Product overview

PT Application Inspector is the right choice for applications of any size and industry. A unique combination of scanning methods—static application security testing (SAST), dynamic application security testing (DAST), interactive application security testing (IAST), software composition analysis (SCA), plus fingerprint and pattern matching— guarantees accurate results to defend applications everywhere from landing pages to corporate portals, online stores, banking apps, cloud services, and e-government portals.
  • With PT AI, security professionals win:

    • Detect and confirm security vulnerabilities without a deep dive into source code or the development process.

    • Make sure that a vulnerability can be exploited before spending time to fix it. PT AI automatically generates safe test requests (exploits) to check it.

    • Easily collaborate with the development team, creating tickets for them with one click.

  • So do your development teams:

    • Start using PT AI without additional setup. No access to a test environment required.

    • Detect confirmed and suspected vulnerabilities, focusing on the most critical ones.

    • Fix code quickly. PT AI shows details and exploitation conditions for each vulnerability and automatically recommends the best place to fix to jump-start the remediation process.



  • High-quality analysis

    The combination of static, dynamic, and interactive application security testing (SAST + DAST + IAST) delivers unparalleled results. PT Application Inspector pinpoints only real vulnerabilities so you can focus on the problems that actually matter.
  • Rapid remediation

    Accurate detection, automatic vulnerability verification, filtering, incremental scanning, and an interactive data flow diagram (DFD) for each vulnerability are special features that make remediation much quicker.
  • Fix early

    Minimize vulnerabilities in the final product and the costs of fixing them. Perform analysis at the earliest stages of software development.
  • Flexible workflow integration

    Security development lifecycle (SDL) full support. Integrates with most popular bug trackers systems, CI/CD and version control systems (Jira, Jenkins, TeamCity, and more).
  • Real-time protection

    Block application layer attacks with automatic export of vulnerability reports to PT Application Firewall. Your application always stays protected. PT AF blocks attacks at the firewall level—even when your team is still working to make a fix.
  • Regulatory and standards compliance

    PT AI helps you to regularly perform in-house compliance audit. Source code is checked for application security risks and undeclared functionality, easing compliance with key industry standards including PCI DSS.

Make vulnerability detection a team effort


Developing a secure application requires that everyone be on board. PT AI helps to create a culture of secure development by working for all stakeholders—QA, developers, security specialists, DevOps pros, and management—and giving them the tools they need to focus on their jobs and communicate effectively.




Customer cases

  • Rich Hong
    Confide CTO

    Confidential messaging provider Confide Inc. boosts consumer confidence with application security services from Positive Technologies:

    "Working with Positive Technologies was a dynamic and productive experience. Our team received a weekly report on the vulnerabilities found and the recommendations for remediation. This enabled us to get straight to work fixing weaknesses as soon as they were uncovered. We were really happy with the assessment work and how the project was conducted. We remain committed to continuously improving the security of our products and services and we look forward to working with the Positive Technologies team again in the future."

  • Konstantin Varov
    Managing Director, Diasoft Platform

    Diasoft chooses Positive Technologies for secure development:

    "Banks and other financial institutions are constantly experiencing increasingly sophisticated attempts by intruders to find vulnerabilities in their information systems. That is why security should be taken more seriously when developing banking information systems. And it is important to start being concerned about security at the earliest development stages, from the first line of code. Positive Technologies solutions help us to ensure the security of our clients."
