Acunetix has helped us to identify problems as well as to increase the trust level between the project and client, following years of pen tests.
Initially we were thrilled to run Acunetix to find and fix some rather large vulnerabilities we had no idea existed. Since then, we have moved to a more comprehensive strategy that includes multiple scan targets running in tandem with our software development lifecycle. When our customers ask us if our software is security tested, Acunetix gives us the confidence to say it is.
Acunetix v12 is crazy fast and the concurrent scans went way up! I could only do 10 concurrent scans before, but now I am running over double the amount concurrently. This is a huge increase in performance and capacity. I was going to add 2 more worker scanners, but with v12 this is no longer necessary, saving greatly on our monthly costs. Also because of the way targets our now counted, my Target estimate has reduced considerably. Great Job!
We utilize Acunetix to more thoroughly assess internet-facing websites and servers. Acunetix helps us identify vulnerabilities in conjunction with other vulnerability scanning applications. Acunetix has been a more reliable application when discovering / determining different types of malicious code injection vulnerabilities (SQL, HTML, CGI, etc).
We use it to scan new application launches, and use it yearly to audit new development. It has allowed us to catch a vulnerability in a piece of software from a vendor.
We use Acunetix as part of our Security in the SDLC and to test code in DEV and SIT before being promoted to Production.
We use Acunetix for initial site enumeration and to ensure that we cover all common surface area and attacks with at least a minimum level of testing. Most of our testing is completed manually and we find logic issues, and so on, but occasionally we focus on difficult to find issues instead of simple issues, like a file upload flaw hidden in the corner of a site that Acunetix brings to our attention.
Acunetix runs a set of hundreds, if not thousands, of tricky tests, and builds up a list of very informative reports afterwards. The most important issues it finds, are Blind SQL injections and XSS. It also gives recommendations regarding less important, but still notable security parts and vulnerabilities, which could be present on a website. Here on miniBB, we have plans to co-operate closely with Acunetix also for the future releases of miniBB. We take care of our security and any corporate customers should do too. This scanner looks very promising and could protect your website from lots of problems even at this stage.
It’s taken our penetration testing to a new level!
Acunetix has helped make our application stronger and given our clients the assurance that their data is safe.
Acunetix WVS surpasses other web application vulnerability scanners out there, both in terms of its ability to find vulnerabilities and reduce the false positives that I have to deal with. We use the consulting license and actually use it to help improve the security posture of many other organizations. While automated vulnerability testing is only one piece of the puzzle in app sec, it does its piece very well. This is why I have renewed my license for the 3rd year in a row.

Easy and comprehensive!
Having used Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner (consultant edition) since 2009, we find it an essential tool in protecting our interior critical system and helping our customers to protect their own systems. We had previously used IBM appscan, but have found Acunetix to have a more user friendly interface, be simpler to install, and runs faster. We use both Apache and IIS servers and technologies including PHP, .NET, C, Perl and Java, for which we have found Acunetix to be very effective. We also find it very well priced in comparison to its competitors.”

I had used Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner (WVS) a couple of years ago to determine how much it could help my vulnerability assessment efforts, given I was formally trained to pen-test networks and hosts but knew little about web and database apps. I tested a few products, including some from HP and IBM. Having used Acunetix WVS further this year, I was especially impressed since it performed a remarkably detailed and capable scan with very little effort. Reporting is comprehensive, absent of too many false positives, and Acunetix WVS produces neat and understandable reports. The layout is intuitive enough to start basic testing and yet the product is wildly powerful, leaving you room to do so much more.
