A new Acunetix Premium update has been released for Windows and Linux: 15.7

We are sunsetting the support for Windows 8, Server 2012, and Server 2012 R2. 

To provide you with the best DAST product experience, we regularly update Acunetix. As a result of these updates and changes, we are required to sunset our support for Windows 8, Server 2012, and Server 2012 R2. 

The 15.7 updates will be the last ones that can work in the said operating systems. 

We recommend you upgrade your OS to the next major version (e.g., Windows 8.1 → Windows 10, Windows Server 2012/R2 → Windows Server 2016, 2019, or 2022) in order to continue receiving Acunetix version updates.

Closed beta: Internal site scanning with Acunetix on-demand

A closed beta version of internal site scanning is available for Acunetix on-demand users. If you need to scan internal sites, there’s a new possibility that you’ll find exciting.

With the new internal agent feature, you can install a Docker-based Internal Agent to scan your internal websites. Once deployed, this agent takes care of using the latest engine and ensures scans will be executed and results sent back to Acunetix on-demand.

Please note that this feature is currently in a closed beta phase. Are you interested in using this feature and providing your valuable feedback? We encourage you to reach out to Acunetix Support with the subject line “Opt in for the internal scanning beta program” to express your interest.
