Micro Focus Fortify WebInspect – New Updates

The following features have been added to Fortify WebInspect.

Engine Updates – Big Improvements on Modern Apps

We’ve updated our engines to keep pace with our customer’s evolving applications! The engine update brings dramatic improvements to WebInspect’s ability to scan applications built with modern JavaScript frameworks.

Single-Page Application (SPA) Coverage Visualization

The new engine provides an improved visualization of Single-Page Applications.

For more information, watch the “Scanning Single-Page Apps” video on the Fortify Unplugged YouTube channel.

Macro Recorder Updates

The Macro Recorder is now on by default across all areas of WebInspect. The updated recorder delivers an improved experience when recording both login and workflow macros.

For more information, watch the “Recording Macros in Macro Recorder 5.0” video on the Fortify Unplugged YouTube channel.

Upgraded Rescan Technology

Rescan capabilities deliver a dramatically faster, more flexible, and more reliable experience. Our new rescan technology is better at replaying complicated attack sequences and is available via the UI, API, and CLI.

Authenticated API Scanning with Postman

We’ve continued to simplify API scanning and automation by adding the ability to handle authenticated API scanning to our Postman integration.

Selenium WebDriver Login Macros

Building on the Selenium WebDriver support from our last release, WebInspect now supports using a Selenium WebDriver script as a login macro.
