How does Microfocus WebInspect Tool work?
The working of Web inspect is very simple and has been broken down into 4 points:
1. Drill Down
Web inspect tool is an automated testing tool that helps in discovering configuration issues. It also aids to identify and prioritize security flaws in active applications. It can easily replicate the real hacking techniques used by real-life hackers and provides a complete analysis of web applications and services. WebInspect tools dashboard and reports provide complete visibility and risk factor associated with organizations.
2. Inside Context
Microfocus WebInspect gives you control over observations to reactions of applications at the code level conducted during scanning. It also helps in web page crawling and identification of applications to expand the coverage to attack and provide traces to confirm the identified vulnerabilities are correct.
3. Reports to be Actioned
Microfocus web inspect tool helps in creating exhaustive and quantifiable reports which are at par with business requirements. The responses are highlighted so that immediate attention is given to the attacks and flaws which are reported. The entire process can be easily repeated and retesting can be performed for the entire site, for a single flaw, or only for vulnerabilities. Apart from this, the result of the two scans can also be compared to further understand the difference or any combination.
4. Workflow Customization
The security intelligence of the enterprise can be centralised using the WebInspect tool which further aids in an in-depth understanding of the security risks of the organization. It provides you the ability and leverage to manage and view the security portfolio of the organization and track vulnerabilities and develop and confirm actions against it. It further allows you to view the progress of the trends detected.

After this crawl, an audit needs to be selected for the scan to begin.
Following are the type of scans available:
