Exporting scan results to WAFs - Introduction

The detection of vulnerabilities in a web application is the first step. Ideally, these vulnerabilities are fixed rapidly after they are identified, however, experience shows that this is not always the case. If vulnerabilities cannot be fixed in a timely fashion, the next best option is to mitigate the risk.

An Acunetix Premium scan can be exported to a format supported by the most popular Web Application Firewalls (WAFs), including:

How to export a scan result as a WAF rule

  1. Log in to Acunetix.
  2. From the main menu, select Scans.
  3. From the list of scans, select the scan result.
  4. On the Scan page, select the Export to drop-down.
  5. Choose the type of WAF file you wish to export.

Wait for a while, so Acunetix can generate the file. After the export, you can import the file into the WAF.
