Acunetix makes it possible for you to find out about vulnerabilities in yourwebsites and web APIs.
The Acunetix scanner works by sending payloads and analyzing responses. When the web server receives the payload, it executes back-end code. If AcuSensor is installed, it analyzes the executed back-end code and provides the scanner with additional information.
When you use AcuSensor, Acunetix gets additional information from the server back end, at the time when Acunetix is scanning the web application. This additional information introduces a number of improvements.
Acunetix is not just a web vulnerability scanner. It is a complete web application security testing solution that can be used both standalone and as part of complex environments. It offers built-in vulnerability assessment and vulnerability management, as well as many options for integration with market-leading software development tools. By making Acunetix one of your security measures, you can significantly increase your cybersecurity stance and eliminate many security risks at a low resource cost.
To save resources, ease remediation, and avoid late patching, enterprises often aim to include web vulnerability tests as part of their SecDevOps processes. Acunetix is one of the best DAST tools for such a purpose due to its efficiency in both physical and virtual environments.
Acunetix is the first web security scanner on the market that is constantly being improved since 2005. It is a highly mature, specialized tool developed by web security testing experts. Such specialization made it possible to build a solution that is more effective than many bundled tools.
Acunetix is available in versions suited to different customer needs. It can be deployed locally on Linux and Microsoft Windows operating systems. You can also use it as a cloud product to save your local resources.
