Finding the right web application scanner; why black box scanning is not enough

This white paper shows how Acunetix AcuSensor Technology increases accuracy by combining black box scanning techniques with feedback from sensors placed inside the source code while the source code is executed.

Thanks to this innovative technology there are many advantages and many more vulnerabilities can now be found which with a typical black box scanner approach cannot be found. Another main advantage of using such technology is that when reporting a found vunlerability, the report provides more debug information such as the stack trace, the line where the source code leads to the found vulnerability and much more. 

This helps developers and pen testers solve the found vulnerabilities in a shorter time and helps them understand more what lead to the reported vulnerability.  This also is a mean to train developers to write more secure code in future web applications.
