Proficiency test targeting Acunetix Partners and Licensed Users

Acunetix Academy CertificationLondon, UK – June 2016 – Acunetix, leaders in web application security software, have launched the Acunetix User Certification Test, a free programme designed for Partners and Licensed Users who wish to be accredited with Acunetix Certified status. Acunetix Certification will help boost Partners’ sales and credibility while Licensed Users will be able to prove their proficiency in the use of Acunetix.

The Acunetix User Test consists of a series of multiple choice questions, which assess candidates’ proficiency in the use of Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner and its associated technologies such as DeepScan, AcuMonitor and AcuSensor, as well as general questions about web application vulnerabilities and how to interpret scan results.

Boost your sales – Get Acunetix Certified

The free Acunetix Certification program is designed to increase Acunetix Partners’ profitability by giving them the resources and knowledge they need to sell Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner, and better support existing customers.

Being a certified partner is a significant differentiator over other non-certified partners as certified partners will be able to:

  • Gain greater customer confidence
  • Earn more from service revenue
  • Get listed on the Acunetix website

“Acunetix is a forerunner in website vulnerability scanning. Acunetix Partners already have the tools to increase their revenue and in addition to becoming certified they will have an extra advantage over other partners. Few vendors offer their partners free certification and resources and this is proof that we are here to give our partners everything they need to make more profit and gain more knowledge,” announced Chris Martin, General Manager at Acunetix.

We encourage all Acunetix Partners to take the certification test, learn all the new features and key benefits of Acunetix WVS and become Acunetix Certified. To do so, Partners must sign into their Acunetix Partner Program Portal and take the Acunetix User Test. Upon passing the certification, the partner will be awarded with a certificate and an Acunetix Certified logo for use on their website and office stationery to promote their Acunetix Certified Partner status.
