web app scanner

Hello posters,

I'm looking for recommendations on a generally easy-to use web application scanner. It doesn't need to be free. It can be an application or server-based, but I'd like to steer clear of appliances.

I need one that can handle form, cookie, HTTP, and NTLM authentication and provides decent reporting and logging. Missing critical but hard-to-find vulnerabilities is acceptable, as long as the tool catches the most common issues (xss, plain text credentials, injection, etc) quickly.

Thanks for the opinions. :-D

Well you've got a lot of options here if you're welling to are a few (in no particular order)

1. IBM Rational AppScan (multiple versions)
2. HP WebInspect (multiple versions)
3. Cenzic Hailstorm (multiple versions)
4. Acuenetix WVS
5. NT Objectives NTOspider
6. nStalker Enterprise Edition
7. Burp Proxy

If I were you I would also strongly consider WhiteHat Sentinel, despite the fact that it's not an application based scanner, it's one of the better solutions out there.

Here is a report summary on some of these solutions
