Invicti Security has folded the Netsparker identity under the overall parent brand name, streamlining its approach to the marketing and communications of its web application security offering.
According to Invicti and Netsparker, customers will continue to experience the same levels of web application security coverage, accuracy and automation, delivered under the Invicti name.
Kelly Davis-Felner, senior vice president of marketing at Invicti, indicated that the parent brand was expanding from its foundations of dynamic application security testing (DAST), interactive application security testing (IAST), software composition analysis (SCA) and API coverage.
“Today’s software-powered enterprises have a massive challenge in delivering secure web applications and keeping them secure. The Invicti brand stands for helping our customers meet that challenge,” Davis-Felner said.
In 2021, the Texas, USA based brand added nearly 750 new customers. The company predicts further growth, fuelled by a $625 million investment by Summit Partners, according to the company announcement.
Netsparker web application security services aim to give customers a complete picture of app security, including vulnerabilities and remediation efforts. Users can use the tool to help find all web assets and thoroughly scan web apps for security issues.
The latest release was a December 2021 Netsparker update, now known as Invicti Standard 6.3.
Invicti technical writer Tuncay Kayaoglu listed the highlights of this release as SCA, OWASP Top Ten 2021 reporting, and support for scanning GraphQL APIs.
“More web applications rely on third-party components, so your web application security also depends on the security of these components. It takes a lot of time and effort, however, to manually track whether these components have vulnerabilities and need updates to address these issues,” Kayaoglu said.
Invicti Standard 6.3 introduced an ability to check for third-party software libraries and report known security issues, according to the announcement.
Also, because a query language like GraphQL can make it easier and quicker to get data from a server to a client via API calls, providing more security for GraphQL is desirable, Kayaoglu said.
