The reporting is pretty good. I haven't seen reporting of that level in any other tool. It also allows for segregation. If I want to generate a report regarding vulnerabilities, I can simply select that particularly vulnerable section and it will generate a report with all the work in the web application.
Similarly, for PCAD assisting, I can also generate a report — in multiple formats, including PDF, HTML, and doc files.
Segregation of reports is really, really good with Acunetix; it provides us with a lot of in-depth details. This feature stood out when comparing Acunetix with other tools.
It provides me with a list of vulnerabilities that we weren't able to identify when doing manual penetration testing. It located and picked out some hidden vulnerabilities as well, which are hard to spot with the naked eye.View full review »

What I found to be valuable was the fully automated scanner because it is really fast.
Acunetix has an awesome crawler. It gives a referral site map of near targets and also goes really deep to find all the inputs without issues. This was valuable because it helped me find some files or directories, like web admin panels without authentication, which were hidden.
Acunetix saves on the cost of time because it is fast.
When Acunetix finds a vulnerability, it also checks for a false positive so it can be a 100 percent sure about the issue that it found. The false positives are really low, maybe one percent.View full review »
I'm drawn to Information Security. I immediately look for security threats vulnerabilities. Therefore, the report generation, the reports that are being monitored are great in that they were very easy to read and understand.
It's user-friendly and the language that they use is pretty good.
Overall, the tool is very good in context. It's definitely helpful from a tech intelligence perspective and for identifying vulnerabilities. I like that we can sort the vulnerabilities based on severity levels.
The initial setup is easy.
There is a lot of documentation on their website which makes setting it up and using it quite simple.
Technical support is available 24/7.View full review »

The most important feature is that we are able to parameterize all of the attacks so that our developers can run the attacks directly from their environments and desktops. They don't need any expertise or to know the difficulties of the attacker; they just run the tool and get the results.View full review »
The scalability is more than good. It can operate both as a standalone and it can be integrated with other applications, which makes it a very versatile solution to have.
This solution is simple enough, especially with the cloud. You can download the client onto your machines and then you start filtering your traffic from there.View full review »
Executive Director at a financial services firm with 201-500 employees
We're happy with Acunetix although we're currently looking for a more cost effective solution. There might be a better product on the market and we're looking for that. What I gather from my colleagues who do the scanning is that this solution picks up any weaknesses in terms of our application setup as well as reading our application and finding the weaknesses. We need that PCI DSS report which is important for us. The solution is comprehensive and easy to use.View full review »
