Online Vulnerability Scanner

Hit all your targets with our online vulnerability scanner that's optimized for painless reporting

Right now, security teams and pentesters must pick between a wide variety of diverse, specialized tools. Why? Because purchasing and trialing every tool out there is an unaffordable drain on resources. Selection and compromise are business necessities.

We offer a way to integrate pentesting favorites – from online vulnerability scanners to issue tracking (e.g. Jira), and reporting – so you can reduce your technical debt and maintenance costs.

You need an online scanner with range, flexibility, and impact

The good news is you don't need to find multiple scanners or large chunks of extra time to configure and use them one by one. We built Pentest-Tools.com to provide you with online vulnerability scanners with wide target ranges, adjustable settings, and actionable results.

You need an online vulnerability scanner that matches different target types you have in your engagements. Pentest-Tool.com provides you with a range of web vulnerability scanners that:

  • Discover common web app vulnerabilities and identify web server configuration issues
  • Find exploitable vulnerabilities in different Content Management Systems such as our online WordPress vulnerability scanner
  • Map all services exposed on the network perimeter and discover vulnerabilities relevant to external and internal networks

You can use any of these tools to scan the target application as an authenticated user. And you can perform scans remotely, without authentication, simulating an external attacker.

We also provide scanners with optimized and flexible settings. Our pentesters already configured them with optimal settings for best performance and results. This simplifies and speeds up your workflow and engagements.

And all our scan settings are fully configurable. You can choose between light and full scans, or whether to skip some initial security checks. You also have the ability to select between different attack options.

An online scanner with comprehensive coverage and specialized settings produces high-quality results. All our scan results are:

  • Transparent – we provide lists of all vulnerability tests performed

  • Summarized – each report contains an overview of our findings

  • Filtered – all detected vulnerabilities are ranked by risk or you can combine filters for more specific reports

  • Actionable – our reports contain a detailed explanation of risks and recommendations for fixing identified security gaps

  • Multi-purpose – you can use report results for various types of engagements, such as website penetration testing, security self-assessments, or third-party website security audits

Pentest-Tools.com has all the features we need

Prior to Pentest-Tools.com, we used several different tools that performed a wide range of functions for us. Now, we don't use them anymore because we don't need to. Pentest-Tools.com has all the features we need, like API, VPN and network scanning. It reports quickly and well. It maps attack surfaces. And it automates a lot of our manual work

What online vulnerability scanners do you offer?

We've talked about the wide scope of our vulnerability scanning tools. But what do you get for your investment?

Our tools centre around web vulnerability scanners that discover common web app vulnerabilities (e.g. SQL injection, cross-site scripting, and others in the OWASP Top 10) and identify web server misconfigurations (e.g. missing HTTP headers). You can also use them to scan the target application as an authenticated user.

Next, we have network vulnerability scanners. They map all services exposed on the network perimeter and discover vulnerabilities relevant to networks, like outdated services, missing security patches, and badly configured servers.

Finally, our web CMS scanners find exploitable CVEs in the most popular content management systems, such as our Joomla vulnerability scanner. Our reports include discovered plugins, themes, and information about out of date versions and components.

There are various reconnaissance tools and offensive tools too that help with your discovery and attack surface mapping, so you can identify and prioritize for remediation those security vulnerabilities that malware might use as entry points.

    Authenticated scanning for web apps and networks

    An authenticated scanning option is vital for any reliable online vulnerability scanner. The capability to scan web apps as an authenticated user means you can scan websites that require authentication as a logged-in user. You also may need an internal scanning network option so you can scan targets from a private network over VPN.

Each workspace generates an Attack Surface.

    Finally, in the Team tab, under Shared Items, our platform provides a view of the complete list of team members, granted permissions, wordlists, and other shared resources. This gives you a transparent overview of your entire team setup and makes collaboration a lot more effective.

  5. 5
