Acunetix Vulnerability Scanner Review

Fantastic reporting output but vulnerable requests currently need to be picked from the report and repeated with other tools

What is our primary use case?

Assessing top OWASP in applications.

How has it helped my organization?

Greater confidence in go-live for multiple application releases over their release cycles.

What is most valuable?

  • Login Sequence Recorder
  • Scan throttling
  • Fantastic reporting output.

What needs improvement?

Acunetix runs the automated vulnerablity check scan and provides a report. testers/developers need to copy these vulnerable http/https request from the report, use other external tools like postman to resend the request observe the vulnerability and exploit them. If this was available within the Acunetix tool would have been a great feature.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

How was the initial setup?

Installation was quite simple.

What about the implementation team?

I was the vendor who utilized this tool for the customer.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Tool is quite expensive though compared to other tools. We tried with a term license.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Zap, BurpSuite where other tools evaluated.
