Basic features of WebInspect - the kind of stuff great scanners are made of

Wondering what helps minimize the pain, stress and time required to run effective Web vulnerability scans? It's the things you can see in the toolbar of HP's WebInspect:

Start/Resume, Pause - because you're going to need to pause and resume your scans at some point.
Rescan - because you're going to want to re-run the scan again or re-test for the flaws uncovered previously.
Compare - because you're going to have a need to compare results for remediation validation testing, etc. eventually.

If you do this work enough, these types of vulnerability scanner features can have tremendous payoffs over the long haul.
