Security testing tools
Security testing tools are used to make sure that the data is saved and not accessible by any unauthorized user. To protect our application data from the threats, we will use these tools. These tools help us to find the flaws and security leakage of the system in the earlier stage and fix it, and test whether the application has encoded security code or not and accessible by the unauthorized users.
These may initially work on authorization, confidentiality, authentication, and availability types of aspects. With the help of these tools, we can avoid the loss of relevant information, the client's trust, sudden breakdown, additional costs required for repairing websites after an attack, and unpredictable website performance.
For this, we have the following tools available in the market:
It will generate the reports of the code coverage, complexity of code, repeated code, security weakness, and bugs. It offers complete analysis with multiple tools like Ant, Maven, Gradle, Jenkins, and so on.

ZAP [Zed Attack Proxy]
It is another security testing tool, which is established by OWASP, where it stands for (Open Web Application Security Project). It is an open-source tool that was written on the Java Programming language. If we use this tool as a proxy server, it offers the user to deploy all the traffic which passes over it. We can run this tool on the daemon mode that is exact through the REST API.
Features of ZAP
It is used to find the vulnerabilities of the web application uniquely and also validates that the weaknesses of the application are correct or incorrect. It can be easily accessible as Windows software. With the help of this tool, we can do automatic vulnerability assessment and fix the issues and avoid the resources-intensive manual procedures.
Features of Netsparker
It is another open-source security testing tool, which is used to find the security vulnerabilities of the web application. It supports the integrated browser environment, which helps us to identify the security issues of the highly complex web applications.
Features of Arachni
For more information about Arachni, refers to the below link:
It is an open-source tool, which is used to identify the vulnerability of the web application. It stands for the Iron Web Application Advanced Security Testing Platform. With the help of this tool, a user can make their custom security scanners. It was developed by using Python and Ruby programming languages.
