HTTPCS handles the latest-generation dynamic web content with its Headless Robot crawling the whole application.
100% mapping with Headless process
HTTPCS Security performs its tests with authentification (Grey box) and can handle complex authentifications like SSO (Single Sign On)
Grey Box tests option
The robot handles complex SSO (Single Sign On) authentifications
The HTTPCS security audits are automatically performed on a daily basis without any human intervention. Detailed reports reveal the exploitable security flaws.
scan scheduling option
The attack simulation feature only reveals the truly exploitable security flaws. It can help you understand the risks incurred.
Simulation of attacks, with "proof-based" function
HTTPCS offers a 0 false positive guarantee with its simulator. This guarantee saves time for the technical teams, that don't have to deal with the non exploitable flaws.
Lack of false positives guarantee, with "Dead-accurate" function
The flaws are cleverly and automatically listed according to their criticity level. The technical team can therefore immediately see the flaws that need to be fixed first.
Prioritization of flaws according to their criticity level
Indications and fixes to apply for each flaw are provided and detailed in each report.
No tool to help fix the flaws
The fixed flaws are detected and moved to a specific area dedicated to automated audits.
No automatic detection of the fixed flaws
Our pentesting teams can detect any kind of vulnerability (Top 10 OWASP, CVE, 0 Day attacks and more!)

The Headless browsing is essential for a flaw scanner because it gives the possibility to obtain a 100% mapping of a web application or a website. It covers a whole web application, even if there is dynamic content which varies from one visitor to another. The robot will behave like a real human would and will be able to scroll entire pages, fill out dynamic forms, click on pictures or “call to action”…
The two vulnerability scanners, HTTPCS and Netsparker are equipped of this technology and also offer a 100% mapping.
Flaws and Grey Box
During an audit, there are three levels of tests: Black Box, Grey Box and White Box.
⦁ The «Black Box» mode is an audit without any authentication. The scanner does not need any information to perform its intrusion test. It performs it in the same conditions as an external hacker.
⦁ «Grey Box» audit scans a web application while giving the scanner access to the member area that is usually only accessible for authenticated users.
⦁ The «White Box» is an audit in which the robot is given access to the code as an administrator, in order to detect as many flaws as possible.
Netsparker and HTTPCS both perform Grey Box authentication tests.
Both applications can detect thousands of different flaws, from the Top 10 OWASP or CVE already known, but they do not only focus on «public» flaws!
The «zero-day» flaws, which are new, are also processed by both scanners thanks to a constant monitoring of the technical teams in order to always improve the robot.
Once again, HTTPCS and Netsparker, both offer, similar features.
Flaws and Grey Box
Flaws and Grey Box
In cybersecurity, a false positive is an alter reporting an exploitable flaw when it is not. A false positive implies a considerable waste of time for the operational teams because they will have to manually verify if the flaw is truly exploitable or not. This false positive management is not important in a rational securitization process of a web application.
HTTPCS and Netsparker are very qualified regarding false positive processing.
Netsparker is proudly qualified as «Dead-Accurate» about false positives. Thanks to its « Hawk » device, Netsparker will not only notify the flaw location, it will also test it and report it to the customer only if it appears to be truly exploitable.
HTTPCS also has a flaw simulation device and is guaranteed «Zero false positive».
Compared to Netsparker, theHTTPCS simulator goes further because the user can directly simulate and replay each single flaw by simply clicking on a button.
HTTPCS and Netsparker are the only actors on the market of web application scanners to process false positives this way and to present a 0 false positive guarantee to their customers.
Solutions and specificities
Netsparker provides the incorporation and the management of DevOps protocols. The DevOps is defined as the association between the development and operation teams within a company, in order to obtain a quick and prompt production process.
In the case of a web application scanner, it consists in the ability to analyze and detect vulnerabilities through every step of a web application development process. These flaws are detected and fixed before the application is even put online.
The second point that differentiates Netsparker is its compatibility with external solutions thanks to its inter-operability feature.
HTTPCS, on its part, provides three complementary modules to its web application scanner:
HTTPCS, unlike Netsparker, is a SaaS software (even if an appliance request is possible). It is consequently much faster, uses much less resources than the Netsparker solution. The scan can be tracked, studied or performed from any device connected to the internet.

Interface’s overview of our web vulnerability scanner
The interface is called «User Dashboard», it is streamlined, and it presents a retractable side menu to switch from a software to another, to contact a dedicated account manager quickly or even to consult the FAQ.
Regarding HTTPCS Security, the interface easily handles the different web application, to consult global reports and flaw reports with accuracy (Top 10 OWASP and CVE).
Netsparker interface also enables to observe the different applications, their reports, their flaws and the scan history, but Netsparker interface contains many menus, panels and information which complicates the comprehension of the tool. Many reviews from Netsparker users confirm the difficulty to get familiar with the tool.
In terms of features, the two solutions are really classic, but the differentiation point is the ergonomics that is more developed on the HTTPCS interface.
Based on the features and specificities of these applications, HTTPCS obtained a grade of 29/30 against 23/30 for NetSparker.
This grade gives an advantage to HTTPCS which is best to meet the needs of a company looking for a web vulnerability scanner.
Netsparker and HTTPCS both provide performant solutions.
HTTPCS is much more diversified, cheaper and benefits from a support which speak seven languages including English and French. In order to secure web applications, the diversity offered by HTTPCS makes it the favorite one.
