Company recognized for completeness of vision and ability to execute

AUSTIN, TEXAS – June 1st, 2021  Invicti Security™, a global innovator in web application security, today announced that it has been recognized for the first time in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing with its Netsparker and Acunetix1 products. The evaluation was based on specific criteria that analyzed the company’s overall completeness of vision and ability to execute. Both products were also named a 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Application Security Testing, as reviewed by customers.

One of only fourteen vendors selected for the Magic Quadrant this year, Invicti is changing the way web applications are secured.
