We have a corporate deal and we're almost at the end of that contract. We are looking to renew Acunetix, but we were told that the price was increasing greatly because of some advanced capabilities, or miscalculations of value. It's increasing by 3.5-fold from what the initial quote was. Because of that, we have to go back to the drawing board and figure out cost-to-capability value, versus features that we could get for that same amount. At the current pricing structure, it doesn't save us money. It winds up costing the program money due to the fact that it's increasing in cost. At the time when we signed up initially, it was very beneficial because of its cost. When we looked at all other vendors and what they were asking, to provide a third of what Acunetix was capable of doing, it was an easy decision. With the IAS modules and everything else that we got as an add-on, it made it a real value compared to all the other competitors out there. But now that it's coming to a cost where it's line with market value, it becomes more of a competition. View full review »

Our license is good through June. We're really trying to ramp up here to see if it is a viable option to renew it. View full review »

The pricing and licensing are reasonable to a point. In order to run multiple scans at a time, we are going to have to purchase a 100 count license, which is overkill. Though, compared to what we were paying for, the cost seems reasonable. View full review »

Acunetix was around the same price as all the other vendors we looked at, nothing special. View full review »

When I first purchased my license the price/value was very good because I purchased a perpetual license and the annual maintenance fee was extremely competitive. Now, unfortunately, my perpetual license does not exist anymore and my maintenance costs will increase in the next years. All things considered, I think it has a good price/value ratio.

Licensing is on a yearly basis. don't remember the exact cost, it's not about the cost, it's about the flexibility. We have a lot of websites to scan and we are looking for fewer instances and to scan more websites. The costs aren't very expensive. It costs around $3000 or $4000. There aren't additional costs.

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