From e-commerce to online banking, the world is interconnected with web applications. The prevalence of web applications makes them a prime target for cyber criminals. Failure to secure web applications can lead to serious financial and reputational consequences. 

Tenable.io Web Application Scanning provides comprehensive and automated vulnerability scanning for modern web applications. Tenable.io WAS enables users to quickly configure and manage web application scans in a matter of minutes with minimal tuning. The WAS Executive Summary dashboard brings together several of these key metrics to help executives easily identify and measure cyber risk discovered by Tenable.io WAS scans. 

Tenable.io Web Application Scanning provides comprehensive and accurate vulnerability scanning for OWASP Top 10 risks and other web application vulnerabilities. The WAS Overview dashboard presents users with three critical widgets: Web App Vulnerabilities by State (Last 14 Days), Top 100 Vulnerabilities By Plugins (Last 14 Days), Top OWASP Categories Discovered (Last 14 Days) and Top 100 Vulnerabilities By Application (Last 14 Days).

The Web App Vulnerabilities by State (Last 14 Days) widget provides executives with a view into the vulnerability life cycle. Executives can track the progress of risk mitigation efforts by tracking vulnerabilities through each state. The Top 100 Vulnerabilities by Plugin table provides executives with a list of vulnerabilities that have been detected by a given plugin, as well as the total number of applications that were reported by the plugin. The Top 2021 OWASP chart provides executives with a summary view of the vulnerabilities that fall into any of the ten categories provided by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP). The OWASP Top 10 list highlights several different aspects of web-based security, such as Cross-Site scripting attacks, Security Misconfigurations, and Sensitive data exposure. The focus of OWASP Top 10 is to reduce risk across the most vulnerable aspects of web applications across the internet. Following these guidelines enables organizations to reduce risk of organizational and customer data theft. The dashboard also includes the Top 100 Most Vulnerable Applications table, which presents a list of the top most vulnerable applications at risk for exploitation.

Security leaders need to SEE everything, PREDICT what matters most and ACT to address cyber risk and effectively align cybersecurity initiatives with business objectives. Tenable.io discovers and analyzes assets continuously to provide an accurate and unified view of an organization’s security posture. The requirement for this dashboard is: Tenable Web Application Security (WAS).
