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.
No flaw simulator
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.
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!)
Management of 95 different vulnerabilities

A Headless browser can crawl and entirely map a web application. Indeed, a robot equipped with the Headless technology can behave like a real visitor by filling out forms, clicking on buttons or even by scrolling a page. The integration of this technology in a vulnerability scan will let the robot discover as many flaws as possible.
HTTPCS and Rapid7 both provide a Headless scanner which can browse and entirely analyze a web application or a website.
Flaws and Grey Box
Three kinds of penetration testing are possible, performed by HTTPCS but also by Rapid7:
⦁ The Black Box, which is a test performed without any authentication.
⦁ The Grey Box, which is a test performed with the same access rights as an authenticated user, like an area reserved for the members for example.
⦁ The White Box which is a test that analyzes the inner structure of a code only available for administrators.
Regarding the flaw management, Rapid7 incorporates over 95 types of different flaws, including the Top 10 OWASP ones. As for HTTPCS, the solution also detects the OWASP and CVE flaws, but it goes even further by implementing «zero-day» flaws on a daily basis, thanks to its vulnerabilities monitoring.
Flaws and Grey Box
Flaws and Grey Box
The false positive is the indication of a positive result when it actually is negative. In the case of a web application scanner, a false positive is a non-exploitable flaw by a hacker, but which is nevertheless reported as an exploitable flaw. These detected «flaws» will cause a huge waste of time for the technical teams and will slow down the securing process of an application because these teams will have to perform a manual re-processing of the reported flaws to check and confirm if they really are dangerous.
Thanks to an innovative robot, HTTPCS Security can simulate attacks on every detected flaw in order to guarantee a 0 false positive rate. Only «exploitable» flaws are reported with warnings to the HTTPCS User Dashboard. As a proof, HTTPCS allows replaying an attack simulation only by using a simple «simulation» button. Finally, HTTPCS Robot automatically detects when a flaw has been fixed and does not report it a second time.
The technology developed by Rapid7 reduces the false positives rate, but it cannot, in any way, guarantee a 0 false positive rate.
Solutions and specificities
The first specificity of Rapid7 is the incorporation of DevOps process management modules, which is the association of the Development and Operational teams within the same company in order to get a quick and prompt production process.
For a Web Application Scanner, it is the ability to detect vulnerabilities throughout the development of a web application. Therefore, the flaws are fixed before the application is even put online.
Rapid7 also offers an «Attack-Replay» feature. Slightly similar to the HTTPCS simulator, it can perform the scanner of a specific flaw and check a fix without reperforming a scan.
HTTPCS provides three additional modules along with its web application scanner:
HTTPCS and Rapid7 both function in SaaS mode. The user can access the scanners at any place and any time thanks to their user ID.

Pricing and support
The comparison below confirms the competitivity of HTTPCS in order to meet the needs of a company looking for a web application scanner.
Both Rapid7 and HTTPCS provide efficient solutions.
HTTPCS differentiates itself with its zero false positive guarantee, its included support and its pricing which includes all the upcoming updates. Its complementary modules may also be a heavyweight argument compared to its competitor, Rapid7.
