Web Vulnerability Scanner

The best defense against becoming the next headline

If you don't have a formal application security review process in place, you are behind the curve. We have seen a monumental shift towards protecting web applications. Security-minded industry leaders have defined and implemented extensive application review processes for their new projects, development cycles and legacy applications.

Protection of the application layer has become a top priority for large organizations over the past ten years, and the majority of small and mid-sized companies are finally beginning to mirror that shift. This trend is well justified. If your reputation is important to you, protect it!

Introducing Acunetix Version 12!

Acunetix, the pioneer in automated web application security software, has announced the release of version 12. This new version provides support for JavaScript ES7 to better analyse sites which rely heavily on JavaScript such as SPAs. This coupled with a new AcuSensor for Java web applications, sets Acunetix ahead of the curve in its ability to comprehensively and accurately scan all types of websites. With v12 also comes a brand new scanning engine, re-engineered and re-written from the ground up, making Acunetix the fastest scanning engine in the industry.

Enhancing Your Toolset with Acunetix

Manual code review and manual penetration testing can be very time consuming, and tend to create an unnecessary burden on your internal security teams. We recommend automating as much of the application security process as possible. Automated vulnerability scans can help your team to cover a lot more ground without an overly strenuous amount of money, time or effort.

There are many automated scanning tools on the market. Most come with a hefty price tag, but not Acunetix, which remains affordable while still providing ample coverage for any language or framework. Regardless of the tools that you ultimately choose, it is important to think of application security as a necessity, not a luxury. Hackers and malicious users are growing more and more sophisticated; it is critical that you stay in front of the curve.

The Technology Leader in Automated Web Application Security

Acunetix boasts innovative functionality and proprietary features that make their Web Vulnerability Scanner the most popular tool on the market. The sophisticated crawler, utilizing Acunetix Deepscan Technology, can capture a complete site structure better than any other tool on the market. For exceptionally complex websites, Acunetix provides a manual crawling feature that allows users to supplement the automated crawl, helping to ensure that the entire site structure has been captured.

Acunetix provides industry leading support for vulnerability checks against critical vulnerabilities from the OWASP Top 10, including SQL injection and cross-site scripting.

The proprietary AcuSensor Technology reduces the false-positive rate by combining black box scanning techniques with feedback from sensors placed inside the source code. This not only finds more vulnerabilities, but also identifies the exact line of source code where a vulnerability is located, making remediation efforts a breeze.

Put Acunetix to the Test

We strongly encourage you to evaluate the Acunetix tool in your own environment.

Every developer has their own way of writing code, and every administrator has their own way of configuring servers and web applications. You'll never know whether your site is safe unless you scan it (or wait until it's too late). Don't take our word for it that Acunetix is the best scanner on the market – try it for free and decide for yourself.

In our experience, the Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner speaks for itself. It provides the most comprehensive and accurate scans of any tool on the market. And if you need additional support with building or enhancing your web application security practice, don't hesitate to reach out to us!
