Web Application Vulnerability Scanning: An Affordable Cybersecurity Service

If there’s one thing history has taught us, it’s that the rapid evolution of web applications has forced companies to adapt and evolve their security techniques at an alarming rate. Regularly performing web application vulnerability scans can help businesses maintain their security against trending cyber threats. And with the high internal costs of developing and implementing a proper web app assessment methodology/solution, outsourcing your web application services offers an affordable alternative.

Identify Documented Vulnerabilities and Exposures within your Web Apps

Web application vulnerability scanning provides companies with the capability to discover vulnerabilities within their applications. Note that throughout the web app vulnerability scanning process, comprehensive automated testing will be used to identify application-related vulnerabilities.. At MainNerve, all of our web application vulnerability scans go beyond national standards such as NIST, and come with a detailed final report.

Test your web application against:

Data Injection


Data Injection

Cross Site
Scripting (XSS)

MainNerve web application vulnerability scans provide automated crawling and testing of web-based applications in order to identify vulnerabilities–which includes cross-site scripting (XSS) and SQL injection. MainNerve web application vulnerability scans are designed with the overarching goal of zeroing in on OWASTP Top 10 Risks, the industry standard for categorizing the most critical web app-based vulnerabilities. At the conclusion of the web application vulnerability scan, a comprehensive report will be provided to provide businesses with insight into how to eliminate identified vulnerabilities.

Web Application Vulnerability Scanning

MainNerve utilizes a blend of automated scans using opensource, as well as commercial tools. The results of the scan are reviewed by a highly-skilled MainNerve security engineer. A web application vulnerability scan (WAVS) is the discovery (spidering) of a web site, identifying potential test points within the web application and performing tests that focus on the OWASP Top 10 list of common vulnerabilities. A MainNerve WAVS will rate each vulnerability with a level of risk. No tests are performed to determine false positives. The goal of a WAVS is to identify as many potential vulnerabilities as possible.


MainNerve will prepare a final report detailing the results of the vulnerability scan. The report will, if relevant to the current project, contain the following sections:

  • Vulnerability Summary
  • Impact Summary
  • List of Vulnerabilities by Severity
    • Vulnerability
    • Impact
    • Remediation
    • Classification
    • Affected URLs

Deliverables will be provided via secure file transfer service by MainNerve. All final deliverables are shared only with approved parties.



Web App Penetration Testing

Web application penetration testing is designed to assess and test the state of your web-facing applications, and provide actionable remediation recommendations for enhancing your security. Ensure that your web applications are protected from malicious cyber threat actors. MainNerve web app pen tests are designed to review all types of web servers.


Compliance Solutions

MainNerve’s compliance solutions are designed to help fill one of the biggest challenges for businesses: staying in alignment with the exhaustive list of Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance (GRC) requirements. From PCI DSS and HIPAA, to CJIS and FINRA, MainNerve can help your business navigate the GRC landscape with specialized penetration tests.


Social Engineering

Social engineering, in the context of information security, is commonly defined as the of persuasion and/or manipulation techniques in order to influence people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. Ensure that your business is secure by testing and evaluating your employees against general phishing and “spear-phishing” attacks.
