Ultimate Flexibility and Scalability
Acunetix is the most flexible web application security scanner on the market. Though both Acunetix and Qualys offer a software-as-a-service model, Acunetix also offers an on-premise version of its web vulnerability scanner, perfect for security teams that prefer to run tools within their own infrastructure, or for an internal penetration testing setup. Acunetix can run on both Windows and Linux, meaning Acunetix will work no matter what stack you depend on.
For companies that prefer to perform their web application vulnerability scanning from their own infrastructure but need to scale it up with time, Acunetix offers the multi-engine setup. With Acunetix multi-engine, security analysts can control multiple remote scanners, access results, and perform vulnerability management from a single web-based console.
Comprehensive, Fast Scanning
As part of a complete information security program, you need to perform frequent web application security testing. This includes scanning the entire web application attack surface with a tool designed to identify security vulnerabilities in the OWASP Top Ten and beyond, including SQL Injection, Cross-site Scripting (XSS), and local file inclusion (LFI).
Acunetix was built from the ground up for web application scanning. It can identify the full range of web application vulnerabilities on any kind of web application, from open-source content management systems like WordPress to commercial off-the-shelf frameworks to code developed specifically for your business. And it does so with a minimal rate of false positives, allowing your security team to move as quickly as possible from scan results to remediation.
With Acunetix, you do not have to sacrifice accuracy for speed. The scanning engine for the Acunetix web vulnerability scanner is optimized for speed. The cutting-edge engine provides increased scan speed for all target applications.
