Acunetix by Invicti Security is an application security testing tool built to help small & mid-size organizations around the world take control of their web security.
We believe in empowering security teams to reduce risk across all types of web applications with fast scanning, comprehensive results and intelligent automation.
We know the proper tools can bridge the gap between security and development to reduce tension, finger pointing, and re-work to create a culture of security.
The Story So Far
Acunetix has spent more than a decade securing web applications. Pioneered in 2005, Acunetix was created at the very beginning of the transition from static web pages to true web applications (well before AWS or public cloud was even an idea).
From the beginning, Acunetix has led the market by continuously innovating with the aim of making it easier for small and medium-sized businesses to keep track of security issues and act fast to resolve them.
2005 – Acunetix was founded as the first automated tool to scan web applications and identify security issues.
2008 – AcuSensor, the first IAST solution on the market that works together with DAST was launched.
2014 – Next, Acunetix was launched as a cloud application.
2018 – Acunetix became part of Invicti Security, the leading global provider of DAST and IAST products.
2019 – The product was revolutionized by introducing unique scanning algorithms to deliver meaningful results as quickly as possible.
2021 and beyond – Acunetix has continued to stay ahead with capabilities in line with modern web development needs, such as scanning GraphQL API, scanning Node.js with IAST, and more.
Invicti Security is a global team that provides solutions to ensure web applications stay as safe as can be, helping organizations automate detection, streamline operations, anticipate threats, and act fast.
Headquartered in Austin Texas, Invicti was founded in 2018 by bringing together Netsparker and Acunetix, two brands that prevent costly data breaches and other security incidents by identifying web vulnerabilities from the early stages of application development through production.
Cybersecurity changes fast. Acunetix is built to evolve and stay ahead of those changes.
Our industry-leading dynamic and interactive application security testing (DAST and IAST) technology automates vulnerability management and empowers security teams to uncover more vulnerabilities, reduce false positives, increase productivity, and simplify remediation efforts.
Built by Security Experts from Across the Globe
Invicti Security was founded by security engineers who saw a need for positive change and innovation in the cybersecurity space. Instead of waiting for that change to come along, they built it themselves, starting with Acunetix, the first-ever automated web application security scanner.
Today, we continue that mission of technological pioneering with a team working out of offices in the US, UK, Malta, and Turkey. The Invicti team consistently drives innovation in the application security testing market and delivers industry-leading results to keep up with the fast pace of modern web development.
