Starting a Scan
Starting a new scan will consist of adding a new application or selecting from an existing application, setting scan settings, and waiting for the scan to process.
Applications refer to deployment units that you want to scan for security issues. For example, the website, web-shop, and the intranet of a company would pose three different applications in most cases.
For information on how to add a new application please see the Create New Application page.
Scans + Rescans
Scans refer to the analysis of an application at a certain point in time. Most often, each scan will represent a new version of the application being scanned.
Once you have added your first application you will be able to start scanning for security issues. For more information on starting a scan see the Start A New Scan page.

After the scan has completed you will be able to navigate to, and review any issues found.
The scan summary shows the overall risk state, severity and vulnerability statistics, as well as related industry standards.
