Integrating Acunetix 360 with Mattermost

Mattermost is an open-source, flexible, messaging platform that enables secure team collaboration. Mattermost is a Slack alternative and from an Acunetix 360 viewpoint its integration procedure works like Slack. A new incoming webhook is created as a Mattermast instance. It is then pasted into the Acunetix 360 Mattermost integration.
