Integrating Acunetix 360 with Kenna

Kenna is an issue tracking system that specializes in risk-based vulnerability management. Kenna provides a security platform that calculates which vulnerabilities present the highest risk and de-prioritizes those that don't, then notifies the right people of the top vulnerabilities to achieve the greatest possible cyber risk reduction.

This topic explains how to configure Acunetix 360 to send a detected vulnerability to Kenna.
