Valuable log-sequence feature and quite stable but does not offer unlimited scans

Pros and Cons

  • "For us, the most valuable aspect of the solution is the log-sequence feature."
  • "The solution limits the number of scans. It would be much better if we could have unlimited scans."

What is our primary use case?

For the last two years, we've primarily used the solution for specific scanning of external web applications for some of our clients.

What is most valuable?

For us, the most valuable aspect of the solution is the log-sequence feature.

The main components covering most of the SQL injection findings are quite useful.

We've never faced any maintenance issues.

What needs improvement?

The solution limits the number of scans. It would be much better if we could have unlimited scans.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been using the solution for almost two years now.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We've found the solution to be quite stable. We haven't had any issues with it at all.

How are customer service and technical support?

For now, everything about the solution has been fine, so we haven't reached out to technical support.

Before switching to this solution we used the Burp Suite Pro. We switched because we found this solution's findings more accurate. It has better performance.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was very straightforward. It was easy. We didn't find it complex at all. The initial setup only takes one to two hours.

What about the implementation team?

I didn't implement the solution personally, however, one of my colleagues did. The installation was handled in-house.

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

We buy the license annually.

What other advice do I have?

We're Acunetix customers. I'm not sure which version number we are using, but it is the latest one.

Versatile solution that can operate both as a standalone and can be integrated as part of applications

Pros and Cons

  • "The scalability is good. The scalability is more than good because it can operate both as a standalone and it can be integrated as part of applications. So that really makes it a very, very versatile solution to have."
  • "We want to see how much bandwidth usage it consumes. When we monitor traffic we have issues with the consumption and throttling of the traffic."

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is to secure web applications, especially against cross-scripting and other forms of malware that happen at an application level.

What is most valuable?

The scalability is good. The scalability is more than good because it can operate both as a standalone and it can be integrated as part of applications. So that really makes it a very, very versatile solution to have.

What needs improvement?

We want to see how much bandwidth usage it consumes. When we monitor traffic we have issues with the consumption and throttling of the traffic. 

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been using Acunetix since 2017.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is a stable solution. It doesn't have a lot of false positives. You get your logs and reports without any problems. 

How are customer service and technical support?

I haven't contacted technical support because I'm supposed to be the first line of their support. If I need to contact their support, it's because I have problems beyond my scope. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was really straightforward. You can do it even if you're not an expert, you just need to download the appliance from their website and then you deploy. It took a few hours. 

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend Acunetix.

Everything is going cloud-based. They should consider implementing SD-WAN abilities. It will give them the longevity they need.

I would rate it an eight out of ten. Even though some solutions are cloud-native by definition, they are not really next generation because the next generation is fully cloud and properly load balanced.
