With more than 13% of ecommerce websites on the Internet running on Magento open source software, Magento security is becoming more important for organizations running Magento websites. Unfortunately, despite its popularity, hundreds of Magento shops are subject to high-severity security risks and are missing critical Magento patches. This could allow attackers to easily gain access to the the web server resulting in unauthorized access, disrupt business or even, in some cases, gaining access to sensitive credit card data.
A Magento Security Scanner You Can Depend on
Acunetix is a web security scanner featuring a fully-fledged Magento security scan tool designed to be lightning-fast and dead-simple to use while running a wide variety of security tests. Additionally, Acunetix provides all the necessary features to manage and track vulnerabilities from discovery to resolution.
Speed Without Compromises
Additionally, unlike many other web vulnerability scanners, Acunetix is lightning-fast. With a re-engineered core and a highly optimized crawler, every inch of Acunetix is tuned for speed and efficiency, allowing it to scan even the largest Magento websites without breaking a sweat.
What’s more, Acunetix can throttle the speed at which a vulnerability scan runs, ensuring that even high-traffic sites can be scanned without affecting their performance.
Say Goodbye to Boring Reports
Finally, another problem that Acunetix solves, which many other web vulnerability scanners sorley lack, is the ability to produce great security reports. After a vulnerability scan is complete, Acunetix can instantly generate a wide variety of technical, regulatory, and compliance reports such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, OWASP Top 10, and many others complete with security best practices for each identified security issue. Additionally, Acunetix also allows users to export discovered vulnerabilities to issue trackers such as Atlassian Jira, GitHub, GitLab, Bugzilla, Mantis, and Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS).
Frequently asked questions
Most Magento security scanners simply check for well-known Magento vulnerabilities. Such scanners are useful only for Magento sites and they miss out on general vulnerabilities as well as any third-party software vulnerabilities. Most such scanners only give an illusion of security.
Some Magento vulnerabilities may be very serious. For example, in March 2019 researchers detected a PRODSECBUG-2198 vulnerability, which was an SQL Injection vulnerability. This vulnerability allowed attackers to steal credit card data but it could have had even more consequences such as the attacker getting control over other systems.
In addition to Magento software, you need to make sure that all your other web assets, hosts, and third-party software are safe. To do this, you need a professional web vulnerability scanner that checks not just for Magento vulnerabilities but for all types of web vulnerabilities including SQL Injections and Cross-site Scripting.
Magento suffers from the same types of vulnerabilities as other websites and web applications, such as WordPress sites, custom-made sites, etc. Acunetix is able to discover such vulnerabilities and do much more than a typical scanner. It lets you manage these vulnerabilities, too, either internally or using various third-party software.
