Updating Acunetix 360 On-Premises

Acunetix 360 is available as both an On-Demand and On-Premises solution.

The On-Premises solution runs on your servers and network, so you need to update it manually when there is an update. Updating it allows you to scan your web application with new security checks and improvements against the latest threats to security.

This topic explains how to update Acunetix 360 On-Premises. In order to install and configure the On-Premises, see Installing and Configuring Acunetix 360 On-Premises.


While updating Acunetix 360 On-Premises, it is recommended to pause any scans.

To receive updates, you may need to whitelist www.acunetix.com and https://update.acunetix360.com.


.NET framework 4.7.2 is required for the latest update. The installers will configure .NET Framework 4.7.2 if it's not available on the target system
