  • New Sample Application Onboarding. Get scanning faster! We’ve created a wizard to walk new users through the steps for scanning Google Firing Range sample data.

  • GraphQL Updates. We are giving GraphQL users more details to find vulnerabilities in their APIs. We've optimized the user experience associated with describing and recreating GraphQL vulnerabilities to show more details around GraphQL operations and queries.

  • REST API Updates. Not to be outdone by GraphQL, REST APIs get their own improvements so you have all the information you need to troubleshoot on the fly.

  • Recreate Findings Faster. When you drill into a specific finding you will see a new UI that has the "Response," "Request," and Evidence" sections all in one view so you can seamlessly recreate vulnerabilities without switching panels.

We are Thrilled to Present the First-Ever ZAPCon

Can We See Some ID?

When implementing security testing and vulnerability scanning, it is important to test all of your app’s paths, including the authenticated routes. Only scanning public routes can cause you to miss the majority of vulnerabilities, which are often hidden behind a credentialed login.

Implementing authentication flows can be tricky, so we have created a new blog series to walk you through how to configure the StackHawk scanner with different forms of authentication. 

Check out the blogs and keep your scans on lock 🔐
