We can detect more vulnerabilities with Acunetix than other scanners.
This Acunetix customer is a Spanish multinational financial services company serving nearly 18 million customers. Their business relies on many web applications, and keeping them safe is difficult. There are also regulations to follow, including PCI DSS, GDPR, and more.
The bank’s cybersecurity team must prevent web security issues at all costs. However, scanning every application manually is not possible. There are too many web assets to protect. One mistake could hurt the bank’s reputation.
The bank used a different web application scanner before Acunetix. After comparing the scanners, they decided to go with Acunetix Premium.
Today, the bank uses Acunetix Premium to scan websites, web applications, and APIs. Acunetix Premium then passes results to the bank’s vulnerability management system. There, developers can decide how to fix any issues.
Acunetix gives indications to areas which will require further manual testing.
Acunetix Premium’s automatic scanner can also handle a big workload. It can scan all of the internal and external applications for the cybersecurity team.
It would be impossible to do all the automatic scans in a manual way. As we are a bank with many regulations, it is a must to do automatic scans in all websites and applications.
Finally, Acunetix Premium is always improving. The bank is notified immediately of new features or product updates. The security team also enjoys Acunetix’s training webinars.
We have experienced an improvement over the course of the last few years in customer support and in product development.
