London, UK – November 27, 2006 – Acunetix, a leading web site auditing software vendor, today launched Acunetix SiteAudit, a new on-demand web security audit service. SiteAudit is designed to significantly enhance business website and web application security while eliminating related total cost of ownership.

The recent onslaught of criminal hacking activities shows that malicious hackers are becoming more refined in exploiting new technologies to wield out more elaborate and malicious attacks. Businesses require an inexpensive but highly rigorous auditing service of their websites. Acunetix SiteAudit is an immediate and comprehensive web security audit allowing organisations to benefit from extensive expertise, accuracy and flexibility to meet their security requirements. The on-demand service allows businesses to audit their websites including all related off-the-shelf and bespoke web applications.

Companies can rely on Acunetix SiteAudit to accurately identify all web security issues so that they can focus on fixing web application vulnerabilities. The service has been designed specifically to eliminate the installation, hardware, administration, and maintenance costs typically associated with purchasing and running software.

Acunetix SiteAudit is performed by Acunetix’s web security experts using Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner. Acunetix SiteAudit:

  • Provides an immediate and comprehensive website security audit
  • Ensures website is secure against web attacks
  • Checks for SQL injectionCross site scripting and other vulnerabilities
  • Audits shopping carts, forms, and dynamic content
  • Scans entire website and web applications including Javascript / AJAX applications for security vulnerabilities.

“Auditing your company’s website is critical, as even a single vulnerability could lead to the theft of sensitive corporate data such as credit card information. Not to mention the cost of lost revenue, severe fines, diminished customer trust and substantial damage to business reputation and credibility,” said Kevin J. Vella, VP Sales at Acunetix.

“The service is ideal for those whose business demands immediate and continual access to the latest technologies and best practices in web vulnerability scanning. Other businesses might neither have the in-house expertise needed to run auditing software efficiently and effectively, nor want to maintain in-house testing since this adds to overhead. Acunetix SiteAudit significantly reduces the cost of web security while, at $395 a scan allows broader adoption.”
