US Air Force Chooses AcunetixUS Air Force Chooses Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner to Secure Against Web Application Vulnerabilities

USA, June 13 2011 – Acunetix, developer of leading website security scanning software, today announced that the United States Air Force has selected Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner to defend against millions of cyber-attacks every day.

The US Air Force runs mission-critical web applications on several hundred web servers and therefore needs to have the highest level of security possible. The US Air Force needed a scanner that was flexible and highly configurable in order to meet their strict internal IT policies. With the competitive price and high level of support Acunetix also provides, it became the web scanner of choice.

“We tried eEye’s Retina web security scanner, HP’s WebInspect and another dozen web security tools, but only Acunetix WVS gave us the ability to modify vulnerability checks and scan for the ever growing threat of web application vulnerabilities. The speed in which it performs the checks is also unbeatable.  Acunetix has proven itself and is worth the cost.” – Mr. Rodgers, US Air Force

“Acunetix is able to make in depth checks for security vulnerabilities and features AcuSensor technology which allows it to increase the accuracy, find more vulnerabilities and reduce false positives. We are proud that the US Air Force relies on Acunetix and its cutting edge technology in the defense of their web servers. As Acunetix WVS is being used by international organisations, institutions and companies, Acunetix has the experience to match the demands of the US Air Force.” – Nick Galea, Acunetix CEO
