Syhunt Dynamic 5.0 released with superior spidering and more - Last week we announced the release of Syhunt Code 5.0. Today we want to announce another great news for our application security testing product family. We are very proud to release Syhunt Dynamic 5.0. The new release of our web application security scanner comes with a greatly improved spider and browser emulator. In our tests, Syhunt Dynamic 5.0 was able to achieve near-100 percent WAVSEP WIVET 3 coverage - WIVET is an open source benchmarking project that aims to statistically analyze web link extractors and adopted as an extension to the WAVSEP - The Web Application Vulnerability Scanner Evaluation Project. The same WIVET version released by last year's WAVSEP benchmark was used in our internal benchmarking.

Leaving the previous Syhunt Sandcat Scanner Pro generation way behind when it comes to link extraction, Syhunt Dynamic 5.0 was able to achieve 94% WIVET coverage, the same high level of coverage achieved by other commercial tools such as HP WebInspect, Acunetix, IBM AppScan & Netsparker, which were able to achieve 94%, 92% and 91% respectively in last year's WAVSEP benchmark.

The higher rate means that Syhunt Dynamic's enhanced crawler is better equipped for handling malformed HTML and additional kinds of relative links, finding certain patterns in HTML comments, and has been fine-tuned for a variety of browser emulation tasks, such as JavaScript execution and DOM emulation, user interaction simulation, session and cookie handling, code analysis, and more. Combined with the already high rates of vulnerability detection that the previous generation offered, the enhancements make Syhunt Dynamic 5.0 even more well-suited for performing professional web application vulnerability assessments.

Over the past months, we've also put a lot of effort into refactoring the scan engine, the same way we did with the new version of Syhunt Code. Both Syhunt Dynamic and Syhunt Code 5.0 now also come with a new, easy-to-use, multi-tabbed user interface that can launch parallel scans. Both products are tightly integrated and have a multi-process architecture. The new version is currently undergoing tests by the WAVSEP project for their 2014 edition. As soon as the findings are out, we'll link them here.

Update (January 5, 2014): It has been officially announced by the WAVSEP project that Syhunt, HP WebInspect and NTO currently lead its 2014 WIVET score chart with 94% coverage.
