind and proven to overcome them.

Implementing InsightAppSec will not only save time thanks to the easy-to-learn interface, but you will also avoid the time-consuming training that other DAST tools require to get required coverage of your applications.  

Although InsightAppSec lives in the cloud, it can also scan your internal apps (like pre-production instances), with a scan engine deployed on-premise.  All scan results are stored in the cloud, so that you have a single view of all your application vulnerabilities.

With InsightAppSec, you can:

  • Get up and running in minutes

  • Crawl and attack your modern applications and APIs

  • Scan external and internal applications

Manage your application portfolio at-a-glance

Web applications these days are rarely monolithic. They have complex multi-component architectures (like decoupled front ends that interface with micro-services that transact with the backend), as well as multiple instances (like development, pre-production, and production). InsightAppSec provides the flexibility to configure scans to optimize coverage and testing for each individual aspect of an application, whether an API or a Single Page Application (SPA) front end.

InsightAppSec is designed to group scan targets into application portfolios. All scans for an application, its components, and instances appear in a single application portfolio view, making scan management simple.  The Live Vulnerability View provides a single, concise view of scan results for an application portfolio and displays an always up-to-date listing of vulnerabilities detected in your application portfolios.  Maintenance of historical information provided from each vulnerability, enables you to have the context to make critical prioritization decisions.

With InsightAppSec, you can:

  • Group scan targets into application portfolios

  • View all vulnerabilities across multiple scans and scan targets in a single view

  • Use Live Vulnerability View to quickly filter down results and dynamically assign status and severity to reflect your priorities

Share actionable insights resulting in the right fix

Exposing application security vulnerabilities is a vital step towards reducing your application security risk.  Managing that risk also requires keeping various stakeholders informed and arming your development teams with the actionable information they need to fix vulnerabilities.  InsightAppSec provides detailed technical information on each identified vulnerability along with remediation recommendations.

InsightAppSec reports can be customised, whether for executive stakeholders wanting an at-a-glance overview of their application security risk, or developers who need technical details to remediate.  Additionally, the Attack Replay feature empowers developers to confirm vulnerabilities on their own.  Static reports are not always enough to prove to development teams or developers that a vulnerability exists; the Attack Replay function makes it possible for developers to reproduce the issue themselves and after a remediation fix is implemented, test it immediately to verify application security.

  • Act by leveraging detailed explanations of vulnerabilities, with technical details and remediation recommendations

  • Generate tailored reports of vulnerabilities for various business stakeholders

  • Empower developers with Attack Replay so they can confirm vulnerabilities on their own and test their fixes immediately

With InsightAppSec, you can:

You can be DevSecOps optimal.
