Comparison between different Vulnerability Scanning Tools

Nowadays security risks are very high due to which security testing is very important. Through security testing we can identify loop holes in a system, network or computer software. Security testing helps us to determine that software or system prevents unauthorized access to data and maintains the functionality of system.

There are different types of security testing and Vulnerability scanning is one of the types. Vulnerability scanning is an automated way of determining points of exploit in a network, system or computer software. Following are the top 10 vulnerabilities according to OWASP which is a charitable organization whose objective is to improve security of software and following vulnerabilities must be identified by any good vulnerability scanner.

  1. Injection
  2. Broken Authentication
  3. Sensitive Data Exposure
  4. XML Eternal Entities (XXE)
  5. Broken Access Control
  6. Security Misconfiguration
  7. Cross Site Scripting
  8. Insecure Deserialization
  9. Using Components with Known Vulnerabilities
  10. Insufficient Logging and Monitoring

We have different vulnerability scanners which automate this process. Following are some famous commercial vulnerability scanners.

  • Netsparker
  • BurpSuite

There are some factors on the basis of which we can find best suited vulnerability scanner. Here is the comparison between Acunetix, Burp Suite and Netsparker on the basis of following factors.
