Acunetix is not just a web vulnerability scanner. It is a complete web application security testing solution that can be used both standalone and as part of complex environments. It offers built-in vulnerability assessment and vulnerability management, as well as many options for integration with market-leading software development tools. By making Acunetix one of your security measures, you can significantly increase your cybersecurity stance and eliminate many security risks at a low resource cost.

Automate and Integrate Your Vulnerability Management

To save resources, ease remediation, and avoid late patching, enterprises often aim to include web vulnerability tests as part of their SecDevOps processes. Acunetix is one of the best DAST tools for such a purpose due to its efficiency in both physical and virtual environments.

Acunetix integrations are designed to be easy. For example, you can integrate Acunetix scans in your CI/CD pipeline with tools such as Jenkins in just a few steps.

For effective vulnerability management, you can also use third-party issue trackers such as Jira, GitLab, GitHub, TFS, Bugzilla, and Mantis. For some issue trackers, Acunetix also offers two-way integration, where the issue tracker may automatically trigger additional scans depending on the issue state.

Acunetix offers its own API that you can use to connect to other security controls and software developed by third parties or in-house. In the case of enterprise customers, Acunetix technical experts will help you integrate the tool within atypical environments.

Trust the Most Mature and Fastest Vulnerability Scanning Tool

Acunetix is the first web security scanner on the market that is constantly being improved since 2005. It is a highly mature, specialized tool developed by web security testing experts. Such specialization made it possible to build a solution that is more effective than many bundled tools.

The Acunetix vulnerability scanning engine is written in C++, making it one of the fastest web security tools on the market. This is especially important when scanning complex web applications that use a lot of JavaScript code. Acunetix also uses a unique scanning algorithm – SmartScan, with which you can often find 80% vulnerabilities in the first 20% of the scan.

The speed goes in line with very high vulnerability discovery effectiveness. Acunetix is also known for its very low false-positive rate, which helps you save resources during further penetration testing and lets your analysts focus on new vulnerabilities. Acunetix also provides proof of exploit for many vulnerabilities.

To increase scanning efficiency, you can use multiple scanning engines deployed locally. Engines can work both with the Acunetix on-premises and cloud version.
