If your web applications involve confidential data and web programming technologies (PHP, JSP, ASP, etc.), a health-check scan can scrutinize the applications for potential security risks or vulnerabilities. After scanning, a technical report is available to identify the potential security risks. The report prioritizes vulnerabilities and help developers to pinpoint what they need to fix first.
Sandbox Environment for Health-check Scanning
Health-check scanning may have potential drawbacks such as performance stress, data modification and email generation to your applications during scanning. We advise application owners to carry out health-check scanning within the sandbox environment which is isolated to avoid potential drawbacks during scanning. Arrangements for applications hosted in various hosting services are described in the section, Getting Started below.
