One of the main drivers in adopting cloud services is quick and easy deployment of web applications and APIs that support your business. But attackers view them as ripe targets because they handle sensitive data and are often developed without security in mind. Any web application could be a foothold into your organization and lead to a data breach if a latent vulnerability such as SQL injection or remote code execution were successfully exploited. Using Qualys Web Application Scanning (WAS) continues to be an effective way to identify app-layer vulnerabilities quickly and reliably across different environments. This session will describe new capabilities in Qualys WAS such as better scan coverage and vulnerability detection, improved usability, automated scanning in CI/CD pipelines, and much more. This talk will also dive into the WAS roadmap for 2019, including some exciting changes coming to the UI and API testing capability.
