About Discovery Scans

Discovery Scanning

Discovery scans analyze your web application perimeter and perform focused searches for web applications within a defined IP address range or list of known hosts. Discovery scans then provide you with a detailed listing of the applications found. This list of applications can help you determine which applications to include in your Veracode Dynamic Analysis and DynamicMP scans.

Veracode designed Discovery and DynamicMP to run as part of a regular monitoring program. Discovery identifies relevant information, including protocol and port usage, deployed software, misconfigured DNS servers, and unique site fingerprints. Veracode DynamicMP can rapidly assess the security of the application perimeter identified by Discovery. DynamicMP scans hundreds of applications simultaneously to provide rapid risk assessment.

When configuring a Discovery scan, you can select which specific teams and Security Leads can see the results of a Discovery scan.
