A penetration test is an authorized simulated cyberattack on a computer system. It’s performed to evaluate the security of the system. The goal of a penetration test is to find the possibility of gaining access to the system for an unauthorized party. Based on the results of a penetration test, you can complete a full risk assessment.
SmartScanner simply automates this process. You only need to enter the address of your website and start the scan. SmartScanner automatically scans your website for technologies it uses and tests more than hundreds of vulnerabilities and attacks.
This scan process is unique per website. For example, SmartScanner doesn’t test for WordPress attacks if your site is not using WordPress. And, you don’t even need to tell SmartScanner what technologies your website is using.
After identifying a vulnerability, SmartScanner doesn’t stop there. It tries to confirm and evaluate the impact. For example, in command execution vulnerabilities, SmartScanner executes a harmless command and checks the results to confirm the impacts.
SmartScanner provides the severity of vulnerabilities and, based on total findings, calculates an overall risk factor for the target. Along with vulnerability reports such as issue descriptions and technical details, SmartScanner provides remediation actions for fixing the vulnerability.
Using SmartScanner, you can generate a PDF report or export a JSON file including all the findings and details with an executive summary.
