Frequently Asked Questions

Web Application Scanning is a zero touch, non- intrusive, cloud based solution, which helps safeguard web applications by continuous and comprehensive scanning for vulnerabilities and malware. It comprises of two variants:-

  • Web Application Scanning Advanced provides organisations with a comprehensive security posture snapshot of their web applications risk exposure on a continuous basis, with the help of automated testing combined with security expert validated proof of concept (POC) support and elimination of false positives.
  • Web Application Scanning Premium provides in-depth web application penetration testing for mission critical enterprise websites that need a broad and in depth security coverage addressed by continuous automated web application scanning combined with security expert validated business logic checks, proof of concept support and elimination of false positives.

WAS is a complete scanning tool. It offers vulnerability assessment, application audit and malware monitoring. It is a zero touch, non-intrusive cloud-based solution that provides daily monitoring for web applications, checking for systems and application vulnerabilities, and malware. One of the key aspects of WAS is its ability to detect malware and defacements of websites.

No changes are required on the website either. The monitoring is done remotely and we can detect both known as well as unknown malware in website. We have been researching and innovating for a couple of years in this area and are the best in class for such technology. We have dedicated our research, engineering and development teams to track latest malwares, threats and their behavior. It allows us to constantly refine and improve our technology and solutions to serve our customers better.

It is activated online over the web itself and the customer receives a notification via email with details of the activation. There is no need to download the software into your computer.

The Web Application Scanning tool is architected on globally accepted best practices such as OWASP, OSSTMM, SANS and NIST using a combination of tools and manual techniques through certified analysts. It is hosted and delivered from SAS 70 Type 2 certified secure data center.

The presence of an Indusface seal certifies that the particular website is scanned and certified on a daily basis to pass the Web Application Security Scan. The “live” Indusface ‘Tested’ Seal appears on the website with that day’s corresponding date only when the website passes the daily Web Application Scanning. This assists the website owners to gain the trust of their customers who feel safe when accessing such websites. Criteria of a ‘PASS’ scan means that the web application is free of any vulnerabilities. A criterion of a ‘FAIL’ Scan status means that vulnerabilities are present, and some of them have a severity of 4 which is HIGH or which is CRITICAL. If any kinds of vulnerabilities or malwares are found on the website, the secure site seal will be there on the website for next 72 hrs but the date will not be updated till the risk or threat is over. If the website owner does not take any action or however, if the errors are not fixed even after 72 hrs, the secure site seal will disappear though the scanning will still continue. Once the error is fixed and there are no vulnerabilities or malwares found on the website, the secure site seal will reappear on its own with the updated date and the mention of ‘ TESTED’ again beside it.

  • On confirmation of purchase, you can register your website(s) using the license key provided to you or our sales representative can register your website on behalf of you.
  • You will then receive an activation confirmation. Click on the activation link, put in any additional information.
  • On completion, your website is ready for scanning and you will get the reports of your choice e-mailed to you and the colleagues who you choose to be in the loop.

The scan profiles are defined after an in-depth research to ensure minimal load is generated on the customer’s application infrastructure. WAS scan profiles are light, non-intrusive and with a comprehensive coverage of vulnerabilities. Hence, the load generated on the website in minimal. DOS/DDOS attacks are excluded from the scan profile.

Once your account is activated with Web Application Scanning, your web developer or website administrator can download the secure site seal script from your online account and add it to the appropriate pages. Once done, the secure site seal will appear immediately on the desired pages, once your website has successfully cleared the Web Application Scanning and tests.

Our scan engine scans the website from various perspectives under services like Vulnerability Assessment, Application Audit and Malware Monitoring. The scan also ensures that there are no malwares or vulnerabilities in the website. If any vulnerability is found while scanning, it is notified to the user through the reports as well as in the Security Information Centre.

The user is then expected to take prompt action to get rid of the malware or vulnerability. The presence of the Indusface secure site seal on the website depends on the scan results. If there is any kind of malware or vulnerability with severity 4 (HIGH) or 5 (CRITICAL) found on the website, the date on the secure site seal will stop changing but the secure site seal will stay for the next 72 hours. If the error is still not resolved / fixed, the secure site seal will go off in 72 hours.

In order to make a website hack-proof, one would have to try to break into it in much the same way as a hacker would. In other words, the Web Application Scanning on some occasions could indeed be detected as a malicious attack on the IDS/IPS under network scan. What is of greater significance however; is that some of the scans may go undetected even by IDS/IPS as it continues to focus on attack vectors hitherto for unknown. In the end, the objective is to find vulnerabilities that could make your website susceptible to attacks.

  • The scan engines secure your website from Web Application, System and Network Vulnerabilities, and Malwares.
  • Vulnerabilities related to web application, such as XSS, Redirections, and injection attacks.
  • Vulnerabilities related to systems such as web application server, incorrect server configurations, weak system access password, system patches and access control.
  • Malware Monitoring checks for any presence of malware or malign scripts on the web site that may affect the visitors visiting the website.

it is a zero-touch solution which does not require any installation or updating of any kind of application for it to scan and hence no hardware or software installation is required to begin using Web Application Scanning.

Yes. The function of the antivirus is to protect your server against the incoming known viruses, worms and trojans. The Web Application Scanning monitors your website from the outside to detect and report any vulnerability or weakness that would allow unauthorized access to your site. Such vulnerabilities need not arise only because of a malicious code, but they could infect a site through a legitimate software or equipment that is either poorly configured or not updated regularly. Web Application Scanning complements an anti-virus solution in protecting one’s website.

Web Application Scanning provides every valid account an online web based Security Information Centre, which provides a comprehensive snapshot of reported vulnerabilities and malware, remediation suggestions as well as several alert and support options.

The key benefits of website application security scanning is that it helps organizations achieve compliance, increases customer confidence and trust, reduces overhead expenses towards managing website downtime and also legal battles or other related implications due to lax security measures.

  • Higher financial returns
  • Faster time to market
  • Improved processes
  • Reduction in costs (Capital/ recurring/ sales cost)
  • Enhanced productivity
  • Customer satisfaction & loyalty
