Website security matters
Vulnerability management is a critical requirement for anyone running web applications or interactive and static websites. These public-facing assets are common attack vectors for malicious actors seeking unauthorized access to systems and data, so it’s important to make sure they’re secured properly with website security checks. You can scan website code and dependencies with Snyk in three steps:
1. Create an account
Create a Snyk account and connect your project repsitories.
2. Import a project
Import a project (or run a scan locally) to scan your website code and identify issues.
3. Review results
Review the scan results and make fixes to your website code based on the details of the issues found.

How does vulnerability scanning work?
Understand how vulnerabilities are detected and fixed throughout the software development lifecycle.
Vulnerability scanning helps to minimize risk and control vulnerabilities from the very beginning of website development.
Find and automatically fix vulnerabilities in your code and open source dependencies with Snyk.
Web vulnerability scanners scan application/website code to find vulnerabilities that compromise the application/website itself or its back-end services.
These site scanners work against a known list of common exploits that use various injection and evasion techniques to “hijack” web applications and websites in order to exfiltrate data, to trick users or systems into providing sensitive information, or to disrupt application performance. Some of the better known exploits are SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack, and malicious code.
