Fast, Flexible, Continuous External Vulnerability ScanningThe modern web is full of complexities, and as such, many other external vulnerability scanners and black box scanners built a decade ago, can’t properly scan, large and complex web applications quickly. With a re-engineered core, and a highly optimized crawler, every inch of Acunetix is tuned for speed, efficiency and accuracy, allowing it to complete even the largest external vulnerability scans without breaking a sweat. What’s more, in Acunetix it’s possible to throttle the speed at which an external vulnerability scan runs, ensuring that even high-traffic sites can be scanned without affecting their performance. You can also schedule external vulnerability scans to run at specific times of a day, week or month, or even define you own custom schedule. You also have the option of running scans on a continuous basis with Acunetix only running a quick scan every day of the week, with a full scan run once a week. This ensures that any new vulnerabilities that may have been introduced in-between full scans get picked up by Acunetix immediately.
Simple Vulnerability Management and ReportingAnother problem that Acunetix solves which many other external vulnerability scanners surley lack is the ability to produce great reports. After an external vulnerability scan is complete, Acunetix can instantly generate a wide variety of technical and regulatory and compliance reports such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, OWASP Top 10 and many others. Additionally, Acunetix also allows users to export discovered vulnerabilities to third party issue trackers such as Atlassian JIRA, GitHub, GitLab, Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS), Bugzilla, and Mantis. One of the biggest issues with conventional external vulnerability scanners is that they simply show a list of scan results. Acunetix takes a different approach in that once a vulnerability is found during a scan, it is automatically cataloged and assigned a status of Open. After the vulnerability gets fixed, Acunetix may be used to re-test the vulnerability to make sure it’s properly fixed, and then automatically marks it as Fixed. All information is available at a glance in the Acunetix Dashboard. With multi-user, multi-role capabilities of Acunetix, users can only see what they’re meant to.
