This section provides a helpful overview of the findings and a visual representation of risk levels across all identified vulnerabilities.
How does the Website Vulnerability Scanner work?
The Website Vulnerability Scanner is a DAST (Dynamic Application Security Testing) tool which tries to discover vulnerabilities like XSS, SQL injection, HTTP Prototype Pollution, Directory Traversal, and more in running web applications.
The scanner interacts with the target application by sending numerous HTTP requests with specific payloads. If the application is vulnerable, these payloads will determine the code to behave abnormally, informing the scanner that a vulnerability exists.
It's really easy to scan your web application for vulnerabilities
No setup required
Being a cloud-based scanner, it just works out of the box. There’s no need to install anything on your end to scan public-facing web applications. Just create an account and start scanning.
It’s a really good idea to scan your web applications periodically since new vulnerabilities appear every day. With Pentest-Tools.com, you can schedule daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly scans against your web apps and automatically get reports via email or other channels when risks emerge.
Many of our customers prefer to trigger scans programmatically, through our REST API. This lets you integrate our scanner with your internal processes (CI/CD, data sources, custom applications) and reduces manual scanning work.
You can also use the Website Vulnerability Scanner to detect vulnerabilities in applications hosted on internal networks, intranets, private clouds, or restricted network segments. A quick and easy VPN Agent setup routes the traffic from our servers to your internal network and gets you ready to scan.
We know your security team loves their tools. So, we made sure ours plays nicely with favorites like Jira, Slack, Email, and Webhooks. Just set your rules and get your results automatically on any of these platforms when the scans are done.
Pentest-Tools.com is my team's first go-to solution. Anytime we are preparing to deploy a new version of our software, we run many tools to monitor and secure our environment, but the simplicity and ease we have with Pentest-Tools.com to run network and web server scans to highlight issues is unmatched.

Common questions about web vulnerability scanning
A web vulnerability scanner is a specialized software tool designed to automatically identify security flaws within web applications. A reliable, robust website security scanner should be able to mimic real attacker tactics and identify realistic, exploitable security issues.
Our Website Vulnerability Scanner is a robust example of this type of tool, offering a comprehensive scan that identifies threats and also validates them to reduce false positives.
It works by interacting with the target application, sending a series of HTTP requests with specific payloads, and analyzing the responses to detect potential vulnerabilities such as Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), SQL injection, and other pressing security issues and misconfigurations.
