Pros
"Reporting, centralized dashboard, and bird's eye view of all vulnerabilities are the most valuable features.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the ability to make our customers more secure.""When we are integrating it with SSC, we're able to scan and trace and see all of the vulnerabilities. Comparison is easy in SSC.""The solution is able to detect a wide range of vulnerabilities. It's better at it than other products.""Fortify WebInspect is a scalable solution, it is good for a lot of applications.""The solution is easy to use."

"After the assessment, you clearly know which assets require penetration testing."

Cons
"Fortify WebInspect could improve user-friendliness. Additionally, it is very bulky to use.""The scanner could be better.""A localized version, for example, in Korean would be a big improvement to this solution.""It requires improvement in terms of scanning. The application scan heavily utilizes the resources of an on-premise server. 32 GB RAM is very high for an enterprise web application.""Lately, we've seen more false negatives."

"A great idea would be to make a mobile application for the ImmuniWeb portal so that all information would be available on the go and from a mobile phone as well. It would be much more convenient."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Its price is almost similar to the price of AppScan. Both of them are very costly. Its price could be reduced because it can be very costly for unlimited IT scans, etc. I'm not sure, but it can go up to $40,000 to $50,000 or more than that."
  • "The price is okay."
  • "This solution is very expensive."

    Questions from the Community
    Top Answer:I would like to recommend Checkmarx. With Checkmarx, you are able to have an all in one solution for SAST and SCA as well. Veracode is only a cloud solution. Hope this helps.
    Top Answer:When we are integrating it with SSC, we're able to scan and trace and see all of the vulnerabilities. Comparison is easy in SSC.
    Top Answer:There are many products out there that work as a WAF. WAF is not really aware of the application it is securing. There are solutions that block DDoS attacks (it needs a bit of muscle power as well)… more »
    Top Answer:After the assessment, you clearly know which assets require penetration testing.
    Top Answer:I would advise users to start with a small package. Other packages may look costly for an SMB. That said, the price/value ratio is perfect.

    Overview

    Fortify WebInspect is an automated DAST solution that helps security professionals and QA testers uncover security vulnerabilities and configuration concerns by providing complete vulnerability detection. This is accomplished by mimicking real-world external security attacks on a live application in order to discover and prioritize concerns for root-cause study. Fortify WebInspect provides a number of REST APIs for easier integration, as well as the ability to be maintained via an intuitive UI or totally automated.

    Fortify WebInspect may be used as a completely automated solution to suit DevOps and scaling requirements, and it integrates seamlessly with the SDLC. REST APIs aid in closer integration by automating scans and ensuring that compliance standards are satisfied. Users can make use of pre-built integrations for Micro Focus Lifecycle Management (ALM) and Quality Center, as well as other security testing and management platforms.

    Teams may reuse current scripts and tools thanks to powerful connectors. Any Selenium script can be simply integrated with Fortify WebInspect. Fortify WebInspect supports Swagger and OData formats via the WISwag command line tool, allowing it to work with any DevOps workflow. A scan template can be pre-configured by ScanCentral Admin and sent to users to scan their apps, with zero security knowledge required.

    Fortify WebInspect Features

    Fortify WebInspect has many valuable key features. Some of the most useful ones include:

    • Security testing of functional applications (FAST): FAST can use all of the functional tests in the same way as IAST does, but it will continue crawling. FAST will not miss anything that a functional test misses.
    • Insights from a hacker's perspective: View discoveries such as client-side frameworks and version number. These are findings that, if not addressed, could lead to vulnerabilities.
    • Workflow macros HAR files: Fortify WebInspect can scan workflows with HAR files, ensuring that crucial content is not missed.
    • Management of compliance: Preconfigured policies and reports for all key online application security compliance regulations, such as PCI DSS, DISA STIG, NIST 800-53, ISO 27K, OWASP, and HIPAA.
    • Horizontal scaling can help you speed up your work: Using Kubernetes, horizontal scaling creates little versions of WebInspect that only process JavaScript. This allows the scans to run in parallel, resulting in significantly faster scans.
    • Scan any API for better accuracy: Get the complete picture on APIs, including SOAP, Rest, Swagger, OpenAPI, and Postman.
    • Managing the security of enterprise applications: To meet DevOps requirements, monitor trends within an application and take action on the most critical issues first.
    • Deployment options: With the flexibility of on-premise, SaaS, or AppSec-as-a-service, you can get started immediately and scale as needed.

    Fortify WebInspect Benefits

    There are many benefits to implementing Fortify WebInspect. Some of the biggest advantages the solution offers include:

    • Vulnerabilities are discovered faster and earlier.
    • Automation and agent technology can help you save time.
    • Users can utilize crawl web technologies and modern frameworks.
    • ScanCentral DAST helps you manage enterprise app security risk.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Fortify WebInspect stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. One major one is its robust centralized dashboard, which gives insight into all vulnerabilities.

    Milin S., an Information Security Architect at a real estate/law firm, writes of the product, “Reporting, centralized dashboard, and bird's eye view of all vulnerabilities are the most valuable features. The vulnerability management part of it is very easy. We can suppress or comment on each vulnerability and assign a vulnerability to an individual risk owner, which makes the work easy.”
